Kaweah Bike Short
We don’t believe in compromise, which is why we made the Kaweah women’s mountain bike short: a do-everything, go-anywhere short that will keep you on the bike during those long summer evenings or chilly fall mornings. The Kaweah is designed with a durable 90% recycled poly/10% spandex blend to give you a breathable mountain bike short that wicks sweat while moving with your pedal stroke. A DWR finish ensures that even the muddiest puddles won’t dampen your style.
Now available in GIRLS sizing - shop Kaweah Girls now.
Note: the Kaweah is a slimmer cut with less stretch than the Freel, so when in doubt, size up! If you're looking for a short that accommodates a curvier body, we'd always recommend the Freel over the Kaweah.

Frosty Ranunculus: Bringing back a fan-favorite print with an all new colorway, Frosty Ranunculus is an exclusive collaboration print with our good friends at Title Nine and Skida!
Deco Birds: Inspired by our love of all things warm and tropical, our deco birds print will have you dreaming of pina coladas whether you're actually at the beach or just pretending in your local bike park parking lot.
Tie Dye: Throwing it way back with this bright blue tie dye. This print was lovingly and laboriously hand-dyed and then digitized to give it the most realistic "I'm back in the early 2000's" look possible.
Lilac Happy Hour: The happy hour print was inspired by our love of all things aprés. Here at Wild Rye we’re in full support of earning your turns, but we also like the idea that you can earn your aprés, too.
You might be wondering what the difference is between the Kaweah and Freel. The two shorts share a lot in common: water repellency, a great fit, phenomenal style, and durability. The main differences you’ll find are in the fabric and thus the price! The Kaweah is a polyester blend, while the Freel is nylon. If you buy shorts from any of our fellow MTB loving brands, you’ll be familiar with a polyester short. It’s the workhorse. If you're still not sure how to pick the best shorts for you, check out our new Kaweah vs Freel comparison chart, here.

These shorts are so cute and durable. They are the perfect length and I love the colors and patterns they come in. I wear them almost everyday and I will definitely be buying more!
These shorts are so awesome. Love the fun colours and patterns they come in. Also love that the material feels durable, while also a bit stretchy.
Only thing to note - I would size up in these, they fit a bit small! Will definitely be buying more colours!
These shorts are incredible. Not only are they stylish but the material is rugged enough to take some good mountain bike crashes in. Plus, the zippered pocket is clutch for my phone or keys!
From the moment I put them on, I knew they were keepers! The fabric feels really nice and has the correct amount of stretch for my MTB riding.
I will start saying I love Wild Rye brand and will continue to support the business. I originally purchased a pair of shorts (size 8) last year - they were way too small, so I chalked it up to needing to size up. So I purchased the Freya pants last fall, size 10 - they fit, but a pretty baggy/loose (super love these pants). So this year, I figured I would try to buy another pair of shorts (size 10) and same thing - ran really small, so small that I could have sized up even more. Seems to be no continuity in the sizing between the shorts and pants, unfortunately.
