Endura Humvee Shorts
"Unless you have a perfectly pert bum, or are fast enough to justify skintight Lycra, baggy riding shorts are a great choice for offroad riders," Chipps says. "They fitwell, keep your bum drier, have pockets for bits and bobs and don't get you stared at in the pub. Endura has been making baggies for years and the Humvees offer the best value for performance around."
