Chantelle Matthews, Head Designer at Polaris, created the Vela range featuring these women's Race cycling shorts to suit all female riders, whether you're a leisurely weekend cyclist or a racer.


The Vela Race Short is designed by a team chock full of women, meaning the cut hugs and skims in all the right places, creating a stunning feminine fit that makes these exceptionally flattering.


The Vela Race Short has function too. The fast wicking, lightweight and breathable fabric works hard to keep you cool as you turn the pedals. The high performance Polaris Doctor Pad is a gel injection pad featuring robust shock absorption, making it recommended for rides up to 6 hours.


Whether you go for the full matching capsule Polaris Vela kit or mix these shorts with existing gear in your wardrobe, the sharp, flattering graphics with accents of colour offer a sporty, versatile look you should be proud to wear out on your bike.


  • Womens specific performance cycle shorts

  • Lightweight and breathable to aid coolness & dryness

  • Top of the range Polaris Doctor Pad, featuring gel injection, 3 layer structure, High Density Cutting Technology® - creating an open cell construction allowing for extra breathability
