Charge down the mountain.
Proper fitting baggies for ladies are to be coveted, with so many ill-fitting options made from flimsy materials that don't stand up to the pedal-mashing and berm-blasting dominating the market. With all of these sub-par options, we can't help but be a little too-excited for the Ion Traze AMP Bike Shorts for women — a short that's ready to let us tackle the whole mountain without thinking twice, while offering support and stretch. The Traze AMP bike shorts are designed for ripping up and down with reinforced seams, and 4-way stretch that lets us move freely when we're popping off of rollers and weaving through treelines.
The Traze AMP Bike Shorts are made from a polyester-elastane blend that offers just the give we want when charging big lines, without feeling loose and sloppy, and fits with a generous inseam that allows pairing with knee pads when you want a little backup protection. The inner thigh is equipped with laser-cut Jet_Stream ventilation system that allows for breathing when you're pedaling your way up steep pitches that get you sweating so you can stay comfortable for longer. The shorts also feature triple-stitched seams in the easy-to-blow-out areas, like the inner thigh and crotch, so you don't have to worry about splitting the shorts when you get caught on your saddle or take a tumble. Adjustable waist tabs make it easy to dial in the perfect fit without a belt, and two hand pockets keep your cards and essentials secure when you're pedaling along.

- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I purchased the black shorts for my wife. They looked stylish with the details on the side of the leg. The fabric is tough but incorporates a four-way-stretch, which is an awesome feature. Although these shorts are made out of a comfortable and stretchy material, my wife was unable to find a pair that fit her appropriately. She's 5'7" and weighs 165 lbs. The mediums were too tight around the thighs and the larges fit on the thighs but were too big for the waist.
- Fit: True to size
Love the lightweight, and the fit is great
