Mavic Bellissima Short - Women's $149.90
A compressive fit and technical features allows Mavic's Bellissima Women's Shorts to provide comfort for base miles or suiting up for race day. Constructed from Mavic's Sleek Power fabric (a lightly structured, highly elastic blend of polyamide, elastane, and Lycra), the Bellissima effectively pulls perspiration away from the skin in order to keep you dry.
While wicking capabilities are expected, Sleek Power also features a higher-than-average fiber weight along with a dense knit. As a result, the shorts provide compressive support to alleviate fatigue-inducing effects of road vibration and muscle oscillation. And, it doesn't sacrifice flexibility -- Sleek Power has a better-than-normal stretch property so you're able to pedal freely and maneuver around your bike, without pinching or discomfort.
No pair of shorts are complete without a quality chamois. And in this application, Mavic opted for its Ergo 3D pad. It provides anatomically correct support that's supplied by three different densities and six different thicknesses. A moisture wicking, low density, and open cell foam pulls perspiration away from the skin. Additionally, it has an antimicrobial treatment that combats bacteria, keeping both the insert and your skin clean and comfortable.
This first layer is incredibly soft against the skin in order to prevent irritation, but for long-distance comfort, it uses two more higher density foams. Essentially, the reason for varying these sections is that your body doesn't require the same level of support throughout. Instead, you'll find that the chamois provides more cushion at the sit bones, and less towards the front.
To securely hold the Bellissima in place, Mavic incorporated its Ergo Waist -- a wide, highly elastic insert with silicon grippers to effectively prevent pinching throughout the movements of cycling. The Mavic Bellissima Women's Shorts are available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in one color, Black/white
