As you'll learn quickly if you hit the lifts without body armor, one does not just drop into enduro runs without protection. Next time around, make sure to kit up with a pair of Troy Lee Designs Men's LPS 7605 Protection Shorts under your baggies and increase your chances of making it to the end of the day unscathed. With protective panels lining the sides and inner thighs, these shorts offer extended coverage to fend of bumps and bruises from trail debris and bucking saddles. Inside, an integrated chamois pad boosts protection and comfort with soft and supportive padding for grinding out transition climbs in the saddle.
- Thigh protection with an integrated chamois
- Padding across the outer and inner thighs protects legs

- Q & A
Works for what it is intended for......
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: Medium
- Height: 5'8"
- Weight: 200lbs
I'm 5'8" 200lb, 34 waist, bought a large but had to exchange it for a medium. The medium fit great and was comfortable while riding. The seat pad is pretty much useless if your on a ride longer than an hour, that's the reason for the four stars. Other than that a good liner with moderate protection.
Great for what you want them for
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Use them for Enduro or downhill rides, they are sturdy enough to protect you on falls, but stay away from it on regular XC days since it will be an overkill.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: small
- Height: 5'10"
- Weight: 170lbs
FYI: Im 170 lbs, 5' 10", w/ a 32 inch waist and the smalls fit perfect...The mediums were too long and baggy.
These might be a little much if you're doing a lot of climbing but for shuttling or DH laps from the chair they are great.
Im looking for a good pair of Troy Lee padded shorts in the seat/butt area...do these have this also or is there another pair you can suggest? Thanks -Jimmy
Hey Jimmy - these shorts have protective padding as well as an integrated chamois. As far as protective shorts these are really good. If you are looking to get something with more minimal padding and no chamois check out the G Form Pro-X compression shorts.
What size waist is the XS,S,M and L? As the size info does not say
