Product Description

Race Face Flank liner protective undershorts are constructed with a second-skin comfort fit to keep hip and thigh protection in place throughout your full range of motion.

Key to performance is a removable D30 high impact shock absorbing foam that protects your hips while low-profile custom moulded foam at the outer thigh offers extra protection against knocks.

Strategic mesh fabric mapping and a high performance, Italian-made chamois with triple-density foam and rapid sweat absorption technology encourage air flow when things heat up. Contrast flatlock stitching and soft brushed ‘Boxer Style’ waistband add to comfort and style.

Key Features:

  • Removable D30™ High-performance shock absorbing protective foam at hips.
  • Butterfly mesh throughout ensures a second skin fit to keep targeted hip protection in place.
  • Highly durable mesh panels at inner thigh ensure maximum venting.
  • Custom heat-moulded foam at outer thighs offers additional protection against knocks and bumps.
  • Flatlock seam finish ensures mobility and comfort through the rider's full range of motion.
  • High performance, Italian-made chamois with triple-density foam, rapid sweat absorption technology, anti-bacterial properties and Eschler top fabric.
  • Soft brushed Boxer Style elastic waistband.
  • Custom elastic leg hem holds the short in place.

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Light duty protective

Well made, fairly light material with reasonable breath ability, not as much coverage as some, no rear pads. Comfortable fit. Would be nice if D30 material, which works well it seems, was used more extensively. I would be happy to pay a bit more for this. Overall recommended for trail riding, perhaps not for dh.

Shorts Guide

Why do I need cycle specific shorts?

If you've ever spent a long time in the saddle you'll know how uncomfortable wearing casual shorts can be. They chafe, fit poorly and offer little mobility. Cycling shorts make all the difference.

Padded Chamois

Most cycling shorts come with a padded insert known as a chamois. This insert relieves pressure in your sensitive areas and stops numbness.

Anatomical Cut

Bike shorts are anatomically designed, often with a longer and higher cut at the back for when you’re in a riding position. This means you have a far more comfortable ride.

Lycra shorts will be snug with some stretch for aero performance and mobility. Casual baggies offer maximum freedom of movement for demanding trail riding.

Technical Fabrics

Cycle shorts use performance fabrics such as lycra and nylon.

Lycra is quick wicking to help transfer moisture away from the body.

Nylon is bombproof for durable riding.

These fabrics offer some stretch for added mobility and flat stitching is smooth against your skin to reduce chafing.

Added features such as Teflon coating or Ripstop improve durability.

What types of shorts are available?

Lycra shorts | Ideal for road cycling

Lycra shorts (and bib shorts) offer the best comfort in the saddle. You wear these directly next to your skin – no underwear.

Lycra is quick drying and worn close against the skin meaning the chamois stays in place as you ride.

Leg grippers also help to keep the shorts in place.

Bib shorts | Ideal for road cycling

Bib shorts are similar to standard waist high lycra shorts. However, you also get supporting shoulder braces.

As there is no waist line to dig in to your stomach they are more comfortable. Bibs are pulled taught ensuring the chamois stays where you want it.

Baggy shorts | Ideal for mountain biking

Baggy shorts are popular because of the more casual style which also keeps your modesty in check.

Baggy shorts are more durable with fabrics designed not to rip and tear from branches or debris.

Slip knee pads under these shorts for extra protection. Plenty of pockets are ideal for stashing tools and nutrition.

Not all baggy shorts come with a pad but you can easily fit a pair of padded undershorts underneath.

Undershorts | Ideal for mountain biking

Undershorts are thin liners with an added chamois pads. Slip these under baggy or casual shorts extra comfort and protection in the saddle.
