POC Essential XC Shorts

The Essential XC Shorts are the perfect complement to an XC ride, and give a rider the option of wearing shorts on their own or in combination with lycra shorts, such as over the Essential XC Air VPDs Bib Shorts (sold separately). The shorts have a bike specific shape and design ensuring they are optimised for a rider’s movements on an XC ride. Constructed from a very lightweight stretch fabric which is also water repellent, the shorts provide a high level of performance and protection from the weather. Smaller items can be stored safely and securely in side pockets, which are sealed with YKK Vislon zips and located at the side to avoid any interference with pedaling. Velcro straps at the waist ensure you can make precise, secure and easy size adjustment. To further enhance the fit and performance the shorts also feature a double fastening, velcro and snap buttons, system at the front.


  • Lightweight shorts constructed with stretch fabric for optimal movement
  • Fabric is water repellent to keep the weather away
  • Two pockets with YKK Vislon zips for essential items, located on the side for improved pedaling
