While colorful burst of foliage and brisk breezes have us waxing poetic about the autumnal utopias and gleefully planning evenings of spiced beverages and the annual unpacking of our favorite fleece pullovers, the one thing we aren't looking forward to is knee warmers and their inevitable bunchy, pinchy discomfort. Gore Bike Wear swoops in to save autumn with its Men's Power Plus Bib Knickers, providing much-needed knee coverage and eliminating the unsightly lines and readjusting ride interruptions we've grown to tolerate with knee warmers. Paired with your favorite long-sleeve jersey and streamlined gilet, these knickers are just the ticket for brisk days in the saddle.
Made from a mix of breathable synthetic fabrics, these knickers provide support while effortlessly wicking moisture away to keep you comfortable and dry through shifting intensities and terrain. They include Gore's Power Men insert for long-mile comfort without unnecessary bulk, and feature reflective elements to increase visibility to motorists in low light and dreary conditions.

These knickers are exactly like the Gore Element knickers but cost $40 more. They are both made of really thin lycra. They are not made of fleece or anything warm. The only difference is the name of the chamois. I have not ridden on either of them, but I have compared them side by side. Both chamois look exactly alike. Same thickness. Same surface. It's not like the expensive one has gel in it or anything special. It does have a fleece, Roubaix-type material panel at the front of the chamois, whereas the cheaper one just extends up the front like normal, but they're the same overall size and shape. I'm sending them back and keeping the cheaper ones. The Element pair fit a little better anyway. They are made in Romania. These are made in China. Maybe that's why. So why do these knickers cost $40 more? Thanks, Gore.
