Keep long rides in short order.

We’ve come to expect a carefully engineered garment from Gore, and the Xenon 2.0 Lady Tights Women’s Short does not disappoint. The Xenon 2.0 Shorts is perfect for the rider who demands the support of a bib but desires the ease of a short.

The Xenon 2.0’s unique panel design (made with a high-gauge Lycra) produces an ergonomic fit with optimal muscle support. The inside panels of the short utilize a more abrasion-resistant weave of nylon to create a comfortable and durable saddle area. In addition, Gore has moved all of the short’s seams away from potential irritation points and lined each hem with a wide, compressive band of nylon and Lycra, so you’ll never have to break your rhythm to rearrange shorts.

Gore has fitted the Xenon 2.0 short with its superb Xenon Lady insert. The chamois' sleek antimicrobial surface is gentle on your skin while wicking away moisture. The Xenon Lady utilizes a combination of foam and gel to guarantee support across the entire surface of the chamois to guarantee that you’ll feel great after a long day in the saddle.

Finally, don’t worry if you’re riding home after dusk because Gore has fitted the Xenon 2.0 short with reflective logo hits and inserts that will keep you visible.

  • Ergonomic fit
  • Shifted seams for less irritation
  • Abrasion-resistant panels inside leg and saddle area
  • Xenon Lady insert
  • Reflective logo hits on side and back

Here's what others have to say...

"Silicone" Leg-Gripper Hem

Contrary to the description, the leg hems do indeed have a silicone beading, as you can see in the photo (the lettering and designs are the silicone 'beading'). It is quite comfortable, and no problem at all pulling them down for pit-stops! They stay exactly in place with no binding.

Product detail correction:

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

The description states the chamois is removable...not so, it is sewed on, like most other tights/shorts.
Also, the legs do have silicone 'grippers', just configured a little differently (in the form of writing and graphics), same results: keep leg hems in place.

*Sorry I didn't notice this mis-information earlier for you, ladies.

Xenon Jacket, jersey,shorts & socks.

I ride solo most times, so I haven't been able to get a "action shot" yet...whatever, this will give you a idea of this how great the reflective elements look; and a great-looking 'kit' that will look even better on more athletic type bods!
(there are even more reflective elements on the back-side of the jacket, jersey, and shorts).

Great Visibility +

Here, the camera's flash shows the great reflective hits on this kit. There
s the same reflective details on the back of the Jacket, Jersey, and Shorts (the reflective design wraps around slightly to the back of the shorts). Gore really thought out cyclist' visibility with the Xenon line!

Great Performance, Period!

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

Just came back from a long, HOT ride (88f with very high humidity), and these were just perfect.
Material breathed excellently; waist and leg band hems stayed in place (no binding or shifting at all). On some shorts, even the Giordanas, the waist band often times slips down and I find I'm always adjusting and pulling them up (a smaller size won't work, not yet anyway).

No scratchy seams; which is one of the things about my Assos' shorts that bothers me.

And, best of all, the chamois is the best, if not a tad wide in the back. Have to say, it is more comfortable than my Giordana lasers. (I still have to change the saddle on my men's Trek Fuel EX 8; so any chamois that allows me to ride long distances without too much pain is a definite plus!). Great breathability in that dept., too.

For size: I usually size up (in Gore, a XXL), but I think I might have been able go with a XL in these (curvy, but working on it!) and will order a XL next time. So I would say they run *true-to-size.

I got these in the black/white version, and also the matching Xenon singlet jersey and Xenon jacket (and Xenon socks, from 'somewhere else)...very nice, and quite sharp, but...not for the muddy rides of course, but so 'cool' on a hot, dry summer day/cool evenings. Will definitely be getting the black shorts for the dirtier rides.
This is Gore's top tier lineup, and I defiantly recommend it (still, they need to refine the contour of their chamois a little better, but they are comfortable!).

Country of Origin:

Stamp on back of garment reads:
"Engineered in Germany...Made in China"

Will post any quality issues if they arise.

Hi Debbie, Do you use the same size in these as Assos? I would like to purchase a pair but being in NZ want to get the size correct
thanks for your time

Responded on

Hi Fay, wish I was there! What interesting rides you must enjoy!

I am not petite, so in the Assos, I wear a 'XL', and it fits just fine. Now with Gore, I find I usually have to size up to a 'XXL'...I need room for bust/shoulders, and on the bottom-end, need to work on the waist-line.
I will be ordering another of these (and another singlet), but will be trying a 'XL' this time. These seem true-to-size, unlike many of their other offerings. If you're of a slim/athletic build, I'd recommend ordering your regular Assos size.
Of course, if you possible could, order one in your Assos size, and maybe one in a size-up; send back the one that doesn't work...

You might want to consider the jacket, too, while it's on sale, to complete your kit. Gore has women's Xenon socks, too!

I see they have re-introduced more of the Assos Lady Ellisse jersey in ALL the great graphic colors! I've the Adua & and the blue-fronted shorts...coolness!

Let us know how it all works out for you, and God Bless!

As good, or even better, than ASSOS

Great compression, very comfortable chamois. I have worn Assos for years and these are even better feeling, especially on long rides (I am a size M)

Responded on

BETTER than Assos!...I've got to try these!

Responded on

You know, I think you're right! I love them, and will be getting another pair (in solid blk.). I think they may be even more comfortable than the Giordana's! So long as the quality holds up, I've found a "new love"!

Too lLarge chamois for small sizes

The chamois was really big in these -- felt oversized. I wear an XS in all my bike shorts and with the chamois being very wide in this pair - made them feel baggie and large in the seat - had to send them back. For reference- Assos, Giordana Carbon, various Sugoi and Per Uz. over the years are others that I wear/have worn. May be great in larger sizes - the chamois would form to the larger seart area, and the style/look was nice - waist sat nice an low enough, flat, etc ... but not good fit in the smaller size.

Responded on

I just got these, and love them; but I have to agree that the back part of the chamois is wide, maybe wider than it needs to be. And I am not small, unfortunately! But I love these otherwise. Also have Assos, Giordana, and L.G. (but L.G. not my favs). I have some Gore tights, and it's pretty much the same song: they need to work on the 'shape/fit' of their chamois. Hope they do it soon, for this coming winter and next summer season!
