If you're a cyclist that demands the best technology at the best price, then look no further than the Performance Women's 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. The six-panel construction with abrasion-resistant side panels ensure excellent pedaling ergonomics as well as maintaining a streamlined fit.

Coldblack technology reduces skin temperature under direct sunlight for the ultimate in cooling comfort on hot days and the 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 Women's 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 Women's Ultra Shorts (Black/Charcoal) (M)
This is the 3rd pair of Ultra bike shorts within a year. They fit great and provide comfort on lengthy rides. Slowly replacing the set of Ultra bike shorts that were purchased 8 yrs ago. They do hold up for quite a few years. I do recommend these short highly. Sadly, a bike crash last summer ruined a newly purchased pair.

Last year there were more color accent options so I think there may be supply issues.

Nice looking short with a thick, quality chamois. They fit according to the size chart. Leg openings are not tight- very nice.

So love these shorts! And I am glad to have found them still a consistent product 3 years later. I love the wide band on the legs. Always makes my legs look great and the waist is very comfy. I usually choose them over bibs for comfort. And the chamios is good for medium and long distance riding.

Glad that Performance is carrying these shorts again. The chamois isn't quite as comfortable as the old style, but they are still better than many of the more expensive brands out there so I'm a fan.

Performance Women's Ultra Shorts (Black/Charcoal) (M)
I sent in a review that I was unhappy with the sizing of the Ultra shorts recently purchased. I requested an exchange and returned the ones that may have been sized wrong. The company refunded the purchase rather than send new shorts. I have contacted customer service and they worked out my concern very promptly. In the process of our communications they discovered some manufacturing issues they will address. I received the correct sized shorts and am totally satisfied with their customer service.

I must apologize for my previous review, done in haste prior to contacting the customer service dept. I was totally wrong by doing that and should have contacted them first. Lesson learned.

Thank you Performance Customer Service for addressing my concerns,

Performance Women's Ultra Shorts (Black/Charcoal) (S)
I've purchased these shorts from Performance for as long as they have stocked them. They're excellent for long-distance riding and they don't wear out as fast as other brands. However, this particular pair of shorts must be defective because after wearing them for only 5 times, they have started to lose the elasticity around the leg and the bottom band is loose. My other Ultra Shorts have not done this until they have many, many miles on them. So, I must have received a defective pair of shorts this time.

Performance Women's Ultra Shorts (Black/Charcoal) (M)
Great shorts and great service. I ordered late Friday evening and received them today, Monday. I took them for a short 10 mile ride and they were supportive and comfortable. The chamois is a bit thick, but so far it is not a problem. Very comfortable shorts and I wore them in 50F degree weather with leg warmers and they were perfect. I am 5'3", 135lbs. and medium fit perfectly. I am sticking with Performance shorts. Also, the tag says "Made in America" so I am ultra impressed with this quality and price point.

Performance Women's Ultra Shorts (Black/Charcoal) (2XL)
Nice fit. The bad is very thick. Almost too thick for walking around, but great for a long days ride. The side panels are a little bit more transparent than expected.

Nice shorts.
