The Race Short was the first product we produced and it was an immediate hit, now in its fourth generation it's faster than ever.

Made with the same highly technical, featherweight 4-way stretch French fabric as the original, but now with laser-cut hems and a refined ergonomic fit to keep you streamlined and minimise friction. The brief liner now uses the same technical fabric as the outer keeping everything in place when you pick up the pace.

A single zip pocket is big enough for a car key or a couple of gels, because we know you want to keep weight to the bare minimum - no more - on race day. Reflective detailing adds flare and keeps you seen.

Though perhaps most importantly, they make you feel like a racing thoroughbred. That's why split shorts have been the go-to for racers from weekend-warriors to elites since their invention. No other design does such a good job of keeping you decent while offering completely unrestricted freedom of movement.

Inspired by the classic racing silhouette, designed for today and built to PB, the SOAR Race Shorts 4.0 are the most cutting-edge, fastest iteration yet.


Minimises the weight of the garment, improves comfort and prevents the fraying of hems.
