Sweltering deserts to subtropical forests.

From the parched, sun-scorched desert surrounding Moab to ripping flow trails in Florida's subtropical forests, the Troy Lee Designs Men's Skyline Air Short Shell keeps you utterly cool and comfortable with its ventilated open-cell mesh. Coolmax polyester rapidly wicks moisture off your body for evaporative cooling as you work up a sweat in oppressive heat. This quick-drying material is combined with an ample dose of stretch, so you can pedal freely and move without restriction, especially considering the short's more relaxed fit and feel.

This particular version of the Skyline Air Short is the shell only, meaning you'll have to pair it with your favorite padded liner shorts to get the benefits of plush support on the trail. It remains securely fastened to your body with its adjustable waist tabs and grippy silicone lining along the inner-waistband. Furthermore, you'll find two zippered pockets with ample space for tossing a spare energy bar, your car keys, and extra cash, should you pedal over the local pub afterwards.

  • Troy Lee's go-to short for sweltering heat and humidity
  • Open-cell mesh construction promotes cooling airflow
  • Coolmax polyester wicks moisture for a cool, dry feel
  • Added Lycra maximizes its stretch while riding fast
  • Zippered hand pockets store essentials on the trail
  • Grippy silicone waistband lining prevents slipping
  • Hook-and-loop waist adjusters fine-tune its fit

You get what you pay for...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are great shorts to go riding in the summer. The mesh front is awesome and the pockets are mesh as well. I don't know if they are the most durable especially if you ride through narrow trails that have plants/tree branches that could tear your shorts, but I don't usually go on very narrow trails/spaces...so they work for me! As for durability...no tears yet and I've put a lot of rides in. So, I'm not worried about that. If you want more breathable shorts than these...then you're gonna have to pay more for it. As for the length...they go down just above the knees and the peace sign is a nice touch. ✌️

Nice Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

Hawaii is hot and humid, I was definitely looking forward to having a breathable shell for mtb rides. My initial impression is are a tad cooler than my other TLD shorts but maybe not as much as I had hoped. I'm not returning them by any means and I'll still reach for these first on warm days. Just temper your expectations a bit. Everything in Hawaii is either up or down, so you may not feel much of a difference climbing (or I'm just not that fast). Once you get moving though, they'll definitely let a little air flow and cool you off a little. Being TLD, they fit well, have just enough length to reach my knees, seem well made, and comfortable all around. I appreciate the zippered pockets too over previous editions of Skyline shorts.

Awesome!

Used them a few times out on the trails! Love them!

How to Measure:
Jersey measurements on this chart represent measurements of the actual garment and not of the person wearing it. To figure out your size: take a piece that fits you well, lay it down flat, and whip out the tape measure. Compare your results with the numbers here, and choose your size accordingly.
1/2-Chest:
Measure across the broadest part of the front of your chest, at armpit level, keeping the measuring tape parallel to the ground.
Front Length:
While standing upright, measure the distance between your waist (typically at navel or top of the hip bone level) and the top of your shoulder, to the left or right of your spine.
Sleeve Length:
Standing up straight with your arms at your sides, measure from the base of your neck at the center of your spine, along the top of your shoulder and down to your wrist bone, along the outside of the arm.
Waist:
Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
