Skyline Short Shell

As Troy Lee Design's top-selling pair of baggies, the Skyline Short Shell strikes the right balance between pedal-friendly mobility and resiliency against trail thrashings. This particular version is available in shell only, so you'll be able to wear it over your favorite padded liner shorts. Its relaxed fit allows you to pedal uphill and descend freely, all while comfortably draping over your knee pads during those downhill shuttles and bike park sessions.

The Skyline Short is constructed of Bluesign-certified fabric that's more sustainable than previous versions and uses Coolmax polyester that actively wicks moisture to promote evaporative cooling. Troy Lee uses a two-way stretch rear panel, which conforms to rapid pedaling and riding movements without being constrained like a more restrictive short. TLD embossed hook-and-loop adjusters dial in the fit to your exact needs, so the short doesn't slip down as you're riding at high speeds.

Too short for riding with pads

The short material feels light and durable. The zipper fly and pockets appear sturdy. Unfortunately the shorts are too short. The inseam is only around 12" compared to the inseam of 14" on my other shorts. This leads to a gap between my shorts and pads. They would be great for people with short legs or someone riding without pads. Also the blue color is not as bright as shown in the picture.

Velcro wears out quickly

I've put it through the wringer

For some reason TLD puts out the same Skyline short every year with the same flaw: a velcro fly. The velcro wears out quickly, say, after one season, then the fly constantly pops open. I have other mtb shorts with zippers for the fly, and they work perfectly, season after season. Should we support stupid people who work at companies like TLD?
