Treat yourself to some versatility.

Rip straight from the trailhead down to the brew pub with the crew without skipping a beat when you're wearing the Sportful Men's Giara Over Short. Crafted from a flexible four-way stretch fabric, this short keeps you moving without restriction both on and off of your bike, while the DWR-treatment does its part to shed moisture and repel dust and dirt that generally accompanies days on singletrack.

Sportful equipped this short with lightweight mesh inserts and an internal fabric structure to boost moisture management for cool, dry comfort on more demanding rides. Its semi-fitted cut provides you with a stylish silhouette off of your bike, and the subtle reflective details give you an added touch of visibility for rides in low-light conditions.

  • Casual looks hide this trail short's techy performance
  • Stretchy fabric promotes a natural range of motion
  • DWR-treatment helps repel moisture, dirt, and dust
  • Semi-fitted design travels well anywhere
  • Subtle reflective details give you added visibility
  • Multiple pockets bring along all of your trail essentials

Baggies that aren't so baggy

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

These shorts are great for people who don't want to be in a full lycra kit, but also don't want to feel like you're swimming in your shorts. With the tighter fit, and casual pocket styling these are great for grabbing post ride dinner or drinks.

The material is on the lighter side, it's breathable, but feels like would hold up against snags and crashes better than a lycra kit. These have plenty of stretch allowing you freedom to pedal and move around on your bike while moving up or down a trail.

Nice Blend Between Casual & Technical

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 2XLarge

I haven't worn baggie shorts in nearly two decades. But after overhauling my old Stumpjumper to tool around town I needed a pair of shorts that could bridge the gap between casual wear and technical performance. The Sportful Giara Over Short ticks all the boxes and then some. Perfect inseam length. Great stretch fabric and breathable mesh on the upper back side. Fabric dries quickly if you get caught in a storm. I ordered Black and the color leans slightly more to a really dark charcoal grey. It has adjustable velcro straps that works well, but for a greater lifespan I think the adjustment system could have been upgraded a bit to an internal adjustable belt. Pair this short with the Pearl Izumi Select Liner Short and you have a winning combo for comfort. This was a great recommendation from my Competitive Cyclist sales rep. Otherwise I would have overlooked this combo and lost out.

Thank you for the great review Doug!

casual shorts

    I'm not a huge wearer of baggies but like having some to throw in to certain rides. I liked the slight stretch to them and the were comfortable driving to the trail and riding. I didn't love the velcro waist adjustment. I have a 29" waist and need to adjust the size S in. This exposes some of the velcro and it kind of catches on itself. I really didn't notice it much when riding but it was there. I've only been riding them about a month but they've held up well through a couple washings now.

    casual shorts

    nice shorts, but not great

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

    these shorts at first impression are nothing to write home about, nothing fancy, no cool features, they are just shorts. not a huge fan of the super stretchy materiel, I've caught the fabric on my saddle a few times annoyingly, and with this stretch making it hard to get things in and out of your pockets and even hard to open the two zip pockets on these shorts. a cool feature that i didn't find out until after jumping into a river after a long ride is that they are 100% water resistant. the water just beads right off. i was dry in about 2 minutes after being in the river.

    Great Find

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

    These are my first piece of Sportful clothing and I have to say I was not let down. Coming from the same family as Castelli they fit true to size. I love these shorts because they sit right above the knee when you are riding. This makes it perfect for both mountain biking and gravel grinding. They are casual enough to wear to the bar after the ride as well. I love the adjustable waistband to dial in the fit.

    Overall, I would highly recommend!

    New favorite pair of shorts

      Just came into a pair of these, and I can't get enough of em! They fit exactly how a pair of MTB/Gravel shorts should; you don't want em flapping around, but they can't be constrictive. As you'd expect from Sportful, all of the materials are high quality, and the subtle styling means that they'll easily work for casual wear.
