Ripping down singletrack is where you find your calling in life, and what better way to do it than with the confidence and coverage supplied by the Ride 100% Airmatic Women's Shorts? These stretchy shorts are ready for rallying berms and tail-whipping off of rollers thanks to their dialed in construction, with a gusseted crotch that offers free range of motion, and knee-length fit that offers room for pads, in case you go down hard.
The Airmatic Shorts are easy to dial in for your perfect fit, thanks to the adjustable tabs at the waist, and liner-free construction that allows you to toss in your favorite chamois before hitting the trail.

When I have these on I don't even notice...they don't sag at my waste, they don't bind at my thighs, they don't hike where they shouldn't hike.
The material is very lightweight, which is awesome for my everyday Park City style riding--climb to descend to climb to descend. I don't wear them when I ride the bike park, however. They aren't durable enough for that kind of riding.
I get asked at least once, nearly overtime I ride, "who makes those shorts" and if I like them, "because the look great".
I hope 100% makes a burlier version in a similar cut next year.
I am just at the cusp b/t a small and medium, but went medium.
Comfy, Stretchy & Long
These are my second pick for riding shorts this season, right behind the IXS Sever. These are longer, down to the knees. Which I like for covering knee pads while riding. The legs are a little wider so they sometimes feel baggier on my chicken legs. I was in between a small & medium so went with the medium. 5â7â 38â hips...the small felt too snug in the hip area but I tend to wear my shorts lower down on my hips rather than my waist. They were great all winter but I did notice the waist would shift around while riding in a hip pack. Wasnât a huge deal but it did make me feel a little twisted. Side pocket is awesome for phone and other things and super duper stretchy. Plus I love the color options.
Love the color and they are lighterweight than they appear in the photos. Pocket placements are key.
