Description

Easy to throw on for quick rides and with bib-free convenience under baggies and other layers (especially when nature calls!), the Rhythm Elite Shorts will keep you pedalling in comfort.

  • Mid-distance chamois pad for up to 5-hour rides
  • Deep waistband for a secure and comfortable fit
  • Soft, matt-finish material looks less lycra-y!

Time in the saddle can feel less like miles of smiles and more like kilometres of grimaces with the wrong clothing. The Rhythm Elite Short uses a mid-distance chamois pad to minimise chafing and provide up to 5 hours of bum cushioning. Made from dual-density foam, it contours to your body to relieve pressure where you need it.

We’ve used a high-stretch wicking fabric that draws sweat quickly away from your body to keep you cool and dry. This soft material has a matt finish that is less “hey everyone, I’m a cyclist” shiny than typical lycra and the durable knit stands up better to run-ins with hostile hedgerows.

A deep waistband provides a secure and comfortable fit without digging in and the elastic hem grippers stop the legs from riding up. The bib-less design also means you can wear them under a t-shirt and outer shorts without having to completely strip off every time you need the toilet! This makes them an ideal liner short for wearing under your mountain bike baggies or touring attire (zip-off trousers, a checked shirt and a five-day-old base layer of sweat and sun cream).

Sustainability and Product Care

Product Care Information

It’s important to keep your bib shorts regularly to stop funky bacteria building up. And by ‘funky’ we don’t mean bacteria with a liking for James Brown. Wash your shorts inside out on a delicate cycle at 30°C or hand-wash with lukewarm water. Use a non-biological detergent or pure soap. Do NOT use fabric conditioners or softeners. Rinse thoroughly in clean water. Allow to dry on the line out of direct sunlight. Tumble dry on low heat if you're in a hurry.
