Gore Bike Wear Contest shorts review

Gore Bike Wear shorts
Cycling Weekly Verdict

We would have liked to see the shorts finished with Gore's trademark leg grippers, which come at the higher price points. But otherwise, we'd find it hard to fault these bibs.

    Chamois 9/10

    Quality of Lycra 9/10

Gore's entry-level shorts offer a simple yet effective design.

An eight-panel construction offers an optimum fit while each of these panels features flat stitched seams that you'd barely notice, which was a huge plus when it came to comfort.

The Coolpower fabric offered fantastic wicking properties and fitted like a dream.
