The pinnacle short for riders who never cut corners

Our most dynamic, feature-rich short was born from your feedback that we needed “one short to rule them all.” The performance-oriented cut and the most innovative fabric we use in shorts remain the same, but we’ve increased the comfort and wearability by doing away with the button.

The new auto-locking zipper and Fidlock magnetic snap belt offer easy one-handed access and keep your shorts up securely, with no waistline dig. Four pockets provide ample storage, water-resistant Schoeller® 3XDRY® treatment keeps you covered, and a cycling-specific cut keeps you comfortable for miles, days, and years of riding. Yeah, we thought of everything.

These are awesome shorts!

I quickly got over a little sticker shock as soon as these shorts showed up, and I was "wowed" with the quality and attention to detail. I was a little nervous about the sizing, and found them to run a little small. I'm normally an XL but ordered XXL for these, and they fit great. The fabric is amazing, with just the right amount of stretch to it, and feels super soft. You can tell these shorts were designed by cyclists, it's just obvious in the little details like how it's hemmed and cut, the angle of the pockets and zippers, the tailoring in the inseam to ensure you dont get saddle snag, the low profile snap button and the locking zipper. They're just really well designed - somebody put a lot of time and thought in them, and I appreciate that because it all makes up the best MTB short I've tried on. The fastener is pretty ****** ingenious, too!

Masterlink Shorts.

I've only had a chance to wear them twice so far and am already a convert! The shorts are comfortable both on and off the bike. I see them becoming my go to bike shorts. Thanks for a great product that appears to be very well made.

Versatile and comfortable shorts

Love the fit and quality of these shorts. Fits true to size. 31 inch waist and medium is not tight at all. Pockets awesome. Worth the coin!

Great Shorts

I am loving my Masterlink Shorts. The Masterlink is awesome and can adjust the belt to feel just right on the waist. I normally wear 36" shorts so went with a Large so they would not be to big and was an excellent decision. I still have plenty room in them to grow. After a ride don't want to take them off, they fell that comfortable.

Great short. Easily my new

Great short. Easily my new favorite. Be careful on sizing as I am 132lbs and needed an XS. Was apprehensive with the XS and then was sent the small to compare. Small felt really big and baggy and did not have the tailored fit. Love the material and the stretchy fabric. For the price wanted to insure they were perfect and I can honestly say they are.
