Listen to the Siren song.
The Dakine Siren Short sits high on our list of all-time great women's mountain shorts. It's tough to fault a set of riding shorts with an adjustable waist, and stretch panels. But, once you factor in the updated women-specific fit, it's easy to see why these have become a perennial favorite for women who shred.
They're built out of a lightweight stretch polyester fabric that's easy to care for, and manages moisture effectively to keep you dry. The gusseted crotch, rear stretch panel, and adjustable waist tabs give you the fit and freedom you need, and special patterning at the knees is designed to fit over your pads. A large stretch panel at the rear of the short provides an unlimited range of motion and adds to the short's durability. There are also two front pockets to keep your valuables safe. And since the appearance is fairly casual, you won't be mortified if you find yourself at the local watering hole post-ride, and pre-clothing-change.
The Dakine Siren Short comes in four sizes, from Small, to X-Large, and in the colors Monaco, and Black.
