Mountain Bike Shorts Length. This year, our iconic Ranger Mountain bike short received an update to improve the fit. But you can't really put a price on a great.
The right pair of biking shorts delivers stretch without restriction. Gel shorts: Padded with gel, these options are the most comfortable for commuter-length bike rides. For commuting or road cycling, panel construction improves fit, while a padded bike short liner minimizes friction and wicks sweat.
The first mountain bikes were built from pirated road bike parts.
This is more of personal preference on how long you want you your shorts to be.
Knee pads would be the opposite effect. We design high performance mountain bike shorts, jerseys, gloves, and cycling socks for men, women & kids. We have three baggy mountain bike styles.
