Not quite sure what the difference is between each short or want to compare the styles? Check out the handy guides below followed by a fit video that features women of different shapes and sizes in each style. Keep in mind, our MULTI, SHORTIE, MTB SHORT and MTB LONG shorts all have the same fit – the differences are in their features and the length. Our MTB CURVY has its very own fit. So whether you’re looking for a comfy summer short to hike and paddle in, or the perfect short for your mountain bike adventures, this guide can help steer you in the right direction.
the MULTI SPORT SHORT
This short is the Whole Enchilada, the one that does it all and offers everything you need to have a great time, no matter what you’re doing. Inspired by mountain biking but designed for more, the MULTI-SPORT SHORT features everything needed to move comfortably on and off the trail. The relaxed yet flattering cut paired with quick-dry, lightweight and durable fabric (offering the perfect amount of stretch) makes all outdoor adventures much more enjoyable. Cycling? Hiking? Golfing? Camping? Yoga? Climbing? SUP? You name it, this short can handle it. You’ll even find you need no excuse at all to wear this short…all…the…time! Offered in sizes 00-18.
the MTB SHORT
The quintessential women’s mountain bike and outdoor short with added features. The MTB SHORT was designed with all the features needed to stay stylishly comfy and cool on the bike. Added features include an internal waist adjustment system, and invisible-zipper thigh vents. With this short you can check all outdoor apparel needs off your list – biking shorts, hiking apparel, board shorts, climbing apparel….just step in, adjust the waist, unzip the vents and you’ll be ready for it all. Offered in sizes 00-18.
the MTB LONG
The quintessential women’s mountain bike short with some added length. The MTB LONG is 3 inches longer than its sister, the MTB SHORT. It also boasts the waist adjuster system and invisible thighs vents while offering a longer length for more coverage on those chilly mornings, late night adventures, while wearing knee pads, or for those who have legs that never seem to end. A flattering and stylish look that makes the fact that these shorts are engineered to perform even more undercover. Offered in sizes 00-18.
the MTB CURVY
If you typically find shorts to be too slim fitting in the hips and thighs or always have issues with waist gap, THIS SHORT WAS DESIGNED FOR YOU! Spanning sizes 4-24, the MTB CURVY has a curve-friendly fit through the hips and thighs (thank you magically shaped back panel) and a legging-style, stretchy waistband with a higher rise and an internal draw cord (say goodbye to gapping at the waist). This style also boasts the same technical features found in our MTB SHORT and MTB LONG which includes: invisible zipper thigh vents, a handy side pocket, and two (deep) hand pockets.
the MULTISPORT SHORTIE
Please welcome the newest style to our collection of shorts: the MULTISPORT SHORTIE! It is our MULTI SPORT reimagined and we’re pretty amused by its versatility. Women have been asking for shorts with a shorter inseam…but so many love our current length. So we put on the ‘ol thinking cap and figured out how to give you both in the same short! Want to wear it short, fine. Want to wear it long, great? Want to wear one leg up and the other down, whatever floats your boat. All are possible with the foldable hem providing adjustable inseam lengths. Some colorways even have a contrasting pattern at the hem giving you a little extra fun and flare. You’ll also notice that the cargo pocket on the size has been replaced with a zipper pocket. And yes it is just as deep (deeper actually) so it will fit your brick of a phone. Offered in sizes 00-14
