Product Description

Once you drop in, you'll wish that you had been built as tough as your DAKINE Descent Shorts. Super-tough double-stitching and a gusseted crotch ensure that your Descent shorts will still be in one piece once you get back to the bottom of the lift. A ratcheting waist adjustment lets you dial the fit perfectly and securely, and a molded EVA back panel adds protection when the going gets rough.Gusseted crotch panel adds durabilityZippered side pockets carry your stuff securelyRatcheting waist adjustment for secure fitMolded EVA lumbar panel for added protection16 inch inseam for a stylish fit that gets over your knee padsRib-knit back stretch panel

Strengths:    Fit, long inseam. Great pocket placement.

Weaknesses:    Horribly constructed. I've tried two pairs of these shorts and both pairs failed after less than 3 rides.

Bottom Line:   
My first pair of descent shorts had the two rivets that hold the adjustment buckle on fall off. It's really no fun when in the middle of your ride the shorts will no longer stay up. This happened on the third ride.
My second pair of shorts had a tear develop in the crotch area on just my right side after the second ride.
The first pair was warrantied, but with the second pair I was told it was normal wear and tear and so sorry, but nothing they could do. So much for a lifetime warranty for defects.

You are much better off spending your money on something half the price or spending the same amount on something like an endura, sombrio, race face short.

Eat sh*t dakine.

~5,000' descent Cloudcroft to Alamogordo

First time on it but it is awesome. Well, besides some JA's building tiny switchbacks with rocks on parts of it. Very quick edit I did, enjoy: Read More »

It gets a lot louder and it is almost like a spring noise. My friend recently got a new bike also and had the same fork. His does no ... Read More »

Or Miwok-Bobcat-Marincello-TVR They both seem pretty tame. But I've got a choice, so which is a mellower trail to descen ... Read More »
