The best of both worlds - a new take on Lungo.
For all-day or just a quick spin, the Lungo Short combines a technical double-faced medium compression fabric with paneling that supports a wide range of cyclists and body types.
The Icon fabric is the star of the new Lungo Short. Allowing for all-day use without losing its compression over the length of your ride, this double-faced technical microfiber fabric uses a large square knit with a super soft interior that excels the movement of moisture for a fast drying short while promoting micro massaging effects to keep your legs fresh for those long rides.
Shorter Inseam - The regular length Lungo short inseam of 9.5 inches* (24 cm) decreases by 5cm or about 2 inches to create a shorter inseam version of 7.5 inches or 19 cm. This length is perfect for cyclists who want to work on their tan lines or for those who find the regular inseam length just a little too long. *Inseam length for size Small.

From the previous generation Lungo, which excelled on long, all-day rides, supporting a wide variety of body types with its material and paneling, the new Lungo does all this and more.
Icon Fabric - The outside of the Lungo short’s main material is a similar feel and look to a traditional Lycra short but the inside uses a microfiber-polyester with a large square knit and almost fleece-like finish for a very soft feel against the skin. Don't be fooled by the fleece-like description though, this is a summer short but this fabric is soft. The technical two-faced Icon fabric aids in compression and provides a micro-massaging effect as well as increased breathability, drying faster on hot rides. The material also does not loosen up with time or excessive heat for an all-day style medium compression.
The turned over hem on the end of the leg panels offers a "leg band free" design. The high waist offers comfort and helps to accommodate a wide variety of body types.
The new waistband is a doubled lycra construction and thermo welded to increase strength and prevent rolling while in the riding position. Added adhesive, non-silicone treatment at the back also aids in keeping the short in place.
The same textured fabric from the seat panel of our FR-C Pro bibs is also used here which is anti-abrasion, increases durability, and keeps you in place on a variety of seat surfaces.
Care: Machine wash at 40°C or less on reduced cycle / Do not bleach / Hang or lay flat to dry
