It's here, the super soft, breathable yet
waterproof biking shorts. You wouldn't
know it's waterproof if we didn't tell you,
the inside backer and stretchy fabric
make it super comfortable. The fit of the
shorts is inspired by the original fjørå
flex1, but the fabric is updated and the
seams are smoothly taped. The fabric is
still very breathable with great venting
options on the side, making this product
perfect for the muddy days on the tracks.
dri™3 is a 3-layer, ultra-thin, stretchy, non-porous, hydrophilic membrane that provides high levels of waterproofness and breathability.
Waterproof: 20,000 mm *
Breathability: Very Good, min. 20,000 **

Washing your GORE-TEX® and dri products will prolong the life of the product. This is how you should wash GORE-TEX® and dri products:
Remember to close all zippers and Velcro. The garment should be washed at 40 degrees, with a mild detergent and no softening or rinsing agents. Do not use bleach. Softeners, rinsing agents and bleaches can damage the fabric’s water-resistant properties (not the membrane/waterproofing) and the color of the fabric. Rinse the garment twice, if possible. Use water repellent spray on the outside of the garment after washing for optimal water-resistance (this has nothing to do with the waterproof quality of the garment, but makes it easier for water to roll off the outer fabric). Dry the garment on a low setting in the dryer, if you like, or iron it at a low temperature. Warmth helps to reactivate the waterproofing. The garment must be dry before washing and before being put away.

First choice for wet daysPerfect fit and length, very breathable and still fully waterproff. Used for lond riding under heavy rain in the alps to do all mountain / enduro tour. Also used when there is lot of wind in sunny days, perfect wind protection and breathable as normal pants.

Not up to British winter ridingI purchased these shorts last Autumn on the back of using Norrona ski kit (love it). I wanted something water resistant and tough to get me through the winter and these seemed to fit the bill. They fit really well and appear to be very well manufactured. However, after using on a weekly basis through the winter the seat of the shorts appears to be wearing thin and even wearing through on a seam. These would benefit from reinforcement in the seat area to prevent abrasion from mud etc that gets on the seat from wearing them out too quickly.

overall a good piece of kitI've used these about 4 times so far and I'm happy with the features, craftsmanship and functionality. The only problem I have encountered is that the material rubs my knee on every pedal stroke, which sometimes results in an allergic skin reaction with hives and itching. not sure if anyone else has experienced this.

Stylish mountain biking shortsI bought these for a trip to the French alps last year and now they are my favourite shorts. I have worn them in the Highlands of Scotland to the Valleys of Wales. They have a superb slim fit and feel comfortable on and off the bike. The style 3/4 length and works quite well with knee pads. I love the air vents on the sides, you can wear these summer or winter. These are one of the very few 'true' waterproof shorts I have had. To top it all off, they look cool and stylish and are a perfect match to the rest of my Norrona kit.

nice fitit is nice fit and good look,but knee part can be more loose
Is it possible to order this shorts in L size? Actually I have ordered M size from the polish distributor and they feel a bit to skinny. I'd like to try a bigger size. In your web shop L size is not available at the moment.

We are unfortunately sold out of this product in Large and will not get it in again before april. But we have 1 left in Blue in L, so if you are fast you will be able to grab that one. Nice to see that you embrace our waterproof biking shorts, they are great.
