Men's Access Short

The Trail Access Short is intended to go a bit further afield. 180gsm stretch woven DWR treated fabric is more robust and durable than the flyweight Gravel short fabric. The cut of this short is slightly longer and more generous and has an overall more relaxed fit. Belt loops and 4 zippered pockets keep things secure with stowage at a maximum.

Materials & Care

Fabric Content

88% Nylon / 12% Elastane W

Made in IT

Caring for your cycling gear properly will extend its life and maintain its performance, fit and quality. Its important to consider these instructions carefully. While we stand behind the quality of our apparel, not adhering to these instructions will void our warranty against manufacturing & defects. 

We strongly recommend washing your new gear before wearing it. Youll find that your apparel will soften, and fit & comfort will improve after washing - especially with bibs & shorts. 

Machine wash cool, 86F (30C) with like colors: Cooler temps maintain better longevity for your apparel. Like colors, especially lights, will remain more vibrant when washed with like colors. 

Use mild detergent. Do not bleach or dry clean: Strong detergents & bleach can break down the fibers and elastane in the garment, dramatically reducing its life. 

Close all fastenings: this goes also for other garments mixed in with your cycling apparel. Velcro closures or clasps can catch on stitching or trim and damage your garments. 

Lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry: Do not put your cycling apparel in the dryer. Even on low heat. Dont do it. Heat can damage fabric, elastic and heat transfer logos very easily. Lycra (Elastane) is used throughout our garments to provide compression and support and is susceptible to damage from heat and can irreparably damage your apparel.

Great fit, durable and functional pockets!

Nice shorts, dont fit

I'm 5'11", 160lbs, and the sizing chart has me at top end of small and bottom end of medium. The small size does not even come close to fit. I wish they did, they're nicely constructed.

Do-it-all outdoor shorts!

Durable and comfortable shorts. I like the style enough that I wear these on and off the bike. Great for hikes and climbs too!

Lightweight and breezy, great fit and features. Love those shorts!

I knew those shorts were good, but was pleasantly surprised after my first few rides on them. The fabric is lightweight, which allows me to move easily around the bike for climbs or downhills. The large pockets are ideally located for my phone, or to stash my gloves. The fit is great. Those are my new favorite MTB shorts for sure. Sizing runs a touch small in my experience. I'm typically between medium and large, and size Large is a great fit for me.

Perfect hard wearing but comfortable short

Comfortable on and off the bike. More robust than the trail shorts without being harsh like offerings from other companies. Have stood up well to sandstone abrasions. Would wear for a long trail ride or enduro racing. Pocket layout work well and gives easy access with one hand. Velocio really onto a winner here- I wish there were more colors- maybe a full pant?
