The 7Mesh MK3 Short is a refined, long-distance road cycling short built to take you to the end of arduous century's and heroic training rides in total comfort. It's a great option for riders that don't care much for bib straps, yet still want a high-end short for their riding endeavors. With a top-level Elastic Interface endurance chamois, a supportive contoured waist, and clean finish tailoring, the MK3 short ensures any time in the saddle is time well spent.
At the heart of the short is a custom Elastic Interface chamois designed with high-density foam through the center channel, and a completely air permeable perforated top layer. This means the MK3 breathes, cushions and feels amazing on sensitive in-between areas, delivering unmatched comfort in the saddle no matter how long you ride or how aggressive your position is.
Clean finish tailoring throughout the short places seams away from movement zones for a smooth surface where it matters most. At the waist, the MK3's contoured pattern keeps everything under control no matter how many hills you climb. The fabric itself is slightly more compressive than previous versions, and features seamless raw edges with printed silicone grippers. By extending the main fabric to the hem, the MK3 does away with uncomfortable grippers and pressure points, helping the short to fit smoothly and evenly across the leg.

Excellent, skin fit chamois short
- I've put it through the wringer
I have been riding in these shorts for a few months, and am very pleased with the performance of the chamois and the other materials in these shorts. They feel invisible when I ride, allowing full range of motion without resistance and never shifting out of place no matter how hard I'm going at it. They are designed to be skin-fit so an apparent smallness is to be expected, but I am at the very bottom of the size range for XS and I still found them tight to pull on the first few times. They have broken in a bit with use and now go on easier while still offering the very high performance fit. Now it feels like they've adapted to my body and become a perfect second skin that provides great cushioning while I ride. I use them on their own, and also under softshell pants in colder conditions. In both situations, they feel great and perform very well! I also really appreciate the clean finish on the rear of the shorts, which makes the aesthetic more refined and saves me from striding around the grocery store while people double take at my padded butt.
