The bib-free goddess.

Considering their namesake, Mavic's Athena Women's Cycling Shorts have some Olympian sandals to fill. The Skin Power fabric lives up to the billing, though, moving with you in the saddle while still conferring light compression for a confident, fatigue-reducing fit. Mavic finishes the Athena Shorts with the progressive cushioning of its Ergo 3D chamois and a pair of Ergo Grip Race leg bands for an ambrosial fit that'll leave you spinning in comfort across the ages.

  • Skin Power material is gently compressive and abrasion-resistant
  • Tri-density Ergo 3D insert stretches and breathes
  • Ergo Grip Race leg bands keep the multi-panel construction in place
  • Silicone grip at the waist and legs ensures coverage

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 5'8"
    Weight: 150 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

These shorts are fantastic for several reasons:
1-The silicone grippers on the legs are comfy and keep the shorts in place.
2-The leg bands on are not too tight for those with more bulky muscles.
3-The chamois is not too thick and not too thin. Just right and great for long rides.
4-The length is great, not too short, not too long.
5-The waistband compression is comfortable.
6-They are super-cute on!

I bought a pair of these from somewhere other than Backcountry, and loved them so much I bought another pair. Although I wish I would have bought both from BC.Com as the pricing can't be beat.

I am 5'8" with an athletic build and the medium fit perfectly.


Super comfy!

    Super comfortable on the waist line and quads. The chamois is very comfy as well. Love! Thinking about ordering another pair.
