Trying to squeeze in a quick spin along the trails before that family BBQ you promised you'd be at is more doable than ever with Giro's all-new Truant Shorts. The brand has been flexing its casual muscles recently by introducing functional cycling and mountain bike clothing that appears polished off-trail, giving riders even more freedom to get their miles in whenever possible. The Truant manages to be at ease on singletrack and off it, and the durable DWR-coated nylon and spandex weave that Giro uses to construct the shorts leaves them plenty capable to handle a few run-ins with branches along tight and twisty sections of hardpack. Giro constructs the Truant with a 14in inseam and rear stretch panel, so they won't leave your legs vulnerable as you pedal but still move with you when you get out of the saddle to pop over a crux. Two hand pockets as well as one zippered security pocket provide plenty of space to store ride essentials or a phone, so you can make sure you get your adrenaline fix and still get to that BBQ on time.

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.
