Highline Short

The Sombrio Highline Men’s Shorts are seriously lightweight and cool but they’re still miraculously way more comfortable than riding—and crashing—naked. Made with stretchy Quattro Flex fabric that lets you pedal like a fiend and get aggressive when you’re descending, the Highline’s perfect for ripping loamy lines in BC, shuttling the techy drops of Moab’s Porcupine Rim, or exploring whatever singletrack loops you happen to call home.

For obvious reasons, Sombrio skips any seams in the crotch area and reinforces all the high-stress areas with extra stitching to prevent blowouts when you’re miles from civilization (or in the middle of it, for that matter). Laser-cut ventilation lets heat escape and pulls much-needed air through the shorts while you ride, and there’s even a DWR coating to shed moisture when you’re ripping through tight trails on dewy early-morning laps.

  • Shorts built to push the limits of possible
  • Ultra-light Quattro Flex Lite doesn't weigh you down

I really wanted to like this short, but it just had size/fit issues. The crotch hangs down a good 3" when the short is at your natural waist and causes resistance to lifting your legs in a pedaling motion. The waist is very large for the size (I had to cinch the waist adjusters all the way down and normally wear a 32" jean), and it still felt like it was working its way down . Pockets and fly/snap were nice and I liked the light feel of the fabric, although I'd be worried about the durability of the butt.

I agree with you. Nice material/quality but fit is strange. I found the medium was too tight for me (32 inch waist), but it was tight in the weirdest way: across the butt and crotch. I suppose I could have ordered the large and tried it, but from the medium I had the feeling the large would be tight in the same areas. I'm guessing this line of clothing is meant for very skinny legged people.

Love 'em!

Fit:
True to size

Durable, comfy on and off the saddle, smart pocket placement and space. No complaints here, except for the blue color I bought (this applies to bike clothes in general though). It looks nice and crisp out of the package, but once you get grease and other stains on them, it's quite difficult to remove.

I'm 5'-9", and these shorts are the perfect length I was looking for, just over the knee standing, and they don't get caught over my knee when riding. They feel light weight over the legs, and very comfortable and secure around the waist. I like the fit so much I find myself wearing them a lot between rides too

Just like you have mechanic that is your go to guy, these are my go to shorts. They fit true to size, though Canadians seem to be tall and skinny so if you're a little shorter they might be a little long. My shorts are 8 years old and still look like new so they might have shortened them up over the years but I can always double check that if you are interested. The 4 way stretch is a great feature to have for those steep descents and you're off the back of the saddle or when you find yourself in an odd situation. The DWR is nice too To keep the fabric from absorbing all of your sweat. The waist tabs allow for a bit of adjustment too depending on the time of year you are riding or if you're letting a friend from out of town use them. Over the years the wear has been minimal and the construction has been good enough for me to still use them 8 years later. The venting is also just enough for those rides, long or short, in the heat. I never found an issue with being too cold. I am 5'8", 170lb with a 30" inseam and own the mediums. The fit is pretty spot on
