Seated or standing pedaling requires comfortable XC mountain-bike specific shorts designed for greater freedom of movement and less peddling interference. These versatile, 12.5 inseam stretch woven shorts have a removable, 9.5 inseam chamois liner short for breathable support and next-to-skin comfort during long rides through the backcountry. A DWR (durable water repellent) finish sheds moisture upon contact to keep you dry during epic all-day riding sessions. The elliptical hem at the openings of the outer shorts covers the knee cap for extra protection from the sun and low branches. Mesh inner-thigh vents and mesh-lined hand pockets improve overall airflow to keep you cool. Elastic high-back waistband prevents gapping as you lean towards the handlebars.
