Oakley set their own style rules and these shorts come straight from the techno ghetto and on to the trails.
Big rubberised logos and a 3D neoprene back panel with a metal icon logo give classic Oakley pimp appeal. The over-knee cut sits well, the double-layer crotch reduces saddle wear and chafing, and Scurved stretch mesh vents run up the front of both legs.
Surprisingly, we never got the very baggy cut hooked up on saddles or quick releases either. The typically Oakley price is premium, but the unlined design means the shorts are wearable anywhere. Cargo fans should note that multi-pocketed, padded-liner MTB 2.6 shorts are also available for the lower price of £59.99.
