- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These are the only shorts I've found (tried on well over 30 mtb shorts) that avoid the horrible thigh-pad-gap. They're on the sturdier side, so love these for bike park days. I've taken a few small tumbles while wearing these, and they've kept my skin in-tact and only have small signs of wear on the hip and thigh where they hit the ground. 10/10 recommend for leggy ladies (I'm 5'8" with long legs).
