Fit Guide

Our shorts are lined with a breathable, lightweight mesh that wicks moisture away from the body. We use an Elastic Interface® chamois and stitch it to the liner to keep unsightly stitch lines off your bum for a super flattering fit! Our model is wearing her shorts inside out to give you a glimpse of our unique construction technology. 

fit comparison

At  samsara௦ cycle, our bottoms are offered in 4 different lengths. We are determined to provide women with choices geared towards their personal preferences and self-expression. Each of us is unique! The 9” performance short reflects a more traditional cycling short length and features an 1.5” grip tape.  Our 7” short is an ideal length for ladies comfortable sporting a bit more leg, so to say and has a 2.5” grip tape for a super flattering fit.  Our 5.5” short is our original performance short. 

All of our shorts are a mid-rise fit, with the smooth,  wide waistband sitting right below your waistline. Our new ⅞ freedom tights (coming soon!) feature a higher rise. 

Our performance  jerseys are a race fit, tight to body and slightly lower at the back, perfect for when you’re in the saddle. If you prefer a looser fit we recommend you choose the next size up.

Have a measuring tape handy? If not, no worries! Grab some string and a ruler. Wrap the measuring tape (or string) around each part of your body as indicated below.
