For athletes with the highest standards in apparel, the C7 Race Bib Short+ delivers unmatched support and performance. Built from the ground up by mating Gore Wear's fabric expertise with the World Tour experience of professional rider Fabian Cancellara, these shorts are designed for no-nonsense performance with a compressive race fit. The main fabric is an abrasion-resistant 4-way stretch material, meaning the short can move with the rider in all situations while keeping the muscles well-supported. The overall design was strongly inspired by Cancellara, who prefers wide, flat-laying bib straps, a low profile junction, and shorts that drape around the thigh with a minimal amount of panels.

For the current line of C7 bib shorts, Cancellara's input was used to develop a revolutionary new design Gore calls "central torso architecture." With traditional bib shorts, the shorts are made first and the chamois is added onto an existing bib short shell. With central torso architecture, the chamois is fully integrated with the bib straps and the garment is constructed around it. Gore claims this design results in a chamois that stays put all the time, no matter how much you move around on the saddle. The idea behind it is that while riding in traditional shorts, your bib straps exert tension on the stretchy garment fabric from multiple directions, which can cause the chamois to shift positions, especially as you move in and out of the saddle. With central torso architecture, the entire garment revolves around the seat insert with no parts moving independently of each other, keeping the chamois in an optimal position at all times.

Being that the C7 Race Bib Short+ is specifically designed with racing in mind, Gore employs their low-profile Expert Race seat insert for support at the precise points where bone meets saddle. The seat pad is attached to the rest of the shorts with minimal stitching, using advanced sewing technology that decreases the risk of irritation or chafing. At the front of the chamois you'll find a Gore Windstopper cup, which is a small pre-formed cup that adds a little extra protection against variable temperatures while preventing unwanted compression to this sensitive anatomical area.
