Push the limits.
Mountain biking is all about progression—Remember how that little step-down used to scare the bejeezus out of you?—so you better have gear like the DAKINE Boundary Men’s Shorts, which are as eager to push the limits as you are. The Boundary is as happy going up as it is shredding down. It’s made from light and stretchy but rugged polyester and spandex with reinforced stitching that doubles down on durability in the spots you need it most. Mesh vents on the inner legs pull in much-needed air when you’re busting a lung up an exposed climb, and the inner waist adjustment is the perfect way to make room for that post-shred burrito.
