Size Guide Mens MTB Bottoms


As people carry their fat and muscle in different places the stretchy fabrics we use, combined with the design means that each short size can accommodate a variety of different body shapes and sizes.

We have used our FLAB sizing for road cycling gear to give existing customers an idea of how the shorts fit as well as a size chart.

For best results pick a size which best corresponds to your waist at its largest point (belly). If you have chunky thighs and legs we suggest the larger of the sizes, if you have slim legs, you're probably better with the smaller size.

If you need help with a sizing suggestion drop us an email

Our outdoor shorts and trousers are great for biking, MTB gravel or walking and have a stretch tummy panel which should fit high around the waist and a gently tapered leg.

When trying on, adopt cycling position and 'wriggle about' to see how the waistband works for you

The MTB Trouser fabric has less stretch than that in our shorts therefore the trouser sizing is coming up smaller and you may need to go up a size in the trousers, depending on how the shorts fit you.
