The Fox brand is well known to all mountain bikers the world over. Fox Racing is best known for their suspension products while Fox Head produces apparel and protective gear, from helmets to gloves. These two companies separated long ago, but both went on to be very successful in their respective fields.
The Ranger short is a widely available mountain bike specific short that is very well disguised as a casual short. It is made from a lightweight, breathable, two-way stretch material and has a fully separating liner short. The Ranger ranked middle of the road in most of our tests, with the exception being in the style department where it excels, especially if you are looking for a short that doesn't look like a bike short. It is inexpensive compared to most of the others we tested. Our major complaint is the lack of zippered pockets and the uncomfortable silicone leg grippers on the liner short.
