Our flagship short, the Freel has been Outside Magazine’s Gear of the Year and is beloved by mountain bikers everywhere, from the Alps to the Bitterroots. Made with shrub-resistant and mud-deflecting nylon, the Freel is an enduro ready short that seamlessly takes you from the red rocks of Moab to the loamy single track of the PNW. With four-way stretch, deep pockets, and our unique collection of playful prints, the Freel is a beautifully designed short that’s still technical as hell. No compromises, it’s our favorite workhorse. 

AVAILABLE IN SIZES: 0-18

*Fit note! As of Spring '22, our Freel has been enhanced with a reinforced waistband which has been tested to combat stretching over time. So if you've sized down in the past, you don't need to continue to do so as these run more true to size.*

Sedona Nights: Inspired by time spent in the desert biking and playing in the Red Rock Ranger District of the Coconino National Forest with our friends at Pivot.

Great shorts!

I really love wearing these shorts, but I will say that they run a little small.

Koi print runs small!

I have these shorts in two other colors and love them. I ordered a third in the koi print in my usual size 6, but they ran super small. The waist is at least 2" smaller (yes, I measured.) Also, FYI, the true color of the shorts is much darker. They appear turquoise/yellow online, but in real life are a dark teal and orange. Overall a little bummed since I can't return and am stuck with them ... guess I shoulda read the reviews.

Tight waist

I loved the feel bike shorts in every way except for the fit in the waist. I adjusted to their sizing, or so I thought. I normally wear a size 4 in pants but ordered the 6 and unfortunately the waist was too small for riding comfort.

Awesome Well-Built Shorts, Conflicting Feelings On Sizing

I own and love several pairs of Wild Rye bottoms and I really like these shorts. They would be perfect with a few adjustments. Let me start off by saying that these shorts are clearly well-made, have great pockets, and are super cute (I purchased the Lotus pattern). I would buy them again based on just this alone.

I think if I were to purchase these shorts again, I would probably purchase them one size larger as others have recommended. My waist measures 28" and my hips are 41" so I am a classic pear shape. Based on my measurements, I ordered these shorts in a size 8. I own the Freda shorts in the Ginko print in a size 8 and the Freyah Pants in the Lotus pattern in a size 6. The shorts are a good length but as others have mentioned, they are a little tight around my butt/thighs. Thankfully, these pants have some stretch to them so I do not feel restricted while riding, I really only notice this tighter fit while standing around. Due to the tighter fit in my hips/butt, I opted not to wear a belt the first couple of times I wore these shorts but I think I will going forward so that the shorts sit properly. One of the times I did not wear a belt, these shorts sat a little lower during my ride and the snaps popped open when I reached down to grab my water bottle. I was able to quickly snap them back but this happened several times during my ride. I'm not sure if stronger snaps would prevent this or if it was because the shorts sat a little lower because I was not wearing a belt. In my dream world, these shorts would have an adjustable velcro waist so I could dial in the fit a little more without a belt.

TDLR: These shorts are awesome and well made, sizing requires a little extra calculation if you are curvy.
