The iXS Lozza BC shorts have freeriders and trail tearaways firmly in mind. The loose fit and stretch panels to the rear help create unrestricted movement.
They sit just over the knee, and knee pads fit under easily – the shorts’ lining glides over them without any problems. The fabric is breathable and the full mesh lining is soft next to the skin and offers decent moisture wicking. Two small zippered air vents give great ventilation too.
Twin Velcro waistbands adjust externally and help tailor the fit, but we would prefer them to be internal so they don’t catch on a riding pack. The cargo pockets work better off the bike too.
