Your go-to staple shorts!

These shorts are no-ride, squat proof, mid-waist and the perfect length! They feature our signature RideStop silicon insert. It prevents the shorts from riding up - we don't want anything holding you back!

They feature a mid-rise, reinforced waistband that ensures they stay put while training and is very flattering around your waist! You will never have to worry about anything sliding down or running up!

Editor's Note: "As a runner, these are my absolute go-to. Besides, who does not love a matching set - simply pair these shorts with its matching bra!"

Cycling shorts review

I decided to buy these as they are so comfortable feel sleek and sexy and I can wear my very light weight Burnt shorts on top, perfectly comfortable for long distance walking in summer

Love my essential shorts, as the name suggests they are my go-to, match everything and super comfortable

I am obsessed with the quality and shape Burt gives. The shorts I got don't pull up when I exercise and last for years. They don't wash out and are super stretchy! I only buy BURNT now!
