Fly's Radium Shorts are comprised of the same fabric as their Lite Hydrogen MX Pant, with spandex stretch panels added for a full range of motion. The Radium includes laser cut holes for ventilation, and a full mesh liner. Bonded pockets keep your belongings safe, and Fly's patented 2-D buckle system, lets you dial in the fit. Reflective logos keep you seen at night, and the clean, modern look features sublimated graphics that won't fade.
Durable 600D rear panels offer extra layers of protection
Laser cut vent holes provide excellent air circulation
Silicon print inner waist keeps fit secure, so the shorts don't shift during rides

Awesome waist adjuster that lets be snug it up for when I need them to stay in place for a long XC ride or looser for the after ride chill session when you want a more relaxed fit. Sizing is right on. Length is top of the knee and the material that rubs on you knee while pedaling is silky smooth. All the gripper stuff works really well too. 2 front sipper pockets deep enough for my Pixel XL.
I bought these shorts as part of a new red and black kit to match the colors of my new bike. Of what there was available in that color scheme, these looked the most promising to me.
I'll start by saying that the material is a little on the heavier side. I would've liked to have known after reading the product description here on Jenson USA that these shorts are made for Downhill and All-Mountain, which is why they're as heavy as they are.
That said, Fly have done an excellent job at making these surprisingly breathable, despite the heavier materials used to make them. I never find myself getting hotter than I would with other shorts. It's also comforting to know that these aren't likely to rip very easily. It'd take a serious impact to rip them, and at that point, I'd be more concerned about the inevitable injuries I'd have sustained in the crash.
I bought a size 32 because that's the size of my other pairs of shorts, and the ingenious design of the adjustable buckle system on these made it possible for me to tighten them down enough to fit my size 28 waist. The reason I need a 32 is so that they're long enough.
All in all, I'm very pleased with these shorts. If you're considering ordering them, I don't think you'll be displeased!
I got these on sale after picking up another pair of Fly Racing shorts and some of their shirts. I actually got them in black, I'm 5'11" 185 lbs and the size 36 fit perfectly. These are a little more heavy duty than the Maverick shorts I got, which means they will probably last longer if you find yourself sliding in gravel on a descent.
