Tenn Protean MTB Shorts Product Review by Emerald MTB

 

Waterproof mountain biking shorts, not something that you will (hopefully) use all year round, but with the winter and spring we’ve had so far this year these have come in extremely handy.

Waterproof materials can be less than comfortable, but that is not the case with these Tenn Protean cycling shorts. The material is a little noisier than normal shorts, but not excessively stiff. The mesh lining is very comfortable, and doesn’t have any of that cheap plastic waterproof jacket feeling.

I’ve worn these on most rides over the winter months and well into spring, ranging from wet to monsoon – during one ride we were literally riding through streams of water coming down the trail. On none of them did my back side get wet, or even cold. Admittedly it’s been pretty cold, but I haven’t noticed any excessive sweating while wearing these shorts.

After every use I wash in the machine at 30 degrees and they come up clean every time. I have not noticed any wear through use or repeated washing over the time that I’ve used these.

I don’t carry anything in my pockets while biking, so I can’t comment on how secure these are, but the zips are waterproof.

The waistband is somewhat elasticated and also has twin velcro adjusters to ensure a snug fit. They are sized a little on the small side, being a bit tighter than other shorts I have tried of the same size, but not to the extent that I would have bought a different size. They are knee length, coming to just on my knee cap when I’m standing up and just above the knee and just about overlapping my knee guards when seated on the bike.

All-in-all a great pair of shorts for those wet winter months. [Back to Tenn Protean Shorts]

Size Charts & Buying Guide

Size charts & buying guide

 

Below are the Tenn sizing charts, and some information about measuring, and technical properties which we hope will be helpful. If there is anything you need a hand with, that we have not included here, please Contact Us and we are always happy to help!

Measuring

As a general rule, keep the measuring tape firm, but not too tight. If you're measuring yourself, try to take them more than once, to average out any change in your posture.

Measuring your chest:

Simply measure around the fullest part of your chest, keeping the tape level under your arms and across your back.

Measuring your waist:

Just measure around the narrowest part of your body at your hips.

Measuring for gloves:

Wrap a tape measure around your strongest hand just below the knuckles and fingers, make a loose fist. Please round up to the nearest size and (not down).
