FKT 5" Shorts Win 2018 Gear of the Year Award from The Ginger Runner

We're incredibly honored to have our FKT 5" trail shorts win The Ginger Runner's 2018 Gear of the Year award! Whether you're shooting for an FKT, a PR or just a great day in the mountains, the FKTs are sure to become your new favorite trail companions. Featuring a 5 inch inseam, two side pockets—which are perfect for stashing a quick snack and for packing out your trash—and a rear zip pocket that's large enough to hold most phones, the FKTs are engineered to be just as tough as you.

"Trail runners need pockets. The FKT shorts have them. These shorts have the familiar, comfortable feel of every rabbit short combined with a functional design. Between the large back zip pocket and the smaller side pockets along the hip, I can stash anything I need for even my longest training runs." rabbitPRO Eric Senseman, 2017 JFK 50 Champion

"The FKT shorts do it all! Weather on the trail or road you can have quick easy access to all the little things you might bring on your run. With having pockets on my hip that stretch, I can grab a gel with eases or have a place to store my gloves once the conditions change. Even with all the available storage the FKT’s are still lightweight and ready to perform." rabbitPRO Anthony Costales, 2018 USATF Trail Marathon Champion

"The FKT’s are unlike any other shorts I’ve worn in most ways. The cut is different, the pockets are different, and the waistband is a damn revolution. Rather than making minor tweaks to an old model, rabbit basically started from scratch, building a new type of shorts with trail runners in mind, and they aced it." rabbitPRO Kris Brown, 10th at the 2018 Western States 100

"I've never understood why it's so tough to find the perfect running short. It's not too much to ask for, right? rabbit must have been wondering the same thing and decided to fill the void of an insanely comfortable, versatile and functional race short with the FKT. They're just as great for daily training, but to me they really stand out as the best race shorts I've ever used. The FKT have the perfect amount of storage with the stretchy side trash pockets and back zip. They also have the softest and most comfortable waist band you've ever felt which makes chafing impossible even if you're wearing a race belt over the shorts. Give em' a shot and I promise you'll be impressed!" rabbitPRO Jimmy Elam, 2018 Broken Arrow Skyrace 52k Champion & CR holder
