Our review

Top notch freeride-style short that flashes its boarding heritage
Skip to view product specifications

If quiet style is your thing then a black short with electric blue lining that shows in subtle flashes through the leg vents will definitely light your fire. But be assured it’s not all about good looks – the superb fit makes the 8 Track ride well too.


Much of that is down to the waist, which adjusts by pulling forwards, with the effect of drawing everything close around the back. Combined with the high back and stretch panel it makes for one secure fit with little potential for catching.


The mid-weight outer fabric is lined with a soft wicking mesh, which really does make a difference when things get warm. The leg length is good even for tall types, so sling a belt through the loops and wear them off the bike too.
