Three, two, one...drop!
You'll be glad you're wearing the 100% Men's R-Core DH Short before dropping into wicked downhill courses with intimidating rock gardens, massive jumps, and steep roll-overs. This relaxed-fitting downhill short features rugged construction of 600D polyester for impressive durability when you're thrashing them on a regular basis. Stretch-mesh ventilation and laser-cut perforations rapidly expel built-up perspiration and body heat, meaning you'll feel utterly cool and confident during stressful downhill runs in warm weather.
To maintain a secure fit, the R-Core's adjustable ladder buckle dials it in, so you won't have to worry about these shorts slipping down as you ride. There's a zippered security pocket for storing your riding essentials within quick reach. Additionally, you'll appreciate the rear stretch panel for full mobility when you're getting rowdy on blistering downhill runs.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
These shorts are designed to take a beating. Fit is great. If you are looking for breathability, these probably aren't your shorts. If you are looking for protection, I haven't seen a better short out there.
Solid Pair of DH Shorts
They were a little bit heavier and bulkier than I was expecting. I donât think Iâd ever use them pedaling uphill on the trails. But great dedicated DH shorts.
Comfortable and Durable

I don't usually wear what I would consider heavier shorts, especially for longer trail rides, but the 100% R-Core shorts have been great. They are pretty light and comfortable for the heavier denier, which add outstanding durability. The perforations on the inside of the legs add some breath-ability to dump excess heat, and the 1 side pocket is just enough to have the ability to fit what you need.
How "stretchy" are these?
