The Skyline Short from Troy Lee Designs is quite possibly the best value in a trail riding short available. Featuring a dialed fit, quality construction and materials, it still manages to come in at only $70.00. With many similar models priced at over $100, it’s a stand out value. Even better, it has minimal branding with a number of colorways to choose from.
I’ve been rocking a black and red theme with my Santa Cruz Nomad build, with red grips and a red SDG Bel Air Saddle, so acquiring a few kits to match was a priority. Before heading out for a session at the Tamarancho flow trail I shot a quick laydown of the day’s garb.
