The Talus Ultra Shorts are built with a lightweight, quick drying Matrix™ Aero stretch fabric with a Flexile™ 100 stretch waistband. With their featherweight feel and friction-free design, they’re optimised for clocking kilometres on mountainous terrain.


Built to offer complete comfort over long distances and mobility on challenging terrain, the Talus Ultra Shorts are designed for the dedicated, ultralight mountain runner. They are built with super-fast drying Matrix™ Aero outer short and a quick-wicking, mesh-like Motiv™ Aero inner short. With flatlock seams, stitch free hems, and a slim fit, these running shorts are devoted to distance, eliminating the potential for rubbing on mountain marathons. They have a comfortable, compressive stretch waistband made with Flexile™ 100, with a deeper back section and integrated pocket with inner secure key pocket. Ideal for tackling tricky terrain and running in hot climates, these breathable, stripped-back shorts are built for the minimalist mountain runner travelling fast and light.
