Cool weather shorts.
If you like the versatility of leg warmers, Gore Bike Wear developed the ALP-X SO Shorts for you. It's constructed from Gore's WindStopper Soft Shell fabric so it's plenty warm for late season riding, and, when paired up with some thermal leg warmers, you'll be pedaling into winter.
The WindStopper soft shell fabric is a three-layer laminate that allows perspiration to escape while blocking chilly air. It does this without hindering breathability so you stay dry and comfortable whether you're working up a sweat or mach-ing down a descent. The shell is also stretchy for excellent freedom of movement and unrestricted pedaling.
Gore reinforced the seat of the Alp-X to prevent premature wear, and used a wide, elastic waist band. The waist adjusters are placed on the side where they won't interfere with packs. The legs are ergonomically shaped for pedaling, and Gore also added reflective piping along the legs for low-light safety.
The reflective treatment doesn't stop there, logos on the front and back, and inserts on the hems are all reflective to give you an edge when it's dark out. Gore Bike Wear gave the Alp-X SO Shorts two zipped back pockets for stashing a wallet or keys. It's available in Black, and comes in sizes Small through XX-Large.
