Fusion of style and support.
The Maloja Women's GabyM. 1/2 Shorts emphasize color-rich styling that's more lively and expressive than the vast majority of cycling apparel. However, that's not to say these shorts sacrifice support or functionality in favor of style. Lycra 190-gram fabric stabilizes and supports key muscle groups for reduced fatigue in the saddle, regardless if you're training on the road or riding cross-country loops across your favorite forest. Laser-cut leg openings comfortably stay in place during rapid pedaling movement with the use of a silicone lamination.
Perhaps most impressive, the women-specific HD-Ergonomic chamois uses high-density foam with shaped wings for a body-conforming fit. Ready for long hours in the saddle and grueling distances on both the road and trail, its multi-thickness foam smooths out fatiguing road vibration and jarring trail surfaces. Plus, quick-drying Coolmax fabric lining and 5mm breathable perforations ensure blissful comfort on the warmest rides of the year. As if that's not enough, the chamois employs a Polygiene odor-control finish for lasting freshness after strenuous rides.

Wanted to love them
I really wanted to like these shorts. The chamois looks like it'd be great but the lycra material of the shorts is so thin its see-through. The charcoal color is also pretty drab and unattractive. I had to return them.

These are so comfortable. I have 2 pairs and use them for road and mtn biking. The chamois pad provides good cushioning. The lycra is a little different than my many other shorts - it's not as thick, which makes it a lot more comfortable. Somehow it stays snug, but is not binding or pinching on my lower abdomen or thighs. The front waist sits lower than other shorts. It doesn't provide that super grippy feeling of "support" lycra, which is why I like it. It washes well and so far has not become baggy.
