An on-going design project, the Race Shorts are uniquely engineered and further refined for out-and-out performance.

We set out to craft the lightest and most advanced race shorts for uncompromised speed and comfort when it matters most. Version 5.0 continues to build on this aspiration, making sure our classic split short silhouette is bang up to date with laser-cut hems, an integrated waistband and a game-changing liner that’s shaped, bonded and soft against the skin. They’re built in a new, highly technical, ultra-lightweight, 4-way stretch fabric that tops the scales at 70g in size M – so light you’ll barely know you’re wearing them.

Fit for race day, we’ve experimented with a streamlined design that favours minimal weight and bulk, hence just two small pockets for essentials.


Minimises the weight of the garment, improves comfort and prevents the fraying of hems.

Stretch Woven Fabric

Fabric construction that adds elasticity and enhances comfort in structured garments.


Low-weight fabric and minimised construction ensures you hardly notice the garment on the run.


Efficient design that optimises freedom of movement whilst in the running motion.
