Description

Chameleon.

Virtually no cyclist is one-dimensional enough to fall into a single category. Commuter, weekend rambler, long-ranging tourer, crit masher — we tend to cycle through disciplines like a chameleon cycles through shades of green. Given this tendency to wear different hats, POC is expanding its line of cycling kit so we can match those hats with use-appropriate shorts. The Fondo Women's Short Tights are a nod to the rides where we're counting road-side cafes, not intervals, and the most competitive part of the day is a toss-up between the state line sprint and the hustle to the coffee shop counter. After all, not every ride is race day, and sometimes a slower pace just provides a better opportunity to appreciate the joy of pedaling a bicycle.

The shorts are made with a synthetic blend that's based on polyamide (nylon) instead of polyester and features a lower percentage of elastane than POC's racing kit. The trade-off is less stretch, so the Fondo isn't as painted-on as aerodynamic racing shorts, but more durability, so it holds up better under the abuse of long days in the saddle. The Fondo's four-panel design allows POC to map the body's contours without constriction, and the high, stretchy waist and partial silicone leg grippers keep the women-specific shape in place.

The included Fondo WO chamois is built with the same silicone VPDS inserts found in POC's Aerofoil racing bibs, but the padding is shaped for long-mile comfort while in a more upright posture. This is yet another indication that the Fondo Short Tights are for sportives, base miles, and the like, rather than a frenetic hour spent in the drops while rocketing through 90-degree corners in a downtown crit circuit. The Fondo WO chamois still benefits from the same strategic support, vibration reduction, and airflow channels, just with a less-aggressive posture in mind.

Chamois okay, leg grippers/seam bad

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

The shorts are fairly well fitting, I'm 5'4" 125lbs generally a S in Giordana, rather liked the waist/construction on top. I did NOT like the seams along the front of the legs, especially where the cuff/silicone start, I could feel the seam digging into my leg the whole time while just trying these on. No matter how I adjusted, could not get the seam to stop pressing. Chamois felt okay, but never got to really try them out.

Wife's New Favorite Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: xs

They are a very dark navy that does in fact look black. They are tight fitting but the waist band doesn't dig in, the legs fit snuggly but not too tight, the padding is comfortable without being too bulky. Ordered another pair because they are so comfortable.

Not that great - and definitely not navy

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

I'm 5'7 and 132lb and bought a small based on reviews from other sites. I thought they were snug but could have worked. The reason I wanted them was they appear navy online. They are not navy IRL - they are black - and shiny. The chamois is very thin in the front - more like a tri short. I was not impressed for the price so am not keeping them.
