Ace In the Hole

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

The Troy Lee Designs Ace Short - Men's is my favorite MTB short thus far. My favorite feature is the chamois liner. It is super comfortable and breathable, for those long, hot epics...The short itself doubles as a casual short and or post ride swim trunks...which is a big deal to me...They have velcro adjustments on each side of the waist for a snug and belt free fit tun-ability, and there are several great pockets and vents...If you are looking for a higher quality short with removable liner that will last many, many miles, this is the one.
