AndyMwrote a review of Troy Lee Designs Sprint Short - Men's on August 8, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I bought these looking for a more durable pair of trail shorts, and they certainly felt plenty burly, with a good amount of venting considering. The right leg pocket fit my Nexus 5X great. The problem is they're just not cut for any decent amount of pedaling. The crotch hangs low when the short is at your natural waist and causes the legs to bind up pedaling - I had to twice stop on the climb to pull them up and cinch down the waist. I also noticed the leg openings don't slide easily over my knee guards, and rubbed the back of my knee when the guards were pushed down. I think part of the problem to the range of motion issues was that while many parts of the shell are stretchy, the inner mesh liner is not. I was surprised at how poorly they fit me considering I have 2 pairs of 32 TLD Ruckus shorts that fit and pedal great.
