Mountain Biking UK mag have run a group test of mtb shorts in this month’s issue – and awarded Mavic’s Red Rock baggies (£75) the ‘best value’ crown.

MBUK said both the shorts’ shell and liner were ‘exceptional’, with the lightweight outer making light work of warm summer riding.

The lightweight approach is complemented by the liner, which has a modesty-protecting close weave for the old nether regions and an airy, highly breathable mesh fabric on the legs.
