The Zenith short is a fully featured all season selection so you can be prepared for anything the trail has to throw at you. Madison have specified a 3-layer waterproof rear panel that extends from waist to knee and around the inner thigh to ensure the worst trail spray is kept out. The waterproof fabric is optimally zoned with a DWR coated stretchy fabric used on the front panels instead for added maneuverability while the knees are faced with an added ripstop fabric to avoid abrasion. Double and triple needle stitching in all the right areas and a simple pop stud faster adds to the bombproof construction. Two-way zips on the thighs revel ventilation mesh to keep the rider cool on nicer days. With two zippered hand pockets and a dedicated phone pocket offering a safe space for the essentials while staying away from the riding experience. The fit can be dialed in easily with hook and loop straps on the waist to hold the shorts firmly in place, the silicone gripper on the inside waist panel prevent them sliding around.
