Banish the specter of a soggy, freezing chamois forever with Gore Bike Wear's Alp-X 2.0 Gore-Tex Women's Pants. The venerable gear manufacturer goes overboard with the protection, sandwiching a wind- and waterproof Gore-Tex membrane between a protective shell and a gentle liner. The pants also feature a durable seat panel that stands up to the saddle for years of use while letting you wear your favorite summer-weight shorts underneath.

The fit is designed to keep the legs from rubbing loudly on your bike, saddle, and each other. The legs are also thin enough to stay out of your chainring but roomy enough to allow for layering. A slightly taller rear yolk maintains coverage while you're stretched out on the bars, and reflective elements help keep you visible in the kind of dark and stormy conditions where you'll want this level of protection.

Made my Rainy Rides in Ireland Great!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

These pants delivered ! All the things I hated about wearing rain pants ( hot, noisy, ill fitting, and constraining) are now just a distant memory. These pants kept me dry and comfortable on very wet rides through western Ireland. And they breath so well and are so easy to ride in, that I was very happy to wear them on windy, misty rides, too. They are articulated so there is no annoying pulling at the knees while pedaling. They make a little bit noise while pedaling but not bad. And as far as rain pants go, they are surprisingly flattering : no bagging around the butt or waist. A small design improvement would be for the ankle Velcro closing to allow for a snugger closing and assure chain clearance. I usually wear a women's size 6-8 or Medium and the Women's Large fit well.

Great pants after all...

Found out about pants' leg bands; in particular, a product by Deuter that is a bit wider than most other straps I've seen, so it holds the pant leg more securely. It also has a 3-M Scotch Lite reflective strip and secure velcro closure.

Gore seems to run on the small side (aside from the REALLY baggy legs of these), recommend order one size up & get the Deuter leg band (the one I got retails at $11.00, look for that one); your local bike shop will probably have to special order it from their catalog, as did my favorite shop; or go directly to the Deuter safe...good-to-go!

Thank you for the suggestion. DO you know what is funny about these pants ? that I got caugnt in my bycicle chain one day when I was riding in my Gore pants...(after six months of using them) I called Gore and they gave me one website where they repair Gore products. They sent me to Amazon to buy the repair kit, is available as ( McNett Gore-Tex Fabric Repair Kit ). I have not done the repair yet but I will sure let you know if this works or not. It has good reviews at least. Hope you don't get caught with your leg band that you are recommending. I will try to get one for sure.

For Cycling...Really???

    In theory, these would be great...everything in the reveiw was just what I was looking for, even a looser fit (thought they may also be worn OVER another pair of pants for extra warmth & protection); but from the knee down they were just way too baggy! I think these should stay on the "mountian". The velcro didn't stick together like it should, and even so, they were still too baggy, and could easily get caught up in the chain,etc. So dissapointed, had to send back. Might be good for hiking, unless you want to bungy or tape the pants around your calves/ankles! No insulation, just basically a shell...which still would have been o.k. if they would have designed them more "cycle" friendly.

    Still like the concept of these weather...

    Still like the concept of these weather resistant pants...does anyone have any actual experience riding with do you manage the extra material at the lower leg and not getting it caught-up in the bike? Or, is there another brand that would also fit the bill ( I don't know who does weather protection better besides Gore), but fit better? I mountain/trail ride mostly. Thanks for any helpful tips!

    I actually think that Gore bike pants are really good. I have been riding in these since November 2012 in New York City and I've been always dry, and although they do not have a inner layer for cold I use them on top of my tights. They are like a windbreaker... they are long enough to cover the boots if it rains and to allow you comfortably to ride. Sometimes the material on the lower leg rubs my chain but I haven't been caught yet. It doesn't happen to me frequently. I am 5' 6 " and 152 lb. I chose the size XL. For me I do not care if I look baggy, I went for the extra-protection. There are two Velcro attachments and I use the vertical one.

    Thanks, cla...that's the reason I wanted these, too (extra protection). I'm the same basic build and the large was too close for going over the tights comfortably. Maybe I'll give them another try...still concerned about entanglement in the chain...but you've had no real problem...maybe someone else has a "trick" for keeping the bottom leg out of trouble...Thanks again!
