A better pair of shorts.
Capo is all about combining Italian design sensibilities with high-end modern technology, and the SC Donna Women's Cycling Shorts are firmly in line with this philosophy. The Donna shorts forgo bibs in favor of a simple, compressive form that fits so well it makes bibs unnecessary. They're carefully constructed from HG Lycra, a muscle-supporting material that reduces vibration to conserve energy, while increasing blood flow for extended endurance and faster recovery.
Capo constructs the Donna with ergonomic panels and carefully located seams to increase flexibility and reduce rubbing, and they're finished with a comfortable, overlapping waistband that won't pinch or slide up. Between you and saddle, the Women's Corsa SE EIT chamois provides lightweight, breathable, and ergonomic cushioning, with carbon fibers that fight odor-producing microbes so you can wear the Donna during multi-day tours without worrying.

I really love my CAPO shorts. I have two pair. They are flexible and support at the same time. The front cross band is genius. I was looking for a pair of CAPOs that would be just above the knee for the winter. I opened this package and the fabric is stiff with no flex. It is a mid quad length as well. I'm shipping it back. I'm sad...
Great for very long rides
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
These shorts are awesome!! They look very high quality, the fabric is not see-through at all and looks and feels great! I like going for long rides and thus need very good chamois. I also usually get a skin rash from the friction between skin and chamois no matter how much or which chamois cream I use. I wore these shorts yesterday on an 8 hour bike ride and they were absolutely awesome! These shorts have awesome chamois and I will probably only use them for the very long rides in order to make them last longer. I purchased them in XS because this size usually works for me. These shorts may run a little smaller than shorts from some other brands and everything is a little tighter. But I think that may have actually reduced the friction between my skin and the chamois. For some reason I had way less skin rash after this 8 hour bike ride than after the 2 hour bike ride I had the day before with my old shorts!
I really hope these shorts last long. They are fantastic!
