Gore Xenon III women's shorts review£94.99

Female-specific riding wear

BikeRadar score3.5/5

Cycling shorts for women are a bit like saddles – men’s ones just won’t cut it. Most importantly, female-specific pads are very different shapes to account for key differences in anatomy.

The shape of the shorts also needs to account for wider hips and smaller waists, so more panels generally mean a better fit.

These Gore Xenon III shorts have a wide and flat waistband around the front, which reduces any digging in when leaning forward on the bike.

The pad is close fitting and comfortable on long rides, and the wide leg grippers effectively stop the fabric riding up when pedalling.
