While some bike clothing companies require you to pick form or function, the designers at Wild Rye are opposed to making you compromise, and it's clear the first time you get your hands on the Kaweah Short. These breathable shorts are built from polyester, and designed to wick away the sweat, while moving with you on the bike. They feature just enough elastane to give you some gentle stretch, making sure your shorts don't hold you up when it's time to get over the back wheel on a steep and wild descent. And they don't stop there â€” wildflower-inspired and mountain-town Milky Way Constellation prints liven up your kit with a refreshing hit of style that stands out against other shorts, while performing hard on the trail. The shorts are finished off with all the bells and whistles that you appreciate on the trail, like deep pockets to keep your gadgets safe, a gusseted crotch for a boost in mobility, UPF protection from harsh rays, and finally, the ever-welcome DWR coating that sheds showers and mud when you're caught in a downpour at the top of a ridgeline.
