When your ride takes you well beyond the territory of smooth banked berms and rollers, you need a short that won't waiver at the first sign of adverse conditions, rock walls, greasy roots, and boulder fields. Fox Racing's Defend Kevlar Shorts are a game changer when durability is a must, packing in a blend of breathable polyester panels with Kevlar panels designed to hold up to the most demanding conditions. The shorts are built with the same base as the popular Defend short, including the light and stretchy body that packs in laser-cut vents, and thoughtfully placed seams that reduce irritation on long rides, but ads in a hit of Kevlar on the thigh panels that protect you against low-hanging branches, and scuffles with scrub oak when you cook it a little too quickly into a banked berm and end up wayside in the woods. While most Kevlar on the market is a bit unforgiving in the stretch department, Fox opts to employ Kevlar Polystretch material that offers more give, so it won't restrict you when you have to hammer on the pedals, or get way behind the saddle on a steep descent.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
