Susan says: In the past few years, I've gotten very involved in the sport of randonneuring (a style of ultra-distance riding) and completed rides as far as 400km (250mi) in one day and (more importantly) one pair of shorts! I have a few favorites I always choose for these long rides, and the Gore Oxygen is one of them. The two features that make these shorts a long-distance rockstar are the non-elasticized flat front waist panel (no bunching, binding or pressure on my stomach) and the chamois, which stays in place, doesn't chafe, and hits my sit bones in the right place.

Good shorts

(Avid Cyclist) March 11, 2014

I am a fan of Terry shorts and the thinner chamois. For me, the chamois on these shorts is too thick for my comfort. I think it's a matter of preference. I would recommend these shorts to a friend who likes extra padding.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Dries Quickly
  • Good Fit
Cons
  • Too Much Padding
Uses
  • Road Biking
  • Waist: Feels true to size

shorts for long rides

(Casual/ Recreational) February 17, 2014

I'm moving from being a recreational to an avid cyclist, so I wanted shorts that will be comfortable for longer rides. In the winter months, we ride indoors, using our own bikes with trainers and cycling coach for spin class instructor. These shorts were perfect for last week's 2.5 hour class, no breaks. Can't wait for longer rides outdoors. Comfortable, great chamois.

Pros
  • Comfortable
  • Durable
  • Good Fit
  • Good Padding
Cons
Uses
  • Commuting
  • Long Rides
  • Road Biking
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

Great looking, shapely & flattering.

(Avid Cyclist) September 4, 2013

I chose large which was way too big for a size 14 frame.

  • Waist: Feels too big
  • Length: Feels too long

Great Fit

(Avid Cyclist) May 27, 2013

I have tried several shorts looking for the *one*. These are fantastic. My first ride in them was 60 miles. I rode another 70 in them the same weekend. They are super comfy. The chamois fits like a glove. It's not to bulky nor is it too thin. Most of all, they don't make my legs look like sausages. I am 5'7 and about 145. I bought a large. I am generally a large in anything Lycra on the bottom. They are true to size. I am buying another pair I like them that much.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
  • Good Fit
  • Good Padding
Cons
Uses
  • Long Rides
  • Road Biking

Just like Assos

(Avid Cyclist) July 16, 2012

These are so much like my Assos, but much less expensive. The fabric, pad, fit are VERY similar. They are made to fit on the bike, so they will bunch in the back and look wierd when you are walking around. I don't typically walk around much, so it's not an issue for me. The chamois is amazing! I loved the thickness of the chamois in the Sugoi's but the stiff seam chaffed me horribly. The chamois in these Gore's also comes down a little further on the thigh than other shorts, which I prefer - this is where I need the padding, not as much in the middle. When will manufactureres realize this(or am I the only one)? The inseam is a little long for me; they are listed here as 8" but I actually think they are a little longer. I am short so I would prefer them to be a little shorter. I do like the leg grippers, they keep the shorts in place. I am 5'3" and 148 lbs and the Mediums fit well (maybe even a little too big). I don't think these are as flattering on as some other shorts I own (Castelli, Louis Garneau), however, they are far more comfortable. And after 60+ miles, I'll take comfort, please. In summary, if you like Assos, you'll love these!

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
  • Durable
  • Good Fit
  • Good Padding
Cons
Uses
  • Long Rides
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

Best shorts ever.

(Avid Cyclist) August 3, 2011

These are far and away the best shorts I've ever bought. In the future, I doubt I will buy anything else. They are incredibly comfortable: the chamois is flexible and well-shaped so you don't notice it at all; the little grippy bits around the edge hold them in place, no riding up as you pedal; and the icing on the cake is the mini-pocket on the outer right thigh, perfect for slipping a bit of food into if you have to stop eating partway through a bar. I'm completely in love.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
  • Good Fit
  • Good Padding
  • Good Pockets
Cons
Uses
  • Road Biking
  • Warm Weather
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length
