- TLD Skyline vs Ruckus
- Hob NobMember
I’m a fan of the Ruckus, probably my favourite short. It’s a lot less boxy in style than the current Skyline. Also longer.
They have a few zipped pockets so can carry everything I need. Never use the pad as I dont wear them anyway. Long enough for me at 6’2″ wearing a 32″ to not get the punter gap too 🙂Posted 2 months agoRubber_BuccaneerSubscriber
Size wise look at the sizing chart, apparently the marked.size is two inches smaller than the actual waist size! I may kid myself I’m a 32 waist (and I would be if I lost some chubb) but in both Troy Lee and Fox I have to get a 30 for a decent fit. Love the Ruckus shorts, only improvement would be zips on both hip pocketsPosted 2 months ago
So ordered the 2018 Ruckus in Orange and to be safe the Skyline in black.
Ruckus seems better in every way.
Nicer fit and no Velcro fly. Was worried as I’m at the larger end of where I want to be weight wise the zipper might come down but it seems the double popper does a stellar job of keeping that in place.
Also, the pad in the liners is a real step up too and much better material.
So as much as I might look ridiculous with matching shorts and helmet, for £60 I don’t really care! Black ones were £104!Posted 2 months ago
Got mine today, great fit, great finish and great looks.Posted 2 months ago
I also bought ixs flow, dakine syncline and sweet protection.
Gonna keep the tld and maybe one of the others.
To my surprise they are all made with soft stretchy fabric, I was expecting something similar to Terrains, which I love, it’s a bit more stiff and tough. Terrains were discontinued but I don’t think TLD has a similar model in their current lineup.
