Cold muscles don't perform as well as warm muscles, which is the number one reason why the Gore Bike Wear Contest Thermo Bib Tight will make you faster—and if not, at least you'll have warm legs. The Contest Thermo Bib Tight features a ergonomic, six-panel cut for a next-to-skin fit. Cold-susceptible areas like the knees and kidney region get an additional layer of thermo-stretch fabric for added warmth—so you can't blame the cold for ending your training ride early.

  • Gore chamois keeps things kosher during long days in the saddle
  • Reflective logos keep motorists aware of your presence in low-light
  • Gripper elastic on bottom hem prevents unwanted movement
  • Mesh regions provide better heat exchange across the body

Here's what others have to say...

My husband is 5'11", weighs 150' has a 33"...

My husband is 5'11", weighs 150' has a 33" waist and and a 32" inseam. He wears medium bike shorts. What size should I get him?

Would help to know what brand of shorts he wears with a size medium... with that info I could provide a pretty specific recommendation.

Without that info: If he has very skinny legs, I'd go with the medium. If not -- or if you really want to make sure he has the length for cold conditions, go with the large; might be slightly less snug, but my guess is that it won't matter much in the conditions he'll wear these in.

I'm 5'11'' with a 34" waist and 32" inseam....

I'm 5'11'' with a 34" waist and 32" inseam. I just returned a pair of Castelli bib tights size Large because they were too tight through the leg (I have big legs). Any idea of whether I would be a L or XL in Gore?

I believe the 'XL' will suit you better; first and foremost, you don't want to restrict movement, making your rides counterproductive, and uncomfortable. Compression is great, in good measure, but it sounds like you just need the next size up; as compression shouldn't hinder movement, just support muscles and help blood flow to/from them.

The waist size difference is somewhat negligible, with a variant of 1.75...and taking into consideration that many of Gore's products run a bit on the smaller sider of the spectrum (not all, but some of it does). Muscles will expand with exertion, etc., as well.

And, you don't want that much ankle exposed to the elements, which is what will happen with the smaller of the two sizes; though you could wear 'booties' when it gets very cold, giving you some added protection.

Overall, it sounds like the 'XL' will probably be your best fit in Gore...and in ALL the Italian lines...size up!

Hope this still helps some!

I'm 5'9", waist 34 inseam 30, what size...

I'm 5'9", waist 34 inseam 30, what size would fit better, the L or the XL? I don't care for "too tight", prefer it to be a little lose so it's not uncomfortable, the sizing chart says it runs "fit", I'm leaning towards XL but are wondering on the inseam. What do you guys think?

The inseam is definitely going to be the issue here. The Large has an inseam around 32.5. These will be long for you. If you don't mind folding the bottom part of the legs in to accommodate the inseam length, then you should be good. I definitely would stick with the Large over the XL. You will be swimming in the XL.
