Pros Stylish, functions well with knee pads, high-quality and reasonable priceFunctional slim fit, great features, SWAT bibs included, good valueLightweight, ventilated, articulated fit, quality construction, thoughtful designLightweight, comfortable, tailored fit, adjustable waist closure, quick dryingWell-designed baggy fit, knee pad compatibility, stylish
Cons Minimal waistband adjustment, over-complicated closure systemNot the best quality controlExpensive, short inseamTailored fit may be too slim for someNot best suited for long days in the saddle, heavy
Bottom Line A quality gravity short that offers a high-quality feel but lacks an adjustable waistband.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.Comfortable and lightweight, the Patagonia Dirt Roamer shorts have a performance oriented fit and minimalist design.A high-end short that favors hard charging downhills over big climbs.
