Tick off all the basics when worn as everyday shorts you can ride in

Though not designed specifically for cycling, the Contour shorts from Salomon are great for casual riding and for general use.


Made from a very light and stretchy soft shell fabric, they keep drizzle and wind at bay and are incredibly comfortable.

Our 34in waist size pair came up more like a 36in, so checking sizing is advised, especially because the fit is trim, but relaxed. A single popper and zippered fly make for easy access when it counts, and there are full belt loops. 

The hand pockets are a little small, but are vented so help promote better airflow. A zippered rear-facing pocket is big enough for a wallet or phone, which is handy. There’s also a slim pocket on the right thigh, suitable for lighter items.


The Contours are comfortable shorts, best used as everyday shorts that you can ride in, rather than specifically for cycling.
