One Industries Intel Men's Shorts $149.95
Ease the pain.
With the enormous amount of hammering that you put your body through during a day of riding lifts, it's nice that at least part of you can be comfortable. One Indsutries designed the Intel shorts to take some of the agony out of a solid day of gravity-assisted dirt-pounding. When you get home you'll still be completely wasted physically, but at least it won't hurt to sit down.
The One Industries Intel Shorts have a long, 13.5 inch inseam to fit nicely over your knee pads. Nobody will mistake you for a roadie when you're wearing the Intel. Four-way stretch ripstop polyester makes up the bulk of the body. This durable fabric won't bind while you ride and breathes well to keep you dry and comfortable. The rest of the Intel's shell is made up of mesh panels that promote airflow through the shorts to cool you off and remove water vapor.
The included chamois pulls moisture away from your skin to prevent chafing and irritation and to allow your body to regulate its temperature naturally. The chamois also provides padding to make long hours of singletrack feel less like you just lost a butt-kicking contest. Unlike many riding shorts, the Intel's chamois liner is removable. This has several benefits. One is that you can adjust the fit and look that you want because the shorts and chamois are separate. You can also wear the shorts without the chamois liner as just casual shorts, or the chamois with another pair of shorts if your Intels are dirty.
The Intel shorts have couple of other nice little touches that set it apart from a lot of other shorts. A handy included sunglass wipe can transform the world from a blurry mess to crystal clear without scratching your glasses. The compact pockets reduce bulk and irritation, and the handy media port helps you manage your headphone cord. If the fit isn't exactly spot-on-perfect from the store, the dual waist adjusters allow you to fine-tune the fit without having to wear a bulky belt.
The One Industries Intel Shorts come in even sizes from 28 to 38 and is available in Noise Orange, Noise White, and Noise Black.

What community has to say
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have been using these shorts since the end of May and have to say that they are awesome! The material is light enough for a long ride, but heavy enough that I feel comfortable riding lifts all day in them and be confident about durability. The velcro tabs to adjust the waist do need some work, but I talked to our rep and they are getting fixed for next model year, but don't let that deter you.
Priced too high

The outer shorts are decent but the liners are pretty cheap for $150. Outter shorts are baggy and long. There is no mesh liner on the outer shorts and the material seems a bit whimpy for Dh shorts. The front pockets are almost useless, they are very shallow and oddly placed in the front of the short.
