Delta Short (Men's)

Our Men’s Overshorts are ready to take on any trail you are, be it near or far. Designed around your full range of motion, the four-way stretch, double weave Schoeller® fabric breathes beautifully and moves with you. The fit is cut neither too loose nor too tight and the leg opening easily slides over low-profile knee pads should there be a gnarly descent or two in your future.

    • Four-way stretch, double weave Schoeller fabric provides maximum breathability and mobility
    • Fit is cut neither too loose nor too tight
    • Leg opening easily slides over low-profile knee pads
    • Zippered hip pockets, one internal pocket, and a key loop keep the essentials secure

    Why Ride Cut?

    The Ride Cut is tailored to be on the bike with a slightly looser fit and leg openings large enough to fits over knee pads.

    Why Cafe Cut?

    The fit on the Cafe Cut is a bit more modern and tapered, suitable for cafe and brewery outings after a nice ride or hike.

Great Shorts

I like these shorts. The material is great - strong, light, and they stay dry. The cut and fit of the shorts is very good too. I realized the other day that I don't notice the shorts when I ride. This means that they are doing exactly what they should do in terms of fit and performance. Another big item is that the shorts do not slide down (like other ones I own). The belt provides just enough tension at the waist to keep them in place. I would like the belt to be a bit better. It goes partway around the waist and is stitched to the shorts, so that there is tension on the shorts at those points. This does allow the waist to stretch, but stresses the shorts at those points. Long term, I don't know if this will be a problem, but likely not. Also, the small plastic tension locks on the sides open up if there is too much tension on the belt. Better than the shorts ripping, but it means I have to get the belt tension just right. Its too fiddly. My first couple rides, the clips would pop loose and I'd have to re-adjust. I figured out how to make them work, but it still takes fiddling with it to get it set right before I ride. I'd prefer the belt went all the way round the waist with a plastic buckle and a single pull cinch. Simpler, easier to work, and not a stress on the material. That said, the shorts are still much better than everything else I've looked at or tried as they actually have a belt that works.

Great fit and materials

I'm 6' and 175 pounds and have the large size in the "Ride" version. Ideally, the medium would probably fit better, but the large is fine with the adjustable waist straps. These shorts are somewhat expense, but the materials are first rate and they look and feel great on and off the trails. I like that they are a tad longer than most mountain bike shorts. The side pockets are big and easy to access while riding. Also, I really like that the shorts have no velcro.
