Troy Lee Designs Ace Short Fall 2013
Built for performance and designed with the grittiest XC riders in mind and with an abundance of technical components to help keep you cool as you blaze to the top. Whether you're into long ride or short recreational biking, the Ace shorts are designed to work as hard as you do.
I have tried a bunch of baggy shorts, and so far these are the best. Even the liner is great, normally I just toss the liner that comes with baggy shorts aside and use a set of Pearl Izumi. Stretch fabric is great with no binding or limiting of motion, and the pockets are either pockets or vents as you see fit. Speaking of fit, a 34 is more like a 33. I wear a 33 in most pants and these fit nice and snug. I have crash tested these shorts several times now, and they have held up great. I bought a second set in gray I liked them so much. Great for epic trail rides in heat. I wear a heavier set of shorts for DH, but everything else are these.
