Show Description

Named for an epic poem about a ten-year siege, these all-mountain shorts suit similarly heroic, though perhaps slightly shorter rides. Lightweight and tough, they've been put through their paces in our gear testers’ favourite locales. This installment of the ever-evolving Iliad features a refined fit, a new fabric, and colour palette that works better with MTB jerseys.

  • Made of a woven double-weave, 88% polyester, with 12% spandex for epic stretch, and a DWR (durable water repellency) finish.
  • Front fly with zipper.
  • Adjustable waist with two low-profile custom buckles.
  • One zippered side pocket.
  • One covered rear pocket.
  • Ride position ready with a gusseted crotch and engineered seat.
  • Reinforced seams and bartacks at critical points.
