Raceface DH shorts review

Most downhill shorts are too stiff to be comfortable beyond a few runs, but these can be worn all day long. The soft polyester-faced Cordura fabric is intricately cut so it drapes around your legs perfectly.

Expensive, but the most comfortable and durable all-round shorts available

Most downhill shorts are too stiff to be comfortable beyond a few runs, but these can be worn all day long. The soft polyester-faced Cordura fabric is intricately cut so it drapes around your legs perfectly from new, and the fit is fabulous despite minimal elastic or stretch panels.

Despite their crashproof durability, massive zipped thigh vents and mesh liners mean we’ve worn these shorts all day in the triple-figure temperatures of the Nevada desert without roasting our meat and veg.
They’re expensive though, and they need padded liner shorts underneath for day-long comfort, but they’re our favourite hardcore do-it-all shorts by far and well worth the investment.
