Raise a ruckus.

Troy Lee Designs brings the same bulletproof construction to garments as it does to its beefy helmets and padding. The Men’s Ruckus Short is perfect for enduro, downhill, and even cross-country rough riders who require a short that can keep up. The shell is made from a lightweight, two-way stretch polyester, with a large stretch panel at the back to provide excellent movement and a comfortable fit. The shorts also have a fully adjustable waist.

The Ruckus features thigh vents via hidden inseam zippers to keep you cool and well-ventilated on hot days. Also, the Ruckus’ pedal-friendly pocket design ensures that you’ll be able to turn cranks without your essentials bouncing around or jabbing you. And to help prevent discomfort on long, demanding rides, Troy Lee Designs included a removable liner with chamois.

  • Lightweight, two-way stretch polyester shell with large stretch panel in back
  • Full waist / hip height adjustment via bonded rubber adjusters
  • Thigh vents via hidden inseam zippers
  • Pedal-friendly pocket design
  • Removable liner with chamois

Great shorts but...

I think these shorts would be great overall and probably function awesome. But the blue pair I didn't realize was actually like a subtle blue/black pattern which I didn't like. Fit was good but for the price I ended up returning for a Zion Ether.

Light weight

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

The Ruckus is a nice light weight biking short. They seem to fit a little tight for biking shorts. With knee pads on they feel restricting thru the legs. I do like that it has lots of pockets. The liner in the shorts do fit a little funky because of the padding for the seat. but one on the bike its great. I would have gone up in size if there was more room in the legs.

Awesome shorts, but run large!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

These shorts are exactly what I'm looking for. Excellent materials, great length, top notch liner with chamois, and well designed pocket layout. They do, however, run EXTREMELY large, contrary to what was said in the previous review. I wear 34 in ALL pants, and my waist measures an exact 36.0 inches. I purchased the 36, and they are way too big! I measured the inside waistband with a tape and they are 38.5 inches for size 36.

Light Weight Shorts

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

The design of the shorts is way better than last year's Ruckus but the material quality and thickness is def less. The liner is pretty good but also comes with butt-pads (a boon for some, an annoyance for others). These are good shorts if you need something slightly more protective than XC shorts but don't expect these guys to be protective if you eat it in enduro or DH.

Also TLD runs small.. Hella small... I wear a 34 with just about everybody else and have to get 38s with TLD.

coming apart after a few rides

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I was really excited about these mtb shorts until the seams started to come apart after a few rides.

Seems started to split in the crotch area, and right now I have backcountry telling me to contact TLD directly and TLD telling me to contact the dealer!

Fortunately, after talking to BC warranty department they will take care of me! Disappointed with durability of this short, not sure if this was a one off or bigger quality problem! Will try something else next!

Camo that you can see!

These are some of the best fitting bike shorts I've ever worn love the pockets and functionality of them, my only complaint is that the liner has already ripped on me and I've only been riding in these for a week other than that I love these shorts!
