Gore Bike Wear Contest shorts


Price as reviewed:

This product is featured in: Cycling shorts grouptest.

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.


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.
