Responsibility to yourself.

Unlike many cycling apparel manufacturers, Gore Bike Wear pours an equally attentive level of engineering into their top-end product as they do everything beneath. The Oxygen Shorts are a prime example of thoughtful design that blends a superlative level of functionality with a wallet-friendly price. The short is constructed from a high gauge nylon and Lycra blend for ample muscle support, and features an oversized waistband to prevent any tummy discomfort when you're hunched over in the drops. The front panels just above where the insert is stitched have a lower degree of elasticity to ensure complete support with minimal chafing. Gore even included a mesh side pocket for easy stashing and retrieval of a small media player if you prefer giving your ride a soundtrack.

The Oxygen Shorts are fitted with Gore's low-profile Ozon Lady insert. Gore likes to describe their Ozon as a multi-tasker that's capable of keeping you cool and comfortable as you muscle through a spin class power-hour or a long afternoon with the ladies. This seamless and highly elastic chamois moves with your body as you pedal, keeping sensitive contact points gently cushioned. You'll notice a series of carefully engineered anatomic channels running across the insert — these serve two purposes: first, to prevent the insert from creasing and creating potential chafe points as you ride, and secondly, expediting moisture transfer so you remain comfortably ventilated.

The Gore Bike Wear Women's Oxygen Shorts are now available in four colorways for you to choose from: Black, Black/Pool Blue, Black/White, and White/Black. They are available in X-Small to XX-Large with a modest inseam measuring 23cm (9in).

Technology for technology's sake?

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

This is my second pair of bike shorts, and they constitute a serious step up in craftsmanship from my last pair. I have to say though that some of the technological additions to these shorts seem like downsides rather than advantages. The rubber grips on the inside of the bottom hem gave me rashes on my legs. I could prevent this by using baby powder underneath, but Gore could also prevent this by getting rid of the grips! I've never had a problem with a well-fitting pair of workout shorts riding up the leg, so I'd much rather live without them.

Additionally, the multiple panel construction actually caused the shorts to stick out and bend in weird places. The shorts do their job, and certainly keep me from getting saddle sore, so I don't want to take away too many stars, but for the money, I would have hoped for better.

Question: is the insert in your shorts blue, or light gray? I would love to get my hands in another three pair of the Oxygen shorts with the older gray insert. But not the new blue....which can't hold a candle to its predecessor.

Gore Oxygen Shorts

Just finished a 65 mile bike ride with my new shorts. I was a little reluctant to try a new pair of shorts on such a long ride, but decided to live on the edge. I love these shorts! I replied the BUTT"r at 33 miles, and wish I had done it again the last 10 miles.
When I first tried them on, I noticed some seams up the my backside that were not flat seams.
Of course I was concerned, but it never bothered me. I think Gore should consider flat seams
everywhere though. I am 5'4" and 104 lbs. and wear an extra small.
I would recommend this product and plan on purchasing another pair.

Substantial bike short for >25 mile ride

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Oxygen shorts match my body build better than Sugoi or Specialized RBX/Comp (where the chamois is too far back behind my seat bones.) I have a pair of the lower distance Gores. These brands I use for rides less than 25 miles. I have 2 pair of the Gore Oxygen with white stripe that I use for my longer rides. I average under 100 miles per week, and my longest ride is 68 miles. 5'7" 127 lbs, 31" inseam. Also, the Gores protected my hip from more severe road rash from an accident (14 stitches in forearm) in June, that may have resulted in worse scrapes if the shorts had ripped. This made me decide not to use shorties for a better look/tan vs accident protection. Good fit, protection and like the white stripe. Use the mesh side pocket for partial Bonk Breakers, between bites.

Gore Oxygen shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've tried three pairs of these shorts and six to eight months later the stitching around the chamois starts coming out.
I like the way they fit, but they don't last very long for the price.

Favorite short for long distance rides

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love this short! Don't judge the chamois while just walking need to ride in these shorts to appreciate how comfortable it is. It's one of the few shorts I own ( I have Giordana, Sugoi, Pearl Izumi and Assos) that doesn't cause any chafing. The fabric is reasonably compressive, grippers are effective and comfortable (no sausage leg look) and the waistband is supportive without binding. The inseam length is about 8" which is perfect for me. I'm 5'1" and around 107 lb. and the XS is just right. I just ordered another pair!

Favorite Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have tried a few. None have fit as well as these. I am a former triathlete turned roadie. I never trained with shorts that had a lot of padding, so I was initially shocked at how big some of the chamoises were. I think the chamois in these short is perfect. Also, they don't make my legs look like sausages like others do. I bought 3 pair I liked them so much.

These are awesome!!!

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

I'm new to biking and I was unsure which shorts to spend money on. These are comfy and protect my butt while riding!!! They wash well and though they feel a bit weird while walking around, riding they are great!

Love, love, love!

Anyone who likes their Assos shorts will love these! They are VERY similar in fit, fabric, and chamois. They are not as flattering as some of my other shorts (Castelli, LG), but this is also true with my Assos. However, after 60+ miles, I am not as concerned with flattery as I am comfort and these sure fit the comfort bill. Standing, these shorts bunch in the back, but in the riding position they fit great. The chamois is a little thicker than most so you need to like a thick chamois to like these shorts. The bulk doesn't bother me as I don't walk around much when I ride. They are a little on the long side at around 8 or 8.5 inches, but I am short. The leg grippers keep the legs from riding up and the waist band does not bind. I am 5'3" and 148 lbs and the medium fits great so size down if you are unsure or between sizes. The best part of these shorts is how the chamois comes down a little lower on the thigh than most. This is where I need the protection - not necessarily in the middle of the chamois. I wish more manufactureres would put more padding on the outsides of the chamois than in the middle, but that could just be me. Again, these are almost identical to my Assos which I love. I just wish they would make them a little more flattering/stylish!
