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.

I was worried about how long these would be as they end just below my knee. I was _sure_ they'd catch my knee when I'd go between standing and squatting positions, but surprisingly, they didn't at all. They just slid right up and got out of the way. The positions of the zippered side pockets are really nice, too, as I didn't feel my phone or keys while I was riding. While they fit a bit large, the velcro straps on the sides helped a lot.
Too many MTB shorts are a little too narrow. Too many fit well but lack appropriate places to carry a smart phone, small wallet, etc. These shorts solve all of it at once. They are super comfortable -- a great length (13"), just loose fitting enough to never restrict movement, but not all over the place. I carry my phone in the zipped side pocket and simply forget about it. It's never in the way or feeling like it's swinging around. I would love to see them available in more colors.
Fit the bill. Will order again
My new favorite shorts. Love the length. Covers my knee pads even in sitting position. Wish it came in more colors.
2 problem, take on stains easily. Squeek when I ride. Usually up a steep climb after a few minutes and then they sqeek on every stroke.
