There are a whole lot of cycling shorts on the market.  Let us help you narrow it down.  Click the box below to find your path to the bottoms that work for you!

On the Road

Our road gear is mainly designed for the time you may spend on the road, and how hard you’re riding.  All our chamois (the pad inside the shorts : padded bike shorts) come in different thicknesses to give more support during the day.  Our cycling shorts also have different levels of fabric that offer varying degrees of compression.  The more compressive a bike short is the more it stimulates blood flow during your ride, so more compressive shorts tend to be better for longer rides.

Less than an hour

If you’re out for less than an hour, then a good basic pad and some nice fabric is all you need. Our shorts below are great to get you going and offer plenty of features to get you moving.

Just Being Comfortable

If you’re starting to put those miles in and do some work, it’s time to upgrade to a comfortable cycling short with more padding and compression. These shorts will cover you on your endurance rides and weekend getaways with no problem!

Going fast! (And being comfortable)

If you’re going the distance and going for speed, then it would be wise to invest in a really nice pair of bottoms. At this point in your riding, bottoms become more than just shorts. At this point they become a piece of equipment! The interface between your body and the bicycle becomes extremely important for those long hard days in the saddle. We’ve included some of the best cycling apparel technologies in the world into our cycling shorts and we guarantee they will deliver whatever needs your riding demands.

In the Woods

Mountain biking is one of the most fun activities we think the great world of outdoor sports has to offer!  There are tons of diffent types of mountain biking you can do.  We’ve narrowed it down to two basic types of apparel categories that will cover just about any style of mountain biking you prefer.

More down than up

If you’re shuttling, riding a lift, or prefer your descents over climbing, the bottoms listed below are for you. These MTB shorts offer thicker fabrics in case you hit the dirt, longer inseams to interface with knee pads, and more panels to allow for greater stretch and flexibility.

More up than down

If you’re just out to ride all day and have some fun, get in some good climbing, and fly down some flow trail, then check these shorts out. They typically have lighter weight fabric that are more breathable, shorter inseams so you can pedal up those hills, and a slightly tapered fit. They’re also great for riding pretty much anywhere else you can imagine, so you can get more use out of them even on the days you’re off the trail.

I still prefer Lycra - And don't mind looking like a nerd

No Problem! Our CB carbon bottoms provide a great option for riding in the woods! They’re lightweight and breathable, but still hold up during the occasional snag.

Gravel / Cyclocross

Headed out for some soul crushing “groad” riding? (Groad is Gravel + Road)

We’ll jump straight to the pro tip on this one: You can wear road specific or mtb specific apparel when riding groad! There’s really no need to buy gravel specific kit for this style of riding, and the current offerings we have will definitely cover you while you’re out there. That being said, groad riding is typically harder on your sitbones that traditional road riding, so be sure to get a pair of bottoms that have plenty of cushion.

In Town / Commuting

We like to think about our town and commute excursions by the time we spend on the bike, and how hard we’re riding. If you have to ride a long way, and you think you’ll be sweating a lot then we’d recommend you stick to a typical road kit. If you’re travelling short distances, or have an ebike, you may be able to get around pretty easily with your standard clothes, but a lot of times our normal clothing can be pretty restrictive from a mobility stand point. There’s also a pretty good chance you’re going to sweat at some point, so having functional bottoms will help you get around easier with more freedom.
