Performance, comfort, and stretchability are the most important features of any pair of trunks. Globe focuses on all three. For those of you who like to know what supreme technologies go into our boardies to make them so damn good, let’s get technical…


BYPOLAR STRETCH: Lightweight, functional, 2-way stretch fabric. Durable, quick-dry. Looks as good on land as it does in the water.

TWO-TONE BYPOLAR: Denim-like twill construction, featuring Globe’s BYPOLAR performance stretch technology.

FLEX STRETCH: Globe’s lightest and most advanced premium 4-way super-stretch fabric. Designed and used exclusively by Globe to enhance performance and mobility.

RECYCLED MICROFIBER: You know all those plastic water bottles you discard? Well, you’ll be glad to know (if you recycled them), they are melted down and turned into little pellets. Believe it or not, those little pellets are turned into polyester yarn and then woven together into sheets of fabric before we add our eco-friendly graphics and have them turned into incredibly lightweight and comfortable boardshorts. Nice, huh? 100% polyester.

PREMIUM MICROFIBER: Our everyday 180gm Poly-Microfiber. Quick-dry, durable and available straight up or with a super suede brushed finish.


STITCHLESS: The Globe stitchless, fully-welded design saves precious weight and offers exceptional durability and comfort.

WELDED ZIP POCKET: A lightweight stealth zip pocket for a clean look and feel.

LASER PERFORATED FABRIC: A lighter technical construction for quick water drainage.

LASER CUT DRAINAGE HOLES: Super clean laser cut holes for pocket drainage.

NON-SLIP DRAW CORD: Sticky print drawcord for extra grip.

DIAMOND WAFFLE INSIDE WAISTBAND: Textured waistband lining for non-slip security.

ELASTICIZED STITCH: To help the fabric reach it’s full stretch potential, an elasticized stitch is essential.

MESH STRETCH PANELS: Performance paneling for maximum stretch, airflow and water drainage.

MESH STRETCH GUSSET: For maximum flex, airflow and water drainage.

FLEX STRETCH PANELS: Custom engineered performance paneling.

LYCRA FLY: A lightweight secure fly, with flexible entry.
