ELITE Race Shorts 3.0


View Size Chart

Of the things that mark you out as a runner – the black toenails, the collection of safety pins at the bottom of every bag, the tales of al-fresco bathroom breaks – split shorts are among the most overt displays of dedication. More than that though, they make you feel like a racing thoroughbred.

That’s probably why split shorts have been the go-to for racers from club to international level since their invention. No other design does such a good job of keeping you decent while offering completely unrestricted freedom of movement.

So why are they so hard to buy?

With SOAR, we knew we had to put that right – icons deserve to be seen, and they deserve the opportunity to keep evolving.

The Race Short was the first product we produced and it was an immediate hit. Now in its third generation, it’s better than ever, with the same lightweight, 4-way stretch French fabric as the original, but with an adjusted, ergonomic hem shape, a refined liner and a new elastic mesh waistband that is pared back to the bare minimum.

We know you want to carry as little weight as possible on race day, but we still include a single zip pocket in the Race Shorts 3.0, big enough for a car key or a couple of gels.

Inspired by the classic racing silhouette, designed for today and built to last, the SOAR Race Shorts 3.0 are your fast track to fast.
