You'd swear you should've been born in the Atherton family. But, you weren't, so you're stuck racing enduro like the rest of us mortals. An aggressive bermed turn, a perfectly executed jump, or a speedy series of switchbacks might make you feel like you're coming into your own as an adopted Atherton sibling from time to time, but a boulder-strewn rock garden and a few slick corners beside a cliff send you straight back to a Claudio-esque inner monologue of panic. That's okay. Race through the good, the bad, and the ugly in the Giro Havoc Short, and this enduro-specific short will keep up every step of the way.
Built with rugged four-way stretch fabric and topped off with a DWR treatment, the Havoc will handle big drops, fast courses, and the occasional blowout with effective tailoring and ample stretch. Giro designed the leg openings to accommodate knee pads when needed, and perforated vents keep air moving on-course, whether you're riding through cool New Zealand drizzle or moon dust on a weeknight race close to home.

Well made shorts. Stars for pockets. Don't seem as breathable as advertised. DWR works. Love the adjustable waist. Slim fit. If you like baggy, these are not for you.
- Fit: True to size
I decided to try these after a few other pairs of shorts needed to be retired. I am really happy with them so far. The perforated knees allow air to still move through the short and will keep you cool. The inseam is a bit longer than most, but great if you wear kneepads, as you will never have your shorts riding up above your pad. I would recommend pick a pair up.
