I'm a mountain biker. If you are looking for durable, great at wicking, light biking shorts. These are the ones! They are great from cross country to free riding. A nice loose fit so fitting knee guards isn't an issue. Cargo pockets for cash, an i.d., or a gel. An mp3 pocket with a stitched hole for the head phone cord. Velcro belt to adjust comfort at the waist. Some time i wear them just to lounge around the house or to go out. These shorts are the tits! Hands down.
