After a week of inhaling dust to and from work, you see the skies open up and deliver beautifully tacky trails. You and your DAKINE Women's Tempest Short can't wait to tear it up. Dakine designed the Tempest Short to be cool and comfortable. Lightweight, stretchy polyester construction can handle all the abuse you can dish out while letting your skin breathe and providing a full range of motion.
Dakine built the Tempest short with a four-way stretch polyester blend. Reinforced stitching through key stress areas ensures several seasons of riding. A gusseted crotch adds durability and a broader range of motion.
Hook-and-loop waist adjustments allow you to dial in a perfect custom fit and a women-specific cut flatters your figure without the boxy look of a men's short. Two front pockets carry your riding essentials.
The Dakine Ridge Short comes in four sizes: Small to X-Large. It's available in Black, Charcoal, and Watermelon.
The unlined DAKINE Tempest Bike Shorts are cut with a women-specific fit intended to look and feel good while you tear up the mountain.

I really enjoy riding in all weather in these shorts, they are breathable and when caught in a storm, the material dries very quick. I love the length, they are a bit longer than my other DAKINE biking shorts.
I love these shorts! They are sweet for riding and I also wear them casually.
These have a nice light and stretchy fabric that seems like it would be great for biking all summer. The rise was a little tall for my taste though, so I sent them back. For reference I'm 173lbs, 5'5" and would wear an XL in dakine shorts if their rises weren't so tall.
Very lightweight, 'slippery' material. Makes a lot of noise! Nice length, though. And, I like the lack of belt loops. I'm a size 4 pants, and the Small in these shorts were a touch too tight, and the Medium was too baggy for my liking.
