For the hottest and most humid days you'll encounter on the trail, the Kitsbow AM Ventilated Men's Shorts are some of the best threads you can drape upon yourself. Cutting edge materials and features more than justify the price you pay for some of the best shorts you can buy for mountain biking. The primary fabric from which the shorts are made is called Schoeller shape, a nylonelastane blend sourced from one of the premium names in German fabric engineering. Treated with Schoeller's own 3XDRY water resistant treatment, it's incredibly light and breathable, and feels soft, yet is also remarkably tough, able to handle crashes and abrasion as well as any ripstop polyester. Despite its virtually tailor fit cut, it offers a complete and seamless range of motion without the baggy feel associated with most knee length mountain bike shorts. The articulated waistband is cut lower on the sides and slightly higher in the back for ample protection where you need it and more ventilation where you don't, and alloy slip hooks on the sides of it allow for up to an inch of adjustment on each side to dial in your proper fit.
