Alipinestars raised the rear panel of the Stella short and includes an elastic cinch to keep the waistband fitting snug and comfortable.
|More and more brands are catering for the women's market when it comes to clothing for XC, but not as much for trail riding. Finding a pair of shorts that we like, which doesn't make us look like a potato sacks, becomes tricky. If you add comfort to the equation, it suddenly becomes problematic. Alpinestars' Stella Hyperlight shorts have quickly become a favorite for spring riding. They fit nicely and are curve friendly. They are lightweight and breathable. The length is such that, If you wear kneepads, you won't have any skin showing between the pads and shorts, so you won't look like a dork. Branding is quite subtle, so you won't feel like a moving billboard. The quality of manufacturing is high and the stitching is low-profile, and doesn't chafe. All in all, the Alpinestars Stella Hyperlight is a great pair of mid- to warm-weather trail riding shorts. Add some affordable Italian fashion to your closet. - Mary Moncorge|
