The Capo Riga Donna short is a simply designed, basic black short. But don't let that fool you. It's sewn with compressive fabric around a top-tier chamois to provide support no matter how far you may ride.
While many shorts in the same price range are sewn from lightweight Lycra, Capo used panels of Power Lycra. This material features compressive-like qualities, due to a higher grams-per-square-meter weight than most Lycra fabrics. It wraps and supports your muscles and shields them from the vibration caused by riding rough roads. If you've ever been stuck on a rough path in less-than-compressive shorts, you've felt that annoying deep muscle itch that is indicative of muscle oscillation. Reducing this oscillation helps to minimize early-onset fatigue.
You won't ride very long without proper chamois support. To this end, Capo used its Endurance 3D Donna insert in the shorts. This chamois uses a high-density open-cell foam that has been bonded to an microfiber layer. Within this layer, antimicrobial threads have been woven to aid in moisture evaporation. It features 6mm and 8mm-thick pads placed in optimal positions to support your sit bones while cushioning soft tissue areas.
