Why we made this?
The Invader shorts were a more trail oriented option to our out-dated, baggy, freeride-specific, now discontinued Destroyer(DS3) short. The Invader 3 evolved into a full on enduro race short with 5 zipped pockets to help spread out supplies you'd normally have to stuff in a pack of some sort. The slimmer fit and 5-pocket layout was conceived by a prominent Canadian EWS racer who had a brief stint riding for NF before getting pulled up to a full factory ride, where he continues to progress and climb the ranks.

What does team rider Matt Bolton think?
"The Invader 3 is perfect for big pedals or bike park days. The 5 pockets give you tons for storage for snacks, tools, phone, and lift pass. The elastic waist is super comfortable and you don't have to worry about buttons digging in. The fabric is durable, and has the perfect amount of stretch. The DWR coating helps keep you dry and looking good."
