This year, thelightweight, durable stretch woven mountain bike short now has a refined fit for women with a slightly trimmer leg and a shorter rise to ensure optimal range of motion.
The Glidepath is built with Soma 2-Way stretch woven fabric, offering astounding durability and resistance to abrasion despite its light weight. The Soma is also treated with a durable water repellant (DWR) coating that quickly sheds moisture, and makes them incredibly quick drying if they do eventually get wet. Detailed patterning allows mobility and freedom of movement with minimal bulk. The crotch gusset is patterned and the leg articulated for the mid pedal stroke position. As a result the Glidepath moves smoothly and does not get caught on the saddle regardless of rider position. The Glidepath is compatible with most non-downhill knee pads.
Front hand pockets hold quick-access items, while two zipped, side utility pockets protect your essentials. These pockets are angled from back to front allowing you to carry items comfortably and without interfering with your pedalling motion. Each utility pocket also has a cell phone sleeve to secure and separate your cargo. The Glidepath has low profile built-in waist adjusters, but also has loops for riders who prefer a belt.
