If you're like us, you probably wonder why the shoulder seasons tend to feel so long? Both spring and fall seem to drag, but given that riding conditions are at their best at these times of year, we let it slide. However, true to the seasonal theme of transition, the required apparel is in flux. Full tights are too hot, and shorts are out of the question. So, what do you do? You wear the 2XU Cycle Women's Knickers, of course.
For the main body fabric, 2XU decide to use its 200g NEO KINTETIC Lycra, which provides stretch with light compression characteristics. NEO KINETIC aids in the increase of blood flow through the legs in order to reduce fatigue. Because of this, it also shortens recovery time, so you're able to get back on the road more quickly after a hard workout.
For the fit, the Cycle knickers feature a multi-panel construction in order to complement the female form. In fact, you'll find that 2XU actually constructed the cut of the knickers on a contour. So, the knickers' shape is predicated on your body in the cycling position. This way, when you move in and out of the saddle, the tights will move with you, not against you. Additionally, 2XU incorporated a flatlock stitch construction to reduce abrasion. The knickers also feature seamless leg grippers that reduce chafing and irritation,while allowing pressure to be more evenly distributed at the calf.
As for the chamois, 2XU chose the women-specific La Rosa insert. Utilizing a variable density support pattern, the La Rosa focuses support where your body needs it, not where it doesn't. Accordingly, chafing is reduced, while pressure is evenly distributed away from the nerves. In fact, you'll find that the chamois density is graduated from 120 at the rear to 40 at the nose. And while pressure is sorted through this design, abrasion is further dealt with through the insert's membrane technology. This system not only provides a soft interface between your body, but it also regulates moisture buildup and evaporation.
The 2XU Cycle Women's Knickers are available in the color Black/black and in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large.
