O'Neal A-10 Freeride shorts review
O’Neal’s A-10 shorts are a simple two pocket no-frills affair with no unnecessary pockets or detailing to ruin comfort.
Made from tough but comfy Cordura with big ribbed flexible panels at the front and lower back, they ensure great maneuverability when pedalling and the fully lined perforated liner shifts moisture and helps movement over the skin. The fit’s just right and the length just below the knee, great for pedalling and pad clearance.
A zip fly and ratchet style closure keep them up and in place, and there are belt loops as well. They’d benefit from adjustable sides but are an otherwise comfy and tough pair of shorts. The price is a fraction high, as you could get an all-singing, all-dancing pair for similar money. Don’t worry if they clash with your current kit though, they’re also available in good old black.
