OVERVIEW: The Tellus collection is designed to excel in all your warm weather, off-road pursuits where lightweight comfort and breathability, coupled with individual style, are paramount. We didn’t want to bog the Tellus collection down with excessive bells and whistles. Instead, we chose to focus on creating an off-road kit that disappears on your body. 

The all-new Tellus Collection for MTB or gravel has been designed with minimalistic all-day comfort in mind.

FIT & DESIGN: The trim fit of the Tellus Shorts offers a nice, casual appearance when off the bike, but the design also ensures you won't be burdened with baggy, flapping fabric when charging hard on gravel or singletrack. The waistband has been constructed with a large elastic 'belt,' which utilizes hook and webbing so you can tighten to a perfect fit. A single button and zip-fly allow for quick and easy on/off. Two backwards facing zip pockets are perfect for keys, cards, tools or other items you want to keep secure. When not in use for storage, these mesh-backed pockets can be zipped open to serve as scoops, further promoting air flow and cooling. The back of the short features two external, mesh dump-pockets that are ideal for holding your ride snacks or trash in case you want to leave the hip-bag or pack at home.

Singletracks Magazine"The Pactimo Tellus stands out from the rest with a radically different fit and styling… but the ultralight weight makes me want to shed the hydration pack and pedal miles and miles in this short with just a couple of bottles on the frame. I think this will be the perfect short for some big gravel biking adventures." 

FABRICS & CONSTRUCTION: We've used a lightweight, ripstop fabric in the Tellus, made from 37.5 Polyester yarns and Spandex, so you have incredible 4-way stretch in a short that will seem to disappear during your ride. But, what sets these shorts apart from others on the market is the use of woven Cocona particles from 37.5® Technology. Those amazing, little particles attract humidity and use your body heat to rapidly transfer perspiration from the interior to the exterior of the garment. This rapid transfer of moisture ensures a regulated body temperature and can increase athletic performance by as much as a 25% (results based on an independent University of Colorado study). This means you can ride longer and harder while staying cooler. Learn more at

Truly a lightweight garment, the Tellus Short is a mere 4 ounces in a size medium.

Women's size medium has a 9.25" inseam. Inseam lengths grade 0.2" per size.

Measuring Tips 


Using a soft measuring tape, bring the tape across your back under each arm, around the front. For women, measure the widest point of the bust. For men, measure around the largest part of your chest.


Bend to one side to find natural indentation in torso. This is your natural waist. Run tape around waistline, keeping tape parallel with floor. 


Stand on a level surface with feet together. Measure around fullest part of hips and bottom (approximately 7" - 9" below waistline), keeping tape parallel with floor.

I have bigger hips and a small waist. It is hard for me to find shorts of any kind. I bought the 2XL because I’ve tried the XL in the shorts for our team kit and they were way too small. Hips and legs fit great but the waist is too big even when adjusted all the way in. I could be ok with that though. The main thing I don’t like is the back of the shorts don’t compensate for wearing padded shorts underneath. The waist feels like it should come up higher in the back. The material is great! I’ll wear them more for after races or rides.

Lightweight, Breathable, and Comfortable

The Tellus Shorts are the perfect technical cycling short for the hot summer months. They are more form fitted than a typical mountain bike short, but they are super stretchy and comfortable.
