Dakine 8 Track Short -

Everything about the Dakine 8 Track Short screams DH, and it won't leave you wanting while you lap the chairlift. Dakine thought of everything when it put together this sturdy nylon canvas short, and you'll be loving that all day long—and probably over beers into the evening, too.

The most obvious plus for the 8 Track short is the burly nylon canvas fabric. It can stand up to season after season of serious DH abuse. Dakine also used reinforced stitching through key areas, so you won't be explaining any wardrobe malfunctions to angry parents, frightened children, or other authorities after your next ride. The gusseted crotch, rear stretch panel, and adjustable waist tabs give you the fit and freedom you need, and special patterning at the knees is designed to fit over your pads. 

The 8 Track also has belt loops for added security, and there are a ton of pockets to take care of your valuables. The Dakine 8 Track Short comes in sizes Small through XX-Large. It's available in Charcoal, Black, Octane, and Kelly.

The Dakine 8 Track Short initially appears to be a very basic and conservative short. Look a little closer and you will notice its many features. Zippered inner leg vents give you adjust airflow to your liking. The exterior side waist bands allow you to quickly adjust the fit on or off the bike. The Dakine 8 Track Short was designed to fit over pads at the knees. Reinforced stitching throughout key stress zones make the Dakine 8 Track Short able to withstand the seductive abuse that is freeride mountain biking.

Dakine 8 Track Short Review:


Make sure you buy a size up these run very small. I wear a size 32/33 and the medium fit like lycra.
