Short singletrack loops and mid distance trail rides call for a pair of shorts that strike an optimum balance between comfort oriented design and sleek aesthetics, as to not weigh you down with excess features and unnecessary bulk. Striking all the right cords for the recreational trail enthusiast, the Gore Women's Element 2 In 1 Shorts provide a trail specific design that's pleasantly relaxed for full range of motion and maximum maneuverability. Tough wearing fabric is both lightweight and slightly stretchy, conforming to your every move as you slalom through twisty berms and peddle across smooth buffed sections. The shorts' attached liner brings strategic support and enhanced breathability, thanks to generous use of stretchy elastane and partial mesh ventilation inserts. Gore's Element Women chamois alleviates saddle pressure, contoured to the shape of a woman's body for an anatomically correct fit and feel. The comfortable elastic waistband maintains a secure fit without being restrictive on the trail. Shifted seams reduce the likelihood of chafing when you're pedaling up techy singletrack sections and plunging into rock laden descents. Zippered pockets grace the shorts' side and rear sections, storing trail snacks and small accessories within easy access. Rounding things out, reflective logo and print details maintain excellent visibility upon return to dark trailheads on late evening rides.
