riding pants for shorter people

Recommended Posts

I am 5 '8 and would like to buy some pants which pants fit shorter riders better. If i had all the brands i would try them all on but i dont so i figured you guys might know. all of the top riders are shorter I know how they get their pants but what about the rest of us.

I had some Answer pants that were too long years ago and I took them to a seamstress and had them hemmed. They worked great.

I have Fox over the boot pants and I am 5'8" and 30" inseam. I use Hockey shin straps to secure my pants around my boots. This way I do not step on the bottoms of the pants anymore and there is no way the bottom of the pants can get caught in the chain, pegs etc.

They are a stretchy material with velcor on them. They come with 2 straps, 1 for the top of the boot and 1 for the bottom. They are slightly different in length. Just fold over the pants onto themselves, put the straps around and velcro them onto themselves, done! They only cost $8 at the hockey shop.

Here is a link so you can see them: http://www.hockeygiant.com/rshinguarstr.html

This way to nothing will get inside your boots.

Hope this helps.

I have the same issue. 5'7", but have a 28" inseam (not great for tall bikes!). I wear Shift Recon pants, which are outside the boot and I just roll them up for now (I will get them taken up later when I get a chance). Also they are zipoffs, so they can be worn as shorts when the weather is hot.

I'm 5'7" with a 30" inseam and I wear the Shift Strike pants in a size 34. My jeans are 31's but i need the pants in a 34 to accommodate my 661 Pressure Suit.
