Taking comfort to new heights.

Mavic's Stratos H20 Shorts are an excellent representation of what's possible when top-tier materials, chamois compatibility, and fit come together to address the needs of mountain bikers. And now that the H2O Shorts add Mavic's Rain Tech ST and Dura Rain panels, those in routinely wet climates finally get to be a part of the action.

Mavic's Stratos H20 shorts build on its standard models with the inclusion of Mavic's Trail Tech Plus fabrics. With these materials in tow, the shorts create the right blend of abrasion-resistance, stretch, and water-resistance. In fact, the built in stretch compliments the Stratos' semi-baggy cut in order to allow a total freedom of movement. So, by combining a semi-loose fit with the same stretch of an all-mountain baggy, Mavic has ensured that you'll avoid snagging a saddle or having the fabric bunch on you while pedaling.

Also preventing short migration are wide hook-and-loop closures located at each hip. Additionally, this adjustment system allows you to fine tune the fit at the waist. For storage, there are bonded zippers over the pockets on each thigh, and the pockets are just big enough for essentials like keys, phone, and a few gels. And in terms of ventilation, Laser cut Micro Vents at the hips aid in both moisture management and in keeping the ride from getting too hot and sweaty.

And while these are shell shorts, they're also able to be teamed up with Mavic's Stratos liner for added comfort and support in the form a chamois — available separately.

The Mavic Stratos H2O Shorts are available in the color Black and in four sizes from Small to X-Large.

must-have for a serious all-season rider

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Height: 6' 0"
    Weight: 155 lbs
    Size Purchased: Small

Strong material, yet flexible in the right places, great fit for a biking position (doesn't ride up or pull down),couple pockets, elastic waistband, some reflective features, waterproof, breathable - what else can you wish for? Mavic really thought this through. A friend of mine turned my attention to these and I dropped a bunch of money I would have never thought to have spent on a piece of biking clothing. However, having your butt dry while riding in mud, creeks, rain, etc. is soooo worth it. You can also layer it with some warmer knickers or tights for the colder days or just use under shorts (or underwear without the chamois as I do ;-) when the weather gets warmer.
A bunch of guys I ride with here in the Seattle area all have these and we always joke we're the "Team Mavic."
The only unfortunate thing is that Mavic seemed to have improved one thing in the newer version - they added velcro tabs in the waist area for better adjustment... but they have used a 2-layer material. The shorts on this page were made with a 3-layer fabric and it's much tougher than the newer version.
Also, these run big - I normally wear a medium and got a small for these and they're snug but fit much better than the mediums (I'm 6' tall and rather skinny - 155 lbs naked).

Mavic h20 shorts

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Sick bad weather riding shorts. They fit long which is nice for coverage.

The waistband is nice but i had beltloops added as i like wearing a belt with my shorts.

They are perfect for spring, fall and winter riding. They also dont hinder the use of knee pads.

What is the inseam measurement for these...

What is the inseam measurement for these shorts in L or XL?
