The support of a bib, the storage of a pack, and the protection of pads. These are the TRAIL Liner Bib Shorts, created for those of us who like to keep it light and lean on the trail, without sacrificing anything in the process.
Designed to be worn directly under your TRAIL Cargo Shorts, the liner bib shorts incorporate flat, flexible bib straps that lay flat along your torso, disappearing once you get into the riding position. At the back, we added our time-tested Stabilizator mesh panel that both keeps you cool and supports the two cargo pockets along the lower back. These pockets have been positioned high enough to avoid contact with your over shorts’ waistband, yet low enough for easy access to their contents under your jersey. Now you can lighten up and leave your pack at home during shorter rides, relying instead on the slim dual pockets to hold an extra bottle, pump, tool, keys, etc.
The leg panels employ our Aerofit fabric, which is a high-stretch, ultrasoft material developed with breathability in mind, keeping you cool and dry when things heat up. The waist has been constructed with a tall V-shaped panel that comfortably molds to your lower abdomen while in the riding position. We also extended the inseam for a cleaner wrap on the thighs, and strategically placed our removable impact pads (NOT INCLUDED) at the hips for crash protection during demanding rides. Oval in shape, and constructed with 8mm-thick high-density polyurethane, these pads are optimally positioned to both protect and never impede your pedal stroke.
