Time to get your legs out gents!

What Mountain Bike have done a round-up of summer riding kit in this month’s issue, and it’s all about the shorts.

Mavic’s Crossmax shorts (£85) bag a four-star herogram. ‘Some shorts just feel right – and these do,’ say the testers. We’ve got a huge range of Mavic summer kit – for road and MTB – in the shop.

We also stock the Altura Summit shorts which share a 4-star What MTB gong with the Crossmax kit. Priced at £60 they come with a liner. ‘Something we would expect to be an afterthought at that price,’ say the mag. They’re available in red as well as the fetching neon yellow.

And Race Face fare even better (an extra half a star!) with their Indy shorts. Say What MTB: ‘A great combination of fit and fabric ensures they won’t let you down. At £57 they’re great value.’
