The Forcefield Contakt Shorts are a specifically designed 8 panel riding short that features both CE approved armour and a 3D Coolmax® Silver anti-bacterial chamois pad for maximum protection and comfort.

Fitted with the revolutionary new FLHex Armour from the Nitrex Evo® family the removable fully CE approved armour is just 9mm and boasts incredible multi directional flexibility and a super malleable compound which allows the armour to contour around the riders shape and flow with the movement of the body resulting in the most dynamic and comfortable armoured riding shorts available today.

The silky soft integrated 3D CoolMax® Silver anti-bacterial chamois pad is fitted for both comfort and hygiene in the saddle. The seamless construction and 4–way stretch give unparalleled comfort whilst the Silver based bacteriostatic additive manages moisture and neutralizes odour causing bacteria.

Designed to be so comfortable you will forget you are wearing them, the Contakt Shorts are ideal whether you are riding all day in the wilderness going for a fast blast around your local trail centre or a tackling a short intense DH race.

The Contakt Shorts offer the ultimate in protection, comfort and performance.
