Your three-season go-to bottom.
For sheer versatility, it's tough to beat the Zero RH+ Women's Up & Down Knicker. Lightweight Firedry Gold 100 fabric and the added sun- and wind-protection of covered knees mean the Up & Down is ready to take you from mid-spring, through summer, and well into fall riding. The next-to-skin form fit is equally suited to training or racing, road, mountain, or cyclocross.
The Women's Up & Down Knicker is made with Zero RH+'s Firedry Gold 100 fabric. This moisture-wicking breathable fabric keeps you dry and comfortable during hot summer rides. Firedry is offered in four different weights–Gold 100 being the lightest. This four-way stretch material is lighter than traditional fabrics, is abrasion- and wear-resistant, and provides good aerodynamics.
The Up & Down Knicker comes with Zero RH+'s Uranus chamois. This hand-sewn chamois provides shock-absorbing cushion to reduce fatigue and numbness over the course of the ride. The Uranus' exceptional moisture management keeps you dry and comfortable when you most need to be. The gender-specific Uranus pad is made from high-density foam with a low compression coefficient that ensures effectiveness after hundreds of miles in the saddle.
Zero RH+ gave the Up & Down Knicker a Form Fit. This means it adheres perfectly to the body's lines. It's their tightest fit, and is equally at home training or racing. Ultra-flat seams were used throughout to reduce chafing and irritation.
The Zero RH+ Up & Down Knicker comes in sizes X-Small through X-Large and is available in the colors Black, Black/cherry, and Black/acid green.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Fabric is soft, stretchy, sleek and doesn't pinch-in anywhere. Chamois is of high performance quality. Only wish the stripes were on both sides, but its a sharp, quality, technical knicker anyway.
