Essential Enduro Short

Perform at your best on hotter trail rides and midsummer race days with the POC Essential Enduro Short.

An elastic waist band with adjustable hook-and-loop tabs ensures a precision fit, while two zippered side pockets provide secure storage of your belongings.

I was hesitant to try these because earlier versions seemed to have sizing issues, but the new crop fit bang on. I typically wear a 32" or 33" waist, and the POC mediums are right on the money. Along the same lines, I usually wear 34" inseam pants, and these shorts fall just below my kneecaps. They pair really well with POC VPD Air knee pads, if you're wondering. They don't hang-up at all. The fit and feel are very similar to Pearl Izumi Summit shorts... a nice stretchy and light softshell material with a trimmer cut. Glad I bought 'em!

Well made shorts. Pretty true to size in the waist, but the thighs are slimmer than I would prefer. Length goes to mid knee.

These shorts look and feel great. I like the tight fit and use them for shorter lighter rides.

What's the sizing on the 2020 shorts like? Previous models seemed to run small judging from reviews. I'm a 32-33" waist, so it looks like a medium would fit the bill, but wanted to check...
