Looking to charge hard in protected green bike lanes? Fixie to French-made Focus road bike, Shift takes the town with a remarkable cotton-polyester blend. Ready to own the local pub’s trivia night? Coast in with supreme confidence thanks to this pant (and selective binge TV watching). With a look that’s geared even for casual work environments, the pant’s stretch capability keeps even abundant quads contained without sacrificing mobility. Active Junky testers simply enjoyed the hand (the “feel” of the fabric) while applauding the 10oz weight for extended, wash-cycle durability. Club Ride calls the rear construction a NoCrackBack. Testers concur as the on-bike credibility of the brand’s been proven in over four years of team testing in the U.S. and South America. Pockets fit an off-bike look excepting the relatively stealth side-zippered leg compartment sized for an iPhone6-equivalent. The “relaxed fit” is trimmer and more athletic than the name suggests so order spot-on, size-wise. Next, spin through Club Ride’s flannel, western-inspired and performance tops to build a long-lasting combo. Or grab a Pokemon Go tee and roll.
