Setting out to design the best trail shorts possible, the Louis Garneau Women's Zappa Shorts bring adjustable venting, technical fabrics, and integrated padding to your singletrack adventures. DirtMax softshell fabric is pliable and abrasion-resistant, with a DWR finish to repel passing showers and trail muck. Dura-X panels increase durability by withstanding friction. TechFit promotes flexibility for navigating technical trails. Another stand-out feature is the addition of zippered air-intake vents. These side vents feature a reverse-zip closure, maximizing airflow when you're overheating. Adding functional storage, multiple pockets secure cash, keys, energy-boosting nutrition, and other small accessories.
The Zappa's relaxed fit stays true to its trail-riding pedigree, yet its hook-and-loop leg tabs reduce excess bagginess. Perhaps most impressive, the Drytex 2002 liner short features a women-specific Silvercool chamois. This removable liner short swaps with any of Louis Garneau's liner shorts, should you wear these shorts for multiple rides before washing. Its Silvercool chamois keeps you comfortable in the saddle by soaking up excess vibration from jarring trail surfaces. Breathable perforations increase moisture transport, and its antimicrobial treatment ensures lasting freshness.
