The Altura Attack One80 short is intended as a summer riding short — lightweight, no nonsense and great value.
The Sombrio Highline short is versatile and its handled countless wash cycles and still looks good.
Altura’s Tech 5 BibShort includes built-in storage. It features five integrated pockets — two on the hips, two on the lower thighs and one at the small of the back.
The Stage 2 is now constructed from a lighter-weight polyester material and features a DWR (durable water repellent) coating.
The first short from Gore that’s long enough for proper trail riding, combined with a super-lightweight fabric and slim cut that’s excellent for warm weather days.
This bibshort is part of Specialized’s SWAT (Storage Water Air Tools) range. When we first tested it, a year ago, you could only buy it in combination with a baggy…
