|The Gravity shorts are quite simple in their design, but the thoughtfulness put into the material and construction makes them some of the most comfortable and best fitting shorts I have ever worn riding. They fall into that perfect all-round place between being stretchy and having a barely there feel. The inside finish of the short is super soft, while the outside feels like it's going to stand up to a scuff. I didn't have any major crashes while wearing these shorts, but I did have a few scuffles and after five months of use I'm still yet to get a nick or scratch on them. What I really liked about these shorts is that I could wear them both for long days in the trail riding saddle, and for more DH oriented days in the bike park. The one front pocket was totally fine for a phone or a snack and the smaller back pocket was perfect to carrying smaller items like a key or debit card for rides that warranted carrying as little as possible.|
I decided to size up on the jersey so I could easily pop elbow pads on for heavier duty riding days, and even with the added bulk of the pads and the larger size of the cut I still felt as though I was wearing a flattering garment. I found the breathability quite good on this jersey; on really hot days there was decent circulation through the material to help keep me cool and the material dried off pretty quickly when things got a sweaty. The Downhill jersey and shorts come in a fun color palette and print offering something that definitely looks a little different to what's currently available on the market. After having the Downhill shorts and jersey for some months now along with some of the other DHarCO pieces, I can honestly say that these are uber-comfortable, and in my opinion, good looking kits that more often than not I am opting to reach for when going for a ride. If you're after riding gear that's neatly tailored and that you can feel good in both on and off the bike, a kit from DHarCo is well worth a look. - Rachelle Frazer.
