These socks are pretty straightforward. They are particularly thin, but they don't really bunch. The size L was also a bit large for my 10.5 size foot, but that did not matter much. They lose a star because they're not really "no-show." I suppose that when compared to crew socks or mid-calfs, then sure, these are short, but there was still a good inch or two sticking out of the top of my shoe. In that, they were actually longer than the socks I normally use to ride.
These shorts were enough to make Descente my new go-to brand for clothing. I like them so much that not only did I buy a second pair, but I don't want to wear any of my other shorts. If someone gave me a big bundle of money to buy bike stuff, the first thing I would get would be several more pairs of these shorts.
What's the difference between the Gore Tool cycling glove, the Gore Countdown cycling glove, and the Gore Xenon cycling glove? Which is best for long rides in 15-35 degree weather?
My hands (and feet) get really cold when cycling, but I worry about not being able to control my bike (particularly on descents) if I'm wearing really thick gloves and can't feel the brakes or shifters. I presume that these gloves will keep my hands warm, but are they so thick that I won't be able to feel my hands on the bars, brakes, and shifters?
