Ready to rip.
A back-to-basics riding short, Dakine's Pace Shorts pack in all the comfort and performance of shorts that cost three times as much. Dakine built the shorts with a tough polyester and spandex fabric. Since nylon is already abrasion-resistant, Dakine was able to use a light 145-gram weave.
Reinforced stitching throughout key areas of stress ensure long wear, and a four-way stretch back panel and gusseted crotch add durability — as well as an unlimited range of motion. The Pace shorts come with front pockets to take care of valuables.
The Dakine Pace Shorts come in even sizes 30 to 40 and are available in Red, Blue, Camo, or Black.

Simple, stretchy, superduper.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I've been rocking the Pace shorts for the past couple years because of their breathability & stretchtasticness. They end up serving as my go-to hiking/trail running/workout shorts due to their light weight and range of motion. I really dig them while on the bike because they won't get caught on anything...but this does come with a compromise: the inseam is short enough (14") that my knees are exposed..so if you aren't confident enough to show your patellas off, you may prefer the 8Track or Descent shorts ;)
The lightweight material is also very quick to dry...bonus.
