Revo Short

100 % of 100
New Colours
In foul weather, normal people close their curtains and stare at screens. Normal is overrated. When there's no sane reason to be on the trail, the 4-season, fully-taped Revo short has got your back.


Since its launch in 2015, the 7mesh Revelation has become the benchmark for weatherproof cycling jackets, and now wet weather cyclists will recognize the same attention to detail in the fully taped Revo Short.

Made entirely from waterproof breathable Gore-Tex®, the Revo is patterned for the riding position, and the unique construction of the crotch gusset moves seams to the side to prevent abrasion on the saddle from mud and grit. The Revo is carefully articulated to maximize freedom of movement without hanging low when you’re out of the saddle, and features scalloped leg openings that are longer in front to add protection while still accommodating knee pads.

Features include integrated low profile waist adjusters, belt loops for riders who prefer a belt, and front hand pockets for easy access to smaller items.



  • GORE-TEX® 3L - 70d Nylon Plain Weave / Tricot Knit Backer

  • Fully taped GORE-TEX® construction.
  • New riding gusset construction (minimizes seams where shorts/pants typically fail)

  • Integrated waist adjusters
  • Reflective details
  • Inseam length 46cm (18")

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



Made with GORE-TEX® Active 3L to meet the demands of fast, foul weather riding. Active is light, packable and soft to the touch, but still tough enough to earn the Gore-Tex® “Guaranteed to Keep You Dry” standard, a guarantee that waterproofness reliably holds up for the life of the jacket.

  1. It breathes very well and is so effective at shielding from the elements, that in terms of dryness, no other waterproof short I’ve tested comes anywhere close.

  2. If the Revelation jacket sets a benchmark for quality and performance, the Revo Short is its match. I rode these during a miserable day on the trails. They pretty much ruled.

  3. From the very first wear, the 7mesh Revo shorts have performed, offering brilliant fit and functionality - a proper all winter, waterproof short. The Revos have an instant feel of being high end, functional winter riding shorts.

  4. I live in a wet climate and do my best to ride year-round. I personally hate soaking out my shorts. One excellent solution to this scenario is 7mesh’s Gore-Tex Revo shorts. They’re a game changer.

  5. The bottom line is that waterproof shorts get me out to ride more often. I know I’ll be comfortable and protected from the elements in the worst conditions possible. And the Revos are the very best performing wet weather shorts I’ve tried.

    Great Short

    These shorts were a great investment! My last pair of waterproof shorts did not breath like these do. I am able to stay warm and dry in this wet fall weather riding.

    Light weight, well cut and keep out the grot

    These shorts came highly recommended and I can see why. Well thought out features such as the in built belt and loops to fit your own and legs cut to stop your knees from getting wet mean they will likely be my go-to short for wet rides. I can easily get knee pads under/in the bottom of them and ...

    Weather Armour

    These are the sort of waterproof shorts that make you want to go out in the rain and be a better person than the people that bottled it.

    Close to perfect.

    Absolutely love them, great fit on the bike. Longer then I expected but that worked out great. Use them on trail rides and on my commute and walking the dog.

    Great snowy/rainy short for over kneepads

    Awesome short for winter riding the PNW. Fits well over bibs or tights and also over kneepads. For riding in the rainy slop these are the best. Only thing I'd add would be a secure pocket for phone.

    Best rain shorts to this date.

    These shorts are a great addition to any rain gear setup, mine being paired with the Revelation Jacket. They keep you dry at all temps, the almost 3/4 length gives you great coverage and breathability in warm temps, for cooler temps I layer them over tights or knee high wool sock. A must to have for ...

    Winter? What winter?

    These are the bees knees when it's wet out. 3 winters on mine and they still look and perform like new - slight discolouration from ground in dirt from the saddle but they're still going strong! The water repellency of these shorts is second to none and the fit is great too. If you ride ...

    Holy cow, my butt was dry

    Tried these in a downpour cyclocross event that was really muddy. I was more comfortable than I've ever been in such conditions. They do feel like a thin Gore-Tex jacket so I probably wouldn't wear them in light rain but if I know I'm going to get soaked from rain or puddles, ...

    Top Notch Kit

    Sizing was a tad small on L for 36"waist or maybe wishful thinking on my part!

  10. Byron


    Excellent foul weather shorts. Living on Canada's west coast means you need top quality rain gear, and these shorts are the best. Great for commuting, riding trails, or to the coffee shop. Well worth the money, if you're not a fair-weather rider.

    The Best Shorts - Period

    OK, they look like shorts what? Try riding a trail in the rain with standing water every 50m. Externally you are soaked. You finish your ride and realise that you are as dry as a bone; fantastic. Home and a quick wash and the shorts are ready to go again. These shorts are so good, I wonder ...

    Awesome wet weather shorts

    Awesome in the rain and breathes very well. These shorts do run big: I am normally a medium, but I had to get a small for these. They are relatively long, so they cover the top part of my knee pads. Pricey, but would definitely buy them again!
  13. Geoff

    Indispensable when the weather gets tough

    The weather report was grim for a 3 day Chilcotin trip: snow or rain, every day. Perfect conditions to test out a new pair of Recon shorts. The weather delivered: up to 10 cm's of snow, rain, and more water than dirt on the trails. Revo shorts paired with the Revelation jacket matched the ...

    Hands down, best gear investment in the past 12 months...

    I ride in the rain... A LOT! For years it has been a struggle to find a legitimate rain short that fits. One that was the actual correct length and allowed you to adjust the waist on the trail without having to wear your belt from college that your wife hates. The Revo short has been the single best ...

    Hard to imagine winter riding without these.

    The Revo Shorts have become an essential part of my winter riding. Fit and range of movement are great. Staying warm and dry definitely adds to the amount of time you can stay out on those rainy days.
