The Mountain Surf is a stretch woven short, so it's durable first and foremost. Designed the fabric light enough that it breathes like Neil Peart after a set of Red Barchetta. Bottom line the short works amazing for what it's intended for, which is riding bikes on amazing single track in the high country of Colorado to the flow of Brown County, Indiana. Is that not enough? Heck no. Club Ride makes clothing For the Ride and Everything After, so jump in the Deschutes River after your ride Phils, hang by the city pool with the kids, mow your lawn once this summer all in the Mtn Surf.
