    Rip earth's craggy contours.

    You may be adverse to streaking and even licking rocks like your kooky geology professor, but at least you can appreciate the earth's finest geology when you're ripping with the Dakine Men's Syncline Shorts. Designed for the rider who focuses on ditching popular trails for more unforgiving terrain, the Syncline eagerly pedals up and shreds down the steepest trails without holding you back.

    The Syncline Shorts comfortably fit over your favorite liner shorts (liner not included), also fitting over pads on more technical trails. Four-way stretch fabric enhances freedom of movement while resisting abrasion on the trail. Its DWR treatment repels oncoming showers and dewy trailside vegetation. Laser-cut mesh ventilation along the inner-legs and rear-yoke actively cool your lower body, especially on sweaty uphill climbs. Other key features include zippered hand pockets and adjustable waist tabs for a fine-tuned fit.

    Durable and Comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30"

    This is a solid trail / all mountain short. The material is stretchy enough to allow a full range of motion when pedaling and descending. These aren't the lightest weight shorts out there, but they are definitely more durable than some of the lighter options. The length is perfect for me, landing just above my knee but still providing enough coverage to wear with lightweight knee guards.

    Nice shorts but the sizing is off

      I am pretty much a standard 36" waist (6' and 215lbs) but the 36" waist shorts were 2" too small around the waist while being very baggy everywhere else. Materials and features were good and I wish Backcountry had the next size up in stock.

      Great short out the gate

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 36

      First few rides in these shorts have been nothing but perfect! Great fit, sizing, material, breathability, you name it! Absolutely love them. The have a great velcro strap on the inside to fine tune the waist and a perforated inseam on each leg for breathability.


      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size

      I got these as an upgrade for my bf- he used the POC shorts for years, but started to complain that they were too tight and just not comfortable. These are a HUGE upgrade- not only does he enjoy them for riding, he tends to hang out casually with them too. The material is nice and light- fairly soft to the touch too. They vent really well along the inner-leg mesh panels. And overall, they just fit much better- he can actually utilize the pockets and move freely, but they're not overly baggy. The waist fits true as well.

      I Do Like Em!

      I like these shorts a whole bunch. They are nice and stretchy so I am not restricted from doing enduro moves on my bike and dance moves off the bike. They have some nice ventilation on the thighs for when things heat up. They have two nice pockets with zippers so your keys don't fall out on the trail. I do wish they had a side or cargo pocket or maybe a rear butt pocket for carrying a bit more goodies off the trail but I still give these a 5 star rating.
