Fox RacingLivewire Short - Men's

Spark your XC ride.

From sprinting up steep hillsides to bursting from tight corners, cross-country rides are more aerobic-intensive than standard trail jaunts. Just the short for pedaling rapidly across long swaths of trail, the Fox Racing Men's Livewire Short offers a slim, race-specific fit that maximizes response when you're stomping on the gas.

Its pedal-friendly disposition is complemented by the four-way stretch of TruMotion fabric. This buttery-smooth, stretchy fabric works to keep you blissfully cool by pulling sweat where it can easily evaporate. Further aiding in its cooling competency, laser-cut ventilation holes actively circulate air to prevent overheating on stifling summer rides.

Unlike baggies requiring a separate liner short, the Livewire features a detachable liner with COMP chamois comprised of triple-density foam for plush shock absorption. This chamois has antimicrobial properties for lasting freshness, even when you're sweating profusely on your bike. It's four-way stretch in nature, meaning it'll conform to your body without feeling like bulky padding underneath.

Too light weight??

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: medium

True to size with a very good chamois. The outer short is very light weight. Great for freedom of movement, great for hot Austin weather, but I question how they'll hold up in a solid fall. So far so good in 2 low speed low side falls. N o holes...yet.

Great fit (slim but not too slim), comfortable chamois and great color options. You can't go wrong with this short.
