Dirt Baggies is a new mountain bike shell short with included bibshorts. Created by Tim Lane, a former design engineer for Felt Bicycles, Dirt Baggies first shipment just showed up in their warehouse last week and he’s open for business.
The lightweight (160g) baggy shell shorts are made of a very light nylon and does away with pockets or extra features that add weight. The black panels, visible on the tan shorts, are ballistic mesh, and the Rip Stop material throughout the rest is very breathable, too.
“My goal was to keep your legs as cool as if you were just wearing bib shorts alone,” said Lane. “The shells that come on most shorts are overbuilt for most purposes. You legs are you biggest muscles, so we want to keep them cool.”
