Description

A pro-worthy GORE short for the masses.

Think of Gore Bike Wear Alp-X Pro Shorts as the laid-back, seasoned veteran of long-distance mountain bike tours. These shorts are tough and techy enough for the long haul but still look cool and easy-going during the post-ride coffee break.

The Alp-X II Pro Shorts are what Gore Bike Wear calls hybrid shorts: they mix the best of both baggies and spandex. The Alp-X II Pro's outer shorts fit closer to your body than a typical mountain bike short so you won't catch material on your seat during a technically challenging ride, yet they retain a casual look. The outer shorts feature an elastic, adjustable waistband with a hook-and-loop closure for a comfortable fit as well as a side pocket with a hook-and-loop closure to ensure you won't lose important small items. Also, two zippered side ventilation openings can be adjusted as needed.

Alp-X Pro Shorts comes with Gore's Alp-X Man Insert. Gore calls it the 'Tour Wonder' because it's designed specifically for multi-day off-road tours. This seamless pad is made with perforated foam that offers excellent breathing and ventilation for quick drying and easy temperature regulation. The high-profile Alp-X provides the most cushioning and shock absorption of any of Gore's chamois pads. The ergonomic shape and stretch make this pad a perfect choice for long-distance mountain bike rides.

Gore Alp-X Pro Shorts feature a 12-inch (30cm) inseam. These shorts are equipped with reflective piping and other reflective elements. They come in Black and are available in sizes Small through XX-Large.

Exactly what I was looking for.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

These shorts combine the benefits of spandex shorts and baggy shorts, without the extra material of baggy shorts in the crotch area to catch on the saddle. The trails I like to ride are full of dips and quick technical turns that require moving around the saddle and a few times I unfortunately became hung-up. I've ridden over 10 times and these shorts have eliminated that fear I had. The pockets work great and the zippers on the side vents are easy to open and close with gloves on. I wear a 33 waste and went with the Medium size and they fit great.
