Dainese HG 1 shorts £119.95

Mountain Biking UK - - WRECKED & RATED -

These are the tough­est shorts in Dainese’s line-up but are still light­weight, at 235g (small). They use a stretchy ny­lon/Ly­cra mix to give a leg-hug­ging fit that isn’t re­stric­tive on the bike. For the in­tended down­hill use, the tight fit and min­i­mal fea­tures work well, but for more ca­sual rid­ing, the shorts are less prac­ti­cal, with just one small zipped pocket on the waist for a bank card or lift pass. The asym­met­ric cut of the legs means they cover pads nicely, leav­ing no ex­cess ma­te­rial. Al­though the elas­ti­cated sin­gle-pop­per clo­sure works, it does stick out a bit and look a lit­tle odd. Luke www.wind­wave.co.uk
