Planning an epic day in the dirt? Then the Drift short may be just what you are looking for. These Drift Shorts feature a fully perforated Cordura, designed to keep you cool whilst still being durable. Consider these Drift Shorts as your 'go to' short for all-mountain riding.
These shorts are very durable and comfortable even on long rides. The zip pockets are great for keeping a phone or wallet safe. The nice thing about the material is that it won't stick to the seat like some other types of shorts would. Only reason I'm not giving these 5 stars is because of the velcro waist adjustment tabs. I really wish it wasn't velcro. Parts of it stick to my jersey and makes it annyoing. Other than that, it's a great deal.
I just received a pair of these things the other day, and W-O-W! The pics make 'em kinda look like they're thin and mesh-like. Lemme tell you they're about as thick as true DOWNHILL shorts, albeit they DO have a kinda mesh outer that allows more air to circulate. They're on the heavy side just like DH shorts, and they'll definitely protect you from road rash, just like DH's as well. The fit(me) true to size, and while I'll have to wait 'til it gets uber hot around here to decide how well they work(keep you cooler) in HOT weather, they're comfortable, secure, and work well up into the 80s(which we're experiencing now)
