The Fierlan high waisted padded cycling shorts are a great staple for female cyclists. We use a women’s specific 3/8mm chamois pad in our shorts which is ideal for middle distances with a saddle time of 4-5 hours. You can watch your cycling times improve as you ride in comfort. We've purposely kept the styling simple, clean and elegant without compromising on performance. This means that our padded shorts fit just as well on a competitive road race as they do for your spin class at the gym. The panelled construction is super flattering and super comfortable so, if you're a beginner looking to take your leisure or commuter cycling to the next level, these are definitely the shorts for you. Instead of silicon grippers that so often dig into your thighs our fold-over leg opening keeps the shorts legs down and your comfort level up. The shorts are made of MITI, high-density lycra fabric which means no distracting shadows or see-through patches. We’ve also added a zipped pocket this season to keep valuables safe. You'll be able to carry an item as large as an iPhone 6 without affecting your comfort. The Fierlan range is designed in the UK and manufactured in Italy.
