Steadfast staple for the go-fast crowd.
One of the most versatile shorts in POC's line-up, the Men's Essential XC Short combines a pre-shaped design that's slightly less baggy than traditional trail offerings with a lightweight, stretchy fabric that's treated to repel light rain showers and puddle splashes on the trail. This pre-shaped design makes it an excellent choice for the swift pedaling of cross-country rides, seeing the rear is shorter for uncompromising movement and the knees are a bit longer to ensure full coverage. Toss them over your favorite padded liner short or pair them with a supportive spandex short for hours of continuous comfort when you're training or just riding for plain old fun.
