Gore Bike Wear Vista WS Tights and Xenon AS Jacket Review

We review the Vista WS tights and Xenon AS jacket from Gore Bike Wear.

are half elastic and half Velcro closure. I found this to be tight but flexible and able to adapt to various layers. The tuxedo style tail is the longest I've ever seen yet the cut in the front is at the waistline. The elastic on the sides keeps it snug to the body and functions perfectly while in the drops. The jacket doesn’t flap around in the wind. It is an aerodynamic based fit. The tapered reflectorized blocks are sporty looking. After your ride, you can place the jacket in the enclosed compact ventilated stuff sack.

I was most impressed with the performance oriented cut of Gore Bike Wear. The pocketless jacket is probably an indication of this. Details such as the form fitting cut in the elbows and the composition of the panels in the tights make me appreciate the design. I was also impressed that the lightweight clothing was able to block the wind and keep me warm in cold, wet, windy, rainy, and snowing weather conditions.  I’ve been wearing the tights daily in place of my knickers. Gore Bike Wear states the weather is not your enemy but your challenge. If your riding is weather challenged, I have found Gore Bike Wear to be a worthy product.
