Helenca Traditional Shorts:
For all cyclists of the 70's and 80's this was the riding short. This fabric is not made anymore. We found some fabric and decided to make some shorts. This short will last for years and years! It wears like iron and breathes like a wool garment.
Material: Helenca is a poly/nylon which breathes nice and wicks like wool. The short has a rear pocket and an elastic drawstring and shorter legs, no grippers. The pad insert is our foam padded #1 Multi Density Pad (standard pad good for 50 miles plus rides). If you are looking for a gel pad, when ordering you can upgrade to the #2 Pad, or for the riders that like a real chamois, you can upgrade to the #6 Real Chamois (see the pull down on the ordering form). If you want to see other pads that we carry, go to the Repair Section on the opening page for more details.
- X-Small fits a 25-28 waist with a 5 1/2" inseam.
- Small fits a 29-31 waist with an 6" inseam.
- Medium fits a 32-33 waist with an 6" inseam.
- Large fits a 34-35 waist with a 6" inseam.
We have no XL. Back in the 70's the inseam was short and that is how these Helenca shorts are built.
