Just for you, hotshot.

Troy Lee designed the Ace Shorts to provide the freedom of baggies, while maintaining a functional, low-profile shape. After all, just because Lycra doesn't cut it, it doesn't mean that you won't appreciate well-cut shorts that are slim enough to avoid catching on your saddle. The fact that they're the shorts of choice for so many of the world's best should only solidify the obvious fact that the Ace Shorts won't hold you back.

The main body of the Ace is made with four-way stretch, lightweight breathable polyester, so they move with you through your pedal stroke, not to mention those dicey moments that require a little extra body English. A large stretch panel at the back gives you even more freedom of movement. The fabric wicks moisture away from your skin, keeping you dry. The low-profile pockets are located on the sides of the legs so you won't feel the contents while you pedal. At the waist there are adjustment tabs that provide a perfect custom fit.

Welded intake and exit vents at the crotch keep air flowing, and additional thigh-and crotch-ventilation zippers are standing by to increase the airflow at a moment's notice. The included mesh liner short has a pressure-relieving chamois, which pulls moisture away from your skin to keep you chafe-free.

  • Breathable four-way stretch polyester
  • Close to body performance fit
  • Large stretch panel on the back
  • Welded intake and exit vents at the crotch
  • Thigh- and crotch-ventilation zippers
  • Laser cut side stash pockets
  • Premium removable chamois

needs more storage

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

These shorts are very comfortable. The stretch material is great. The crummy part is there are only 2 pockets. The back one will not unzip and it's too small to put anything into anyway. The side pocket on the hip is too small for my phone. A pair I bought about 2 years had 2 pockets in the front with plenty of space for my phone and keys.

  • Fit: Runs small
