XC and all-mountain riders spend as much time in the saddle as they do standing up on the pedals. For that reason, a liner short with a chamois is essential. The Alpinestars Drop Shorts incorporate a removable liner with a chamois to reduce fatigue by absorbing shock and vibration. The chamois also pulls moisture away from your body to keep you dry and comfortable.
Alpinestars built the Drop Shorts with strategically located stretch and vent panels. On the back and in the crotch, spandex panels stretch for an unlimited range of motion. This also adds to the shorts' durability, because it stretches rather than wearing. The synthetic fabric pulls moisture away from your body to keep you dry and comfortable, even in the heat of the summer. Alpinestars also added zippered mesh vents on the thighs that push hot, stale air out and allow fresh, cool air to flow in and around your body. Stretch ripstop reinforcements at the hem add durability.
A removable liner with a chamois absorbs shock and vibration to reduce fatigue. It also manages moisture to keep you dry and comfortable. The liner can also be worn with other shorts, so you can transform any of your other shorts into bike shorts. Alpinestars also included hook-and-loop waist adjustment straps that allow you to perfectly dial in your fit, and flat side pockets provide comfortable, convenient, secure storage while you ride.
Alpinestars Drop Shorts come in Black/White, True Red/White, Bright Green/White, and White/Black and are available in even sizes 28 to 40.
I've used these x3 since I've gotten them. They fit true to size, not loose as the tech specs state. Great material with good breathability. It has plenty of vents and pockets. Only drawback that I can find is the chamois. A little short on the thighs, but breaths great and doesn't get annoying after a long ride. Has plenty of padding that extends into the inner thighs not just the crotch area. Definitely worth the discounted price.
