For when bibs don't cut it.

Bibs have their place on most of our rides, but they don't always work for everyone. Straps can add irritation and by adding any more layers on a hot day, it just increases the heat. Thankfully, Gore Wear offers the same high-quality materials and tech of its bibs in shorts with the C5 Short Tights+ for men. These shorts provide lightweight comfort with its highly breathable fabric and support from a snug fit that hugs your hard-working muscles preventing fatigue so you can focus on tackling the ride.

The seams on the panels are optimized to reduce friction zones, all but eliminating chafing and irritation that is often nagging with other shorts. The hem is designed to be seamless as well allowing it to lie flat against your legs keeping them firmly in place. A comfortable waistband is essential on shorts without bibs to keep them in place without cutting you into two. In this application, Gore places elastic in the back to secure the band but skips the elastic on the front for maximum comfort. A pair of shorts is only as good as their chamois and Gore adds the Advanced Road insert to keep your sensitive bits happy during the duration of the ride. It offers just the right amount of cushioning and minimizes pressure with multiple densities so you're protected without unnecessary bulk.

  • Shorts built for racking up the miles
  • Highly breathable fabric transfers moisture
  • Snug fit supports your muscles through the ride
  • Advanced Road chamois cushions your sit bones
  • Optimized seam placement reduces chafing and friction
  • Flat-hem keeps leg openings comfortably in place
