Pants are fine for downhill when your day consists of hanging out in a shade tent and just doing a couple of runs before getting on the podium. But when you're hitting line after line, trail after trail, nothing compares to shorts. More specifically, nothing compares to our Demo Pro Shorts.
We made them from a woven version of our lightweight and ultra-breathable VaporRize™ fabrics. As a result, the shorts are more than tough enough to take repeated spills while you're finding your line (or losing it), without sacrificing anything to comfort. And to further this concept, they also include laser perforated venting that's just as effective at dumping excess heat as mesh, only it doesn't create a weakness in the overall strength of the shorts. In essence, this means that you won't find yourself blowing these shorts out for a long time to come.
In terms of fit, you'll find that these shorts are plenty baggy enough to layer body armor and pads, and there are side waist adjustment tabs that keep the waist where you want when the pockets are loaded. And for all-year riding, the Demo Pros also have the added benefit of being treated to be water-repellant.
Lastly, there's a removable pair of liner shorts that are equipped with our Body Geometry Mountain Chamois. This insert was designed to provide plenty of support to the body without being so substantial that it feels like it's getting in the way. As a result, the feel is one of versatility, and with the added touch of relieving soft tissue pressure while increasing blood flow, you can all but guarantee that you'll be riding in supreme comfort.
- VaporRize™ woven fabrics are treated to be water-repellant, while remaining durable, stretchy, and lightweight for piece of mind on the mountain.
- Three zippered pockets provide ample, secure room to store everything that you need while you're out riding.
- Laser perforated venting adds sophisticated points of ventilation that don't detract from the durability or performance of the shorts.
- Designed to retain a loose and open fit while using pads and armor.
- Side waist adjustment tabs ensure that the fit of the shorts is easily customizable and dialed-in, even when your pockets are loaded.
- Deflect® UV 50+ protects your skin from harmful, ultraviolet rays.
- 16" inseam (size 34" waist) falls low and wide at the leg openings for the perfect fit and coverage while wearing pads.
