The Wildcard is a three-season short made from water-resistant material that’s good both on and off the bike.
It’s cut on the generous side, so for high performance riding you’d fare better with something like the Pinner or Rev, but the Wildcard is great to wear all day, in preparation for hitting the trails after work!
With belt loops and front and rear pockets, the Wildcard can be loaded up with phones,wallets and so on, and has two large zippered vents on the inside of the legs and a seam free-crotch for comfy pedalling.
Although the material is waterproof, the seams are not sealed, but they keep the worst off. The cut is different from previous models – we had to go a size up, which makes them a little on the baggy side for serious riding, so check the fit before you buy.
