Bring the heat while you keep your cool.

Mavic designed the Women's Athena Cycling Shorts with a classic, streamlined look, plus they upgraded the chamois and the fabrics to boost comfort and function. Slip these on during summer training rides when comfort is key.

  • Ergo 3D chamois uses progressive, three-dimensional,  multi-layered, perforated cushioning to keep you comfortable while it wicks moisture
  • Sleek Power fabric lends a lightweight feel that moves with your body
  • Hot Ride design helps your body stay cool on those warm summer days
  • Exo leg grippers keep the shorts from riding up without digging into your skin
  • Reflective highlights helps four-wheeled folks spot you easier

  • 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

Here's what others have to say...



  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

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.
