The Good: Thin, light, stretchy, breathable and super comfortable.
The Bad: Do not offer as much protection as other burly shorts but that's ok as they are more of a XC/trail short anyways.
The first thing you'll notice about these shorts is how thin and light they are. They are perfect for super hot days or just long days in the saddle as they are really breathable and comfortable. The reason they are so comfy is simply how thin and breathable they are, they aredefinitely a very minimalist short but at the same time still pack a lot of cool features.
I really like that all pockets have zippers and are they are large enough to carry most of the necessities for riding. The shorts also include zippered mini pocket which comes with a goggle wipe. Size wise they are pretty true to size but also have Velcro waste bands to customize the fit. The shorts also come with a detachable inner liner chamois, I’ve taken mine out and they are still super comfy on the saddle.
Comfort wise these are fantastic, they have vents on the inside of the leg and on hot days these are the perfect choice. You can really notice the stretch material that Fox uses and I think this is a big factor in the reason why these are so comfortable. The additional thing about these have a really casual looking styling so that they can also be wore on the street.
Overall I am super happy with these shorts and although they might not be my first choice for riding DH, they work superb for XC/trail rides. I would highly recommend.
