Showers Pass Continues Innovating to Protect Against ALL Elements

Monterey, CA- Portland, OR based apparel brand Showers Pass would like to introduce their DWR Cross Country Short to the European market, a latest addition to their popular mountain biking short line, and the first to be built with a DWR (durable water repellent) coated fabric.

Technical features meet versatile performance and customizable fit in this non-restrictive, tailored style short. An adjustable waistband and silicone grip strip allow the waist to stay in place on aggressive rides. The shorts feature a durable, brushed fabric on the rear; and a lighter, airier fabric on the front. With adjustable waist tabs and 4-way stretch construction, the DWR Cross Country Short provides the perfect fit on and off the bike.

“Our DWR Cross Country Short offers a solution to wet spring riding conditions, when comfort and staying dry in the saddle is paramount for enjoying the longer days on the bike. Our customers have been asking for a short that offered protection from the elements, and we are happy to have developed a comfortable and stylish solution for those braving the toughest conditions,” says Jeremy Rider, PR Director of Showers Pass. “The DWR Cross Country Short not only gives mountain bikers a solution for staying dry in wet weather, but also provides a versatile short for other outdoor activities on wet spring days.”
