Aussie Grit - 2018 flint Women’s Bike Shorts

After we tested, reviewed and loved the Mens Aussie Grit Apparel shorts we were sent the Female version and as you can imagine after the Mens shorts we were extremely happy and looking forward to reviewing these!

Initial thoughts were that the shorts looked more for road cycling than mountain biking however when cycling down the routes we regularly do we instantly noticed a positive difference, due to the shorts being tight fitting it meant that the usual branches, thorns and other bushes and trees weren’t able to catch and pull the shorts.

Like the Mens shorts they have a tight fit stretch waistband which gives extra nice fit, comfort and confidence that the shorts will stay exactly were you want them to which on fast, bumpy trails is very important.

As the shorts are quite tight fit and don’t have the over shorts like the Mens I was quite sceptical that the bum pad won’t noticeable and therefore not great on the eye if not on the bike however like most things with Aussie Grit I pleasantly surprised as even if you know the padding is there you still struggle to see it while there is a good amount to keep things nice and padded.

Overall they have a great look, fit and feel to them! Yet another quality and very well thought out product from the Aussie Grit Apparel team. If the rest of the Flint line is anywhere as good as the two items we’ve reviewed we will be looking at an extremely good mountain bike kit that ticks every box whether it be for look, features and comfort.

Finally like the Mens shorts there is a very cleverly placed zip pocket for your phone if you need to take it on the ride with you that keeps it nice and tight as to stop any annoying movement and the pocket placed so that your phone doesn’t keep jumping and slapping back down on your leg.
