Discard any preconceptions you had about Gore Bike Wear - with these shorts, you'll look sharp, and yes, you'll be comfortable too.

From the super-wide leg-grippers with their internal rubberised Gore Bike Wear logo, to the all-mesh braces, via the plush, multi-density pad, these shorts are built to perform.|

The fit is race-tight and well contoured, and they look great, particularly in this black-and-white design.
