Fox Racing's Attack Shorts have a long history of checking the right boxes progressive trail riders demand. In keeping with that tradition, the Attack Q4 Shorts bring high-tech, four-way stretch fabric and an interior-adjustable waistband to the mountain.

The Q4's polyester and spandex four-way stretch main body won't bind or limit motion, and the high level of breathability means that moisture has plenty of opportunity to move away from your skin before becoming an annoyance—and best of all, the Attack Q4 shell can be worn post-ride without a damp loincloth hampering trailhead vibes.

Fox Racing's Attack Q4 Shorts - Men's have two zipped hand pockets for secure storage. They come in Orange, Grey, Fatigue Green, and Black, with even sizes available from 30 through 40.

Lots of good, but...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

If you started out a roadie and wearing Lycra, you know the pitfalls of mountain biking in baggy shorts. They're baggy, and saggy. I'd agree with the first reviewer: these shorts are light, breathable, stretchy, and durable. The insert is good quality and works well. In fact, the whole short is made really well - good zippers, good materials, nice snaps up front, good fit standing up straight in them. But get on the saddle and you understand that saggy part above. I don't think mountain bike clothing makers have figured out the baggy thing yet. Lycra, of course, grabs you all over and therefore resists falling toward your knees when you're moving around on the saddle. And a bib even betters that equation. But a baggy short can only grab you in one place, around the waist. So the various manufacturers have focused on fastening systems that cinch up around this area. But I haven't found anything that works so far. And I'm afraid Fox hasn't altered my record on that count with the Attack Q4 short. The velcro fasteners inside do tighten things up around the waist. But they leave pleats around the outside of the waistband, which I find a little uncomfortable. And although the shorts fit nicely while standing on my feet, moving around on the saddle still gradually drags the shorts lower on my body so that soon enough the hems of the shorts are flapping in the wind around my knees like sheets hung to dry on a clothesline. I'm constantly looking for a straight so I can stand on my pedals and hike the short back up around my mid-section. I'm a 32 waist, and the 32 fits well. The cut is like a surf short, and they're stylish and comfortable to hang out in. I think it's a fundamental design flaw with baggies that keep them from serving the purpose well. Someone needs to engineer a better waistband, maybe. It's just unfortunate that I spent a chunk o' change on them to have to keep dragging them back into place periodically during a ride. (And they've just gone on sale!)

Responded on

Long-term update on this review: I've packed these things away indefinitely. If you start out a ride by hiking them high and then pin your rear end to the saddle until you get back to the start, they may work for you. But start moving around and down they come. They have pockets, too. Well, try putting something in there. When your hand hits the bottom the slight tug will undo the Velcro waist closures. I'll forgo modesty and keeping wearing my Lycra bibs a while longer until someone makes a short that doesn't fall south by simply wearing them.
