It's here and it's ready to get to work. Meet the new Basic Cycling Short. Put a new spin on your daily ride with these shorts that were engineered to conquer any climb and designed to help you beat your best.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Kyle Axman is a Rhone Outlier currently training for an Ironman 70.3. He took these shorts for an indoor spin and here is what he had to say:
"Just finished riding 20 miles on the Peloton in Rhone’s new cycling short and I have nothing bad to say. I am a triathlete currently training for Ironman 70.3 and I ride about 4x/week. When the weather is nice, I put in a ton of mileage outdoors. But, as a fitness professional with a background as a Flywheel Indoor Cycling instructor for 3 years, I do thoroughly enjoy riding bikes in place.
I’ve tried cycling shorts by over 10 different brands each with varying lengths, padding, compression, etc and the Rhone short is far superior. You often get cycling shorts with too much padding that becomes baggy, uncomfortable, and chafe-causing. This is often due to the thickness of the pad as well as the compression level of the surrounding area. I also use a short with less padding on the Peloton since the seat is soft and a short with more substantial padding on my road bike since it's hard. Rhone’s short sits perfectly in the middle, allowing me to use them both indoors and outdoors. I can happily say that the Rhone cycling shorts are my new go-to training and racing short with a cooling, anti-chafing, moisture-wicking, quick-drying and comfortable fit."
