The Tellus collection is designed to excel in all your warm weather, off-road pursuits where lightweight comfort and breathability, coupled with individual style, are paramount. We didn’t want to bog the Tellus collection down with excessive bells and whistles. Instead, we chose to focus on creating an off-road kit that disappears on your body.
FIT & DESIGN
The trim fit of the Tellus Shorts offers a nice, casual appearance when off the bike, but the design also ensures you won't be burdened with baggy, flapping fabric when charging hard on gravel or singletrack. The waistband has been constructed with a large elastic 'belt,' which utilizes hook and webbing so you can tighten to a perfect fit. A single button and zip-fly allow for quick and easy on/off. Two backwards facing zip pockets are perfect for keys, cards, tools or other items you want to keep secure. When not in use for storage, these mesh-backed pockets can be zipped open to serve as scoops, further promoting air flow and cooling. The back of the short features two external, mesh dump-pockets that are ideal for holding your ride snacks or trash in case you want to leave the hip-bag or pack at home.
"The Pactimo Tellus stands out from the rest with a radically different fit and styling… but the ultralight weight makes me want to shed the hydration pack and pedal miles and miles in this short with just a couple of bottles on the frame. I think this will be the perfect short for some big gravel biking adventures."
FABRICS & CONSTRUCTION
We've used a lightweight, ripstop fabric in the Tellus, made from 37.5 Polyester yarns and Spandex, so you have incredible 4-way stretch in a short that will seem to disappear during your ride. But, what sets these shorts apart from others on the market is the use of woven Cocona particles from 37.5® Technology. Those amazing, little particles attract humidity and use your body heat to rapidly transfer perspiration from the interior to the exterior of the garment. This rapid transfer of moisture ensures a regulated body temperature and can increase athletic performance by as much as a 25% (results based on an independent University of Colorado study). This means you can ride longer and harder while staying cooler. Learn more at www.thirtysevenfive.com.
