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).
