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.
Very comfortable wore all day before and after a ride
These are great. I’m actually between L and XL and own one of each. There is enough overlap in the adjustable waist that I can wear either. I’m usually a size 35 for reference and I’m 6’1” 220 lbs. The L is more fitted and XL more a baggy style. Both fit over my pads easily including my hip and tail bone padded liners. More than enough pockets for organizing. Phone stays put in either the open slash pocket or zippered thigh pocket (iPhone 14 Pro). I have the black and stone/tan colors and they clean up well after muddy rides. Really no complaints. I’ll probably buy a third pair in size Large.
Club ride has always scored high for me. Comfortable- useful pockets- look good. What else do you want?
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!
