Do you want to look great? Do you maybe want to rock your kneepads, maybe not? Do you want lightweight, breathable shorts a perfectly placed and secure zipper pocket? We thought so! The Yeti Cycles Avery checks all your boxes and is our Best Buy for Style. While it runs a bit small and is less stretchy and forgiving than some options, all of our testers admired the look of these shorts as well as the details that went into making it awesome on the trail. With two of our favorite shorts coming from Yeti Cycles, we can only conclude that folks who make mountain bikes get what it takes to make a great pair of mountain bike shorts.
The Avery shorts offer a light feel, breathability, and moderate protection, If you want similar function in a package that's nearly as cute a bit more burly, check out the Yeti Norrie.
