Women's Guide Trail MTB Shorts (Black)

My favorite shorts I've purchased

I was nervous about buying shorts online, but these fit perfectly! I measured another pair of bike shorts (my previous favorites) to get the right measurements, and I ended up with my true pant size (I'm 5'10", 150-155, usually a size 8). They're durable, and I like the length a lot! Can't wait to get another pair!

Awesome Shorts!

These shorts move perfectly with you while you are on the trails. They fit beautifully and they are super comfy!

Adjustable waistband and appropriately-sized pockets

I purchased these after getting the chance to try them on at a Texas Dirt Therapy event. I love that the pockets fit my smartphone and are positioned on the side, providing easy access without being bulky on a ride. As a tall female with zero curves but athletic legs, I struggle to find shirts and shorts that fit well. The hook and loop waistband adjustment is great as it allows me to take the waist in far enough to actually allow the shorts to fit me well in the waist. I would have preferred just a bit more room in the leg opening, but these are by far the best MTB shorts I've found for my body type and are now my go-to favorites to wear.

For reference, I'm 5' 9", 143 and purchased a size 6.

The Long Awaited MTB Shorts!!!

I finally got to wear the Trial Shorts this past Sunday - it was unseasonably warm here in Pennsylvania for late December. The fit is great - true to size. The material is soft and stretchy, making them very comfortable and move with you when you ride. No issues with sagging and getting caught on the seat during descents - the micro adjustments along the waistline are great to dial in the fit. I love the side pockets for keeping keys and things secured and out of the way. I can't say enough about these shorts - they were definitely worth the wait!
