If you're a cyclist that demands the best technology at the best price, then look no further than the Performance Ultra Shorts. Designed in Chapel Hill, NC and made in the United States, the Ultra Shorts ensure you'll be riding at your best.

These shorts feature the new Ultra TMF Italian chamois with Skyving technology for seamless, pressure-free comfort, and its multi-density foam with Air Mesh layer provides shock absorption, breathability, and moisture-wicking. The shorts' high compression fabric has an embossed texture and uses push/pull technology to manage moisture while the six panel construction with abrasion-resistant side panels maintain a streamlined fit.

Coldblack technology reduces skin temperature under direct sunlight for the ultimate in cooling comfort on hot days and the an UPF 30+ rating means there's protection against the sun's harmful rays. Wide, sublimated leg bands are non-restrictive and the silicone interior helps to keep the shorts perfectly placed. Built with the same features found in high-end cycling shorts, the Performance Ultra Shorts give you all the benefits the pros are accustomed to.


  • Nylon/spandex fabric blend with embossed texture improves aerodynamics, manages moisture, and provides high compression at a lighter weight
  • Abrasion-resistant side panels are made with a special knit that pulls perspiration from the surface of the skin and pushes it off the face of the material
  • Ultra TMF Italian chamois is anatomically shaped for long distance comfort, features multi-density foams to absorb vibrations, utilizes seamless Skyving technology to eliminate steps between foam layers, plus has a carbon brushed anti-bacterial top sheet
  • Italian made leg opening includes a wide sublimated leg band with silicone print to prevent them from riding up the leg
  • 6-panel design with high compression reduces muscle fatigue and speeds up muscle recovery
  • UPF 30+ sun protection
  • Flatlock seams eliminate chafing
  • Reflective accents enhance visibility in low-light conditions

Performance Ultra Shorts (Black/Yellow) (M)
These are the most comfortable bike shorts. I have tried many others but none compare. I have 2 pairs and worried that I wouldn't be able to buy another pair when the Performance Bike stores near me closed. So happy to find them on the website. Hope they will offer more colors again but as long they still make them, I won't complain.

Performance Ultra Shorts (Black/Yellow) (XL)
Very comfortable and a good fit. I have a 34 waist and an XL fits good, so better size up and ignore the size chart. I used other reviews to make that decision. Only thing, I wished the pads were back a little, but itís not bad.

Performance Ultra Shorts (Black/Yellow) (M)
I have a 34" waist. I have bought size medium in other brands and they fit great. I received the size medium in this brand I put my leg in the short and got it up to my knee and I new then that it was a no go. I thought that I had ordered a child size medium by mistake. I checked the web site and no I ordered an adult men's size. So, I am going to exchange them for a XL size. I will let you know how they fit when I receive them. The size chart on the web site is way off. For this item.

Performance Ultra Shorts (Black/Yellow) (L)
my waist is 32-33 I bought the Large. The shorts are really tight anything over 33 waist you wouldn't get a Large size on. Im a very avid rider these are really nice shorts but the sizing is off.

Performance Ultra Shorts (Black/Yellow) (M)
Best shorts I have owned. Did a 69.2 mile ride last weekend (longest ride in years) and NO chafing! Fabric is comfortable and the waistband does not sag. Only downside was the price, even though it was discounted.

Performance Ultra Shorts (Black/Yellow) (L)
Some of the finest shorts I've ever worn. Worth full price for certain, and a distinct treat when they are reduced cost in my size. The optic yellow trim is fantastic, and the gripper material in the legs is second to none. One area of improvement might be the slight rolling of the waistband.

Overall: Great! *****
