Your Next Go-To Pair Of Shorts

Hop on your bike and go explore new roads, new trails, and new horizons. While you pedal you can also enjoy the lightweight, flexible, and breathable comfort of the GORE® WEAR Explore Cycling Shorts. Created for the adventure cyclist, these shorts are at home on just about any ride, from pavement to true off-roading.

When you venture away from the Tarmac, explore new comfort and performance with a trail-ready kit. These shorts use a stretch woven fabric, completely new to GORE® WEAR, that has allowed them to create a functional all-day riding short — complete with a streamlined silhouette. Thanks to its stretch, a closely tailored fit can be achieved while also maintaining complete freedom for your pedaling movement. A rear panel provides durable water-resistant protection from wheel-spray, helping to keep your shorts dry and grit-free.

Storage options are plentiful, with two front pockets, a zipped thigh pocket, and a back pocket making space to keep essentials within easy reach. To keep the shorts firmly in place you'll find a silicone gripper on the inside of the waistband, while adjustment buckles let you dial in the fit as you like it. Whether you wear alone or over padded liner shorts, the GORE® WEAR Men's Explore Shorts offer the ideal combination of protection, style, and versatility for gravel riding, mountain biking, and bikepacking.
