Crash-proof big-hitters with a nice cut, but the lack of venting lets them down
Skip to view product specifications

The Chargers are made from relatively crash-proof, heavy duty nylon with bar tack stitching on all stress-prone areas. They’re built for abuse and will shrug off more than a few scrapes.


The shape is good, with a decent length leg that will especially suit taller riders. There’s no worry of hooking your crotch on the saddle thanks to the well proportioned cut.


The inner material wicks well and there is a small zipped pocket out of harm’s way on the back. However, with no venting these can heat up quickly and the retro styling isn’t for all.
