A good fitting pair of shorts is an essential for every mountain biker. Slim fitting shorts are made from stretchy fabric to move with your movements to give you complete flexibility and comfort. The compression is also helpful for protecting your muscles during activity. Padded MTB shorts improve comfort while sat for long periods, as well as helping with impact absorption on bumpier tracks.
Bib shorts secure your clothing in place to prevent shorts from slipping down or your jersey from rising up. Look out for XC bibs that are especially designed for races including anti-abrasive and highly durable materials.
