When it comes to women's high-performance mountain shorts, the look and fit can often come across as too burly. A common industry practice known as "shrink it and pink it," that waves a lazy design wand on men's styles and turns them into women's, might've had something to do with that. Our Emma Trail Shorts, however, were designed, tested, and approved by a team of discerning female riders who demand superior fit, performance, and comfort. Our goal was to create a clean and simple pair of shorts that were super light, breathable, and technical, but durable enough for aggressive trail riding. That's why the construction uses our new lightweight VaporRize four-way stretch woven fabric that moves and flexes with you at every berm and drop. The shorts also include two zippered pockets that provide a convenient storage solution for transporting your trail essentials, plus inside waist adjustment tabs that keep the outside waistband clean and non-obtrusive to packs or jersey fabric that can catch on exposed Velcro. You'll also find strategically placed laser perforations that allow for cool airflow and lightweight bonded plastic snaps that work in conjunction with a mesh gusseted fly to keep them comfortable while riding in and out of the saddle.
