Our Defend Shorts combine durability and TruMotion® all-way stretch to keep you agile on the climb and covered on the descent. These shorts feature a longer inseam so you stay mobile while eliminating pad gap. The race-ratchet closure means you can make on-the-fly adjustments to get the fit just the way you like it. Ventilation is no afterthought either, with body-mapped laser perforations to increase airflow and keep you cool. Ride with Defend mountain bike shorts and push your limits on the toughest trails with confidence.
