Kona Clump rider Dave Watson is the main man behind the fantastic Sombrio clothing – arguably the finest looking riding kit around at the moment. Dave makes sure the clothing is made in Vancouver so it’s exactly the quality he’s happy with.
The Badass shorts have an ‘Urban Freeride’ design, which means casual looks but super cool features. Made from 500 denier Cordura, the shorts are tough enough to ward off a few slams and there’s a camo mesh liner to wick away sweat and keep you comfortable (and it’s a sign of the high quality).
The waistband is lined with Coolmax fabric – again showing the attention to detail – and there are four zipped pockets, one on the bum, two at the sides and a smaller pocket lower down on the right leg. All the pockets are deep, they sit well on the leg even when full, they have high quality lining and there are reversed zips to keep the elements out.
There are also some really nice finishing touches – embossed leather tabs, wide belt loops, a secret stash pocket and tidy metal rivets.
As you might have guessed, the fit is great – baggy and long. Perfect on or off the bike.
