You may like the freedom of baggy shorts, but hours and hours of rough roads and rutted singletrack work their evil magic to rob your legs of power. Take some of the edge off without compromising your style with Mavic's HC Shorts.
In the world of professional cycling, HC stands for Hors Categorie, that out-of-category climb that only the fittest pros dance up. Well, true to their name, the Mavic HC Shorts stand tall above the rest. Constructed from Matrix Power fabric, they not only wick moisture to keep you cool and dry during blazing hot rides, but they also function as a medium-weight compression fabric. This minimizes vibration in your muscles, which, in turn, reduces fatigue. The shorts were sewn using a seamless construction and silicone leg grippers hold them in place so they won't creep up.
Mavic's HC Shorts wouldn't be worthy of their name if it weren't for the Ergo 3D insert that's featured. The Ergo 3D is a variable thickness chamois with 6mm of padding under the sit bones to 2mm at the periphery. A channel down the middle helps to avoid pressure on sensitive body parts, and the multi-density foam tailors the cushioning. In addition, the entire chamois is covered in antimicrobial fabric, and it stretches to conform to your body shape so that it won't bunch as you ride.
The Mavic HC Shorts are available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the colors Black/folio, Black/white, and Black.
