Stay warm and stay dry in these technical Windstopper softshell trousers from Gore Bike Wear. If you want the flexibility of Lycra without actually wearing Lycra, these have plenty of stretch in a slim fit, plus the comfort of a soft mid-layer and the water resistance of a shell. Plus, you get total windproofness, maximum breathability and reflective logos on the sides and back. Available in black, they’re available in five sizes.
