The Nalini Women's Ride Lady Shorts bring together the perfect mix of comfort and support for any adventure out on the road. Built to serve as a tight-fitting second skin of sorts, these shorts boast just the right amount of compression to reduce fatigue caused by road vibrations and cut a streamlined, aerodynamic profile as you ride. Nalini pays special attention to the fit of these shorts, ensuring an efficient, comfy ride in the seated, pedaling position.

The Ride Lady Shorts are fashioned from Hot Moa Light compression material for a tight, anatomic fit. Nalini chose this particular fabric for its low weight, extreme breathability, and compressive qualities, the latter of which reduce fatigue by holding the muscles in place to protect from the road’s relentless vibration and provide support when you ask your muscles to push harder mile after mile. For added durability, the crotch panel is an anti-abrasion material to reduce wear from saddle friction.

These shorts are form-fitting and were designed with the moving body in mind. To this end, the panels have been cut to follow the anatomy of the body while in the cycling position. All of the seams have been flatlock stitched to minimize chafing, and the 4.5cm silicone leg grippers keep the leg bands in place without the irritation or pinching of thin elastic.

The Ride Lady Shorts feature Nalini’s women-specific Race Lady chamois to keep you riding in comfort hour after hour. The insert's strategically placed gel inserts relieve pressure and eliminate numbness while a landscape of high-density foam provides support for your sit bones and cushioning for your soft tissue. It's finished with an antimicrobial and moisture-wicking microfiber face to keep you cool, dry, and irritation-free.

comfortable and great fit.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

They fit true to size. I ordered the large and it was too big. Medium fits perfect. I really like the high waist on these shorts. The chamois is comfortable and the seams are flat- no chafing. The inseam seems a bit longer than other shorts, but I do have short legs. However, after one season the waistband began to fall apart. I'd still buy another pair though as I love how they fit.
