Product Summary

Athleta’s 7” Transcend Shorts are a great option if you are looking for a classic biker short. Made from a comfortable, sweat-wicking fabric with all-around stretch, you can wear these both in and out of the gym. Reviews applaud the buttery soft fabric that feels like a second skin.

Not only are they comfortable, but they are breathable as well, which can be unusual for tighter-fitting shorts. There is a front seam which can be uncomfortable for some individuals, so if you are prone to those issues you may want to try them on before you buy.

Featuring a hidden waistband pocket, you can bring smaller items like keys or cards if you are wearing these in your everyday life. The Transcend Shorts are available in a few colors and have a 7 inch inseam.
