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 polyester/elastane 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.
The Kaweah prints bring some extra detail compared to the Freel with the wildflower-inspired Thistle and mountain-town-Milky-Way-inspired Constellation (can you spot the Wild Rye mountains?)Shop The Kawaeh
You might be wondering what the difference is between the Kaweah and Freel. Well, we’re here to answer your questions! 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, the PRICE and a few simple style details. 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.
I love the cut and how they move with me on a ride. Other shorts feel restrictive. The pockets are on-point and the thick waistband with the double snap is so comfortable and flattering. It poured on my first ride in the Kaweah, and the fabric dried super quickly.

With other shorts, I’m constantly pulling my shorts up or my shirt down—these hit exactly where they’re supposed to and stayed there. They’re a great length, and the phone pocket angle is perfect because it doesn’t interfere with my ride but gives me easy access. Plus, the Kaweah makes your butt look good!
