Junior has already shown that they're ready to take their bike beyond casual spins around the driveway and backyard, and they looked pretty intrigued at the race you took them to watch last weekend. They've earned the right to ditch the gym shorts and upgrade to real cycling kit, and Scott's Junior Shorts make a great introduction. Made with the same moisture wicking blend of nylon and elastane that Scott uses in its adult shorts, the Junior Shorts employ a close, tailored fit that, while marking a departure from baggy everyday shorts, won't feel uncomfortably tight to a little ripper unaccustomed to the fit of cycling apparel. The versatile length equips the shorts to fit in on XC trails as well as the roads, and their flatlock seaming and elastic waistband promise to move with energetic young riders and follow their body movements in the saddle. Of course, the shorts wouldn't be complete without Scott's plush, breathable Junior Padding, included to strategically cushion and support young riders as they rack up the miles and test their limits on longer rides.
