The HC shorts feature Mavic’s 3D endurance pad, a multi-density design which fits perfectly around your sit bones. It’s channelled too, which keeps things dry and comfortable.
The main structure is a mix of highly elastic Lycra Power, which holds and supports well, with the breathable weave of the white detailing giving a constant airflow that’s great on warm rides but chilling on cooler days. Because these shorts are designed as endurance bibs, it’s good to see the inclusion of a zip fly for ‘comfort’ breaks. Sizing is spot on.
