Sizings are way off

I'm a 32" waist and a Medium wouldn't get close to buttoning up. So much so that I don't think a Large will fit either. The guide is done in hip size but needs to be updated and stated in waist size. The material is decent for the price. Would recommend but try on before you buy


Ordered a large for my son as it states it fits upto a 42” waste my husband tried them on and they only just got him and he’s a 34” waste. Who measure these shorts ?? !

I'm very sorry to read that the shorts are the incorrect size. For some reason, the sizing measures the hips and not the waist. Even though it says hips in the size chart, we will modify it to waist as this is the most common measurement known by our male customers. If he is a 34" waist then an XL would be the best size in these shorts.
Please return them to us for a refund or an exchange.

Too small for a large

Ordered large as take between 32 and 34 waist. When received they where too small. Went to my local store to try xl and they were too big. Refunded in the store and purchased elsewhere

okay shorts

Shorts are okay for cycling. however they can be slightly uncomfortable around the waist. they tend to crimple up around the waist area. i had to exchange one due to stitching coming loose. the pockets are not large enough to carry my mobile but are useful for smaller items. Gutted also that I paid full price £12.99 for a few of these shorts and now they are reduced to £7.99

Tight fit

I originally ordered a medium pair which were nowhere near my normal medium size.I had to send them back at a cost of £2.90 to exchange them for a pair of Large these are not a very good fit either but not bothering to send back at another cost of £2.90.

At Rockrider, we recommend adding undershorts with a pad under your 500 mountain bike shorts. The undershorts fit discreetly under your shorts. We must say: it is certainly more comfortable with a pad. The 500 and 900 mountain bike undershorts are compatible with the 500 mountain bike shorts.
