What length stem comes on the XL?
Just ordered a second pair. Tight fit, great details and they aren't too hot. Color is more of a dark navy blue. Also - these are definitely not in any way Women's sized. So order up while the price is good, gentlemen!
This seems like a thicker grip - does anyone know the average diameter of this grip?
I never notice these shorts while I am riding. The are light, and therefore excellent in the summer, they fit me well (wearing a size large with 33/34 waist) and they have just the right amount of styling to make other people think I know what I'm doing out on the trail. I use the pockets but for lighter weight items. I've also found these to be acceptably durable.
I use a now extinct Swobo liner underneath. These shorts also fit POC's VPD hip shorts underneath them. No experience with kneepads, though.
All in all a solid short.
I've worn POC's trail tee on every MTB ride in the past year and I can recommend it without hesitation. At 6 foot 5 I have a hard time finding cycling jerseys that fit me well. I wear baggy shorts as most of us do and wanted a looser fitting top to compliment the look. As I ride with a backpack on most rides, I do not need pockets on my jerseys.
The fit of the Trail T is exceptional, which is partially due to the elasticity of the fabric. On hot muggy VT days the shirt kept me surprisingly cool but I would imagine there are lighter jerseys out there that will do a better job of wicking sweat. With that said it dries quickly and stays odor free longer than other, more technical-looking jerseys I have had in the past.
You can't go wrong with the colors either. The blue is phenomenally vivid in real life and I'll probably purchase the orange at some point. Otherwise it's all black all the time for me. Pics forthcoming.
Does this jersey offer UPF protection? It's mentioned in the details for the Notch Graphic L/S jersey but unsure about this one. I also wonder which one is lighter?
