Glidepath Short - Women

94 % of 100
The short that started it all. Glidepath is our hero women's mountain bike short for a reason - light, durable, supremely comfortable and ready to ride with knee pads. And just wait till you try those pockets.

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


We built Glidepath with Soma 2-Way stretch woven fabric to give it astounding durability and resistance to abrasion, despite Soma's low weight. And to better cope with life on the trail, we finished it off with a durable water repellant (DWR) coating that quickly sheds splashes and light rain.

Detailed patterning allows mobility and freedom of movement with minimal bulk. The crotch gusset is patterned and the leg articulated for the mid-pedal stroke position. As a result the Glidepath moves smoothly and won't get caught on the saddle, even if you're way back on the bike. Naturally, the Glidepath is compatible with most non-downhill knee pads.

Front hand pockets hold quick-access items, while two zipped, side utility pockets protect your essentials. These pockets are angled from back to front allowing you to carry items comfortably and without interfering with your pedalling motion. Each utility pocket also has a cell phone sleeve to secure and separate your cargo. The Glidepath has low profile built-in waist adjusters, but also has loops for riders who prefer a belt.

  1. The Glidepaths are the best women’s shorts I’ve ever had the pleasure to spend a day in. Kudos to 7mesh for once again hitting the bulls-eye.

  2. 7mesh is meticulous about fit and we appreciated the way these shorts curve slightly through the transition from hip to waistline.

  3. Virginia has practically lived in the 7mesh Glidepath shorts and Callaghan Merino hoodie, both of which she swears by. The Glidepath is light, extremely durable—these have been across Armenia and on countless trail rides–and comfortable.

    The only shorts I wear!

    These shorts are the best, they're durable and breathable and they look great. Excellent quality and they're perfect for getting rowdy on the trails! Quite literally the only shorts I ever wear.

    My New Favourites…..

    I really like the fit of these shorts. They are super light and don’t feel like anything. I’m tall and prefer the longer cut, they have been my go to short since I bought them looking forward to new season of colours as soon as they come out. Best fit, exceptional quality, worth the spend.

    Everyday go-to!

    I have three pair of Glidepath shorts in my rotation and couldn’t imagine riding in anything else. As someone that’s on the bike six days a week, I love the comfort, sizable pockets, articulation, breathability and slight stretch of these shorts. Several crashes, hundreds of washes and ...

    Love these shorts!

    So comfortable. Great for all season mtb rides!

    Uncomfortably tight with no stretch in the waistband

    These shorts fit very small/tight with no accommodation for curves. I am comfortably a L or XL in MTB shorts from various other brands but I could just barely do up the XL in these. There's no stretch anywhere so they fit very tight, which is uncomfortable and not great for active adventures. ...

    Crazy comfortable shorts!!

    These shorts are incredible! My husband and I both have them and they are our go-to whenever we head out for a long ride on the trails. Perfect length, pocket placement is brilliant and material is perfect for warmer rides. Will definitely be back for more! For reference I am six feet tall, slim ...

  7. Nicole

    Functional, breathable and tough!

    I use these shorts day after day coaching and riding. The material is soft and flexible, yet very durable. They never ride up/down thanks to the innovative waist-cinching system, and no velcro means my shirt doesn't get snagged. The pockets are perfect for storage and fit a large phone with ...

    Athlete Pick

    I've been riding these women's mountain bike shorts for the last few years and each year they just keep getting better and better. They are my go-to shorts for a casual ride with friends, training ride, bike park or going for an all-day adventure! The perfect length finishing just below my ...

    Favorite short

    Finally got out for a ride in my new Glidepath shorts. They were comfortable and stretched a little as I wore them. I was caught in a rainstorm with some hail and got filthy with mud and a bit soaked. No problem, my shorts dried quickly and I was able to brush off the mud and wear them on the drive ...

    Staff Pick!

    From the moment I got my hands on the Glidepath I have done my best to put them through the wringer - they are unbeatable! Lightweight, crazy comfortable, and quick drying, these shorts are my first pick on bike trips.
