Aussie Grit - 2018 flint Men’s Bike Shorts

When I initially saw this shorts I immediately saw the price tag and usually would have been put off however the features these shorts offered seemed to good to be true:


Functional Benefits

From the above features the shorts sounded like the perfect mountain biking shorts and on top of this they looked great, I was sold on them!

When I received them I was very relieved and happy as they are exactly how described.

They put everything a mountain biker wants into one pair of shorts, well made, look great, fit great, inner short and for me the best part which is the chamois.
You don’t notice the chamois when stood up or not on the bike but when on the bike it does the job perfectly for those long or bumpy rides!

Before purchasing the shorts I saw this comment and it couldn’t have been more true “This performance off road riding short is perfect for long rides – be that wet, muddy trails or dry and dusty tracks”.
