Perfect for summer cruising.
Summer weather lends itself to post-ride activities — concerts, farmers 'markets, drinks — and while we're not afraid to hang out in Lycra, more relaxed kit like the Giro New Road Mobility Women's Overshorts can be a godsend in these situations. They have casual looks and a comfortable stretch cotton fabric that's functional on the bike and around town, with four classic pockets and a contoured waistband for full coverage when you're in the saddle and a great fit when you're bellying up to the bar or loading up on local produce.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I bought these for my wife to commute in, but they weren't quite what she was looking for. She went with some Pearl Izumi shorts instead.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
I was surprised at how comfy these shorts are. The boyfriend commented that they don't even look like bike shorts. Lots of stretch. You definitely have to size up. I did and glad for it, i think my normal pant size would have been too tight.
Active shorts that move with you
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: medium
The thing I love most about these shorts is how much I can move in them. I have full range of motion, no problem. It's fantastic. No claustrophobic, butt grabbing feeling. Just comfortable on and off the bike.
