Streamlined Mountain Performance.
The Assos Men's Trail Cargo Shorts take the concept of adaptable, all-mountain shorts to a new realm, made possible by streamlined tailoring and progressive materials. They've been developed with a waistband that smoothly holds the shorts in place, a cut that's trim around the crotch to avoid saddle snag, a length that's ideal with or without pads, and a versatile new fabric that flexes with each pedal stroke.
Rethinking MTB Shorts.
By poring over other "baggies," ASSOS saw how their panels always bunch in odd places and the addition of fasteners, webbing, and zippers all contribute to unnecessary weight and pinching during pedaling. ASSOS' minimal approach uses an adaptable textile for the primary panels, one that's equal parts durable and lightweight.
More specifically, it's a bi-stretch woven that's extremely consistent in terms of composition, translating to a fast-drying, comfortable material that holds up on the trail.
With half of the shorts' formula sorted, ASSOS created a trim top block, starting with the highly elastic waist panel for a smooth, comfortable wrap on the waist, free of any unnecessary pressure. Moving down from there, they've pulled the upper legs' circumference in on either side of the crotch to ensure your saddle can float between your legs, free of any material hang-ups.
The lower portion of the legs are relaxed and given a 12in inseam to be ideal with or without pads.
We recommend pairing these with the ASSOS Trail Liner Shorts for all-mountain coverage, unrestricted comfort, and lasting support.
Type.OF11: A high-density bi-stretch woven, 160g/m2 UPF50+, highly abrasion-resistant, lightweight, fast-drying, with DWR treatment to protect from rain and mud.
AZPtech (abdomZeroPressure): A new waist construction developed with a soft, highly elastic material to improve the comfort and hold at the waist, minus any pressure or pinching.
Two center-thigh zippered slash pockets for small carry items.
trailFit: Follows the body's natural motions in, and out, of the saddle — trim, but never restrictive. A comfortable, versatile fit that's perfect for an array of off-road riding applications, whether that's one hour or all day.
At 12in (31cm) in size medium, the inseam length is perfect with or without pads.

My New Favorite
Likes: Zippered pockets, Air Flow for Cooling, Colorfast fabric, Length (not too long), Fabric/Material quality. These shorts are more tapered loose fit than most other shorts. If you want total baggy these are not the ones. These shorts impress and are exactly the right shorts when outside temperatures soar. These shorts may be higher in price, but in the long run they will be the most cost effective. My other shorts were much hotter and bleached out in the sun so they were brown/black rather than black.
