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.

I now have two pairs of HiFis: black and gray. They fit well and have adjustable waist with Velcro side adjustment. I usually wear a light weight nylon belt too. Love the longer leg length for sun and poison oak protection. Fabric is light but so far has held up well in my one hip-impacting crash.
These are really great shorts - I started my CR journey with a pair of Mtn Surf shorts, which I also love as an everyday pair of summer shorts. I added these based on a CR agent's recommendation. They're much more substantial/techy in their build compared to the Mtn Surf, which seemed unnecessary to me at the time, but I figured I'd give them a shot. I really like them on rides, just super comfortable, yet not bulky or too warm. They're a bit long which is more of a style thing to be aware of vs a pro/con. I like them a lot and just picked up my 2nd pair in a different color.
Great pair of shorts. Love the 13” inseam being 6’ 2”. Not sure of the Velcro waist.
Very comfortable, stylish shorts with great elasticity. The velcro straps that tighten the waist come undone while riding, so a belt is ultimately needed (for me). Also, my Samsung Note20 Ultra fits in the side leg pocket, which is a plus.
I like the length and the fit. I also like that there are belt loops to use if I want, and we’ll placed zip pockets. There are also Velcro tighteners on the hips, which are fine, but there is a very large, thin piece of fabric that has to be folded over to engage the Velcro. If you undo the Velcro the waist line changes to I don’t know what, but absolutely enormous. There should be a smaller piece of fabric there or elastic. I can feel the folded fabric but it’s not distracting or anything. I just laughed because it undid the Velcro to adjust and my pants just fell to the floor.
