When One Industries says limited application of non essential embellishments in describing the Gamma DH Shorts, it means one pocket for a media player and a fit that's dialed for downhill racing. This translates to a cut that favors crouched, aggressive positioning on DH bikes that's just loose enough to layer over armored liners like the EXO Shorts. If you're shopping mountain bike shorts, then search out One Industries' Ion or Atom if it's a bottom for all day, lift access riding, then you're in the right spot. The Gamma DH is primarily constructed from a 900D polyester double thread Oxford fabric. This is a durable, ripstop weave that's not only used for its strength characteristics but, more importantly, engineered stretch, too. This, along with stretch panels at the rear yolk and behind the leg openings, permits the Gamma DH to give, for full use of body English when riding on the edge of control while ensuring that a slide for life won't be these shorts' last. On that durability note, One Industries uses even more durable 1000D Kordura on the panels that interact with the saddle. For ventilation and temperature control, Paratex, a lightweight and wicking fabric, is used where appropriate. The waist uses a tough plastic buckle to avoid popped buttons in the worst of circumstances. As stated before, the Gamma DH only has one rear zippered pocket with a media port, as this lower is intended for resort access and running hot laps. The One Industries Gamma DH Shorts come in sizes 28 through 38 and in three colors: Navychartreuse, Blackcyan, and Black.
