Mavic’s HC shorts are designed for longer rides or road races. The padding is plentiful and the thickness varies to produce the most comfortable and flexible padding you could wish for, with the external elastic gripper holding the shorts in place well.
The shoulder straps are made from breathable netting and are well shaped with the addition of a pocket for an MP3 player.
Possibly the most imaginative feature is the cleverly named ‘ergo P’, a hidden zip perfectly placed to allow easy access on a pit stop.
The panels are sewn together by a combination of flat and raised seams, but what was noticeable was the short’s scratchy ‘wick matrix power’ material – it softened after a few washes, but it was still noticeable, and could spoil the feel of the short if you’re particularly sensitive.
