Cover those knees.
Providing the knee coverage your go-to bib shorts lack, but still leaving enough space for heat to escape at your ankles, knickers are as much as sign of fall riding as bright orange leaves and wool jerseys. Whether you're a knicker devotee or are leery to try another pair after fit issues, we'd suggest giving the 7mesh Industries Men's Strata Knicker a look. Constructed to work as part of a system with the brand's Foundation liner, MK2 short, or any other liner you choose, the Strata comes with a far more adaptable construction than most difficult-to-fit knickers.
Removable suspenders mean you don't end wearing double bib straps for no reason if you choose a bib liner, and micro-stitch seaming keeps seams low-profile and less likely to cause irritation. Lightweight, stretchy Thermoroubaix fabric repels unexpected raindrops with its DWR treatment, while its brushed interior establishes a lofted layer of warmth next to your skin. This retains body heat without trapping it, pulling moisture away from your skin as your temperature rises and falls over the course of a hilly fall ride.
