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

Terracotta inspired by the pandemic houseplant craze. While we were all stuck inside, we looked for a little bit of outside to bring us comfort and joy. Our love of house plans has not subsided

Paradise was inspired by all the tropical vacations we were missing. The fauna of our favorite island destinations!

Road Trip There’s nothing quite like a road trip given the state of the world we were really relishing in these hand-drawn adventure vehicles.

Forest Fungi is a whimsical take on the fungi that grows in the thick forests of the northwest, adapted to give an abstract pattern on your new favorite bike short

Porcupette  It wouldn’t be a spring release without one of our favorite animal doodles. At the time of design, we were all feeling a little prickly while being housebound for far too many months!

I LOVE THESE SHORTS!

They are so comfy and are awesome to ride in. I am on the mountain bike team and these are the only shorts I wear anymore. I totally recommend them.
I am 12 years old and wear a size 0; 25-26 inch waist.
I have 3 pairs and want more!

Great shorts

When I first got these I thought they were a tad small. I got an 8. I’m 5’5.5 and weigh 140 and am curvy. I had another pair of this same size that fit fine. But after I wore them a couple times, they seemed to loosen up. My two pairs of Wild Rye shorts are my favorite. I’m always doing laundry because I pretty much only want to wear those when riding.

LOVE them but...

LOVE them but... a cinch waist would be great. I have thick thighs and a bike booty (and I am proud!) so I need to size up my shorts when they aren't adjustable. Not sure if wearing a belt is at all appealing on a bike ride. I like that they are a longer length, the pockets are perfect and my little porcupettes make me smile!

Love that there's no velcro!

Great fit, modern styling....think I'm going to throw away all the old bike shorts I own with velcro now. Purchased in the Forest Fungi Fog. Also bought the Freda 7" and both cuts are great for riding.

Other pieces you'll love
