Could 7mesh’s Glidepath Short be the perfect all-round overshort for mountain biking: light, durable, and comfortable? Mountain Biking UK seems to think so, eulogising in a recent review that the Glidepath “nailed it right out of the gate”.
Built from Soma 2-way stretch fabric to offer astounding durability and resistance to abrasion, the Glidepath offers a durable water repellant coating that quickly sheds moisture, but also dries incredibly quickly. Patterned and articulated for an unhindered pedaling stroke, the 7mesh’s Glidepath is nevertheless compatible with most downhill knee pads.
At the front, dual hand pockets stow quick access items, while two zipped side utility pockets protect the essentials. Handily, the pockets are angled from back to front, allowing you to carry items, without affecting the pedal stroke. Genius! Low profile built-in waist adjusters and loops for riders who prefer a belt complete the short.
