Gore Bike Wear's Alp-X Women's Short+ combines a mountain bike-oriented cut with a no-nonsense degree of styling and material selection. To begin with, Gore uses a proprietary blend of nylon and elastane for the construction, which was chosen for its mixture of breathability and controlled stretch.
This not only helps cool during summer months, but its four-way stretch ensures mobility isn’t compromised. Also, a wind- and spray-protection panel at the crotch and center back provides extra protection from gusts and creek crossings. And the areas that contact your saddle, like the inner thighs and seat panel, have also been strengthened with abrasion-resistant fabrics.
The Women's Alp-X shorts use elastic in the waistband to conform to your midsection without binding. Internally, a removable liner with a Contest Pro chamois ensures proper support and cushioning for multi-day bike trips. Flatlock stitching throughout eliminates chafing, and mesh vents ensure adequate airflow.Finally, reflective accents increase visibility to motorists in low-light situations.
The Gore Bike Wear Alp-X Short+ - Women's are available in sizes X-Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black, Waterfall Blue/black, Speed Blue/raven brown, and Rich Red/black.
