The Recon Short is engineered from WINDSTOPPER® fabric, chosen for it's comfort, breathability, water-resistant, and total wind protection. This combination of attributes makes the Recon ideal when the rain comes down, or the trail spray comes up. 7mesh tape the seams to maximise the wind and moisture protection, and reduce weight and bulk. The Recon uses articulated crotch and leg patterning for an optimal riding position and excellent freedom of movement. Factor in a slightly longer fit and scalloped leg opening - the front is longer than the back, adding protection while accommodating knee pads - and you have the ultimate off-season short.

If you ride year round and want a tough, durable and protective short then look no further than the Recon's. The perfect fit and weather protective fabric gives you a short you can ride through any season no matter what the weather throws your way.
