Go get lost. At least for a while. The Farside is our surface-adaptable summer short, built for all-road adventures and styled for stops at the watering hole.

Description

The Farside is a trim fit, 4-way stretch summer short built for bikepacking, gravel and all-road adventures. Made with a soft double-weave face for durability and a looped yarn at the back, the Farside wicks fast and won’t feel clingy, no matter how high the temperature climbs. For trail-side stops and evenings by the campfire, you’ll find easy-in dual side hand pockets, and to the right and slightly to the rear, an extra zippered pocket to stow your smartphone, light snacks, or even a folded map. Whether you need extra space or like to keep the essentials close at hand, the position of the zippered pocket allows for unrestricted pedaling, and a barely-there feeling even over the most demanding trails.

Clean finish laminated hems ensure smooth motion with every stroke, while reinforced crotch seams better resist the rough and tumble of the trail. Reflective details and a zippered fly complete the short.

    Great shorts

    Recently purchased a pair of Farside from Backcountry and have ridden them half a dozen times. Great shorts, love the stretchy material! Well cut and responsive when going between standing and sitting when pedaling. With my previous pair of overshorts had to frequently pull them back around to ...

    Great light weight, fast drying, go anywhere short

    Having just spent the last 11 months overseas in the conservative country of Nepal it was important to have a outlier over my bib shorts. The Farside were my go to from big Himalayan adventures, recovery rides in Kathmandu, and everything else in between. They are light weight, and barely ...

    Comfort, Durability and Style

    LOVE these shorts. Super comfortable, equally great on the bike and off. And they fit like a dream, I'm not very tall, 5'5" so long baggy shorts don't really work for me. These finish just above the knees, and the trim fit is perfect. I wear bibs under with no problem when ...

    Fantastic short

    I paired these with the Foundation liner short and together they work seamlessly. An economy of tailored fabric that fit and stretch efficiently. I especially like the orientation of the zippered pocket which perfectly positions my phone out of the way, yet secure and accessible..

    Excellent short both on and off the bike.

    I like riding with a pair of thin shorts over my bibs and these are really good. They are lightweight, packs up small and dries really fast. Two big pockets without zipper and one pocket on the leg with zipper gives plenty of room for the things you need to bring. The wait can be adjusted with one ...
