Dakine Descent Short -

The folks at Dakine know DH and DH riders. We aren't a delicate crowd. Fortunately, Dakine's DH-specific Descents Shorts aren't delicate, either. Built with tough nylon fabric, a custom ratcheting waist belt, and reinforced stitching throughout, the Descent is ready for all the abuse you plan to dish out.

The first thing you'll notice about the Descent short is the burly nylon canvas fabric. It can stand up to season after season of serious DH abuse. Dakine also used reinforced stitching through key areas, so you won't be explaining any wardrobe malfunctions to angry parents, frightened children, or the police after your next ride. The gusseted crotch and custom ratcheting waist adjustment give you the fit and freedom you need, and special patterning at the knees is designed to fit over your pads.

The Dakine Descent Short comes in sizes Small through XX-Large. It's available in Kelly, Red, or Black.

Flying off jumps and screaming down steep slopes is not for the faint of heart, so your riding shorts shouldn’t be either. The Dakine Descent Short features a custom ratcheting waist adjustment and woven grip tape on the interior waistband to keep it from riding as swiftly as you are. Patterning at the knees was designed to fit over pads. Two zippered side pockets keep your phone and other necessities secure.
