These were for my husband who is an avid mountain biker. i know he is particular about his riding kit, so i did not ask how they worked. Finally, he told me they were very good shorts, and the padded briefs were excellent too. He wears them all the time so i know he likes them.
Previously, the baggy style mtb shorts I've tried have been okay for casual riding, have never been great performers on singletrack....Until these Enduro shorts. I've only ridden them once, but the difference in performance from what I've used before was obvious from the start.
Great price, comfortable, and looks good however I only got 8 to 10 rides (no crashes) in before the seams started to split open. Can't recommend.
When I first purchased these, I was disappointed that after only a few rides, the outer shell had several holes as the fabric failed. I contacted the manufacturer, and they were awesome about replacing the shorts. Unfortunately, the 2nd pair only lasted through 2 rides before the same wear issues. At that point I gave up on them.
