Tough for the trail.
You won't find seams where your saddle meets the Maloja WernerM. Short, you also won't find pockets placed where items get ejected when pedaling. These are just a few of the mountain biking purposefulness the folks at Maloja design into every product.
Riding off road can be taxing on textiles; rocks and tree branches can quickly reduce a garment to rags. But, tough clothing can be stiff, heavy, restrictive, and hot. Maloja constructed WernerM.'s outer shell from Polystretch. It's a lightweight, highly breathable, and quick drying fabric that's resistant to grabby trailside vegetation and abrasion from rocks.
Polystretch also has natural give -- yet, to provide ultimate maneuverability and unrestrictive pedaling, Maloja adds a rear stretch panel for total freedom of movement. This panel resides under the wide, unobtrusive waist band. The waist band's also free from belt loops and buckles that interfere with packs by snagging them or create uncomfortable hotspots.
The WernerM. does not come with a chamois, but its generous, cycling specific cut provides plenty of room for your favorite liner. There are two front zippered pockets and two back pockets. The Maloja WernerM. comes in sizes Small through XX-Large and three colors; Moonless, Denim, and Pine.

gamble that paid off
I was pretty buzzed when I bought these. Having never seen this brand on the trail or in magazines it was kinda a gamble. What piqued my interest was the wild design on the shorts. The sizing guide is a little off and I recommend you order your normal size. (By the chart I was a medium but they were a little too snug.) The shorts a very comfortable, and have great utility. I love that the front pockets have zips. There is also a velcro waist adjuster inside the shorts to customize the fit.
Maloja won me over with this pair of shorts and I am ready to buy more from them.
