The guide to Summer shorts

Edited by De Marchi

At De Marchi we create apparel based on real use cases, not just for positioning and price points. This is why when it comes to Summer shorts, as long as with all our other products, you don’t find two garments that serve the same purpose. Find the short that suites your riding style in our curated assortment of Summer essential cycling shorts:


Classico Short

Dependable all-round road short made with recycled materials and featuring classic styling, slightly longer legs, flat-locked seams for less friction and a supremely comfortable chamois technology. A lightweight and stretch white mesh back panel allow for temperature control and won’t see through your jersey while custom designed silicone leg elastics provide grip without constriction. Available in women’s specific design.


Fuoristrada Short

The definitive short for off-road riding, Fuoristrada is built around a chamois specifically designed for gravel and bumps thanks to strategically placed gel cushioning elements that provide relief to the ischial bones. Two ample side pockets and a cellphone pocket in the back provide ample storage capacity while a special quick-drying fabric allows for all-day comfort.

Available in women’s specific design.


Leggero Short

Designed for hot weather, the Leggero is the perfect Summer short thanks to lightweight Lycra fabric and redesigned leg grippers for improved comfort. A lighter, anatomical chamois provide incredible support thanks to super high-density cushioning foams that are perforated t promote ventilation with less weight. The back is obtained from an incredibly thin mesh for temperature control. Perfect both on & off road.


Superleggero Short

Built around PowerSilk™, a progressive material born from the synthesis of old and new which remove the concepts of weight and limitation, Superleggero is designed to perform in hot and humid environments. Woven fabric means same compression with half weight and allows for a wrinkle-free short. Silk provide less water retention and provide a fuller drape. The astonish Elastic Interface HCS chamois system adopts hybrid elastomeric cushioning cells which provide the feeling of being suspended in air. A radical leg design eliminates the need for gripper elastic by adopting a special self-gripping fabric that is laser cut, therefore providing a seam-free edging for unrestricted comfort. Road specific.
