Summary: Great freeride shorts offering great ventilation, rugged construction and a removable liner.


Rugged and comfortable

The Manual Freeride Bicycle Shorts from Alpinestars are extremely comfortable, ventilated and remarkably rugged. These loose fitting pants have a removable mesh liner with chamois and are designed with the serious mountain biker in mind.

What makes these pants so comfortable and rugged are the intelligently positioned vent and stretch panels. The mesh panels located in the thighs helps to keep you cool while the synthetic fabric of the liner helps to draw moisture away from your skin to keep you dry and comfortable. Special spandex panels located in the crotch and towards the back of the pants help them to stretch as required making for a comfortable ride and contributing greatly to the durability of the product. Also contributing to the durability of the shorts is the seat area which is seamless and reinforced with an abrasion resistant material.

The shorts’ removable stretch Lycra liner is connected by buttons and features a fantastic chamois crotch pad. The liner can even be used with other shorts, enabling you to turn any pair of comfortable shorts into freeride shorts

Alpinestars Manual Shorts also feature two big cargo pockets for carrying miscellaneous items and a convenient media pocket with a conduit for your headphone cord. The waist includes hook-and-loop adjustment straps for a custom fit.

These shorts are available in sizes ranging from 28 to 40 and come in a variety of colors; including, black, chocolate, dark grey and woodbine green.
