Blistering fast downhills and rowdy freeride antics require tough wearing shorts with extra impact protection, should things go terribly wrong. The POC Men's Resistance Strong Shorts protect your hips and sides from abusive crashes on your slackened trail whip. Integrated VPD System padding absorbs the crushing force of high speed falls while SuperFabric side panels resist abrasion when you eject onto rocky surfaces. Durable nylon stretch stands up to the rigors of lift serviced bike parks and shuttle accessed descents. The ergonomic, articulated design easily slides over your knee pads, without restricting key pedaling movements. In fact, its strategically placed inseams virtually eliminate chafing and irritation on your bike, with a hook and loop waistband for a truly dialed fit. Also, there's a soft, brushed lining material for a pleasantly smooth feel and enhanced moisture management. Plus, the zippered rear pocket handily stores your lift pass and zippered front pockets make easy work of carrying trail snacks and riding accessories.
