A perfect pairing with the autumn ready Element Gore Tex AS Jacket, the Gore Bike Wear Element Gore Tex AS Men's Pants perform the same set of tricks to make you nearly impervious to those chilly fall days, only for the lower half of your body. The Element Gore Tex AS Men's Pants are made with a true 2. 5 layer construction, which combines an outer layer that carries the color and reflective details, a Gore Tex layer, and an inner, protective scrim that only really counts as half a layer since it's integrated in the Gore Tex fabric. The Gore Tex is the important part, as that's where the moisture and thermal management goes down: water out, warmth in. Gore intentionally adds the modifier durably to waterproof and windproof because this jacket won't lose its resistances over the course of a season's use andor in the wash. Still, the Element Gore Tex pants are remarkably light and comfortable. The waist is drawcord adjustable and the knees are pre shaped for natural movement with you as you ride. The reinforced seat is also formed to minimize shifting and bunching of the fabric as you pedal. For practicality's sake, there's a zippered rear stow pocket, and the piping down the legs and all of the pants' logos are reflective for added visibility when the sun goes down. The Gore Bike Wear Element Gore Tex AS Men's Pants come in five sizes, from Small to XX Large, and in the color schemes Black and Blackneon yellow.
