Wet weather gear designed to make the most of tough conditions.
Make any wet day a great day to ride with this inclement weather Summit WxB Shell Short, engineered for performance as much as protection. Bonded and taped seams hold the highly breathable ELITE WxB waterproof fabric together to keep you dry throughout your entire ride. Constructed with a lighter weight 2.5-layer fabric on the front and main body of the short for exceptional breathability, and 3-layer WxB fabric for increased durability where the short meets the saddle. The elastic free waistband adds comfort, and security, for a reliable fit that is easily customized on the fly with external hook and loop adjusters. New Trail Access side pockets are angled backwards, instead of down the front of the thigh, to shift contents comfortably out of the way while pedaling and allow easy accessibility while in the saddle. A longer inseam paired with scalloped leg openings maximizes front protection, while minimizing calf contact during pedaling, and easily integrates with pads. Wear over your favorite Liner short.
Main Body: 93% nylon, 7% elastane; Made in Vietnam
Reflectivity: Low-light visibility
USE SIMPLE DETERGENTS WITH NO ADDITIVES Never use detergents with fabric softeners, perfumes or any additive type product. The general rule of thumb is the simpler the better. Many detergents with additives leave "surfactants" behind on a fabric's fibers that inhibit the technical performance. Typically the best detergents to use will have "Clear" or "Free" in their names. Don't pour the detergent directly onto the clothing, put it in the washer first, when you start the water. If something is not functionally working, but is not dirty, try rinsing it twice in warm to hot water. This will help get rid of the harmful surfactants. READ THE CONTENT CARE LABEL: On the inside of your garment, or on the hangcard, there are instructions for the care of that individual piece. On garments this will be on a side seam or back seam label. Follow those directions. On finer fabrics, use a "Gentle" cycle. Close all zippers, attach "hook and loop" closures on gloves YOU CAN USE THE DRYER, CAREFULLY: If you use a dryer be sure to use a lower / warm heat setting (Do NOT use a commercial dryer or a "Hot" setting). This will often restore the fabric and help the water and wind repellent qualities. If in doubt, hang the clothing to dry.
