These are the shorts that weekend thrashers have been looking for

BikeRadar score4/5

The shorts that weekend thrashers have been looking for. Despite being fairly tough, these shorts aren't heavy or hot to wear, and they're great for all but the longest cross-country trawls. You'll be thankful you're wearing them when you have a high-speed 'sit down' too.

The length of the shorts is perfect with them sitting just below the knee if you're on the tall side but they might be a bit on the long side if you're a short ass. The cut is on the bigger side, which keeps them free feeling too, and the lining keeps them cool, even in hot weather. There are also straps to secure a short liner sewn into the waist lining.

Twin velcro straps adjust the waist and a velcro fly with poppers finishes the job. Just below the small of the back is a decent sized vent panel, there's one on the front of the thighs too.

There are two deep hand pockets, although the velcro used to close it catches on the lining. But the huge pockets on the thighs are ace, and their weighted flap closure works well.

Their simple, subtle looks mean they will win many fans. Colours available are black and the grey shown here.
