Ideal for mountain bike shorts or pants are the 2012 661 Elite and Evo Bomber Shorts. To effectively protect the rider from impact, the shorts have a closed-cell foam strategically placed in the thigh and the hip areas as well as nylon and EVA foam-laminated tail-bone pads.
Featuring a new vented four-way stretch flexible body and built-in chamois, the Elite Bomber padded undershorts are very comfortable, flexible and lightweight. Hip protection is enhanced by its embossed hard foam. Also, slipping off is not a problem because the shorts are not slippery.
Protection from impact is also provided by the Evo Bomber race and riding undershorts thanks to its hi-tech D30 material in garment’s hips and tailbone areas. During impacts, the pads are kept in place by the Lycra shorts while the quad area is protected by the lightweight EVA foam.
