For hiking and generally kicking around town, the Club Ride HiFi has been pulled from the suitcase very often. It rides on the body just as well while walking down the trail as it does pedaling up a mountain.
Overall, I’m very pleased with the Hifi shorts. Despite their substantive nature, I neither felt too hot during rides in cooked canyons, nor too chilly in morning mist and fog. They strike that balance of slim enough and just the right length while having comfort that doesn’t flap.
Anthony Smith’s Editor Pick
The 13’ inseam gives you plenty of coverage on the bike even covering the tops of your knee pads to avoid the dreaded pad gap when the trails get rowdy. External velcro adjustment straps keep the shorts where you want them. Lightweight stretchy fabric is water and dirt-resistant keeping you drier while brushing up against the dew-covered bushes on those early morning rides.
They're my favorite shorts I own, great fit and lots of pockets!
As most of us do, I've been searching for a nice stretchy short that looks nice but, more importantly, functions well. What I need from a pair of mountain bike shorts are stretch (comfort), durability, good fit that isn't restrictive, well thought out pockets, and stylish. I think these nail it on all fronts! I really like how these fit and how well they ride. One of the best things about Club Ride apparel is that they function like techy bike apparel without being techy. These shorts personify that. I have both the black and light tan versions and love them both!
Absolutely love these shorts for riding and anything else I do. Super comfortable. Stretch fabric is excellent. Pocket on each side, one for a phone and one for a wallet if needed. (Does anyone really put their wallet in their back pocket anymore?) I like that the zippers are horizontal instead of vertical so things don’t fall out if they’re not zipped. I own two pairs and will buy another pair.
CR, Please make a pair of pants exactly like these!
I was a skeptic about the chamois/shorts combo thing. Q at Over the Edge in Hurricane talked me into trying a pair. Well these things are awesome. I now have six pair and an equal number of chamois. These are rugged yet comfortable and wash up easily. The fit is true to size.
LOVE these shorts. I like my shorts to cover my knees when I'm standing, and I have long legs, so I was thrilled to find a 13" inseam short for biking. The shorts are very comfortable, versatile, and durable, and have become my absolute "go-to" for any kind of ride. And they wear very well for casual use too.
