We're really excited about these shorts. While we prefer baggies for trail rides for additional comfort and extra storage pockets, our roadie side can't shake the support and comfort of bib shorts. This often has us wearing our favorite bibs as liners under baggies which is great, but not ideal. The fit isn't as refined allowing for unwelcome sliding between the baggies and the bibs while riding, and the shorts constantly sag leaving us to tighten down the side straps until it becomes uncomfortably tight. Doubling up shorts also becomes uncomfortably hot on long summer rides. Finally, we don't want to ruin our road bibs if we happen to get caught riding a muddy wet trail. If you think or ride like we do, we feel you'll enjoy the ingenious C7 Pro 2in1 Bib Shorts+ from Gore Wear as much as we do.
These 2in1 short give the look of a baggy short with the support that can only come from bib. Gore reached out to its elite athletes for feedback and these shorts are the result and allow for epic rides where you can't afford to sacrifice on comfort but don't want to rock a tight lycra look either. The intergraded bib/baggy construction optimizes the fit while the high-quality Expert MTB insert provides ample cushioning from trail blows and the splash protection keeps you dry. Abrasion-resistant materials on the inside of the legs and the saddle area add an impressive amount of durability while the side mesh pocket gives you quick access to essentials. The mesh construction on the bibs and inserts on the front and back add ventilation on stifling days with plenty of climbing. Finally, a reflective logo helps with visibility if the light is fleeting as you hit the road back to the trailhead.
