In name and function.

Wicked Fast isn’t just the name of the design theme that Endurance Conspiracy artist Tony DeBoom bestowed on Giordana's FormaRed Carbon line, it's also an accurate moniker for the line itself. Giordana's fastest gear, the FormaRed Carbon Wicked Fast Men's Bib Short, is as rapid on the bike as it is slick to the eyes.

Upgrading over the previous-gen HC44 fabric, the FormaRed Carbon bib shorts are now made primarily of HC50 (HC standing for high-compression). Lighter, more breathable, and more abrasion-resistant, HC50's compressive properties also support the legs' primary driving muscles, enhancing bloodflow, and as a bonus, boosting aerodynamic slipperiness. Giordana's Zaffiro 2.0 textured Lycra is highly durable and used on the inner legs and on the seat panels for extra abrasion resistance where you need it. The LoPro 0 microfiber bib straps are perhaps the most comfortable and unobtrusive you'll ever feel on your skin, and they're anchored to the shorts by Giordana's Core Contour System, which wraps the waist in anti-static, carbon-reinforced fibers for excellent fit and support while in the riding position.

Inside, Giordana's revolutionary Cirro chamois varies in density by up to 14mm (at its thickest) to provide the support you need on long or vigorous rides, and in an industry first, the next-to-skin layer of the chamois is incorporated with aloe vera extract. Aloe accelerates healing while also cooling and soothing the skin to provide unprecedented comfort, and the infusion of the extract takes place in a special step during the manufacturing process to ensure it won't wash out over time.

Please note that the fit of Giordana's FormaRed Carbon apparel is very slim, so it may be necessary to bump up by one size.

  • Blend of compressive and aerodynamic fabrics
  • Aloe-infused Cirro chamois for healing and cooling
  • Artistic collaboration with Endurance Conspiracy's Tony DeBoom

Is the red on these bibs the same shade of red as in the Giordana Trade FormaRed Carbon Jersey? ie, are these two meant as a pair? thanks

Problem with lettering

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I like these bibs, very comfortable. I have only washed them 3 - 4 times on a gentle cycle and the lettering is already breaking up and fading. I would expect a little better wear.

Giordana's the best

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

Replacing Giordana Lasers that finally got thin enough after three years of constant use my wife threatened to put duct tape above the chamois in back! These are clearly the same kind of high quality product. Giordana appears to have moved its sizing slightly more toward American standards, and they do run a bit longer in the inseam that most, but I prefer that cut. I'm a barrel-chested 230 lbs, and the XL is just right. Very supportive fabric, great looks, comfortable chamois. You won't be disappointed.
