Our performance cycling shorts will enable you to beautifully express your style with a best-in-class technical performance that will keep you focused on your adventure!

The 11mm thick chamois will keep you comfortable for several hours of riding. It’s scientifically designed for women with a patented bacteriostatic fabric that inhibits bacteria growth while maintaining your skin's natural bacterial balance, preventing skin irritations and sweat rashes.

The chamois will increase your saddle stability, giving you more power while wicking away moisture and eliminating pelvic chaffing and soreness.

Get ready for compliments because our unique construction technology hides the outside chamois stitch lines for a more flattering fit, so your bum will look fantastic!

Every Samsara print is artist designed in-house exclusively for our collections. We are inspired by fashion and colour trends, natural elements, and the views on our local rides in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia. We test new prints multiple times to ensure perfect tones, scale, and feel, making every garment to love.

    My fav cycling shorts

    This is my third pair of performance shorts and I love them all - the most comfortable shorts I’ve ever had! My perfect size would be xs but with size s legs… luckily the bigger size doesn’t slip on my waist and doesn’t constrict my thighs.

    Excellent feel and fit

    These bike shorts are fantastic. They are incredibly comfortable, stylish, and the padding is great! Would love it if they came with side pockets in the thighs for cell phone.

    Like the patterned fabric

    I would like to suggest that Samsara consider making larger sizes. While I can fit in the XXL, I had to do a repair where the chamios stitches separated from the liner in a couple of places. Also the measurements listed below only go up to 33" waist and 43"hips (which I picked because it is mandatory to pick something and not because it is accurate for my shape). I have some other larger friends that I would like to recommend get some of your products but I am not comfortable doing that knowing that the largest size would not be large enough. Please consider helping larger women get active on their bikes wearing the Samsara cool styles. Also, I find the value for money is appropriate only when the products are on sale.

    I love these shorts!

    The performance zebra shorts have it all! They are comfortable and ridiculously cute. Get the matching socks to slay in the saddle!
