Description

Well, maybe somewhat of a contest.

Race level support isn't always needed in a pair of cycling shorts. Zip-away bibs, high-end compression fabrics and quick-dry chamois all have their place. Gore Bike Wear's Women's Contest Shorts come in where performance bibs leave off, without compromising the quality or security of a well-built pair of shorts.

The shorts have a comfortable, non-race fit, and are well priced for those who don't ride frequently but want the support of a cycling short. They're made for a ride on the bike path or around the neighborhood with the family, but can take the rigors of a 20-mile ride.

They're constructed from a nylon-elastane compressive fabric that aims to promote faster blood circulation and increase oxygen supply during exertion. The fabric also gives an improved fit so the Contest Shorts don’t limit your freedom of movement while in the saddle. No gripper on the bottom hem gives these shorts a more natural feel than traditional cycling shorts. Shifted seams on the outside of the leg reduce chafing, helping to achieve a more comfortable ride. The women-specific Contest chamois features elasticity, breathability, and a seamless finish that make it ideal for a weekend spin around the city, a quick hill repeats session, or a climb up a canyon.The women's Gore Bike Wear Contest Short comes in Black, White, and Pool Blue/black. They are available in X-Small to XX-Large with an inseam length of 18cm (7in).

Good buy

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

Got shorts for my wife and she loves them. Short or long rides she says they are comfortable and sizing is right on.

Awesome Short

Love them, love them! I own four pairs of these shorts and these are the only shorts I will wear. They by far are the most comfortable shorts I've ever owned and I've worn many different other brands. They are lightweight, breatheable, perfect length (not too long - not too short) and a bonus for me was that they don't have those annyoying rubber grippers on the bottom hem and yet they still stay put. You will not be disappointed with these shorts.

If you like these, you'll love Gore's XENON shorts & jersey! I was so surprised; almost as good as Giordana, with the main difference in the contour of the chamois. Try them next time!
