    Do you throw your Endura pants in a dryer?

    So I'm really loving my Endura Singletrack II pants but the directions and contacting Endura say that they shouldn't be thrown in a dryer and should be air dried. I also think they want you to hand wash it.

    I like to wash my gear after every ride. I'm using the washer on the Delicate setting with cold water. Then I throw them in the dryer on the Delicate setting. I've tried air dry but that takes 4 cycles and it's still damp.

    I'm wondering if anyone else went agains the directions and has done the same with their pants/shorts? Has the gear latested for a while for you or have you noticed some issues with elastics/material?

    Thanks!

    I too wash my gear after every ride...

    However, you've just got to air dry em. I hang dry ALL of my garments. Dryers destroy sh**.

    I wash all of my jerseys, riding shorts, tights, chamois, everything on delicate and hang dry it. I'll put a hanger up in the ceiling vents of my house where the heater blows out warm air, and by morning they're completely dry.

    You spend a lot of money on gear, why destroy it ?

    Some of my garments are 2-5 years old, and still look absolutely brand new.
    Rigs:
    Specialized Rockhopper HT
    Trek 6500 HT
    Trek 3700 Disc HT (The son's)

    Roll the wet pants in a towel, remove and hang to air dry. If they will not dry soon enough for your next ride, get a second pair.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
