Banish the specter of a soggy, freezing chamois forever with Gore Bike Wear's Alp X 2. 0 Gore Tex Women's Pants. The venerable gear manufacturer goes overboard with the protection, sandwiching a wind and waterproof Gore Tex membrane between a protective shell and a gentle liner. The pants also feature a durable seat panel that stands up to the saddle for years of use while letting you wear your favorite summer weight shorts underneath. The fit is designed to keep the legs from rubbing loudly on your bike, saddle, and each other. The legs are also thin enough to stay out of your chainring but roomy enough to allow for layering. A slightly taller rear yolk maintains coverage while you're stretched out on the bars, and reflective elements help keep you visible in the kind of dark and stormy conditions where you'll want this level of protection.
