Strengths:    very comfy, no bulk, durable, BG chamois, looks good (good length)

Weaknesses:    a little pricey

Bottom Line:   
Best shorts ever. I hate bulky shorts with too many pockets (who wants stuff banging around in their pockets while riding, that's what a Camelback is for). The flush cargo pockets are perfect for holding a folded map, or maybe a wallet/cell phone after the ride. These are light and breath well in the summer, yet are long enough to come to the knee so you don't look funny. There is no velcro adjusters, zippers or snap belts to get in the way, just the simple ties and a comfortable waistband. I like that the chamois is removable. It is also the most comfortable chamois I own (just enough padding in the right places). It stays put and doesn't get caught on my saddle. Repeated crashes have not even pulled a stitch out of place (can't say that for any other shorts I own). If they weren't so pricey I'd buy extra so I wouldn't have to wash them so often.

Submitted by Rahele a Cross Country Rider from Evergreen, CO

Date Reviewed: June 1, 2009

Strengths:    I like how durable the fabric is, the side straps to adjust the waist and the length.

Weaknesses:    The side strap fell off in the wash the third time I washed them due to poor stitching, Specialized warranted it, but I had to pay for the shipping. Chamois bunches up on one side. Not enough pockets.

Bottom Line:   
I got a great deal on the shorts ($40) but if I had paid full retail ($112ish) I would have been really disappointed in them.

They are fine for after work/short rides; but I have relegated them to the bottom of the pile for any ride over 10 miles since the chamois bunches up on one side.

Strengths:    Durable, Breathes well, Fits perfect, Looks good

Weaknesses:    Not enough pockets. One more pocket would've been appreciated.

Bottom Line:   
These shorts are the best pair of baggies I own. They're the most expensive pair of baggies I own. They are made from a light but durable material. The pull cinches in the front of the shorts work really well to give you an excellent fit. The inner liner is great, second in comfort only to Sugoi. I wish I had 5 pair of these, but they're expensive. I bought these out of necessity after arriving to a trail in another city and realizing I had left my other baggy shorts at home. It was a mistake that ended up to be a great discovery of my new favorite brand of shorts. I would suggest these to anyone that likes to ride in baggy mountain bike shorts.

My First Enduro Race

I had my first Enduro race yesterday. It was a ton of fun, and a whole lot harder than I expected. There is a big difference between riding for fun, and riding against the clock. I ended up right in the middle of my "masters" sport group. I think if I wasn't able to blow downhill with reckless ab ... Read More »

Impressions on this 2005 Specialized Enduro Comp?

I'm in the market for a all mountain FS bike. I'm new to suspension, ride my bike daily, but don't have a large budget (family, time constraints, etc). I'm about 5"8" and 210 lbs. I realize the xl frame may be too large but I do have fairly long arms, at least I find that with shirts. I'd love t ... Read More »
