As far as women’s kit goes, shorts seem to be the most difficult to get right. However, with brands producing more options, it’s becoming easier to find that perfect pair.
Baggy, long, short, tight, relaxed, thick, thin… we all have our preference for clothing that fits us just how we like, while still wanting to look good on the trails.
Up until recently, we women have been faced with a serious lack of selection for riding kit, in fact many of us have resorted to men’s wear, and even children’s. Thankfully, this all seems to be changing with an increasing number of brands broadening their once limited selection.
We’ve rounded up some of our favourite women’s MTB shorts on offer at the moment…
Madison Women’s DWR Shorts
Madison Clothing has one of the most extensive ranges of women’s MTB around. Offering top quality apparel which is durable, even after miles of fun with the British weather.
The DWR shorts are hard wearing and can handle a lot of trail abuse. Waterproof, windproof and pretty much bombproof, these shorts are tough but surprisingly stretchy. Without movement restriction, these shorts have zipped vents down the sides of the leg, to allow for temperature control, and adjustable tabs at the waist to dial in that fit.
Colours: Aqua/black – Red/black
Sizes: UK 8 – UK 16
