Pros Versatile, adjustable waist, chamois linerFunctional slim fit, great features, SWAT bibs included, good valueLightweight, ventilated, articulated fit, quality construction, thoughtful designStylish, functions well with knee pads, high-quality and reasonable priceLightweight, comfortable, tailored fit, adjustable waist closure, quick drying
Cons Expensive, short inseam, not articulatedNot the best quality controlExpensive, short inseamMinimal waistband adjustment, over-complicated closure systemTailored fit may be too slim for some
Bottom Line Mountain bike shorts with a dual personality, for the rider who sees more value in versatility than specificity.A comfortable and performance minded fit make the Specialized Enduro Pro shorts a tester favorite.Thoughtful design and quality construction make these shorts the most comfortable and high performing in our test.A quality gravity short that offers a high-quality feel but lacks an adjustable waistband.Comfortable and lightweight, the Patagonia Dirt Roamer shorts have a performance oriented fit and minimalist design.
