Sleek and fast.

Mavic's Bellissima Women's Shorts provide the compressive fit and technical features that're required to ride with peak form. So, whether you're hitting base miles or suiting up for race day, the Bellissima will easily find its way to being your 'go-to.'

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 and comfortable. However, while wicking capabilities are an expected touch, Sleek Power is only starting to show its form. As a certified Power Lycra, this fabric features a higher-than-average fiber weight along with a dense knit. And as a result, the material provides a compressive support that alleviates the fatigue-inducing effects of road vibration and muscle oscillation. So, you'll be able to deliver more power to the pedals for a longer period of time. However, don't think that this benefit comes at the cost of sacrificed flexibility. In fact, Sleek Power has a better-than-normal stretch property that's been engineered into the material. So, you're able to pedal freely, and maneuver around your bike, without any pinching or discomfort.

Of course, though, no pair of shorts are complete without a quality chamois. And in this application, Mavic opted for its Ergo 3D pad. It provides and 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 securely in place, Mavic incorporated its Ergo Waist. Basically, this is a wide, highly elastic insert with silicon grippers that effectively prevents any pinching throughout the movements of cycling.

To securely hold the Bellissima securely in place, Mavic's Ergo Waist, a highly elastic insert with silicon grippers, is extra wide to prevent pinching.

The Mavic Bellissima Women's Shorts are available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the colors Black and Black/white.

Be ware!

    These are nice shorts. However, the chamois sucks! I purchased a size small and the padding is of cheap quality and too big for the shorts.



      These shorts are very comfy and I love the way they look! I am very glad I got them. I got a medium even though I thought it might be too large, and the fitting is perfect.


      Not recommended for smaller women

      • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      We got these as knickers, and they fit fine on a small woman EXCEPT the pad. The chamois is just too large for her size. To me it seems as though Mavic chose to use one size pad for all sizes of shorts. That is efficient for them, but for the woman with small hips that is an answer that does not work. So the shorts are on their way back. My suggestion is that you are small or extra small, you be careful with these shorts.

      You are so right about the chamois. I purchased a size small and the chamois is awful.
