Sombrio is back for round two of their most popular shorts with the V'Al 2 Short. The V'Al 2 features a similar cut to its predecessor, but with added stretch for more comfort when you've got to move around on the saddle and shift from punchy climbs to behind the seat descents. Along with the revised fabric, you'll find they also pack in more pocket space, with two zippered hand, and one zippered thigh pocket that ads in a key cord to keep valuables secure when you're letting loose on the dirt. The seams are reinforced in the most critical areas with bar tack stitching to hold up against abrasion, and a gusseted crotch adds a little more freedom of movement to the cut. To secure your fit in place Sombrio implements its internal waistband retention system that features a slim buckle in front for closure.
