Strengths:    Very durable and comfortable. Same material as motocross gear.look very cool and move great

Weaknesses:    gets hot while riding if your not going fast and runs small on sizing.

Bottom Line:   
Great shorts for the serious downhiller. Offer great protection in crashes. I wouldn't recommend them to someone who is just going to be cruising around tho. But overall awesome shorts

Date Reviewed: September 21, 2009

Strengths:    Super duable, tough material. Zipper and tension belt work great. They look good too.

Weaknesses:    HOT. It seems like these shorts do not breathe. They have a "air intake system" on the sides of the shorts, but if you are not going at a high rate of speed all the time, there is no air getting into these shorts. Also, note that these shorts run a little small. I usually wear a size 32, but a 34 runs almost perfect in these shorts.

Bottom Line:   
Good shorts for downhilling or freeride. They dont breathe as much as I would like, but they are good shorts. Super durable and well designed.
