Our review

Roomy yet well fitting and thoughtfully designed shorts – only the disappointing liner prevents us scoring these even higher
Skip to view product specifications

With the word ‘enduro’ printed inside the waist, Alpinestars’ intentions for these shorts are clear from the outset.


The fit is fairly loose but the tailored cut means the legs follow your body’s contours rather than flapping around and looking overly baggy. Movement is free and easy, and the lightweight, high quality material feels great to ride in.

Alpinestars has put some thought into the pockets too, providing open hip pockets that are big enough for a phone and wallet and come in handy off the bike, as well as smaller zipped pockets that sit a little further down the leg. Zipped vents can be opened to allow extra air through, although the thin, stretchy crotch panel and rear waist vent already do a good job of stopping you overheating.


The padded liner supplied with the shorts was an uncomfortable disappointment, but look past that and these are top notch.
