- New Shorts – Recommendations Please
I have a pair of Enduras. They are great, but looking for something a bit different.
Have some Pearl Izumis which are excellent too. There’s some magic in them meaning they’re waterproof and breathable. Unfortunately, weight loss means I cannot wear them anymore. Wish I’d worn them more when I was bigger because they’re great!Posted 4 years agobutterbeanMember
The Sombrio Highline shorts are good, the cut is a little tight on them unless you have little chicken legs though. The waist is about average, I use a medium on them (small 33″).
The TLD Skyline shorts are also very good, nice & lightweight. Can’t comment on the pockets, as I never use them anyway. They are a slim fit also so you won’t want to fill them with crap.
Raceface Indy shorts are also great.Posted 4 years ago
@binners haha! I am afraid to look at my bank account after my bearing change on the bike turned into a full drivetrain upgrade. Seemed rude not to while the chainset was off, so consider yourself lucky!
Cheers for the info on the Skyline shorts guys. I’m away on a trip somewhere warm so I’ll need a couple of pairs of shorts. Finding myself drawn to these ones now. Is white a mistake?
People seem to really like the Sombrios. Interesting. And yes, I do have chicken legs 🙁Posted 4 years agochrisdwSubscriber
In reference to a recent PSA
These (Scott Mind) have got to be some of the best I have worn. Not sure if anywhere is still selling them cheap, but they are fantastic.
Nice light material; cut is nigh on perfect although erring slightly on the baggy side.
Prior to these my favourite shorts were 2012 Endura Singletracks which are still my go to short for crap weather without going full-on waterproof.Posted 4 years agosomafunkSubscriber
I recently ordered some Sugoi Hans shorts from sportspursuit for the very cheap price of £35 but i mistakenly ordered a large rathar than a medium – if anyone on here wants them they’re yours for £35 +£3.00 postage otherwise i’m gonna send then back, bloody good shorts and excellent liner, i’m most peeved i ordered the wrong size.
Same as these below and they still have all the tags on as i’ve not even bothered to try them on as i’m on the border between a small/medium in sugoi kit.

Cheers. Ordered the TLD Aces from Wiggle. May order the Sombrios as a backup.
Sizing has gone really wacky these days. By conventional measurements (waist, above belly button and narrowest point) I am a 33. However, all my jeans are 30s. Tailored trousers are 28s. I don’t know whom to believe!
A bit funny to think according to my trouser measurements I’m an extra small for Sombrios!Posted 4 years ago
@curiousyellow Don’t order the XS I’m a 28″/30″ waist in everything I wear and got the Sombrios today.
I Ordered XS going off their size chart and they come up quite small. I can do them up but they’re really snug (ie no room for cake expansion). So I’m returning them and have ordered the smalls which are 30″-32″.Posted 4 years ago
TLD ACEs just turned up. Includes a liner as well but has a velcro fly, which I’m not too sure about, but the green is nice and lairy!
It’s just about right in a 30″ fit for me. The proof will be in the riding though. Let’s see what happens once the bike’s back.Posted 4 years ago
