Description

From March road tours in Spain to muddy season mountain biking, these waterproof breathable pants keep you dry.

Don't let a little precip prevent you from getting out -- pull on the GORE Bike Wear Men's Alp X Bike Pants and get bomber protection from rain, sleet, and hail. GORE Bike Wear made these pants using its Gore-Tex Paclite material, which is super lightweight, packable, breathable, and guaranteed to keep you dry. 

The slim-fit Alp X Pants are pre-shaped to a biker's posture and have reinforcement in the seat to resist wear. A high-cut back helps stop puddles from splashing your under layer, and the elasticized waist with a drawcord lets you get a comfy fit regardless of your base layers' thickness. Adjustable leg cuffs mean these pants go on over your shoes and ensure you don't get these pants caught in your chain. Take off the Alp X Pant and stuff into its own back pocket to carry should the weather improve.

not for mtb

the product is too delicate. one mtb ride and they are completely ruined. thorns left almost invisible cuts and they are don't stand light rain anymore.

Simple and perfect

I've been a long-distance bicycle tourist for over 40 years, and have built my "gear stash" over that time. These pants mark the finish of my gear pursuit. I looked at them for years, was oh-so-interested in buying them, but simply could not justify the price. My rain jacket is an Arc Teryx Pac Lite (puprchased on-line and on sale), and it has functioned so wonderfully well, I was hoping a cycling-specific PacLite rain pant would complete the set.

Well, the came on sale and I (6'1", 185lb) picked-up a large. Oh, am I glad I did! I've worn them in full rainstorms, at 40f with a big wind and only shorts underneath, and put them on taken them off without removing my size 13 cycling shoes.

Simply the best. I hope I live to ride through many a rainy day with this wonderful gear.

I am looking at these pants for trail running, how is the fit. So often pants are baggy. I am 5-9 165-170 31 waist and getting smaller. I also bike ride street and mtn bijke. Any information. The pct is one of my favorite trails in the sierras.

They're a slim fit so they're a better choice than the Ultra pant. They also have stretch GORE-TEX® in the thigh as well.

Have a 29 inch waist, am 5'6 110 lbs, what size should I get? I plan to wear them over 3/4 bike shorts that have a chamois. Thanks.

Responded on

I would go for a Small, should be perfect.

If it doesn't fit, have faith in Realcyclist's awesome exchange policy!

Hope that helps,

Portland Must

I use these pants almost daily in Portland. I really really love them, They keep me dry but are breathable and keep my legs feeling fresh, no swamp leg feeling. The velcro closure are crucial so take care of them. If not they look like disco pants.

If you race cross they are a must. If you live in the NW or NE just as useful.

Don't buy any cheeper options

delivers in the clutch

For everything from snowshoeing, to clearing out manifests in the pouring rain, to commuting from work in a blizzard, these pants have delivered in spades. What's to say? They're a slimmer fitting, Gore Tex pant that will keep you dry, and keep you moving.

* typically wear around a 29 or 30 in the waist, like to keep things slim, so I went with the Small, and wear these over 3/4 or full length tights - if you plan to wear them over street clothes, I would hop up a size

I wear a size large, with a short inseam, will these pants endure a shortening of 6 inches and still function properly?
Thanks, Al.

There is a velcro closure at the bottom leg opening which would need to be relocated as it is what enables you to tighten the leg opening. Dave - GORE BIKE WEAR™

Yes, I love these pants. I think I finally found the right commuting pants for me. Just make sure If you think you wear a large, go with a extra-large.I did not realize euro size were smaller.

Hi all,

I'm considering buying this item. But do I have to wear tights underneath this Pant ? Or just a classic underwear is OK ?

Best Answer Responded on

They are not insulated, which helps them be a multi-season pant. So layer with insulated tights on the cold days, bike shorts for extra padding on long rides, or plain old whitey tighties.

I would agree with Damon's comments

Tough fit

this is a tough product to design no doubt: by purpose should be a tight fit, windproof water proof fabrics don't have much elasticity, need to keep fit tight to not drag wind...
so, they fit tight, not much room for johnson and the boys, not much flex in the fabric. I had to go to a L with my stock frame, legs are long now but not un manageable. pretty good system to velcro up the slack in the leg, could have a larger velcro area.
because of the long size I had to get the 'flex' areas of the legs don't line up with my knees, again I'm stocky...
good product overall.

bullet proof pants

the pants seem to be cut a little small around the waist....but if i got the next size larger they would be way too long. i rode Christmas day up hwy 1 in north Sonoma co. and i'm very glad to have my alp x pants. the ride started in sun, but i was hit by three storm squalls that were racing down the coast. the first had a mix of hail and sleet in with the rain....i was able to pull off the road under a evergreen tree and change out of my tights into the alp x pants...the pants worked very well, and i was able to stay warm and dry. i've had other rain pants that leaked water through the zippers and i was fine with out a zipper in the front...i was just a little more exposed when i pulled the down to pee. i really enjoy the fit around the knees and the Velcro tabs to tighten the leg around my ankles. the pants do a great job of keeping out the wind and kept me warm and dry

I usually wear what American sizes would call 32-33 (Zoic, Pearl Izumi).I heard Gore sizing is not very standard.From the sizing chart here, I would choose that M would fit me, but from what I read somewhere else, L would be fine.Can you please make a suggestion?Thanks,Adrian

Its a slimmer cut pant so I would go with a large for a bigger fit and medium for a tigter fitDave - GORE BIKE WEAR™
