Vector Tech Short

If high speeds and gnarly trails are your forte, it's worth owning a pair of liner shorts that provide you with some impact protection if things don't go as planned. The Alpinestars Vector Tech Short is a great option, because not only do they provide mountain bikers with a comfortable chamois for long days in the saddle, but they protect your hips, thighs, and tailbone in the event of a crash. The stretch mesh construction ensures superb moisture wicking and breathability, while the compressive fit helps support your muscles and reduce fatigue during big days in the mountains. An elastic waistband ensures a comfortable fit, while silicone print on the inside of the thighs keep the shorts in place on rough, bumpy trails.

  • Liner shorts offering all-day comfort and crash protection
  • Impact-absorbing EVA foam on thighs, hips, and tailbone
  • Noosfera multi-density chamois cushions your sit bones
  • Ventilated mesh construction provides comfort and breathability
  • Compressive fit supports muscles during long days in the saddle
  • Elastic waist and silicone printing on thigh ensure a stay-put fit

    Great shorts!

    I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Originally purchased a medium, way to tight. Returned them for a 2xl. Fits great now. I have a 38 waist. I recommend going up a couple of sizes if you want a good fit. Overall, really happy with these shorts. I delt with Karen Lindsey in returns, she was so helpful and patient as we tried to find the right size shorts and shirt. I’ll definitely be ordering again.

    Inadequate padding

    I returned this product before using it

    Chamois seems decent, the hip pad seems a bit more robust but the rest of them are just squishy foam inserts. Not actual padding that has resemblance to Leatt or others with hardening on impact material or stiff foam. Appears to be about same consistency as the chamois itself. Returning it for something that will actually help protect in minor crashes

    Hope I never need the protection!

    These fit well, and seem to have protection located in all the right places. I'd say they run SLIGHTLY larger than other cycling shorts. I usually wear a large, and ordered a large. While I think a medium would probably be too small for me, this large is bigger than most larges...not by much, but, something to think about if you are "between sizes".
