With the women's Neo Power Motion 5.5 Shorts, compression is the key word! Compression favors blood circulation in the muscles; on longer rides this boosts performance and increases resistance to fatigue by up to 10 to 20%. A snug yet comfortable fit around the legs is achieved with Power + Lycra fiber, and helps prevent muscle vibration (a significant source of fatigue and soreness). In addition, a women-specific Powerband at the cuff reduces lower leg pressure and provides support without restricting circulation. The women's Motion Airgel chamois completes these shorts designed for optimal comfort and efficiency on long rides. The Neo Power Motion 5.5 is the newest addition to the Neo Power Motion line - it's shorter than the others so you can show a little leg!
