Great shorts EXCEPT for the front seam
These were super comfortable except for one VERY fatal flaw. For some reason, even compared to other Giordana shorts that I own, the chamois is very short in the front. Plus, the seam on the front middle of the short is more pronounced and stiff than in other shorts I own. This adds up to some serious discomfort for your sensitive parts. I had to return them after one test ride to detect the problem and a second one to confirm that there was no way to avoid it...
