Part of Gore's C5 collection, the Bib Shorts+ sport a sleek 'Slim' fit that sits in the middle of their cuts.


Gore's C5 Bib Shorts+ for women are made from supportive, figure-hugging fabric that will allow you to ride in comfort for miles on end. With an inseam leg length of 25cm/10inches these shorts are suitable for those who are looking for a little extra coverage.


The chamois pad is designed for longer rides and is so comfortable you'll barely even know it's there. Toilet breaks are also a doddle as the easy opening two-zip design allows you to keep your bibs on as you go about your business. The zips are secure, but easy to open - even with gloves on.


Cycling specifics include mesh bib straps for increased ventilation, a hook closure that runs over the breastbone to ensure the bib straps stay in place and reflective detailing.


These bib shorts perform exceptionally well in conditions at around 16° - 24°C.

GORE Size Guide

GORE offer a full range of fits and sizing, so it's important to check both the dimensions and the fit chart (scroll to the bottom) to understand whether the product you're interested in is Slim Fit, Form Fit or Active Fit.

As a large, global company, Gore's sizing is - in our experience - sensible for realistically proportioned women!

      Fit Chart

      Gore Fit Guide

      Slim Fit  A deliberately tight, athletic fit that hugs the body closely. Slim Fit products are designed to be lightweight and minimise air resistance as well as maximising the technical properties of the fabric - like breathability and moisture management. If you're in doubt, size up.

      Form Fit  Neither skin tight nor too baggy, Form Fit offers what Gore describe as a 'sporting silhouette' without being body hugging. If you're between two sizes, we suggest choosing the larger of the two.

      Active Fit  Designed for a looser, more relaxed fit, these products suit a wide range of wearers while still Gore's unique benefits. With these products the size you usually buy should fit well.

       

      When Bill Lee Gore founded Gore in 1958, it all started with a father-son experiment in their basement insulating electrical wires. It evolved over the years until they became recognised experts at making 'microporous' plastics - materials that let certain liquids and gases through in certain directions.


      Sounding familiar yet? It should - this was where Gore-Tex came from. Like hoovers, velcro and sellotape, Gore-Tex has become a household name - today it's synonymous with waterproof kit that keeps you totally dry from the rain whilst remaining breathable and unsweaty.


      But all waterproofs are not alike, and Gore-Tex remain ahead of the field for waterproofing technology, making waterproof gear like the ground-breaking, gob-smacking ShakeDry, that still keeps them ahead of the pack.


      And now it's more than just practical and brilliant - recent years have seen them begin to create ranges that look every bit as awesome as they work - understatedly cool and flattering.
