Cool shorts, won't last

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These shorts are great looking and comfortable. Unfortunately, they do not hold up to dh use, especially in key areas such as the waist adjustment straps. I tore both of mine off of the elastic band they attach to while riding, not crashing. Also, the four way fabric has hilariously awful abrasion resistance wise compared to other designated dh shorts. These are a killer pair of all-mountain or enduro baggy shorts, but really don't hold up to the abuse dh throws out. One last thing to note- I have the 2012 model and they may have beefed up current year offerings

I think it says these are all mountain shorts I believe they do a Drift, Race and SP247 for DH use that use corder style fabric which is heavier duty
