Finding the perfect pair of bike shorts is not an easy undertaking. They have to be long enough to cover your butt cheeks, high-waisted enough to avoid any annoying roll-down action, and fully camel-toe proof. Thankfully, Sweaty Betty has introduced a pair that checks all those boxes and then some.

The brand's Power Shorts ($68)—aka the above-the-knee version of their cult-and-celeb-fave Power Leggings—will carry you comfortably through every activity in your life, from lounging around the house to doing a headstand to pounding the pavement on a five-mile run. The Power Shorts fabric, which is made from a combination of polyamide and elastane, makes them stand out from other bike shorts on the market, because the shorts are supportive, sweat-wicking, and stretchy, and they don't leave you with any, um, moistness in your crotch. Fans of the shorts love them because the material is thick enough to offer an itty-bitty bum lift while also staving off wedgies in the front and back. They're also ultra-high waisted and have an adjustable drawstring to keep them firmly planted exactly where you want them on your body. Plus, they've got two pockets (one on the side and a zippered one on the back) so you can stash your phone and other essentials any time you leave the house.

The Power Short comes in classic black and raspberry pink, plus a subtle cheetah print and an eye-catching red retro pattern. Depending on what length you like, you can also choose between six-inch and nine-inch inseam options, and sizes that range from XXS to XXL. Truly, there's an option here for everyone. Shop the shorts below, and get ready to say hello to your new summer uniform... without ever having to worry about camel toes.
