Welcome the cooler air.
Your rotation of go-to summer kits have been loyal to you beyond reproach through the hot, sunny peak of your cycling season, but it's tough to not get excited when a fall chill weaves its way into the air. Away go the featherweight climbing jerseys and minimal bib shorts and out come the wool, long sleeves, and knickers for a season of reprieve from the relentless heat. If your knicker collection has dwindled in the past few years, the Gore Bike Wear Women's Element Plus Knicker will quickly refresh it with a functional construction and clean fit.
Though known for its weatherproof shell fabrics, Gore designed the Element Plus to provide more coverage in cooler temps without making you overheat, with a more minimal construction than its Windstopper pieces. The knicker's length allows it to cover and insulate your knees, and the stretchy main fabric's combination of nylon and elastane fibers equips it to wick moisture away from your skin rapidly while holding its shape over the miles. Gore lines the knicker with its Element Women chamois to provide lightweight, flexible support and relief in the saddle whether you're out for a quick spin or an all day ride as well, while elastic endings holding each leg hem gently in place. As you take in the fall foliage, the wide, high waistband provides the support you need so you aren't distracted from the views.
