Additional Information
Designed for endurance cyclists looking for a superb bib short for long distance rides.

Developed with professional WorldTour cyclist, Fabian Cancellara, these shorts were designed to address the needs of endurance cyclists, spending many hours in the saddle. Built for the long haul, technologies like low force elastic and flatlock seams ensure this short stays in place, no matter how far you ride.

Design Story

"Working with Fabian Cancellara we stripped back and examined the needs of cyclists spending very long hours in the saddle. Using an Expert Long Distance Seat Insert with GORE® WINDSTOPPER® Cup we have addressed the problems of pressure and chafing in the saddle area. Our central torso architecture keeps the chamois in place and a dense knit construction creates ultra soft next to skin feel, to reduce chafing in the body and legs of the short. Every design decision has been taken with the desire to ensure that endurance cyclists have nothing to irritate or distract them from the task of pedalling."

  • C7 LONG DISTANCE BIB SHORTS+ DESIGNED FOR MAXIMUM COMFORT ON LONG RIDES

    Engineered with our unique central torso architecture.
    The Expert Long Distance seat insert features the same design as the Expert Race seat insert but thanks to a somewhat more generous use of pressure-resistant foam, provides more comfort in various positions for long days.
    The wide bib straps are made of ultra-soft fabric, and the short’ thick knit fabric provides comfort even after many kilometers.
    Highly non-abrasive knitted 4-way stretch material delivers maximum comfort.

     
     
    Engineered with the central torso architecture so you can ride faster, cooler and more comfortably

    In this concept, the shorts are held in place across the middle of the body to maximize freedom of movement. In the cycling position, the center of the body is mainly in a fixed state, but dynamic racing can also lead to dynamic movement.
    Sharp corners, punchy attacks or grabbing a feedbag while traveling at 40 kph — in these situations the body should be able to move freely while the shorts and seat pad remain firmly in place to avoid chafing. Our Central Torso Architecture anchors the short securely at the thigh, lower back and shoulders to do just that.

    MEN EXPERT Long Distance Seat Insert with GORE® WINDSTOPPER® Cup

    Construction:
    • GORE® WINDSTOPPER® Cup Technology
    • Anatomically designed, the revolutionary 3D curvature to the seat pad matches the body form perfectly, providing the ultimate fit, flex and comfort
    • Design, shape and padding is based on anthropometric data, to protect against all major pressure points and achieve maximum comfort
    • Central channel to improve blood flow and reducing pressure and numbness

    Materials:
    • Multiple density structure makes the pad more comfortable, elastic and breathable:
    • 1st layer made of highly breathable 80kg/m³ density open cell foam with new increased air permeability and breathability
    • 2nd layer made of hybrid cell system inserts of 200kg/m³ density located in the area of the sit bones
    • 3rd layer made of 80kg/m³ density foam in the main seat insert
    • Bacteriostatic Eco surface fabric, 100% recycled polyamide and polyester for sustainable softness and performance
    • The combination of a brushed polyamide and light polyester weave reduces the contact surface area, the channel structure wicks away sweat quickly and expels moisture instantly, leaving your skin cool and dry

    Product Reviews
    Long Distance Bib Shorts+ Mens is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from These are great but... Very comfortable and the material is wonderful on the skin. They are superb in warm weather, the fit is close, the straps are a comfortable material and you barely know you're wearing them. I'm not convinced the pad is exceptional, certainly it is good but at this price point is it better than my C3's? The jury is out. My only other point, and I'm being super critical because of the price, is the windstopper to the front. For me, I don't do Alpine descents at speed and can't see the need for this chill protection when the shorts are primarily for warmer weather. I found it restrictive on the man bits and it tightens the front somewhat more than I was comfortable with. So I've cut it out and it makes the difference for me. Fortunately, the material isn't sheer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from GORE® C7 Long Distance Bib You get what you pay for! very good quality, not sure about the bottom of the shorts, fabric could possible be a bit more flexible, or smooths when getting dressed

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very uncomfortable I bought these shorts thinking that they would be great for the long distance rides we do, but they chafe badly at the seam that holds the pad on so I end up with sores at the top of my legs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorewear C7 Long Distance Bib Shorts+ Really all-round good product, however the leg length is definitely too long for me, I purchased the smallest size & it overlaps my knee (my inside leg is 29" measurement) which is slightly irritating.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent shorts These are excellent shorts. I put them on out of the box and rode the 110 mile Fred Whitton with no problems at all.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice shorts but disappointing Pad I have ridden about 8 50 mile rides in these and in many ways they are great shorts. The fabric is really comfortable and the design means that the shorts rarely move once they are on due to the very effective leg grippers. The only disappointing feature for me was the pad. What is marketed as a long distance pad was just not comfortable on longer rides. Perhaps the pad is designed for long rides on smooth tarmac but it certainly didn't work for me on rough Scottish road

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best yet These are primo shorts. Fantastic pad and chassis plus a great cut. The pad doesn't appear to move at all and, as a result, even after a hot, long ride I'm in no way desperate to get out of them. The low, scooped front is a good fit and includes a decent modesty panel. The partial width leg grippers are really effective. I also like the fabric's smooth finish. Getting the wide straps flat is worth taking a few seconds over. Best shorts I've had yet.
