Since the name Gore Bike Wear is synonymous with protection from the elements, you might expect the Power 2. 0 Thermo Bib Tights Plus to live up to their billing as thermal regulators on cold rides. You'd be right, as the brushed inner lining traps body heat but wicks away moisture so you stay warm without suffering an accumulation of cold, clammy moisture after a hard interval. Rear panels of thermo mesh dump excess heat on long climbs or sustained effort, and the Power Men's chamois targets comfort on rides of two to four hours perfect for cold weather base miles. Reflective piping at the hem helps keep you visible on either side of short winter days when sunlight is at a premium.
