Girls this season’s wears will take you from the saddle to beyond, into a roving mash up of distant cultures and lost chronicles. Cueca inspired designs, musical influences from past and present and a meltdown of sepia tones and folky vectors that tell a story of sweet dreams to come true. High performance riding gear for girls; this has been our commitment for over a decade when we developed the industry’s first ever woman’s specific FRD short. The GIRLS Collection is our best yet, designed for girls who ride bikes, period.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Else Good but could still be better.
These are the best all round comfortable shorts I've found and use them for all kinds of riding; most recently for a weekend of gravity enduro (with knicks). Also work well without knicks.
The size chart seems accurate. The length is a little short for me (182cm tall) but I suspect they're just right for most women. The fit is a little odd - slightly puckered around the crotch. The pockets are a good size and don't bang on the legs too much.
The fabric is just right for pedalling or downhill and slides nicely on the seat without being slippery. It is very strong with just the right amount of stretch. Unfortunately the black mesh lining has shed / shredded (?) a little and leaves little black fuzzy balls stuck to the legs.
Just a warning: the pink transfer came off onto some of my other washing when wet so wash with the darks!
