Materials & Care

Fabric Content

79% Polyamide, 21% Eslastane

Made in LT

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.

Everything needed and nothing extra

Fantastic design with two thigh pockets, minimal belt loops, and breezy fabric. If you're in between, size up. Fabric is really stretchy and comfortable, but not baggy if you are in between or have large thighs. 6'1" 175lbs - Large is better than Medium

  • Product fit Runs small
  • Size purchased Medium

New go to MTB shorts!

These move well, allow for great breathability while I am moving all over the trail. I recently lost my front wheel on a loose rock bench cut, fell hard and the shorts didn't show any signs of impact, yet my hip had a few solid scratches. I was amazed at how well the shorts held up and how they protected me from a greater injury. LOVE these!

  • Size purchased L
  • Product fit True to size
