Catching more air than ever
by Anthony B. -
OK, I admit, I bought these because they were red and had air in their name. Australia is hot, summer is here, and every year I wish someone would make some shorts that didn't make a point of steaming my whatsits. I was skeptical until my first ride in 35C temps. Firstly, they let the air in. The included liner is mesh too - and it also lets the air in. The pad is also decent quality and proved comfortable. The pockets are well situated and allow a plus-sized phone in a case to sit comfortably.
Awesome for hot days

So far so good. The front panels allow heaps of airflow to keep your thighs and balls nice and cool. No other shorts I've used compare on hot days. Deep zippered pockets are good too. Fit is loose and doesn't restrict movement, but not too baggy. Knee pads fit fine too. Highly recommend for riders in hot dry climates.
