With hundreds of miles of single track right outside our front door, we often go from the trails, to our work, and then right back again. Club Ride Apparel was founded by Mike Herlinger, in Sun Valley, Idaho, who, having similar daily activity, wanted technical riding apparel that was also livable. For this reason, Club Ride was founded, and its Half Rack Knickers were invented. Now, you gain access to knickers that are so versatile that, just like the label says, you'll wear the daily.
Club Ride constructed the Half Rack knickers from its RideDryWear fabric. This material was made both lightweight and stretchable due to its polyester blend composition. Additionally, though, this fiber selection makes the knickers quite efficient at wicking moisture away from the skin. As a result, you don't ever have to worry about being left soaked in sweat at the end of a ride. And even though this fabric is lightweight, RideDryWear is also abrasion-resistant, which means that they're not going to need any pampering on the trail.
Unlike traditional, baggy off-road shorts, the Half Back knickers feature a more streamlined fit. Contrary to what you may think, though, they're perfectly suited for off-road riding. The RideDryWear's one-way stretch is placed according to how you move on the bike. For example, the gusseted crotch panel stretches from side to side but not fore to aft. And while it seems like a gimmick, it prevents sag in the seat panel, which means that you won't catch on your saddle. Additionally, the knees are articulated for a full-range of pedal motion, and the knickers are fastened with both a zippered fly and button closure. Adjustable cams at the waist also customize the fit, and belt loops mean that you're able to rock your favorite buckle during the workday.
And because Club Ride knows that you'll be wearing these around town, it included roomy front pockets and a secure zip side pocket.
The Club Ride Apparel Half Rack Knickers are available in four sizes from Small to X-Large and in the colors Ale and Raven. Please note that these knickers do not include either a chamois or a pair of liner shorts.
