Fox Racing Ranger Cargo 12in Shorts - Men's

Short pants, long travel.

Don't let the Ranger Cargo 12in Shorts' mellow, off-trail presence mislead you, as Fox Racing built them to ride anything, anywhere. From lush northern forests to desert singletrack, the Ranger Cargos' two-way stretch poly shell ensures cool, dry comfort and virtually unlimited range of motion.

Out on the trail, Fox treats you to a six-panel, moisture-wicking, breathable liner with an Evo chamois that provides support and relief from saddle irritation. The anatomic liner is detachable, allowing you to pair it with knickers and pants for cooler climates. As for storage space, the Ranger Cargos have plenty, including two pedal-friendly hand pockets for quick access to electronic devices, one zipped cargo for secure storage, and a flapped cargo for streamlined convenience to nutrition.

Great MTB shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 36

The shorts are very comfortable and the material is great. The chamios are the perfect thickness for my liking. The zipper did break on the second use, I'm bummed about that.

Very good short for the price. I have the Black and "red". They are not DH long, but not XC tight either.
My only complaint is that the "Red" Short is much closer to Orange in person.

Best mountain biking shorts.

First off these shorts are durable, breathable and comfortable. The liner is not bad and has proven its durability. The pockets are a plus 4 of them so carrying keys wallet or clif bars not an issue. So good bought 7 pairs in different colors.

Good for the bike park

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

Unlike my other fox shorts where the waist constantly pops open, these have a really nice elastic band that flexes as your body moves. They are great for the bike park but I think that they might fall down a little during XC. More testing required...

Not the most confront, the Velcro in the waste band itches your waste..
