Shorts- Troy Lee Ace, or Endura Hummvee…?
Weighing up a purchase of some new shorts and these two seem for get favourable reviews.
The TL are about £30 more than the Enduras, so just wondering if that extra cost is justifiable.
I don’t want a really baggy flappy cut- something with a “racier”, cut is preferable.
Anyone any experience of either?Posted 3 years agoGoldiggerMember
I’ve got both the Humvee and the Ace..
Ace is a much better short IMHO, padded liner is also a lot better.
Better fit but less pockets, not really an issue as I prefer to put everything in my camel back.
Humvee doesn’t keep me from getting a sore ass.. Ace does..
If I’m out in the mud I will use the Humvee with the Ace liner. Humvee is black and ACE red, winter mud was a pig to remove from the ACE.Posted 3 years ago
Soaked them in napisan for a couple of days..did the trick.
Have you tried all of the online retailers?
How do they size up or down?
I’m gobsmacked at the pricing on shorts. Synthetic/plastic things at upto £80. Ridiculous
I’ve always found TLD to be a bit smaller than FOX, Sombrio and One Industries shorts. Jerseys seem about the same as others apart from One Industries ones which are HUGE.
Price wise yep – that’s what sales are for! I think hyrdro packs take the mick even mor ethough. Especially Acre.Posted 3 years agoTheArtistFormerlyKnownAsSTRSubscriber
Troy Lee Moto’s for me every time. They are a bit heavier construction, but that’s the reason I buy them – they are the only shorts I’ve found that don’t fall apart at the arse after a few wet, gritty Peak rides.
Not coming with a liner is a plus for me too, as I don’t like padded liners. They do have a couple of nifty little hip bone protection pads though.Posted 3 years agonealyMember
I got a pair of TLD ace shorts last year and they’re better than the Fox altitude shorts which I thought were perfect. Very comfy, the liner is very very comfy and they’re tough (unmarked even though my thigh looked like I’d been riding in speedos and fell off). Silly money really but they are brilliant, I was put off by the velcro fly but from day one it’s been fine and prefer it now. Got some china copy TLD moto which are much heavier but also good if you’re not on a pedally epicPosted 3 years agojohnnyboy666Member
I had some Humvees and I can’t say I’m crazy about them. The Fox stuff I have is a million times better cut and consequently loads more comfortable on the trails. The Rangers are good but my favourites are the Demo freerides. Super good and nice and light. They don’t have millions of pockets though.Posted 3 years ago
