    Turn up the ruckus.

    Whether you're traversing the mountains of New Zealand, or lapping the local bike park on a sunny weekend, the Troy Lee Designs Ruckus Shorts are decked out and ready for the adventure. Their trail-ready attitude comes across strong with the generous inseam that stops below the knees with room for pads to keep you covered when you book it a little too quickly into a chunky rock garden, and four-way stretch that lets you throw your bike sideways off of a booter, or crush climbs without restriction. When the mercury starts to rise, unzip the inner thigh vents for active cooling when you're pushing it down the trail.

    Much like previous generations of the Ruckus short, the 2018 models are designed for shredding hard all over the mountain, but they might not look quite the same, as they saw some upgrades this year, with fit being the top priority. The front zipper now features a double-button low profile top that eliminates overlap when you're on the bars, while a redesign to the 2-way stretch rear panel forms a new shape that offers better articulation, without ditching the iconic TLD aesthetic. The waist saw more than just the back panel change, though, with new anatomic contouring that feels sleek and comfortable for all day shredding.

    Softening the sting of jarring trails and rocky outcroppings, the included chamois actively wicks moisture while dissipating vibration and reducing saddle abrasion. This chamois is removable, so you can rock your favorite padded liner short with the Ruckus. For a precise fit, adjustable waist tabs prevent this short from sliding off during fast movements. And because you rarely ride without gadgets, snacks, or tools, a variety of secure-stashing pockets make easy work of carrying all your riding accessories.

    • Bring on the ruckus with TLD's most popular MTB short
    • Stretch is improved with redesigned rear panel
    • New contoured waistband is more comfortable than before
    • Adjustable waist cinches to the perfect fit
    • Ample pockets for stashing riding essentials
    • Inner thigh vents let you drop heat on crushing climbs
    • Vented mesh on outside of legs lets fresh air in
    • AIR Liner cushions your sit bones on long rides

    Love the Stretch

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These are becoming some of my favorite shorts to ride in. Love how stretchy and light these things are. If you're looking for something comfortable go with this.

    Favorite Shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are by far my favorite bike shorts. Super durable while still being fairly lightweight. Pockets and venting are well thought out. Highly recommended!

    Nice Shorts, run large

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Awesome shorts, breath well and durable for days in the park or pedaling around. Runs larger than the previous year model - I bought a size 34 and at 5'11

    Pretty Good Short/Chamois

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    TROY LEE DESIGNS RUCKUS SHORT is an almost fantastic option for trail and enduro riding. The pocket options are fantastic with a zippered left full and a small zippered right lower pocket below an open larger pocket so you are good for anything storage wise. Material is more solid than wicking but that is preferred and the closure system on the front is good. The chamois is actually pretty amazing as the sizing is almost dead on and supports well though the short sizing is much larger fitting than the liner short which makes good for hip padding but feels overdone if not.

    Breathable Shorts with a Good Length

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    So these new TLD shorts are made from a lighter, stretchier material than the 17 model. They are definitely more comfortable but i think that comes a bit at the expense of the durability. On a steep section of trail i leaned back really far and my back tire nearly scraped a hole in the back of the shorts. I imagine if I took a really big fall the shorts would have gotten shredded.

    A welcome improvement

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34
    • Height: 6'2"

    I've been using primarily TLD riding gear for a long time, and this year's equipment is their best yet. These are the most comfortable riding shorts I own. They breathe really well, have two vents on the inseam that really do work once you're moving on the trail. As others have mentioned the 4-way stretch fabric allows great range of motion, and doesn't feel like your wearing a tarp like many other MTB specific shorts.
    The chamois is also a cut above what they have been stocking in their shorts in years past.

    Tough and Durable Stretch Fabric

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are my favorite mountain bike shorts. They are a great length sitting barely below the knee. I like the one zippered pocket for my phone and the other one without a zipper for quick access to my keys. My favorite feature is the tough and durable stretch material. The chamois fits great as well.

    Solid.

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

    These are pretty bad ass shorts. Material is awesome and great pocket placement and features. I rode in them the day I got them and was thoroughly impressed. It was a cool day and these shorts seemed a little warm even with the vents open but hardly noticeable. The chamois these came with is probably the best I've ridden in to date. I'm 6' and 170 lbs and pretty spot in on in a 32. These seemed just ever so slightly big on me but nothing that couldn't be dialed in with the waiste adjusters.

    Look and feel great

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great fit, I like the length of these shorts. Not too long but long enough to come over the knee. The material feels awesome and has some stretch to it that allows for unrestricted movement.
