The Endura Burner Short is the go to model for the aggressive rider. Built for the kind of guy who takes every turn on the edge of the tires, would rather plow full throttle head on into an ugly rock garden rather than take the smooth well packed line around, the rider who dangles on the fine line between perfection and disaster . This is why the Burner short is overbuilt to handle being occasionally tossed to dirt and gravel, and emerge unscathed and ready for the next challenge. However, unlike other free ride oriented shorts simply built for protection, the well placed fabric combinations, extra ventilation and high quality chamois/liner of the Burner will ensure comfort for long stretches in the saddle. After all, the best way to experience breathtaking descents is after muscling the small ring to the top.
The outside has both tough, Teflon HT-treated, Cordura nylon for most of the shell and tough stretch panels both in the crotch and on the sides both legs. Two zip pockets are placed in front, which are directly above netting panels built into the legs for great ventilation. There's a third zip pocket welded to the left rear. Across the back is a heavy spandex yoke with the Endura logo embossed on it. The waist is two inches tall and has webbed belt sections on each side to customize the fit. There's a zip fly with a Velcro patch functioning where a button or snap might go. The Velcro grips better and won't stick you in a crash.
The interior of the short features what Endura calls a mesh drop-liner. In other words, the liner is permanently affixed to the short. But it is a lightweight, stretch mesh that is cut like cycling shorts, complete with silicone gel grippers at the bottom. The one difference in the liner is that the seams are on the outside. Inside the liner is a 400-series Endura stretch chamois.
The Endura Burner Short is Black, with a Black liner. There are reflective patches in the front and grey Endura logos. A Medium short has a 12-inch inseam. Small through XXL sizes.
