Performing on race day or pounding out a training run deserves a polished short built for the grind. The athletic design finds inner strength from a nylon/spandex fabric that is tough enough to withstand brush, formulated to enhance wicking and treated to reduce odor for long days on the trail or road. Wide waistband comfort and higher rise coverage combine for a functional-yet-flattering fit that stays put. A zippered hip pocket stashes keys, cards or a phone securely.
Fortis™, built with stretch interlock technology, is an extremely flexible nylon/spandex fabric. Its sueded finish offers a soft handfeel, while moisture management and an anti-microbial treatment improve comfort and reduce odor during any active pursuit.
