Long dedicated to the cause of gravity riders everywhere, the Dakine Descent Shorts are born from Dakine employees' love for going fast and flying high. The first thing you'll notice about the Descent short is the burly, nylon like fabric. More specifically, it's 600 Denier polyester, ultra tough stuff that can take a fall or two or twenty and come clean with a mere brush of the hand. Dakine also uses reinforced stitching through key areas, so you won't be explaining any wardrobe malfunctions to angry parents, frightened children, or the police after your next ride. The 4 way stretch gusseted crotch and custom ratcheting waist adjustment give you the fit and freedom you need, and special patterning at the knees is designed to fit over your pads.
