There's something pretty great about pulling on a pair of 3/4 shorts and heading out on the bike. Traffic, the day ahead, these things are secondary to the feeling once your leg goes over the top bar and the wheels begin to roll. That special moment is what inspired us to make the Muxu Ride 3/4 Short, and we hope you like it.
Made from a soft to touch mid weight cotton with an elastane blend, the Ride 3/4 has just the right amount of stretch to move with the body on the bike, so whilst the look is fitted, you are never anything but comfortable. Higher at the back and lower at the front, the waist stays out of the way of your stomach and the lower back is covered. Two deep pockets with flush openings sit at the rear, with a third off centre pocket finished with a tone to tone embroidered Muxu 'X' symbol, which is a perfect place to put your mp3 player or phone. At the front, two side opening pockets catch all of those off the bike 'but what do I do with my hands?' moments, with the left hand pocket subtly branded with a tone to tone embroidered Muxu logo.
Long rides can take their toll on the body, but in order to ensure all day comfort, the Ride 3/4 has a seamless crotch area which is designed to protect this sensitive area. In combination with over engineered flat stitched seams throughout, the result is a seriously hard wearing and comfortable short.
Designed in Barcelona, made in Portugal, and in two attractive colours, the Muxu Ride 3/4 is available to buy today.

"if the shirts have impressive written all over them, that of the threequarter shorts would have a capital i if i used such typographic niceties. these almost felt like those moleskin style breeches that one has only heard of, but never placed a leg inside. when it comes to threequarter shorts, the bottom of the leg seems to provide a challenge for the majority of designers; some are more successfully implemented than others. the muxu shorts are amongst the best yet. fussy is obviously not a word derived from spanish, since these are commendably plain with four and a half pockets (there's a small pump type pocket inhabiting the outboard area on one of the larger front pockets), freedom at the knees, good length and a relaxed fit that complements that of the shirts. and the all-important comfort zone where comfort zones are most needed.."
The Ride 3/4 will arrive with you pre-washed, and is designed to give a closely fitted style, with the inbuilt elastane / cotton blend providing the stretch to ensure a really comfortable fit. After a few hours of use, or a ride or two, the fit will relax slightly to provide the perfect fit.
When looking at the sizing chart below, If you are on the upper edge of a size, you could consider going for the next size up if you don't want a close fit.

Muxu Rider Reviews
comfortable, stylish, great price. Review by Steve(Posted on 6/8/11)I love these shorts!! I agree with Etaper that they are a bit tight at first but they stretch out just right. I like the deep, roomy pockets and the snug fit around the knees. Overall, an excellent product. Am I the only cyclist in Toronto who own these because everywhere I go people ask me about them?
the washing machine post was right. Review by Edward(Posted on 8/16/10)Bought these after reading the review over at the washing machine post. Lovely 3/4 shorts, very smart and ideal for city riding. Really comfortable, and the side rear pocket fits my phone perfectly. They seem very well made throughout, and the branding is nice and subtle which I like. Quite a slim fit, but as the other reviewer mentioned, they do give a little after an hour or so.
Well made, close fit that relaxes. Review by Etaper(Posted on 8/12/10)The Muxu shorts are really nice, really comfy on the bike, and also sufficiently non bikey to look good off the bike for touring. The fit is close though, a little too close for me intially, but after an hour of use, they relaxed slightly and now are perfect. Eduardo from Muxu emailed me in reply to my question, and he said that they are pre washed, so when they arrive, they are a little more fitted then they will be after a little use.
All in all, very pleased.
