When the mercury drops, you need to protect your lower half without compromising anything to comfort. Essentially, you need the Gore Bike Wear Oxygen SO Bib Tights. These tights provide lower-body protection during winter road cycling. And with Gore's patented WindStopper Soft Shell fabric manning the helm, you'll retain warmth and block out cold wind, all without compromising comfort or fit.
However, it's also worth noting that you're not going to overheat in the Oxygen SO bib tights. To ensure this, a mesh panel on the stirrup provides improved wicking and ventilation in changing weather. At the front, however, a WindStopper panel reinforces this bibs' cold-weather prowess. The Oxygen SO is also stitched together with flatlock seams, which creates a closer fit to the skin that's also free from abrasion.
Gore Bike Wear added a front zipper for entry and exit of the bib tights. And to further comfort, Gore also included an Elastic Interface Technology (EIT) chamois. This chamois uses a variable density throughout the pad in order to support the regions that need the most support, without impacting the ones that don't. And for EIT, the support focus is primarily placed at the perineal, ischial, and gluteal areas — the points that are most prone to distress from saddle pressure and compression. With its anatomic, Elastic Interface design, the EIT chamois creates an abrasion-free support that promotes an increased circulation by protecting nerves like the pudendal. Even more impressive, the chamois is road-specific. EIT engineers realize that saddles and saddle positions vary throughout different disciplines of cycling, and the chamois' density patterns are mindful of the specific pressures of road cycling.
The Gore Bike Wear SO Bib Tights are available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black and Black/white.
