An XC mountain bike short built with bike-specific features, The North Face Men's Silicate Short offers a removable chamois liner and a novelty herringbone-patterned stretch fabric. Made from polyester fabric treated with DWR, these bike shorts are water resistant, breathable, fast drying and moisture wicking to keep you cool, dry and comfortable on your ride. The removable liner shorts have a men’s-specific chamois and are treated with Sanitized® Silver to resist odors. Adjustable waist tabs give you the perfect fit while a raised high back waistband fights plumber crack. If conditions heat up and you need extra ventilation, mesh front hand pockets and rear mesh lined cape vents provide a breath of fresh air. Tough and ready for hard riding, these cycling shorts are built with reinforced stitching and bartacks in high-stress zones and have gripper elastic on the thighs to keep them in place. You’ll be ready to tackle the singletrack when you’re wearing The North Face Silicate Shorts for men.

Comfortable & Tough
January 18, 2012

Got these shorts almost a year ago and have been very satisfied. I'm 6'7" 240 with a 36in waist and the large fits me perfect I wear these without a belt. The built in chamois padding is a little awkward when just walking around but you really appreciate it during a long ride. These things have stood up to multiple wrecks and countless briars without so much as a tear thus far. In summary, comfortable, tough, functional, I highly recommend these shorts for biking.
