Pinkbike Reviews Flylow MTB Kits

Tested reviews of the Eleanor Short, Aster Shirt, Deckard Short, and Garrett Shirt

We could spend days telling you about the technical fabrics and purpose-built designs of our summer trail collection. But we're also a little biased. So don't just take our word for it. Thanks to Pinkbike, you can read in-depth reviews from testers out on the trail.

Pinkbike reviewed (scroll down a bit in the story) our women's Eleanor Short, saying it "was designed with mountain biking in mind but will pull duty in multiple activities. It has enough stretch to accommodate single track ninja moves without binding, and room for snacks in the hip pockets. There’s also a pocket on the lower thigh for your phone, internal waist adjusters, and belt loops for customizing your fit."

The best part, according to tester Nikki Rohan? "For $90, I'd put these shorts as the best bang for your buck. It's hard to find a well-designed, relaxed fit short for this price and these appear to check all the boxes.

The Garrett Shirt and Deckard Short Also Received Reviews

Pinkbike also reviewed (scroll about halfway down the story) our men's Garrett Shirt and Deckard Short. "If you are looking for a pair of shorts with minimal bike nerd styling that breathe well, are reasonably lightweight, and with a more downhill oriented fit, these should be at the top of your list," writes reviewer Pierce Martin. About the Garrett Shirt, he wrote, "The breathability of the jersey was sublime and the material is almost mesh-like. Especially in the neck and along the sides—you can really feel the air flowing when up to speed."

Check out our full trail collection for men and women.
