The Elite also fit nicely on a variety of body types and are a great go-to short for a wide variety of riding situations, but particularly shine in hot, humid weather.
The Elite Transfer fabric with In-R-Cool® powered by coldblack® retains its fantastic durability and features built- in technology to reflect the sun's rays and reduce fabric surface temperature by up to 35º F /14º C under direct sunlight. In-R-Cool helps to regulate body temperature to get more performance and enjoyment on those pavement scorching days. The new panel design hugs the muscles for mild compression and comfort. To keep the short in place, lightweight, elastic Elite Transfer fabric is used in the leg hem, and features a soft silicone gripper.
