Fox Attack Pro
The Attack has repeatedly proven itself as one of the finest baggy shorts available today. Cut with a slimmer pattern than most of Fox's other offerings, they maintain a generous length that's enhanced by Fox's stretchy, lightweight TruMotion fabric. The freedom of motion and all day comfort that these premium shorts provide makes them an undisputed leader in their class.
Troy Lee Designs Skyline Air
The Skyline Air is a specialist pair of shorts aimed at keeping you cool on sweltering summer days.

Liner shorts included.
POC Resistance Pro Enduro
For riders who regularly experiment with, and frequently surpass their limits, the Resistance Pro Enduro shorts offer built in reinforcement to survive your most spectacular get-offs and keep coming back for more. The knee length cut and stretchy, water-repellant material makes them especially well adapted to unpredictable weather and slick trail conditions.
Enduro has become a catchall marketing phrase, but Yeti's premier shorts truly have the pedigree to back up their name, as reigning Enduro World Series champion Richie Rude was instrumental in developing these slim, knee-length masterpieces. Minimalist in nature and optimized for pedaling with knee pads, these shorts are exceedingly versatile and refreshingly no-nonsense.
Pearl Izumi Canyon
With a thoughtfully tailored yet not-too-slim cut, Pearl Izumi's luxuriously stretchy Transfer material, and an included liner short, the Canyon shorts offer tremendous value.

Liner shorts included.

Along with a highly customizable fit, ample storage, and a range of color options, the Ethers are a truly outstanding value. Liner shorts included.
The Airmatics have quickly become a favorite for their stretchy materials, above-the-knee fit, and bold color options. Along with the included liner short, the Airmatics lay claim to adjustable hook and loop closures at the waist, and a single zippered pocket, all of which add up to precisely what's needed in a trail short, and not one stitch more. Liner shorts included.
In the realm of slim-fitted shorts offering unrestricted freedom of movement, the lightweight Fox Attack shorts have precious few equals.

Troy Lee Designs Ruckus
The aptly-named Ruckus shorts are built specifically for women with a taste for riding's rowdier side.

But unlike burlier downhill shorts, the Ruckus is also primed for pedaling, lending a heaping spoonful of versatility.

It would be fairly accurate to describe the Norrie shorts as a walking paradox. Constructed of heavy-duty materials and cut long to accommodate knee pads, they're ready to tackle the rowdiest riding around. At the same time, they've become a cult classic for a flattering fit that transitions easily into après activities. They're a worthy addition to any serious rider's wardrobe.
Lightweight construction with just enough stretch make the Navaeh shorts an ideal choice for summer riding.

Pearl Izumi Canyon
If you're looking for an option with a shorter, closely fitted cut, the Canyon shorts are worth your serious consideration.
