Budget shorts that are best suited to casual riding
Skip to view product specifications

DHB’s Earnleys come with an integral (sewn in) liner. While we like this sort of construction for the lighter feeling it gives, it’s harder to get right in terms of fit – needing an impeccably cut shell.


At first glance, the simple pocket configuration and mix of lightweight fabric and more durable panels ticks all the right boxes. But the shorts look less flattering on, and are best suited to casual cruising.


The lack of shaping at the waist, which relies on elastic to pull it in, means there’s a tendency for everything to move in a downward direction (you need to add a belt), taking the liner with it. It felt to us like only the snugness of the leg gripper was keeping them up.
