Lycra kit may not be your thing, even when you're racing around on smooth XC singletrack, but you also know better than to show up to the start line in your favorite enduro baggies. Troy Lee Designs' Ace Shorts with Liner give you something in the middle: a tailored, streamlined cut that won't interfere with your body movements as you race, with a fit that leaves a little more to the imagination than skin tight Lycra does. Constructed with a stretchy, breathable polyester blend, the Ace will keep you cool as you heat up on the course, with the freedom of a removable mesh liner complete with a plush perforated chamois. Welded intake and exit vents allow for continuous airflow in the shorts, while the low waist helps prevent seat grab from rudely interrupting your race rhythm. Finally, a subtle laser cut side pocket gives you room to stash race food and essentials without having to feel them squished against your leg while you pedal.
