Scott have come up with a pair of rugged downhill shorts with a removable liner and lightweight, Flexible leg protection attached by velcro.
Devoid of fussy detail, with just two zipped leg pockets and the much-loved waist gripper, these shorts feel like they aren't there when you're riding, and with the in/out pads, they work just as well for trail riding as they do for fun downhill sessions.
We hate the liner, though (which isn't nearly as highly specced), and it
says much for the riding comfort of the outer that, despite that, these are still hot-favourite shorts. If you like to combine your downhill with some serious cross-country and have a strict budget, these are the shorts for you.
