No boundaries except this one.

Designed for the all-mountain enthusiast, the DAKINE Boundary Short is not only tough, but lightweight as well, so you'll be comfortable and feeling fly whether you're going uphill or down. DAKINE built the Boundary with tough, stretchy polyester and spandex fabric. The shorts have reinforced stitching throughout key areas, but are still nice and lightweight for easy pedaling. Throw in some mesh inner leg vents to help cool you down, a zippered side pocket for valuables, and interior waist adjustments to dial in the fit, and you have shorts that will go as hard as you.

How to Measure:
For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.

Perfect Minimalist MTB Short

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 34 & 36

These shorts are sleek, light, breathable, and stretchy. I typically wear a size 34 and found the fit to be too tight. I bumped up to a 36 and they fit perfect. The waistband has velcro tabs to tighten the waistband as needed. If you are looking for a lightweight short with a trim / tailored fit, these are the way to go! We will see how they hold up...

I agree Ray, these run a tad small so sizing up is not a bad idea. Hope you are enjoying the fall riding!

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I recently purchased this short. It is very light weight and is my new best favorite short to wear. I sweat a lot and the fabric in this short stretches, breathes, and is super light weight, but not too light. My only complaint is that there could be one more pocket. Just one on the thigh is not enough.


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

Thankfully I prefer a slimmer cut baggy short. They stretch in all the right places and are overall comfortable. I wear a pair of road bibs underneath since these dont have a chamois. Good, but not great shorts.

Slimmer Fit, not necessarily small

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 34

I bought these in my standard size 34. They fit great for riding Cross Country and Trail. If you're looking for a short to cover you knee pads or for mostly gravity fed riding, definitely size up or try a different short. These have a slim fit but the waist size was pretty much spot on for me. I appreciate the tighter fit as I'm able to move freely without getting caught up on anything.

Weird Fit

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Medium

Really like the material of these shorts and the layout of everything, but the rise is VERY short. It was pretty tight/bunched/uncomfortable up front and I'm not sure going to a size Large would have helped.

Runs small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 32

These run much smaller than all of my Fox shorts. I usually wear a 32 in Fox, and the 32 in these shorts fit really tight. Sending them back to try a 34.
