Ale use a variety of fabrics for their PRR 2. 0 Agonista Shorts that each contribute a specific attribute in key areas of the shorts, to deliver an incredibly lightweight, highly breathable and comfortable short. For example, the side panels and the upper sections are made with Air Cell Lycra; this fabric helps remove sweat quickly to the outside leaving skin drier, whilst also being very quick drying so you don't chill. Grooves in the fabric also allows maximum airflow to create a cooling effect and mximise sweat uptake and dispersal. Read more… This makes the shorts ideal for high intensity riding in hot weather. Meanwhile, the Leg Stability System keeps the shorts in place thanks to silicon threads interwoven through the fabric, and thanks to the ultra-thin construction keeps weight to a bare minimum. Using flat seams throughout the shorts also ensures chafing is minimised, no rubbing or irritation as you pedal. Ale's “8HF” pad utilises an elastic micro fibre with memory padding, strategically positioned at the saddle contact points. In the perineal and ischiatic area, the 120 kg maximum density padding, is calibrated and breathable ensuring utmost support against bumps and vibrations from the road. The central relief channel was developed to protect the nerve endings for improved support over longer distances. The lateral shaped wings are flexible and follow the body for complete support and comfort when pedalling. For fast racing and training in hot weather you'll find few shorts that are the equal of Ale's PRR 2. 0 Agonista shorts. A perfect fit, high performance fabrics and long distance seat pad make them suited to tough Grand Fondo's, chain gang rides and ultra-endurance efforts.
