The Troy Lee Connect Shorts are a happy medium between mountain bike shorts and everyday shorts. The cut is mountain bike-specific, and the front media pocket is designed to keep your mobile device safe and accounted for without letting it interfere while you ride. The polyester/spandex blend even has a little stretch built in, so your range of motion won't be limited on the trail. Also, the main body fabric breathes well and wicks moisture to keep you dry and comfortable during the ride.

Back in town, however, the Connect's styling doesn't shout "bro!" quite like typical mountain bike shorts. Refreshingly subtle is the description that comes to mind. The drawstring closure lets you get the fit exactly how you want it and allows you to dictate your shorts' ride height and avoid any unfortunate wardrobe malfunctions.

Good for about anything

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6'0"
  • Weight: 200lbs

Zippered front pocket isn't huge, it can hold my phone which is about all I want to carry. The material of these shorts is awesome for warm weather riding. Super light and stretchy. I bought a 34 for biking but may buy a 36 for more casual wear. I could use these shorts for just about anything. The zippered back pocket is a plus. The two front pockets are OK but not deep by any means.
I don't use the drawstring on the size 34 they are a perfect fit.

Only Shorts I Wear

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 32
  • Height: 5'8"
  • Weight: 180lbs

Got one pair, then another, and now, yes another. These shorts are awesome! They are light, comfortable, and stretch well. You can wear a bib under them no problem. They keep you cool and more importantly, comfortable. These shorts have stood the test of time and I will continue to purchase the Troy Lee Connect Shorts. Thank you Troy Lee!

Awesome Casual Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I wear these shorts more for casual use. They are super lightweight and stretchy. The fabric is also very soft and does a great job at wicking moisture.

Great for both riding and casual wear

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

These are my favorite riding shorts. They are a super lightweight and stretchy material so comfort is top notch. The drawstring closure is actually pretty nice because there's some good adjustment range for getting the waist fit dialed. There are two normal side pockets, and two back pockets. There is a zipper in one of the side pockets and one of the back pockets. Therefore there are no issues whatsoever keep a phone, wallet, cards, cash, etc. secure. I've successfully worn these shorts with knee pads. Even though they don't go past the knees, they are stretchy and fit loose enough where knee pads are not a problem. These shorts have doubled as board shorts for me for days at the lake and swimming. I have no hesitation wearing them as casual shorts as well because they aren't super flashy like other riding shorts can be. Highly recommended. True to size.

Great for Riding and for Around Town

  • Size Bought: 36
  • Height: 5'9"
  • Weight: 210lbs

I have these in both black and denim. They almost seem more like board shorts than riding shorts. But I use them for everything. Fit great, look great, nice and light.

Love these shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 34
  • Height: 5'11"
  • Weight: 190lbs

While I haven't worn these shorts riding, they are awesome for casual use. The material has good stretch, lightweight and breathable. There are lots of pockets, including a zippered front pocket and rear pocket. I don't have a preference either way for the drawstring, but it's sewn preventing it from moving around or getting lost in your laundry machine. Waist also has a zipper and button closure in addition to the drawstring. Sizing is true to size in my opinion, maybe slightly large though so if you are in between sizes I would size down.

Great Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 38
  • Height: 6'3"
  • Weight: 135lbs

I purchased a size 38 thinking they would run a bit small. They barely stay up, a 36 would have done it and I'm 6'3" and 235#

Great quality, look awesome and the zippers keep all my crap in my pockets. You should get these shorts.
