Few activities demand the same level of technical apparel as cycling. From the bicycles themselves, all the way to the clothing, manufacturers are constantly striving to achieve the next wave of comfort Nirvana. And luckily for you, Gore Bike Wear has managed to set the bar on everything from materials to fit. That's why its Phantom SO Bib Knickers fall into the category of 'a big deal.' With removable bib straps, windproof fabrics, and a fit that second to none, the Phantom SO bib knickers are the perfect example of Gore's dedication to its craft -- the craft of perfection.

Unlike most bibs, the Phantom's straps are not only removable, but adjustable as well. This allows a comfortable fit on a variety of frames, not just jockeys. In fact, the Phantom is available in a XX-Large size for the stallions. The adjustable and removable uppers, however, are just one of the Phantom SO's intelligent features.

Gore's fabric selection is what puts the Phantom SO up on the mountain top above its rivals. It's constructed from the patented WindStopper soft shell fabric. A single-layer laminate, WindStopper is similar to the venerable Gore-Tex material, but instead of being fully waterproof, it characterizes water-resistance, windproof, and high breathability. This provides a heightened level of comfort during cool-weather, high aerobic activities.

For further water-resistance, Gore treated the Phantom with a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coating. Now, the Phantom SO offers a solid protection from light drizzles and road spray. However, where WindStopper really shines is on cold rides where you're going hard and perspiring heavily. The fabric is soft against the skin, and it quickly pulls perspiration away to keep you dry. Furthermore, WindStopper effectively regulates the internal temperature of the SO, so you can ride at max output without the risk of overheating.

Like the adjustable straps, material is just one contributing factor to the Phantom's comfort. Gore Bike Wear went to great lengths to ensure that the fit compliments the function of bib knickers. So, to maintain an unobtrusiveness, the multi-panel Phantom SO uses flatlock seams to provide a next-to-skin fit that eliminates abrasion and constriction.

Even further along these lines, Gore uses its PowerMan chamois in the Phantom SO to bring support and comfort over long distances. Anatomically designed, the PowerMan is elastic, so it moves with you, not against you. It's also optimized for ventilation and breathability, with a special outer fabric that enhances moisture absorption and ensures rapid wicking to the outer-layer.

The Gore Bike Wear Phantom SO Bib Knickers are available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the color Black.
