Materials & Care

Fabric Content

Fabric: 79% Polyamide / 21% Elastane

Made in IT

Caring for your cycling gear properly will extend its life and maintain its performance, fit and quality. Its important to consider these instructions carefully. While we stand behind the quality of our apparel, not adhering to these instructions will void our warranty against manufacturing & defects. 

We strongly recommend washing your new gear before wearing it. Youll find that your apparel will soften, and fit & comfort will improve after washing - especially with bibs & shorts. 

Machine wash cool, 86F (30C) with like colors: Cooler temps maintain better longevity for your apparel. Like colors, especially lights, will remain more vibrant when washed with like colors. 

Use mild detergent. Do not bleach or dry clean: Strong detergents & bleach can break down the fibers and elastane in the garment, dramatically reducing its life. 

Close all fastenings: this goes also for other garments mixed in with your cycling apparel. Velcro closures or clasps can catch on stitching or trim and damage your garments. 

Lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry: Do not put your cycling apparel in the dryer. Even on low heat. Dont do it. Heat can damage fabric, elastic and heat transfer logos very easily. Lycra (Elastane) is used throughout our garments to provide compression and support and is susceptible to damage from heat and can irreparably damage your apparel.

Kick *** Do-It-All

Love these shorts. Great for gravel, but awesome for mountain biking as well. The fabric is amazing - great stretch, great breathability, light but durable. Super comfortable. I also really appreciate the thought put into the center front button, and the waist adjustment. Both are burly without being bulky. Keep the shorts in place, but aren’t over-engineered. I have to say they’ve done a great job keeping this piece super simple, and including only the essentials - great fabric, thigh pockets, waist adjustment and closure. Best gravel/mtb short I’ve ever had.

Fit is spot on and the adjustable strap works well (an improvement over my favorite Dakine long shorts w/chamois inner shorts). The TRAIL short also works well with the Foundation Short as an inner (I'm not a huge bib fan). Zipping up one of the side pockets while riding takes a bit of finesse but can be done.

My favorite baggy

Great shorts, I just picked up my second pair after the first ones became my go-to all summer. A touch slim in the leg, in what I think is a good way. A touch long, which I also like. I'm 5'8/155 and the medium is perfect.

Love 'em!

Couldn't be happier with these shorts. Love the light, stretchy material that looks and feels great on the bike. I'm a 33-34" waist, so the Large fits me well.
