Nice Fit & Weight

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

This one seems to have the right blend of fabrics and fit. Lightweight outer drys well too.

Comfortable liner that breaths very good. You cant go wrong and like another post-er said, you may end up with a second pair. Love these.


I dig these shorts!

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

The shorts are lightweight, wick away moisture very efficiently, are very comfortable with good style and very durable. They have become my go to warm weather shorts. If I had to ding anything, it would be the chamois, it's a little too lightweight and could stand to be a little more firm\dense (I gave em five star anyway). Would I buy another pair, hell yes. As a matter of fact, I have another pair in the cart right now ;-)

Great pair of shorts

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Royal classified these shorts as enduro/trail, but I'm mostly a cross country rider and they're still awesome. There's super thin, yet very durable and they breath well. The pockets can hold two spare tubes, tire levers, a small pump, a phone and some food with no problem at all. My only complaint might be that the pad isn't very thick, and may not provide enough padding for someone used to a heavy duty chamois as I was, but it was easy to get used to and now I'll happily ride with either.


These shorts are the tits!

    I'm a mountain biker. If you are looking for durable, great at wicking, light biking shorts. These are the ones! They are great from cross country to free riding. A nice loose fit so fitting knee guards isn't an issue. Cargo pockets for cash, an i.d., or a gel. An mp3 pocket with a stitched hole for the head phone cord. Velcro belt to adjust comfort at the waist. Some time i wear them just to lounge around the house or to go out. These shorts are the tits! Hands down.


    Like the others, they are da bomb!

    • Gender:Male
    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I am an intermediate level mountain biker who proudly owns '08 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Pro Carbon.

    Before this short I already own 4 more shorts from different manufacturers(Oakley, Zoic, Endura, and Fox). Endura's zipper fell off after few rides. Fox short is very tight fitting and quality stinks.

    I never heard of Royal Racing but I decided to give it a try since it was on sale and it has excellent reviews.

    This is the absolute best mountain bike short I have ever worn! I love the side velcro waist to fine tune the fitting. The cut is perfect right above the knee(I am 5'11"). It is very comfortable and light. I can wear this thing all day! I loved it so much that I bought 2 more pairs(One for my my father in law).

    Love it love it love it!


    First and only riding pants

      First and foremost, these shorts came in size 30 which is a deal maker for me. They are really comfortable and dont hang too long. But theyre long enough to come over knee pads if you wear them. The chamois is great too. Doesnt absorb any crotch stink. Which... ya know... is a good thing. The not absorb part that is.


      Will become your daily riding shorts

        Picked up a pair of these early in the season and they are now my go to shorts for riding. Super comfortable, lightweight, and the removable liner is more comfortable than others that I've tried. So good I picked up a second pair when they were not on-sale.


        Awesome Shorts

          I love these shorts. They are very comfortable and fit well. The removable liner is great because I definitely do not want them to be a permanent feature of these shorts. I use them primarily for the gym, so I have not used them for biking yet. The abundance of front pockets allows me to carry my MP3 player without sitting on it and my keys as well

          Rock the Matrix

          • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

          Royal makes some outstanding riding gear. This will now be my third pair of Matrix shorts the first pair lasted two years of abuse and a couple months ago I snagged a pair off Chainlove. The Matrix shorts have a very relaxed fit, but they are not so relaxed they caught on your saddle. Just the right amount of pockets, and keep cool and comfortable even on hot days.

          My only complaint is that the chamois is huge! I know it says it doesn't come with one, but it does. And it is way oversized.
