Sombrio’s freeride heritage makes all their shorts as good-looking off the bike as they are on it, and even though these are designed for cross-country, style-wise they still match up.
We like the magnet closures on the pockets – they deliver a painless and secure closure – and the mesh venting across the back to keep you cool is a great detail that really works.
The leg cut is good with room for movement without being overly baggy, and the touch of stretch in the fabric provides extra comfort that makes these good to go, all day.
The fabric is a touch noisy, but that’s a personal thing and it probably won’t bother most people. Sold without a liner to go over your own choice of padding.
