    Freedom for the next bend.

    The Dakine Men's Derail Short is sure to satisfy your corner-drifting, drop-hucking antics with its relaxed fit and fluid flexibility. Catering to freeride junkies and downhill racers, the Derail's longer cut and specially patterned knees easily slide over pads when you're shuttling with friends and hitting lift-accessed downhills at the resort. Four-way stretch fabric ensures unrestricted movement for bombing descents and sending hits in the bike park. Rounding things out, interior waistline adjustments provide a secure fit over your favorite liner shorts while the zippered side pocket handily carries snacks and small riding accessories.

    Good shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    When I bought these shorts I was surprised on how comfortable these shorts were and the material is great. Very happy with my purchase. Went with a size 32 and I was on the fence about sizing up, still happy with the 32 but I probably would of gone with a size up. 32's are my normal size I wear and these feel a bit snug.

    Good, basic all around short

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 34

    I wore these shorts for a week straight on a recent trip to Canada. We did everything from pedal laps to laps in bike park. They withstood plenty of carnage on that trip. I have 32

    The side pocket keeps an iPhone from flapping around too much.


    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small

    Overall great short. Not super stiff and as uncomfortable as some full on DH shorts but definitely tougher fabric than your typical all-mountain git-up. Fabric stretches in the right places and they are a good length to not hang up on knee pads. No complaints. I typically wear a 32 in everything and got these in a 34 and they fit well/snug.
