Serious goals call for serious bibs.

You have serious goals for this cycling season, but you won't be meeting them with saddle sores and hot spots from your 5-year-old bib shorts. Not to worry though, the Gore Wear C5 Bib Shorts+ are ready to wrap around your legs with a warm hug, and a supportive chamois that lets you relax on the saddle with minimal chaffing and pain, all without breaking your summer upgrade budget. The C5 Bib Shorts+ are designed for the dedicated cyclist, cut to hold your muscles and reduce fatigue while shielding you from wind, and loading you with women's specific features to keep you comfortable all day.

It's no secret that we have different anatomy than men, and with the differences come some issues with the logistics of bibs. Gore tackles some of these differences with features like a dual-zippered back that allows for easy nature breaks, and a center clip in the front of the bib that minimizes friction and secures at your breastbone. When you're halfway up a canyon and giving it your all, the mesh bibs pull away sweat, working to keep you cool and comfortable while you're hammering away. Underneath it all Gore places an Advanced Women's inset with Gore Windstopper Cup technology. This chamois uses multi-density foam contoured to support us where we need it most, and relieve pressure where we want a little bit less bulk. Its smooth upper does its best to fight chaffing, so you can stay comfortable for the long miles in the saddle.

I'm tall... 5'11 and a female. I want to try bibs but am leary to spend a lot without knowing the fit. Any recommendations? I ride 30 to 100 miles on a roadbike.
