Women's Uprising Short


Our Uprising Shorts are the go-to choice for road bikers taking on all distances. From 10 miles to 100 miles, our unique shorts convert from form-fitting and aerodynamic on the bike to loose and stylish off the bike. Using a combination of a subtle zipper and adjustable Velcro™ closure, you control how snug they get. Our cycling shorts are lightweight and highly breathable with side and back air vents to keep you cool and comfortable for the longest of rides.
Centennial Blue

These road biking shorts are truly “tried, tested and customer approved.” They are our most well-loved, original cycling short. With an elastic waistband and breathable, stretch fabric, the Uprising Short is a must-have for every ride. Off the bike, the Uprising has been seen on trail runs, at the gym, and in the yoga studio. Triathletes also love them for the comfort and versatility that they offer. Whether you’re in the saddle for the long haul or just until you get to work - the Uprising will help you take on whatever the day throws your way.


Premium Fabric: 86% Polyester,14% Spandex

  • Unique, patented 11P® system gives you the ability to cinch them down for a form-fitting style while you ride, then convert to loose and comfortable later. 
  • Make them fit just right using a button closure on the lower leg.
  • Running hot or cold? Close or open the side leg ventilation, designed with a tricot (aka ultra-breathable) mesh. 
  • 4-way stretch: The Uprisings comfortably support a wide range of movement. 
  • Breathable: side-leg ventilation helps keep the air flowing. 
  • Quick-dry: a durable, stretch woven material that sheds water. 
  • Storage pockets: Spacious pockets hold your essentials, a zipper keeps them there.

Dual Fit:
Highly breathable, 4-way stretch fabric and elastic waistband provide superior comfort and generous fit in both the form-fit and relaxed fit modes. The shorts also have a velcro tab at the hem to dial in the fit best for aerodynamics. A drawstring can also help to further dial in fit if required.

    Best Shorts Ever

    These shorts fit me perfectly for any athletic activity! They wear well, have actual functional pockets which is a rarity in women's clothes! Well made, and made to last.

    Great shorts/ great service

    I'm extremely happy with my Uprising shorts, which I bought for biking but can really use for anything. I ordered a second pair right away because I was wearing them so much. I had an issue with the size of the liner shorts I ordered, and Jeff, the owner, was extraordinarily helpful and accommodating and ended up sending me 2 other sizes to try with a return envelope to return what didn't fit. I highly recommend these shorts--and this is the first time I have ever reviewed anything I purchased--that's how much I like the shorts and appreciate the customer service.

    LOVE these shorts!

    I bought the uprising short several years ago when 11 Pine just go started. They quickly became my favorite biking and all around short. Now several years later with many wearings (& washings) these shorts are as good as new. Beautiful sleek fit, comfortable yoga waist band, extremely light and cool. After biking I take off my liner and where these shorts around town for the rest of the day. You have to try these!!


    Love these shorts! My husband had a pair and enjoyed them so much, the family got me a pair for mother's day. Wear them not only for biking but also for just working/leisure around the house. Thumbs up!!

    I'd give these shorts 6+ stars if I could

    I would like to share that I love my uprising shorts and I have gotten my sister addicted to elevenpine shorts! I introduced my sister to road biking a few years back, and to your uprising shorts. So far, we have ridden Tour De Wyoming, Ride Idaho and the best ride across Cuba, Havana to Trinidad, and will be riding across South Dakota this spring. All while wearing your uprising shorts. It is so great to be able to get off the bike and "unzip" and be comfortable. This really was perfect in Cuba, as we got off the bike often to tour the Towns we rode through. My sister also wears her shorts, minus the liner to raft and loves that they are so quick drying. Wonderful product!


    It sounds like we need to get a new review app for our store to get those 6 stars from you! We're happy to hear both you and now your sister are riding. The ride across Cuba sounds like a blast. Have fun in South Dakota this spring.
