Our most popular technical MTB short, designed for lightweight pedaling performance.
Engineered to be the benchmark lightweight trail short, this liner-free version of our Summit Short will earn its place among your favorite gear. The non-elastic waistband provides a minimalist feel and holds these shorts comfortably in place, while external hook-and-loop straps let you dial in the fit on the fly. New Trail Access side pockets are angled backwards, instead of down the front of the thigh, to shift contents comfortably out of the way while pedaling and allow easy accessibility while riding. We have even bonded and angled the leg openings to prevent snagging on knee pads and to keep the shorts off your calves. The durable water repellant coating sheds trail spray and keeps these shorts looking fresh ride after ride. Add a Liner short of your choice, perhaps our full featured and supremely comfortable Cargo Bib Liner short, to complete the package.
Main Body: 96% polyester, 4% elastane Other: 100% polyester; Made in China
USE SIMPLE DETERGENTS WITH NO ADDITIVES Never use detergents with fabric softeners, perfumes or any additive type product. The general rule of thumb is the simpler the better. Many detergents with additives leave "surfactants" behind on a fabric's fibers that inhibit the technical performance. Typically the best detergents to use will have "Clear" or "Free" in their names. Don't pour the detergent directly onto the clothing, put it in the washer first, when you start the water. If something is not functionally working, but is not dirty, try rinsing it twice in warm to hot water. This will help get rid of the harmful surfactants. READ THE CONTENT CARE LABEL: On the inside of your garment, or on the hangcard, there are instructions for the care of that individual piece. On garments this will be on a side seam or back seam label. Follow those directions. On finer fabrics, use a "Gentle" cycle. Close all zippers, attach "hook and loop" closures on gloves YOU CAN USE THE DRYER, CAREFULLY: If you use a dryer be sure to use a lower / warm heat setting (Do NOT use a commercial dryer or a "Hot" setting). This will often restore the fabric and help the water and wind repellent qualities. If in doubt, hang the clothing to dry.
