Gore Bike Wear Xenon II

Our review

Best all-round fit, performance and comfort
Skip to view product specifications

An old favourite and though heavy on test it still packs into a jersey pocket. 


The Xenon’s strength lies in its all-day comfort and performance.  The Gore-Tex Windstopper fabric delivers excellent windproof performance and breathability. 


It’s also fairly water resistant, the seams being the only entry point for moisture. The anatomic cut is designed specifically for the bike so it’s not baggy but there is room for varying your layers.
