Gravity is your friend.
A truly comfortable downhill short should barely be noticeable, seeing that you'll be raging down scary-steep trails strewn with hefty boulders and mandatory airs. The Fox Racing Men's Demo DH Short are purposely designed for the dedicated downhill rider and competitive racer preferring the airy-cool comfort and freedom of movement of a relaxed fitting short.
To ensure riding comfort, Fox Racing developed the Demo DH Short with RAP patterning (Rider Attack Position), which favors the aggressive riding position required on gravity trails and lift-accessed downhills. It's a bit more relaxed and longer cut than a standard trail short, which gives you ample freedom when pedaling uphill isn't required, as well as extra coverage from flying debris and nasty spills at high speeds.
The short itself is constructed with robust, yet lightweight 600D polyester for bombproof durability without leaving you drenched in sweat. The front gusset and rear yoke employ the use of stretch woven fabric for fluid flexibility when you're railing around high-speed berms and throwing whips over bigger gaps. Inside the short, the mesh liner adds plenty of support while moving moisture off your body for a comfortable feel in warm conditions. This robust construction is complemented with a ratcheting waistline for the ultimate in security, regardless of how fast you're racing downhill.

I bought these for my annual DH experience in Angel Fire, NM. Home to the Gravity games and the excellent enduro series, I knew I needed first class gear for the experience. These shorts are perfect, mobile, comfortable and attractive. Tough as nails and looked great after 3 hardcore days of DH fun. Buy them, you won't be disappointed!!
