Why We Built The Backcountry Slickrock 9in Bike Short

"The lightweight fabric is perfect for the high temps during summer rides." —Gearhead® Expert Jessie

Whether we want to save some precious grams and show a little thigh or go from trail to town without changing our shorts, our Backcountry Slickrock 9in Short sits high atop our list of double-duty bike shorts. The 4-way stretch fabric and close-to-the-body fit give us full freedom of movement for tackling technical high alpine rock gardens and sandstone slickrock descents, while the integrated belt and waistband gripper ensure that our shorts stay put, no matter how rocky the trail gets.

Comfortable Shorts

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

I am 5'10", 150 lbs, size 31" waist and the Small size fit well. Shorts are very comfortable and seem to be well made. I like the way the belt works. Would recommend.

new favorite mtb shorts

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 8"

I'm 5'8" 155 lbs, so the 9" inseam are perfect for me. These shorts are lightweight and comfortable. I went with a size small. I have two pair of these (10" inseam) in the previous style from Backcountry which I also like.
