Your legs can get wet, your arms can get wet, but nothing kills the buzz of a perfect trail more than a muddy backside or a waterlogged chamois. Gore Bike Wear has designed the highly portable and guaranteed waterproof Alp-X GT Shorts to keep you riding fast and dry, even when the trail is anything but. In addition to keeping a pair on hand for wet mountain bike rides, if you are planning a bikepacking or touring trip, the Alp-X is an absolute essential.The Alp-X GT shorts are constructed from lightweight and supremely stashable Gore-Tex Paclite, so you roll them into their own double-sided zippered back pocket and keep them stowed away in your pack, or you can hit the trail with them on. With its supreme light weight, Paclite isn't Gore's most abrasion-resistant fabric, so Gore engineered all of the short's saddle contact points with a heavier, more durable fabric (with the waterproof membrane beneath) to ensure a lifetime of reliable use. The short is also designed to stretch, allowing for a streamlined fit that layers comfortably with your riding tights, but still moves with your body as you pedal.The Gore Bike Wear Alp-X GT Shorts are available in black, and in sizes X-Small through XX-Large. They have a 34cm (13in) inseam, and drawcords at the hem openings so you can dial in a more secure fit around your legs. Reflective hits on the sides and back of the shorts help keep you visible if you're out on the road after dusk.
