For those who've grown attached to their summer bib shorts, Gore developed its new Contest SO Men's Tights+ without a chamois. Now you're able to stay true to those familiar shorts on cool-weather rides, with the added benefit of a smooth protecting layer over the top.
The Gore Contest SO Tights were constructed using WindStopper Soft Shell material. WindStopper is soft, stretchy, breathable, and just as importantly, body-contouring. It fits and breathes like a comfortable mid-layer fabric, yet it provides a level of water- and wind-resistance that approaches the protection afforded by hardshell fabrics. The remaining sections of the tights are made with fleece-backed, polyester/elastane blends that support and insulate your hard-working muscles against the cold. Flatlock seams are also used throughout the tights in order to minimize friction against your skin.
The Contest also features gripper elastics on the bottom hems to keep the fit secure, as well as reflective-lined ankle zippers. A concealed back zip pocket was also added, keeping your keys and other small valuables safe.
The Gore Bike Wear Contest SO Tights+ are available in sizes Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black and Black/neon yellow.
