Celebrating 30 years of comfort.

To celebrate its 30th anniversary, Gore Bike Wear created a special edition line of kit with classic graphics to honor its time in the industry. Built for cyclists of all levels and all riding interests, the Men’s 30th Anniversary Element Print Bib Tight Shorts provide comfort and functionality for any type of cycling adventure.

The hallmark of Element bib shorts is their exceptional comfort. The bib straps are designed to be as unobtrusive as possible while removing the need for a waistband as with the non-bib version. Additionally, strategic seam placement reduces the potential for friction and chafing out on the road. Whether you're using these bib shorts to prepare for your next gran fondo or as padding under your mountain baggies, the Element Bib Tight Shorts will give you the support that you need to keep your muscles from fatiguing too quickly while still providing your legs and torso a chance to ventilate. The bib straps are a full mesh construction that won't grab too tightly or prevent you from airing out, and the leg cuffs feature gripper elastic to hold them comfortably in place.

The insert has been designed without too many bells and whistles, simply providing you with the sort of no-nonsense cushioning protection that will get you through two-hour, Sunday morning recovery rides. It's shaped to provide support where needed and remove bulk where it serves no purpose. The material boasts elasticity as well as breathability to evacuate moisture, which is key to a comfortable ride. A “pelvic tract” has been constructed for this insert to support the sort of pelvic rotation movement that often happens when you hunker down in a cycling position. It includes a central channel to accommodate the male anatomy, which increases bloodflow and reduces potential for numbness.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I got these after clicking on a Giordana sale which turned out only had XS or XXL. Was about to leave and saw these. Figured at the price give them a shot. I may like them as much as the Giordanas. I have a long torso and short legs, so I wear mediums but some brands are long in the leg and short on the straps (Sugoi). Giordana and Biemme had always been the best for me, but these may be even better.

Great set of bibs

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

The padding is excellent. The only thing I would change is the size as I bought them a size too big. The size chart is really accurate so go by it. Other than that they are great and would buy Gore apparel again.
