Realizing that a large segment of XC and all mountain riders would rather not wear tights, the Pearl Izumi Men's Divide Short provides a laid back, relaxed feel for hammering up lung busting ascents and bombing steep switchbacks. Its lightweight polyester shell dries quickly when you're working up a sweat, while Direct Vent panels channel cool air over your legs for enhanced temperature regulation. Long enough to fit over your knee pads without being overly baggy, the short's 14 inch inseam offers enough coverage for all mountain rides. Durable polyester makes up the bulk of the short's body for protection against trail wear and tear. Additionally, the hook and loop waist tabs adjust for a secure fit that won't leave you readjusting your shorts every 10 minutes on the trail. Included with the Divide Short is a liner with integrated 3D Tour Chamois for moisture wicking performance and extra padding on long, sweaty rides. And unlike many riding shorts, the Divide's chamois liner is detachable. This provides several benefits. You can adjust the fit and look that you want because the shorts and chamois are separate. Moreover, you can opt to wear the shorts without the chamois liner during casual situations, and you can choose to wear the removable chamois liner with other shorts, too.
