Singletrack minded.

Short of screen-printed hoodies and outsourced race-wear, Yeti Cycles' left the mountain-bike clothing business to those who do it best. The problem was, 'their best' didn't fill the expectations of the passionate crew from Golden, Colorado. So, Yeti took the next logical step and enlisted the help of established apparel designers, resulting in the production of Yeti's first mountain-specific clothing line. And with pieces like the cross-country-dedicated Teller Shorts to fill those lofty expectations, we're sure that we'll be seeing plenty of Yeti on the trail this spring.

And, if the Teller shorts are anything to go by, Yeti's on the right track. These shorts feature an ultra-light stretch polyester composition, making them the optimal choice for summer XC riding. And with nothing added but the essentials, the Teller shorts promote high-speed, long-distance riding for the eternal minimalist. This is furthered by the material's focus on breathability and moisture management. So, you'll stay cool and dry throughout the day.

Adding to the breathability are inseam vent rivets, however, air flow isn't the only requirement for a quality pair of shorts. In fact, fit is of equal value. But, as we're sure that you know, mountain biking places specific requirements on designers. Aware of this, Yeti designed the Teller to be neither baggy or skinny. Instead, they exist somewhere in the middle. More importantly, though, pre-articulated panels were added in order to encourage a full freedom of movement. In addition to this, the seamless, gusseted crotch ensures miles of pedaling comfort. To secure this fit, Yeti incorporated its new Shok-N-Lok waist adjustment. This lets you quickly and easily adjust the waist band while riding for the perfect fit and feel.

The Tellers, like all Yeti shorts, are also compatible with the Italian chamois-holding Yeti Liner shorts. Additionally, the Tellers feature a key pocket, two hand pockets, and a hidden zip closure for storing all of your ride essentials.

The Yeti Cycles Teller Shorts are available in the colors Black and Grey and in five sizes from Small to XX-Large. Please note that Yeti bases its sizing from the waist, so a Small is size 30, Medium is size 32, Large is size 34, X-Large is size 36, and XX-Large is size 38.

Love these

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 10"
    Weight: 165 lbs
    Size Purchased: large

This is my second review of these. I've had 6 pairs & completely worn out 3 of them - they are awesome! I'm a 34 waist & the large fits perfectly (i tired med & was too small). The shorts are lightweight & likely wouldn't stand up to a ton of abuse but if you keep the wheels down you can't go wrong.

The older versions had two back pockets - now only one. I'd prefer two but can live with it. Have heard people knock them for being too light - I think that is a strength.

Excellent short

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 2"
    Weight: 190 lbs

I ordered a L and XL. L ended up fitting best. I wear a 34 jean size, but actual measurement if waist is 36. Waist of these shorts does fit snug, so if you are any bigger you'll need to size up. But, would rather have them a little tight than a little loose. Material is smooth and stretchy. Feels almost like a very thin soft shell, but is still breathable. Fit on legs is not too baggy, which I like.

Very nice, shoulda bought sooner!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 0"
    Weight: 185 lbs
    Size Purchased: 34/L

These feel awesome to ride in. I wear a 33-34 in most everything and the 34 are just right. They do have a bit of a tubular cut, but are still great to ride in.

I'm also an avid golfer, so I'm used to lighter and cool material. These move with you as you ride, I love that.

Love 'em!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great shorts! I just wish CC carried more colors. I'm a 34 waist and the Large fit perfectly. I like the zippered front pockets, and the rear has a velcro seal... helps keep your 20's where they need to be. They look stylish and function great as every day shorts. Very comfortable. Looking to pick up some more.

Great Short!

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

Have used on and off the dirt, great short and has become my "go-to". I got the XXL, and it is just there for my 38-40 waist. I wish it was a tad bigger in the waist, but it makes me want some more miles to fit in them a little better;-)

Dear Yeti...

Dear Yeti, Why in the world did you take the belt loops of these amazingly cool shorts. WHY???? These shorts can be used in any application including work shorts and now I have no belt. Still going to keep them but belt loops are a good thing not a bad thing even for mountain bike shorts. I own 4 pair and won't wear any else. Tuff as nails and super comfy.

I am a solid 34 and 36 fits perfect.

Not your average short

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

Do you feel like you wear your shorts out too quickly? Do your current shorts not lay right when you're peddling? Are you current shorts too hot and muggy? Then these shorts are for you!

They lay perfectly while peddling and don't bunch up like other pairs I've owned. They are incredibly light but tough! I've taken some spills on them, and shockingly my skin underneath has torn before the shorts.

I started with one own 4...

I'm a solid 32 waste and the 34 fit perfectly

Lightweight and tough

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are just about the perfect mountain biking short. The fabric is very lightweight and breathable yet feels tough enough to stand up well to a crash.
They also fit very well and never get hung up on the saddle when getting off the back for a steep descent.
The pockets are large and positioned so whatever you keep in them won't interfere with pedaling. At first I was surprised by the lack of cargo pockets but the shorts are better off without them.
The shorts are also subtle enough to be worn off the bike. I have worn them a couple of times at work and for general casual use.
I have a 30" waist and the M/32 fits perfectly.

Super comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

These shorts are awesome, and I find myself wearing them when I'm no where near my bike. I second the fact that you might want to get a size up from your usual.

Favorite shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have multiple pairs of riding shorts, and these are my go to shorts. I have had them for a while now and they work great. They have ample storage, cool in the heat, fit great. I would say the waist fits a little small.

Very nice!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These shorts are great! Very light but very sturdy while being extremely comfortable. The fit was a little tight but not enough to return. Would highly recommend!

Love these shorts.

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

I ended up buying 3 pair of these since I loved them so much. I wear them for Biking/Hiking/Working/Life.

The fabric is super light and remains pretty cool while riding. I've done several 5+ hours trail rides in them and I have to say I they are more comfortable than tights or bibs. For kicking around town they are the most comfortable short I have ever owned.

I'm 5'10 170 - 33-34" waist and the large fits perfect. These shorts are *not* lined.

Responded on

Just noticed this in the description: "Pockets: 2 hand, 1 key"
They actually have 2 Hand and 2 Back Pockets.

Great MTB shorts

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

These are the nicest mountain bike shorts I own. The construction is very solid, with lots of small nice touches like the drawstring pulls, Colorado flag on the belt loop, and of course the Yeti on the buttons. Length is just below the knee and the legs are nice and trim to keep them from catching the bike seat.

Great Shorts

These shorts are great. I good cross between short shorts and knickers. Perfect length, really well made, super comfortable and they look great. These are my go to shorts when I ride. Haven't worn anything else since I got them.
