C5 Optiline Bib Shorts+

Realizing that even the warmest days in the saddle can often encounter whipping winds, Gore Wear designed their Men's C5 Optiline Bib Shorts+ with the newest Gore Windstopper Cup technology. This technology is comprised of an ergonomic, upturned panel of windproof fabric that blocks oncoming winds and relieves pressure along your most sensitive bits. It's combined with Gore's Advanced Road chamois for plush, moisture-wicking support that satisfies even the most discerning of cyclists with multiple densities of foam cushioning.

Delving into the construction of this premium bib short, you'll find it's made of lightweight, breathable materials optimized for riding in warm conditions. Full mesh bibs provide upright stability while breathing extraordinarily well when the mercury skyrockets in summertime. Optimized seam placement reduces the scratchiness inherent to cheaper bib shorts where stitching digs into sensitive skin, only to lead to chafing and irritation after hours of non-stop riding. Additionally, you'll find a lie-flat hem that remains firmly in place, but without uncomfortable bunching or pressure points.

  • Soft and supportive bib shorts with breeze-blocking comfort
  • Gore WindStopper Cup blocks the wind from your sensitive bits
  • Advanced Road chamois balanced plush padding with freedom
  • Lightweight, moisture-wicking materials regulate temperature
  • Full mesh bib construction for breathability on warmer days
  • Optimized seam placement eliminates irritation of your skin
  • Lie-flat hems stay firmly in place without pinching
  • Item #GWR003M

This is more a review about the shipment method. I would pay extra to just have UPS deliver the package to my house, than have it sent to the Post Office. I ordered something after I ordered these and it was delivered via UPS and I already received the order before I got these bibs. The current status on my bibs is that USPS is still waiting to create their own shipping label to get it to my house which is nearly 1 mile away from the facility. The USPS facility received my bibs over 2 days ago, from the time this review was made. They've literally just been sitting in their facility. I can't go pick them up either. I have to wait until USPS gets their crap in order to make a shipping label and send them 1 mile down the road to my house.

I ordered this bib in M and L. The large chamois sat like a diaper and was obviously too big. Medium fit like a glove. It sits where it needs to be and doesn't move when you walk. The bib starts just above the knee and isn't overly tight yet doesn't have any movement when riding. The shoulder straps are wide, soft and don't have an uncomfortable pull. There is no "cup" cut out that may seem that exists in the photos. Thats just the way stitching comes together and is an optical illusion in the photo. They did place a piece of fabric between the outer bib and the chamois over the groin area to block the wind and it work really well. However, don't expect a special cup cut out for your junk. Unfortunately everything gets compressed like in all the other bibs. Overall, the material sits tight and doesn't move. I'm average build and unlike Castelli bibs, where I need to order 2 sizes up, this one truly fits for an average US male. I was comfortable in this chamois on multiple 30 mile rides and had no issues.

What a great pair of bib shorts. I'm 5' 8" and the length of the legs was perfect: Just above the knee when standing. Light compression and very comfortable. I wanted something with some "styling" and the white accents on the legs fit my interests. Great shammy. Highly recommend you consider these bib shorts.

First pair of quality bibs that are super comfortable for me. Shoulder straps are stretchy enough to do the job while comfortable on the shoulders. The “cup” works for me as well instead of just trying to smash the bits.

these bibs are great! first time i wore them i did a grand fondo (103 miles) and the chamois was just what i needed for a long day in the saddle. the material is 100% made for summer / spring weight for hot to warm days in the sun. or could be a perfect under-layer for chamoisless tights. fits like a glove. love them!
