Rated 1 out of 5 by mary mary super cute, stretchy, good length
The pad in thee are just not good. The foam is much too compressive to provide support. In addition, the pad stays wet for a very long time when you wash them so I do not think they will handle moisture in the summer. They are not medium they are short distance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Marie3 a good pair of shorts, not great
I purchased mine on sale and they were still expensive. They are fairly comfortable for rides up to 30 miles, beyond that the chamois gets uncomfortable. I wish the fabric were more compressive but love the longer length and leg bands stay in place. I used Gore apparel in the past for skiing so am looking forward to using their cycling garments, especially the winter garments as I plan to ride in the winter. I am 5'10" and need long tights and I hear Gore has long tights so I'll check them out. Thanks Gore!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Karen Upgrade to Xenon
As stated in the description, the seamless design and comfortable waist are a no-brainer but chamois does not provide for superlative comfort for more than an hour. The shorts have a slightly compressive nylon and elastane fabric to construct the shorts, so not much compression. Also as stated the fabric places these shorts in the middle. That being said there is no comparison, having purchased both the Power 3.0 & the Xenon 2.0. The performance & quality of the Power short & pales in conparsion to the Xenon. While I did initially recommend to a friend, I now regret it as we both wince on long rides in the Power short. So if you can spend a little more you will not regret it!
