Mavic's Stratos Men's Shorts are serious business. If Mavic's general commitment to shredability isn't enough to convince you, just look at the design. Mavic made the Stratos to handle XC, AM, and Enduro riding even some DH won't kill them, with tough but light Trail Tech fabric and plenty of strategically located Trail Tech ST stretch panels to keep them intact in crashes and comfortable when you're churning through the climbs. Laser cut Micro Vent ventilation panels help you keep your cool when the going heats up, and a hook and loop waist adjustment system renders belts useless and sagging shorts a thing of the past. The cut of Stratos is loose enough to work with pads if you want to get all freeridey, but slim enough to wear on full on XC missions, and the pockets have bonded zippers to increase durability without adding extra bulk.
