SHOWERS PASS MOUNTAIN BIKE SHORTS COMPARISON GUIDE

gravel shorts

Great for: Longer road, gravel rides, commuting, hiking, or lounging at home.

Features / Sizing

  • Tailored fit and true to size for those with a climber's or long-distance runner's physique. For the sprinters among you, size up and use the adjustable waist tabs on the inside to customize your fit
  • Adjustable waist tabs on the inside allow for a customized fit
  • Belt loops for a more formal look or to fasten your outdoor accessories to
  • Silicone grip on the back to prevent the shorts from riding up, or down, when riding or vigorously vacuuming at home
  • 6 pockets – 2 rear, one of which is zipped, 2 on the thighs and 2 on the front
  • Thigh pockets double up as vents, assuming they are empty of course!
  • 4-way stretch fabric means that even with a trimmer fit, these shorts still allow for a lot of movement

This is our most fitted short, though still with plenty of space to move freely. The quick drying fabric makes them great for an impromptu swim on a hot day when out hiking.

cross country shorts / Cross Country DWR* Shorts

Great for: Cross country mountain biking, hiking, and trekking.

Features / Sizing

  • Fuller fitting than our Gravel short, true to size for the all-round athletic physique
  • Adjustable Velcro waist tabs for a customized fit, in lieu of belt loops
  • Silicone grip on the back to prevent the shorts from riding up, or down, when riding or vigorously vacuuming at home
  • Heavier weighted fabric on the rear for longer life, especially if used for cycling
  • 5 pockets, two with snap closures on the back, one on the right thigh and two pockets to slip your hands in when you’re at a loose end
  • Reflective accents for when you get caught out at the end of a ride and are hauling back to base on the pavement

These are a little more form fitting than the IMBA Shorts but still loose enough to wear padded cycling shorts underneath for longer rides. *DWR stands for Durable Waterproof Repellent – in other words water, or spilt drinks, will bead up and run off the shorts.
