Let the trail party begin.

Bring the party to the trail with the Troy Lee Designs Men's Ruckus Short Shell. With breathability to the max, and just enough coverage for tossing on your favorite knee pads, the Ruckus shorts are rowdy and ready for any trail you point yourself down. They are crafted from a perfect blend of polyester and spandex to give you that coveted 4-way stretch when you're on the bike, and this year's model offers you some welcome upgrades to the previous fan-favorite shorts.

For 2018, TLD employs a new double-button low profile closure up front that tucks out of the way, instead of overlapping, when you're on the bars, and a new anatomically contoured waistband that stays comfortable and sleek for miles. The back panel also was redesigned for better articulation, with an extra boost of breathability from breathable mesh — all the while keeping true to the TLD aesthetic you dig. For a precise fit, adjustable waist tabs prevent this short from sliding off during fast movements. And because you rarely ride without gadgets, snacks, or tools, a variety of secure-stashing pockets make easy work of carrying all your riding accessories.

  • Rugged shorts ready to attack the trail
  • Four-way stretch for riding without restriction
  • Sits just below the knee for optimal coverage
  • Large zippered cargo pockets secure essentials
  • Redesigned waist elevates comfort and style
  • Mesh panels boost breathing, and inner thigh vents drop heat
  • Pairs well with your favorite pads for rowdy days

Shorts are the Bees Knees

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These shorts rock. Super comfy. Stretch where you want them to, burly everywhere else. The mix of zip and open pockets works well for riding and apres. The zip vents in the legs are great for those warm days and keep things nice and ventilated.

I found the run a bit on the large size. I'm a 32in waist in most everything and I've completely maxed out the velcro adjustments. They stay up, but I'd size down to a 30 if I did it again so I have some more adjust ability.

Favorite Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are by far my favorite bike shorts. Super durable while still being fairly lightweight. Pockets and venting are well thought out. Nice to be able to buy them without a liner. Highly recommended.

Best Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Size Bought: 32

These are the best MTN bike shorts that I have ever owned. Either DH lift laps or climbing they are the best. Fit is great and do not ride up. Only downside is the metal zipper on the inner thigh vents scratched my frame up a but. Recommend putting rubber caps.

10 on 10 would recommend

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Got these shorts for my boyfriend and they are his go to MTB shorts. Stretchy, comfortable, durable, and breathable. The thigh vents are an awesome touch for hot, dusty days here in Utah. He typically wears a 33 and sized up to a 34 which are slightly large but the adjustable straps on the waist help to reel in the extra room.

bring the Ruckus

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

like the great Wu Tang Clan once said, these shorts will allow you to bring all of the Ruckus to the trail. breathable, stretchy, and durable. great for all riding.

Great Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After getting my wife some Ruckus shorts I decided to try my own luck with some of these, and I'm glad I did. Super comfortable and super breathable. I'd say that the length on these is a bit longer than some other models, but I don't have an issue with it. So far they seem crazy durable as well.

Super Comfy Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Really dig these. I've had a pair in the past and decided to get another just in case. As others have said the sizing on these can be a bit strange depending on what size your fit is, but they'll get the job done regardless. Maybe size down if they're feeling huge, but other than that these are excellent. Super breathable and lightweight.

Tough and Durable Stretch Fabric

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are my favorite mountain bike shorts. They are a great length sitting barely below the knee. I like the one zippered pocket for my phone and the other one without a zipper for quick access to my keys. My favorite feature is the tough and durable stretch material.


  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I brought these shorts for my boyfriend in a size large and he loves them. They are a little big on him - he is 5'11'' and weighs 170 lbs - but they are breathable and comfy. These shorts are definitely durable as well.
