GORE BIKE WEAR MEN'S SHORTS/BIBS - ROAD
The folks at Gore Bike Wear don't make gear for folks who ride their bikes 8 days a year, and people who wear Gore Bike Wear don't ever have to wipe the dust off their bikes–at least not their daily drivers. This is very serious gear for very serious riders. Like everything else that Gore Bike Wear makes, Alp-X 2.0 Bibtight Short isn't for everyone. The Alp 2.0 is made with anti-abrasion materials, a high-tech gender-specific chamois pad, and a tight fit. None of these features benefit the guy who only rides his bike to the coffee shop, unless the coffee shop happens to be on the other side of the state.
Alp-X 2.0 Bibtight Shorts are made for long distance riders. Well-made compression fabrics will improve the fit without limiting movement or comfort. Most importantly, they promote blood flow through the most heavily used areas of the body, increasing oxygen flow and reducing fatigue. The compression material used for Alp-X 2.0 Bibtight Shorts will hug you without feeling constrictive. Gore has also been thoughtful enough to include abrasion resistant material at the inside of the leg and around the saddle area, since the last thing you want is a pair of shorts this good wearing out prematurely. The 11 inch (28cm) inseam length will leave you with a very pro looking tan line. The elastic gripper at the leg hems will hold the legs in place so there will be no slippage or bunching of the material. Reflective logos on the side and piping at the back of the legs will keep you visible to drivers even on those days you stay out a little past dark. And for those of you who like to have keys or ID as close and safe as possible, Gore has included a zip pocket on the side of the shorts.
The Alp-X 2.0 Bibtight comes with Gore's Alp-X Man Insert. Gore calls it the 'Tour Wonder' because it's designed specifically for multi-day off-road tours. This seamless pad is made with perforated foam that offers excellent breathing and ventilation for quick drying and easy temperature regulation. The high-profile Alp-X provides the most cushioning and shock absorption of any of Gore's chamois pads. The ergonomic shape and stretch make this pad a perfect choice for long-distance mountain bike rides.
Gore Bike Wear Alp-X 2.0 Bibtight Shorts are available in Black. The sizes range from Small through XX-Large.
