POC Flow shorts - in brief review£79.99

Plain looks, strong performance

BikeRadar score3.5/5

There’s an appealing simplicity to POC's Flow shorts, which have a reassuringly solid and protective feel that’s all about the high quality of the fabric.

The shell has a rugged feel, with just a tad of stretch for comfort and movement, while the seat and back of the legs are made from a tough woven nylon. Even after plenty of wear, our pair looks as good as new.

The relatively hard-feeling fabric doesn’t compromise the comfort of these shorts because the inside is lined with a soft sweat-wicking mesh.

One thing we love about them is the way the section that goes over the knee is smooth-lined for unhindered movement over pads. It’s details like this that elevate kit from the ordinary and make a plain-looking pair of shorts anything but mundane.
