Empowering.

Anyone who spends time obsessively navigating the world of cycling shorts eventually concludes that there are a lot of gimmicky "innovations" behind some of the more expensive names in the industry. If you're not keen to do the obsessive navigation yourself, Gore Bike Wear has simplified the process by adapting only the necessary, proven technology in its men's Power 3.0 Bib Tight Shorts+ — all while keeping the price at a level that empowers the non-sponsored among us with sponsorship-level kit.

The main body material is a synthetic blend that puts the emphasis on hours-long comfort and years-long durability. Its gentle compression helps eliminate the gradual accumulation of fatigue by controlling the vibrations of road noise and helping your muscles self-stabilize, while the addition of elastane gives the shorts a stretchiness that makes them fit like a second skin.

Gore scored a ringer for the insert, bringing Elastic Interface into the game with the Power Men's chamois. The Power insert features two densities of foam across its varied topography, and the Anti-Vibration System supports weight horizontally, netting less smoosh and more cushion. The chamois doesn't flatten out immediately, so there is more protection between you and the saddle to absorb road noise and the occasional bump.

The Power 3.0 shorts' race-worthy fit is built with shifted seams to artfully dodge sensitive areas and reduce chafing during hours in the saddle. The bibs are a folded mesh, so there's only a seam on the inner side of the straps, and their lightweight and high-stretch mean they virtually disappear once you pull them on. The shorts are finished with a wide compression band at the cuffs, which incorporates gripping elastic thread in the material itself — no print-on silicone here. Fluo highlights and reflective details arcing across the outer legs and back help get you noticed during daylight and when weather conditions or the clock conspire against you for low-light situations.

Very happy Very nice bibs

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large
  • Height: 6'3"
  • Weight: 185lbs

I really like these bibs. They look good, fit well, and are comfortable on long rides. The fit chart is pretty accurate. Nice pad, that's breaths well. I ordered large, which is like a race fit. I would probably be OK with XL too.

High Quality bibs

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great bibs with really great materials. In my opinion, Gore is the master of textiles and this is no exception. The fit is great, the support of the chamois through to manly parts region is the best I've experienced and you don't get any pinching or numbness. My only complaint is that the compression of the shorts is not the tightest - which leads to more perceived muscle vibration over rough roads and a bit more fatigue on the longer rides as opposed to brands like Castelli.

Quality Bib

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have tried many shorts in the past, but these are by far my favorite. No shoulder strap digging, chamois chaffing or inconsistent fit/compression. Perfect for 2-4 hour rides...a little chamois butter wouldn't hurt. Great looking and overall fit. I will be buying many more pairs of these!

Great for the price

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

For the money, you would be hard pressed to find a more comfortable pair of shorts. They stay in place, vent well, and run true to size. The chamois isn't on par with what you might find in a more expensive pair of shorts (hint: get yourself some chamois cream) but overall, these get the job done. I tore up my first pair in a wreck and liked them enough to buy them again.

First Pair, Worth Every Penny

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I have only had these for a week now, but have used them on several 30-40mile rides. Being the first bib shorts I've ever owned, I wasn't too sure what to expect. I've used bike shorts in the past and have always hated the restricting waist band, you don't get that with these GBW bib shorts. In fact, they are the most comfortable piece of cycling gear I have, so good in that I shaved 5 minutes off one of my favorite riding routes.



These shorts breath well, support the "boys", look good and feel great. I am a 5'11" 195lbs guy with a 36 waist, so I opted for the XL and I was spot on.

I can confirm bib shorts are awesome, but these in fact take me to a whole new realm of comfort and speed I never thought possible. The grippers on the legs fit quite well, don't slide around and don't constrict blood flow. These bibs don't evaporate sweat super quick in hot weather, but it's nothing to worry about. The chamois is very comfortable, after 30-40 mile rides I have no gripes about them.

Unanswered Question

also, anyone know the difference between this and the gore wear oxygen bib (http://www.competitivecyclist.com/gore-bike-wear-oxygen-bibtights-short-mens) they look very similar?
