Strengths:    Very durable material overall. Nice panel design.

Weaknesses:    Small minimal pocket. Very poor ratchet design on the closure. Hot.

Bottom Line:   
Looks are just ok on this short. A little big in the hip area. I bought a large, but it is a very large, large. The pocket material has ripped on the inside. The Rockgardn logo looks cool down the legs, but a little weird on the arse. Tough short for $39US, though. Wish for more pockets.

Strengths:    Lightweight, super durable, look really good, very comfortable, pocket comes in handy.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
These are by far the most comfortable and toughest bike shorts I've ever worn. I recommend the CYA padded shorts to go underneath if you need the protection. Rockgardn kicks ass!

Strengths:    Good fit, tough fabric, well vented, not to hot...

Weaknesses:    The waist buckle is black the only color????

Bottom Line:   
I wore these shorts for the season, they fit me good and were cool and comfy, saved my ass skin on the crashes, well worth the bux, looks like they are good for a few more seasons.

Snow Summit Singletrack XC Loop?

It's been well over a decade since I've ridden Summit. Wondering how much things have changed and if there's good new stuff outside the park I should incorporate into a loop. I recall 1E01 being really fun, and town trail being a decent way to start/link up to it (with some fireroad connecting?). Ma ... Read More »

Summit County Labor Day weekend riding

Had a pretty soggy first week here in Frisco/Breck, but managed to tag a few classic high-ish spots including Searle, Georgia, West Ridge... Looks like a dry-ish long weekend ahead so we've decided to stick around and try to reach a few even higher spots nearby... Thinking of a nice little B ... Read More »
