If you prefer shorts to bibs, the Gore Bike Wear Element Tights Shorts for men will probably click all your comfort and performance boxes without causing a dent in your wallet.

Gore has delivered padded cycling shorts with first-class, long-lasting comfort that will hold you in good stead on every trip. Strategically placed seams reduce any friction. The seat insert provides optimal comfort for short and medium rides. Gore has paid attention to having few seams and placing them where they will reduce the chance for friction and chafing. Whether you are using these to prepare for your next cyclosportif, or wear them under mountain shorts, the Element Tights Shorts will give you the sort of support that you need to keep your muscles from fatiguing too quickly while still giving your legs a chance to ventilate. The leg cuffs have a gripper elastic that will hold them in place without uncomfortably catching your skin.

The insert has been designed not to have too many bells and whistles, but simply provide you with the sort of no-nonsense cushioning protection that will get you through two hour rides on Saturday morning as well as recovery rides. It has been shaped to provide support where needed and remove bulk where it serves no purpose. The material has an elasticity as well as breathability that will keep you well aired out down there, which is one of the keys to having a comfortable ride. A “pelvic tract” has been constructed for this insert, to support the sort of pelvic rotation movement that often happens when you hunker down into a cycling position. It has been designed with a central channel to accommodate the male anatomy which will increase bloodflow and reduce the possibility of getting numb.

Great Fitting! Well made!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These shorts are made very well with no seams to cause rub irritation. The synthetic chamois pad is decent enough to take you on rides between 3-4 hours or 65 miles. Compared to my more expense Castilli shorts these are a win for the price! So far have put in approx. 200 miles without any problems. Love the quality and Craftsmenship of Gore products! My waist size is 32" I ordered the size large which fits well.

Perfect for short to medium long rides!!

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

These shorts fit like a glove! They are really comfortable for small to medium long rides. They are super comfortable until I hit 60-70 miles, which is completely fine since they are meant to be that way. Comfortable all the way through, I simply do not have any complains (and they look cool too!). Would definitely recommend to a friend, and it is really cheap too!
