Summer running has never looked this good. We merged our best selling fabric with the functional design of our Speed Shorts to bring you our Faster Than Light Short. These shorts fit and feel like a glove, with improved sizing adjustments from our Speed Shorts. They are a Summer training staple, and scream runner girl. 



- Our best selling fabric, made for high intensity movement

- Unique 1/2 elastic waistband taper design for maximum comfort around your stomach (no pinching around your stomach) while still ensuring shorts do not budge

- Thigh design ensures spandex do not ride up during movement

- Side pockets, perfectly placed and sized for weightless feel with zero movement. Made for your phone, keys, gels, and more

- No front seam 

- Reflective logo on the back

- Flattering back "V" seam to accentuate the glutes


Inseam measurements:

We do NOT believe that one size fits all, which is why we use a grading method for our inseam measurements. This allows the shorts to look and feel the same on all sizes. 

Inseam Grading of Spandex Shorts:

xsmall- 9 cm

small- 10.2 cm

medium- 11.4 cm

large- 12.6 cm 

xlarge- 13.8 cm



- Runs true to size. If you are in between sizes, we recommend sizing up. 

- Caitlyn is 5'8, has a 26" waist, and wears a size xsmall.

Perfect shorts

These shorts are SO CUTE and extremely comfortable for long runs (10+ miles)
Sizing seems right on point to me, for reference I am 5’8” and 125 pounds and usually am a size small, so I went with that and they fit perfectly. They are definitely tight but you feel so fast running in them!
Thanks Expntl!

Compressive, High Quality

I've been a runner for 15+ years, have tried all the brands. When I first put on these shorts, I thought I'd ordered too small a size, which annoyed me because I'm consistently a size small in all activewear. But once I actually went out for my run, I realized these shorts are supposed to be compressive and hug your body tightly. And I loved them! They didn't move at all during my run. If you like compressive running clothing, buy these. I wouldn't buy them for lounging; the compression becomes too much after a few hours.
