Find your element.

Sometimes it feels like the shorts options available for women only come in two inseams — short, and really short. While this works well for some of us, others might prefer a longer inseam for more coverage and compression. GORE meets this need with the Element Shorts. With their nine-inch inseam, they're longer than many of the women's shorts options out there and provide a supportive ride.

These shorts are constructed of a stretchy and durable synthetic fabric blend for a comfy yet compressive fit that moves with you as you ride. GORE strategically placed the seams to avoid pinching and friction and included a wide waistband to reduce potential for pressure points on the stomach compared to shorts with a traditional, narrow elastic waistband. Gripper elastic at the leg hems makes sure the shorts stay in place so you can focus on the ride and the scenery without any wardrobe-related distractions.

The Element Shorts come with GORE's Element Women's chamois, specifically designed for female physiology and made of microfiber fabric to keep you comfy and dry on short to medium rides of up to about two hours. To round it all out, a reflective back logo and reflective piping on the sides of the shorts increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions.

I wanted these to go with my Gore jersey/jacket but the pinks don't match. I should have exchanged them for an extra small but they aren't baggy anywhere so I didn't hassle with an exchange. I'd rate them higher if I had gotten an XS. Love the leg bands and the little pocket.
