Epic rides await you.

Made for the hardcore endurance rider, the Gore Bike Wear Men's Alp-X Plus Short is a highly versatile, extremely rugged short designed to keep you riding comfortably in a wide range of conditions. Its removable liner sports Gore's Contest Pro Men's insert for high-density padding on long-distance rides. Zippered mesh vents help to disperse built-up heat when you're riding through sweltering deserts and sunny stretches of open trail.

Wind- and spray-resistant panels along the shorts' crotch and center-back shed moisture, dirt, and trail debris from soaking through in wet conditions. The reinforced seat withstands abrasion from long hours on your trail bike. Additionally, you'll find exterior loops along the elastic waistband that allow for pant attachment, should you require extra protection from cooler temperatures and wet weather.

Odd Fit

  • Fit: Runs small

The shorts appear very well made and high quality. The description says it runs small. I ordered one size up. The waist fit great, but the legs went below my knees. It appears there is no happy medium. I am returning it.
