LPS 5605 Short

The folks at Troy Lee Designs have been involved with dirt for years. They started with motocross and more recently moved into mountain bikes. Although TLD is relatively new to the MTB scene, its designers' experience with motocross makes them experts on protective clothing and gear for all two-wheeled sports, especially those where speed is essential and crashes are inevitable. The Troy Lee Designs LPS 5605 Short combines crash protection with riding comfort in a way that enhances your ride and softens the occasional digger.

TLD started the LPS 5605 with a four-way stretch mesh body. The mesh allows air to flow freely through the short to keep you cool. This synthetic material also pulls sweat away from your body to keep you dry and eliminate the clammy feeling that some materials can give you. Four-way stretch allows the fabric to move in any direction, so the shorts won't bind while you move. This stretch property also makes the short more durable, because it stretches instead of tearing, and (with a little help from silicone grippers), keeps the short from sliding around on your body while you ride. The fabric is also anti-microbial to keep you from smelling like a locker room after a day of riding. The main body of fabric was designed with a relaxed fit that feels natural in the normal riding position. This relaxed fit is less intrusive than a compression short, which can be comfortable, but isn't necessary for DH and freeriding.

The protection side of things is provided by Troy Lee's low-profile foam panels. These panels are designed to ride close to the skin without the bulky feeling that thick pads and hard shells are infamous for. The panels are cut into natural-feeling anatomic shapes that move comfortably with the body. Padding is provided for the outer thighs (for impact) and for the inner thighs and crotch (to alleviate pressure from the saddle). Comfort is also enhanced with flatlock seams and a comfort fit waistband. TLD also included tapered legs that keep the short from riding up without feeling like a compression short.

The Troy Lee Designs LPS 5605 Short comes in Black and is available in sizes XS, S, M, and L.

  • Impact protection pads on outer and inner thighs and hips
  • Chamois liner to reduce chafing
  • Tapered legs keep the shorts in place

    Hardly any protection.

    I returned this product before using it

    There is no substantial padding on this. Unless you fall at an incredible slow speed onto soft ground these will do nothing. The chamois is not enough to replace a regular riding short. Not sure what everyone else is on. These aren't enough to be protection and not enough to be a riding short.

    Cover your butt

    I've used it several times
    True to size

    I was looking for a bit more padding for those unexpected bike park bails, but i didnt want something that was going to get in the way while climbing or be too bulky to justify wearing. These are the perfect balance for me and do not feel bulky or too hot on the warmer days. They fit well under my riding baggies and on longer days in the saddle, they even fit okay over my standard chamios and still under my baggies. I have not put these to the test with a good crash, but they seem to hug in the spots i have crashed prior. Hopefully, I won't be putting them to the test soon, but I am confident that I will be covered when I do.

    perfect mix

    I've used it several times

    was looking for a minimalistic under short and this is perfect. Good chamois to keep everything feeling good and just enough pads for those slide outs. Breathable and comfy.

    Nice liner

    Seems a little less padding than what I was expecting. But not overly bulky at All. I feel they will be effective protection against skids and small impacts. I had one o.t.b. while wearing them, and welp, I didn't hurt my hips. I plan on buying another pair.

    Good comfortable protection

    I've put it through the wringer

    I've gone down with these pads multiple times over the past 2 years. Over all, they have saved me a lot of skin. When I wreck, I will usually scrape up my thigh on the outside - that is where the best padding is on these liners. I have had them slide up my thigh during the crash and I still lost some skin, but not as much as I would have without the padding. Usually they stay put pretty well. I am a size 34 and I got these in a large. Might go with a medium next time and that might keep them in place better during a spill as well. As others have mentioned the padding is not thick, so don't expect it will keep you completely safe with a direct hit from a rock, but it will help. I also have the 7 Protection liner shorts (also awesome). The 7's have more stout padding, but those shorts are also less comfortable, heavier and more bulky. I think both of those padded liners do well with the usual sliding on dirt type of wreck. The 7's will do better with a direct hit to the thigh with a rock or tree. I save the 7's for the aggressive enduro days and use the TLD for light enduro activities. Initially I had a problem with the tag in the back of the shorts that caused chafing. This seems minor but it was really annoying. In removing the tag I ripped the shorts some but they remain functional- and now, comfortable. I suspect the tag problem I had was not normal for these liners since I have other TLD liners where the tag is not bothersome. Annoying - but no stars off since they make up for it with the over all comfort and protection. The chamois is good and has held up well. This is my preferred padded liner.

    Save some skin

    I've put it through the wringer
    True to size

    When I first took these under shorts out of the package I was a little surprised by what seemed as lack of protection. I could see there was protective padding but I expected it to be a bit more substantial. It turns out that these are the most comfortable protective liners I've worn, and they protect you pretty well. I had a nice slide out on some loose rocky stuff and landed right on my thigh/hip and these things definitely saved some skin. A worthy investment for gravity riding.
