We love bibs for their support and smooth wrap along our torsos, but when the weather turns cold, and layers really begin piling up, we find that straps occasionally get a little constricting up top. With this in mind, Gore developed its new Contest SO Women's Tights+ for those who prefer the comfort and support provided through a more traditional tights design.
Gore Contest SO Tights+ were constructed with its 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 women's-specific Power Lady chamois rounds out these tights. A workhorse on medium to long rides, the chamois has channeling on top, and a stretchy micro-fiber that wicks moisture away from the body. The seamless design and cushioning properties provide an anatomical fit that keeps your sit bones and soft tissue comfortable for miles in the cold.
These Contest tights 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 Women's Tights+ are available in the color Black and in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large.
