One warm layer.
When the knee warmer and bib shorts combination just isn't cutting it, we know that late season temperatures have officially taken over. Rather than scratching our heads while we hunt for more layers, we make the transition to bib tights, as the smooth, non-constricting materials provide support and warmth for those frosty rides. Gore Bike Wear created its new Power 2.0 Thermo Bib Tights for this late season weather, and they're available with or without a chamois.
These bib tights use a lightly insulated nylon and elastane thermal fabric for the leg panels. This blend is effective in wicking and managing moisture through a push-pull system, allowing sweat to be drawn away from the skin immediately and pushed to the outer surface of the bibs, which increases comfort and helps maintain an optimal temperature. Flat lock seams keep the panels smooth against your skin, and the gripper elastic on the bottom hems hold the legs in place without snagging the skin or cutting off the circulation.
Gore included its Power Man seat insert to ensure that you to sit comfortably for hours. Gore calls this insert their workhorse, and they use it for these bib tights because they realize a lot of your off-season training will be constituted by long hours in the saddle. It has an anatomical fit with strategic elasticity and ventilation. How breathable an insert is has a lot to do with reducing any potential for humidity-caused rubbing and friction. With this in mind, the outer fabric of the Power Man insert is made from a hyper- moisture absorbing fabric.
Gore Power 2.0 Thermo Bib Tights come with a mesh insert at your back so that you feel well ventilated right where it's best to let some excess heat escape. Reflective elements were added throughout, ensuring that you remain visible to motorists in low-light riding conditions.
The Gore Bike Wear Power 2.0 Thermo Bib Tights are available in sizes Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black and Black/red. The Black color comes without a chamois and the Black/red comes with the Power Man chamois.
