Hypnotic are a small US firm loved by hardworking bike couriers and these soft 3/4 length shorts are very popular.
The soft fabric looks a lot like those indestructible trousers your gran wears and now we know why... It shrugs off showers and wind nicely to keep your knees warm, but still doesn't overheat when you're pedalling hard to the Post Office to get your pension.
The material stays comfy when wet too, which is lucky because it doesn't dry quickly. The slight stretch gives the shorts a super comfy forget-they're-on fit and we're amazed by how far you can ride on the fleece pad without getting sore.
The US cottage industry creation means they're expensive, but they're our favourite strides to pull on in the morning whether we're riding or not.
