C5 Optiline Bib Short+
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.

The MOST comfortable Bibs
- I've put it through the wringer
- Size Bought:
- 5' 9"
These are by far the most comfortable bibs I have ever worn. Great for spin class or century rides. I could go on and on and on....

- I've used it several times

- 5' 8"
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.

Excellent Bibs - Highly Recommend
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Size Bought:
- 5' 8"
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.
