The Floe shorts are designed for durability, comfort, practicality, with a flattering fit both on and off the saddle.
The Floe shorts are made with a durable, breathable, wind resistant and wicking fabric. They use 12% stretchy spandex for full freedom of movement. And the PFC-free DWR coating provides protection against the rain. Or the splashback from the puddles.
The mountain biking shorts have thigh zips with mesh inserts, offering you a little more room for pads should you need it. They also give you extra ventilation when you’re working hard. Our Design Team have avoided seams in high-wear areas, with thoughtful panelling, making the Floe shorts even more durable. The Floe shorts have an adjustable waistband to avoid gaping, as well as two heavy duty snaps to give a secure closure.
The deep stash pockets are practical for hillside snacks - or just for your wallet and keys when you’re grabbing a pint afterwards! The discrete zipped pocket is perfect for keeping valuables and essentials safe.

How It Is Made
This garment uses a completely PFC-free DWR treatment. PFCs are potentially harmful and have been found to build up in the environment. We don't like the sound of that and we are one of the first outdoor brands in the world to completely eliminate them from our range.

Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.
We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
