Why We Built The Backcountry Slickrock 7in Bike Short

Built for those of us who want to show a little extra thigh on our ride or just take a dip in that high alpine lake at the top of the climb, our Backcountry Slickrock 7in Bike Short is built to be lightweight and airy for those rides that climb into the triple digits. The 4-way stretch fabric and 7-inch inseam leave us full freedom to move about the bike through technical sections of rocks and roots, while the integrated belt ensures that our shorts stay exactly where we put them no matter how chunky the trail becomes.


  • Light and airy mountain bike shorts for mid-summer trail rides

Perfect for hot days

I've put it through the wringer

I love these shorts. They are perfect for biking on hot days and look very good with longer short liners, giving a cool layered look.

Rad short, shorts!

Great shorts and great construction. I'm glad there is a slim-fitting short-short alternative out there. I'll be keeping my eye on the Backcountry MTB offerings! Get a pair; you will not be disappointed.

Not for cyclists with legs.

5'9" 215 and My actual waist size is a 34 but decided to buy the large and they fit in the waist but way to small in the legs. They honestly fit like bibs would in the legs so probably would of been better off just going with bibs.

Smaller than pictured

The inseam is closer to 5 inches. It wears short, and the cuff fit tight around my leg causing them to creep up to my crouch. I am smilar in size to the model pictured, that is not how they fit me...

Awesome tech shorts

I've used it several times

Bought these shorts for mountain biking. Have you been using them for all sorts of outdoor activities and they are fantastic. They do it all from trail running, mountain biking , rock climbing, backpacking. They are super comfortable. The pockets are generous and zipper shut makes it so that your load is secure by far the best text shorts I’ve ever bought. Just wish there was more colors
