The Zenith short is a great all-rounder to allow riders to be prepared for anything the trail has to throw at them. Madison have specified a DWR coated fabric to keep some of the trail spray at bay while 4-way stretch crotch and lumbar panels allow for easy maneuverability. Double and triple needle stitching in all the right areas and a simple pop stud faster ensure a bombproof construction. With two zippered hand pockets, two large zip cargo pockets, and a dedicated phone pocket there are plenty of secure stash spaces for the essentials. Subtle vent mesh helps to keep the rider cool on nicer days. 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.
