Have a question? We'd love to hear about your next adventure.


The MK3 Short is a refined, long-distance road cycling short, built to take you further in total comfort.

At the heart of the short is a custom Elastic Interface® chamois designed to our exacting specifications with High-Density Foam through the centre channel, and a completely air permeable perforate top layer. Which means that from hoods to drops, the MK3 breathes, cushions and feels amazing on sensitive in-between areas, delivering unmatched comfort across the saddle, no matter how long, or low you ride.

Throughout the MK3, Clean Finish tailoring places seams and sewing lines away from action points to present smooth surfaces at every turn. Including at the waist, where the MK3's contoured pattern keeps everything under control no matter how many hills you climb.

In combination with a slightly more compressive body fabric compared to previous versions, the MK3 also sports seamless raw edges detailed with printed silicon grippers. By extending the body fabric to the hem, the MK3 does away with overeager grippers, helping the short to fit smoothly and evenly across the leg.

  1. Rob

    excellent shorts

    Generally i dont get on great with bib shorts (i'm tall and slim) so went with these. The waist band area fit is incredible, the material is oh so nice and the pad is amazingly comforatable with a kind of floating design (not stitched directly to the outer fabric). My one grip is i found a ...

    Excellent, streamlined short, very close fit

    I have been riding in these shorts for a few months now, and love them! The chamois makes a big difference in riding comfort, and the other materials in the short are very comfortable and perform well also.

    Remarkable shorts -- no one matches 7mesh for innovation

    The fabric of the MK3 is just amazing stuff and the MK3 is about as flawlessly tailored as you can imagine. It's structured in such a way that it gets even more comfortable dropped into riding position. Other brands make that claim, but 7mesh delivers on it. The chamois is a fantastic long ...

    Good quality, tight fit

    The MK3 short is a good quality product. I specifically selected this short because of the Elastic Interface chamios. This chamios is denser than the other brands that I have tried. I ordered the size based on the sizing chart, it is a tight fit. Hopefully in time it will loosen up.

    Best chammy ever

    Those short are the next level in terms of confort for long rides. Will definitely be my choice for the BC Epic this year

    Perfect short!

    These shorts are extremely well made and perform perfectly. They fit extremely well and do not move at all while I ride. Huge fan!

    Excellent for the road

    I've always thought the premium for road specific shorts was unfounded - but after logging about 1000km in the MK3's, I think I've converted. The chamois is supremely comfortable, and the way it's constructed keeps it exactly where it should, and avoids the baggy look from the ...

    A fine cycling short

    I've had many cycling shorts over the years. Most were lacking in seat comfort with a passable chamois. I decided to give the 7mesh chamois a try as I've been happy with their other products to date. An expensive pair of shorts to be sure. But any quality item usually is. I followed the ...

    Very good for trainer use

    I bought these to use indoors while using a trainer - and the best compliment I can give them is that they are utterly unnoticeable. They're comfortable, they don't ride up or down, I don't get saddle rash or sores. They simply do exactly what they're supposed to.

    MK3 Short

    Nicely crafted shorts, great fit and a comfortable chamois. The chamois is thicker than other bibs I’ve used. I’m 6’2” and 188 lbs, and wear a large. I’ve ordered a set of Mk3 bibs also, will likely use these mainly under baggies for MTB, and the bibs for road riding.

    Great Short!

    These are relatively new and as such, I've only put about 50km on them at the time of writing but I'm loving everything about these so far.

    Great fit once settled in

    I bought these after some initial concern with sizing. According to the sizing chart I have xs thighs, small hips and a medium waist. I’m a medium (5’10, 150lbs) most of the time and wasn’t sure what to do about the shorts. The advice was to fit for the hips and thighs. So in the end I went ...

    Only 7mesh could bring me back to shorts (not bibs)

    During all my years of raid racing it was bibs or nothing. Now I am doing long distance endurance bikepacking races bib shorts aren’t as practical. I have a set of 7mesh bibs that are excellent so I knew I would not be making any compromises on fit and function by going with these shorts. They are ...

    for the longer rides

    I used this bib in the Tour Divide 2019 and I can only say it keeps its comfort for a very long time. And whenever it loses its comfort, I just washed it and it feels like new again. I only washed it once in 16 days. After that I washed it again and it still feels like new every time I wear it. Best ...
