Gore took many different anatomically cut compression panels and fasioned them into a womens-specific fitting cycling short. The seams are all flatlocked for smooth transtions between the panels. A large Yoga style waist band is used to properly distribute pressure and preovide long term comfort.
The ends of the legs have long doubled over compression lycra which offer support but across a greater area for more comfort than a small elastic band found on most short designs.
The chamois is multi layered with several densities to conform to different areas of your body. Pinpointing areas that require extra padding or cushion and being low profile in other areas where freedom of movement is necessary. Small silicone dots are added at the cuff end to keep the shorts from riding up your leg. 8" length leg is industry current standard for women.
