Whether you're just getting started trail riding, or you're a seasoned veteran, getting your staples dialed is the first step to a new riding season, and POC's essential MTB short makes a perfect start. These trail-ready baggies feature lightweight, durable nylon fabric that stretches with you, while actively seeking out sweat and pulling it away from your skin to keep you dry. They are cut for the trail, with a little extra coverage at the back to keep you covered when you're on the bars, and pre-bent knees ideal for hammering on the pedals. The long inseam provides coverage against scrub oak and low-hanging branches, and pairs up seamlessly with body armor, so you don't have uncomfortable gaps. To finish the Essential shorts off, POC tops them with a DWR coating for shedding mud and stains, and packs in adjustable hook-and-loop tabs at the waist for a comfortable fit that's fine tuned just for you.
