Product Reviews
GORE® C5 Opti Bib Shorts+ is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great Gore choice I've been buying Gore cycling gear for 20 years now, and the consistency of quality and fit continues to impress me. These bibs are a really close fit and the insert is comfy enough for medium-long rides . As ever they're well made, easy to wash and I'm sure will still be getting worn regularly for the next few years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made and comfortable Unfortunately I have ordered the same size as Castelli. For Gore I need a size smaller. Still.this product is great. Can't complain. Will buy again

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good quality, but not perfect The shorts feel great, good quality soft fabric, and the leg grippers are a nice touch. The legs on these fit really well, the grippers stay in place and they look good. My main issue is with the straps, there is virtually no resistance and neither so I have to keep pulling the waist fabric up as it sags down during riding. Also not sure about the pad, it chafes on one side after 20 miles or so, almost as if it isn't quite central, which severely limits the amount of comfortable riding I do. Overall pretty disappointed, these shorts, and Gore, seem to get a lot of positive reviews, but they are not a patch on the Rapha shorts I have been wearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable Worn 10 times so don’t know about long term quality yet but first impressions are good. Fit is quite loose (not much compression compared to Rapha - but definitely not baggy) this make them super comfy. Pretty good looking (tho would prefer less intrusive branding). Feel like a good alternative to more expensive Rapha equivalents at the moment...but time will tell!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sizing is off I have a large number of Gore shorts, they are all medium and they are all super tight. These are much baggier and the length of the leg and the width of the elastic means that the shorts are continually pulled down while you are riding. That means that the seat pad does not sit in place and I continually ride around pulling the thigh up to ensure that the seat pad is in place. If the shorts were tighter it would not be a problem. The straps on the bibs are also really long. I can easily pull the strap up to nigher than the top of my head. This means that they do not hold the shorts up. The seat pad is good. Construction is good. Sizing is weird. I am 31-32 inch waist. 179cm tall and 72kgs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Bib-shorts These are a comfortable pair of Bib-shorts which is just what you want for a long ride. The windstopper area at the front is perfect for keeping the chill off those delicate areas. Before I had these I often resorted to wearing a second pair of shorts on top which was never ideal. The hem colours add style and match the c5 jersey.
