Visibility for the fluo challenged

Searching for the perfect cycling short is about as easy as bathing suit shopping under universally flattering fluorescent light. Hincapie makes the search easy, at least for the cycling crowd, with its women's Chromatic Short.

AT2 Tour Lycra Power is flatlock seamed creating the panels on the shorts. At 225 gsm, this mid-weight stretch knit moves with you while retaining its shape. The shorts' six panel design is finished with a soft, wide flattering waistband that doesn't dig into your stomach or bladder.

The leg openings feature HyperOptic elastane. This multi-layered fabric not only holds the shorts tight against your legs without being restrictive, it also has a micro-eyelet pattern. Bonded beneath this layer is reflective material. In daylight, the dyed color of the elastane is visible. At dusk or night, the micro-eyelets allow light to reflect off of the 'hidden' hi-visibility material and the fabric appears illuminated. Your style won't be compromised by garish layers of reflectors, but you will still be easily seen.

About half the battle of finding the perfect cycling short is in picking the chamois. The Chromatic shorts use an Anatomical Power Chamois with EIT Max Fabric and high density foam inserts. This women's specific insert is several densities of foam bonded to a wicking fabric. Not only are your sit bones supported and your soft tissue areas cushioned, you stay dry and comfortable.

The Hincapie Chromatic Short is available in sizes X-Small to X-Large and in four colors: White/orchid, Shale/sunshine, Grape/black, and Black/white.
