Make wind your friend, not your foe.
While Mother Nature is kind enough to grant us food sources and raw materials to sustain ourselves, she can be quite the adversary to cycling. We're not sure what prehistoric humans did to turn her off from us riding, but it must have been a bad breakup. However, when her wind and rain are howling, the Gore Bike Wear Phantom SO Bib Tights level out the playing field like an apologetic bouquet of flowers. With an anatomic, pre-shaped fit and weather-fighting proprietary fabric construction, the Phantom SO Bib Tights let you roll through the scorn of winter unscathed.
Gore Bike Wear's Phantom SO Bib Tights are made from Gore's patented WindStopper Soft Shell fabric. Like its name suggests, WindStopper is windproof, but it's also water-resistant and highly breathable. In combination with the Phantom SO's full-leg, high-torso design, the bib tights provide total insulation by trapping a layer of warm air above the skin while allowing excessive heat and moisture to escape. The Bib Tights also feature a precise anatomical fit with a design that provides a barely-there wear quality. To achieve this, Gore incorporated shifted seams throughout the tights, pre-shaped knees, and used adjustable elastic bib straps to guarantee a personalized fit. Additionally, the Bib Tights use gripper elastic at the leg cuffs, and the bib strap panel is removable, so the Phantoms can be worn as tights or a bib. For use as tights, the waistband is fully adjustable. The Phantom SO also use the ergonomic Power Lady chamois insert, and a reflective treatment on the front and side panels of the bib tights for safer night riding.
The Gore Bike Wear Phantom SO Bib Tights are available in sizes X-Small through XX-Large, and in the colors Black, Black/white, and Black/hot pink.
