Product Summary

Path Project’s Sykes PX Running Shorts are one of Path Project’s more popular shorts for both trail and road running. These classic running shorts feature a rear center zip phone pocket, two rear zip storage pockets, and an internal front right key pocket offering plenty of space to bring your phone, valuables, and some gels on your next run.

As with all Path Project shorts, these are unlined but can be paired with one of their independent base liners designed to eliminate chafing and wick away moisture. The base liners come in three fabrics and four different lengths.

Available in both a 5- and 7-inch length, the Sykes PX running shorts are made with PrimeFlex material, which utilizes a spiral yard to build in 360-degrees of stretch, maximize breathability, and create a soft feel against the skin.

Additionally, this material is claimed to be just 40% of the weight of traditional Spandex. The waistband is made with TRIPURE elastic, an anti-microbial and static free material intended to dry quickly and regulate temperature.
