Description

Choose your rise and pedal away.

When Giordana set out to revamp its popular Silverline Women's Shorts, it did so with the intent of creating a versatile piece for women to wear in a variety riding conditions. Additionally, Giordana knows that not everyone prefers to wear bibs, which is why it released the Silverline Shorts as a blend between bibs and traditional shorts. Giordana accomplished this with its redesigned waist panel that now wraps the waist more comfortably and securely than before.

The Silverline shorts were constructed from Giordana's Nair fabric. This lightweight material was chosen as the primary fabric for the shorts due to its smooth feel and texture. In fact, Nair is one of Giordana's softest fabrics, used for several next-to-skin pieces because of its super silky hand. It's composed of a 200g nylon/spandex blend, which means that its stretchable characteristics work to both support your muscles and to move with your body as you ride. Additionally, the fabric was also chosen for its ability to both breathe and wick moisture away from your skin, which, in turn, helps you stay cool and dry.

For the fit of the shorts, Giordana developed a tall overlapping waist panel that tapers down slightly in the front. This soft roll top design allows you to adjust the height of the panel, creating a fully customizable wrap around your waist. Simply fold the band down on the hips for a low-rise feel, or leave it up for more coverage. Regardless, though, the stretch Nair fabric used for the waist and leg panels will gently hold your leg muscles without any sensations of being overly compressive or restrictive.

The insert of the shorts is Giordana's new Nimbo-W OF. As part of the OmniForm family, the Nimbo-W was created in response to consumer's requests for more substantial women's-specific padding in a chamois. The uppermost layer of the Nimbo utilizes a soft polyester microfiber that incorporates a subtle texture to aid in perspiration management. Below this is a layer of expanded memory foam, and then a thick section of perforated open cell padding that's been thermally bonded to the materials above. The bottom layer was cut to protect you at crucial points against the saddle, comfortably contouring to your anatomy. Independent glute panels finish off the chamois, providing maximum flexibility when the body is in motion.

Contrasting white piping lines the shorts' cuffs, where silicone-backed grippers keep everything perfectly in place.

The Giordana Silverline Women's Shorts are available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the colors Black w/Black leg band and Black w/Silver leg band.

Really Nice but So Pricey :(

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times


These shorts have an amazing, silky feel, the chamois provides a comfortable buffer but isn't too bulky, and the silver and white band at the bottom offers a minimal and sleek design element. I am 5' 5" and weigh 120, but I carry more of my weight in my hips/butt/thighs. I tried both the Small and the Medium. The Small was just a tad too tight for me to feel truly comfortable in, but if you are in my height/weight range and your weight is evenly distributed the Small would probably be the way you would want to go. The Mediums have enough extra room on me that I think they'd work for someone who weighs 130/135. It will take me a little while to get used to how high the back is but otherwise the design of the hip band is comfortable and flattering. So if you have the cash, the Giordanas are attractive, comfortable and highly recommended. However, I have never spent this much on an item of cycling clothing in my life, and I've been an avid cyclist for over 30 years. The only way I could justify purchasing is knowing I will take care of them, line dry them and hope they have a looong life span. In the future I'll stick with purchasing my beloved Sugoi Lucky shorts. If you can find them on sale (at Backcountry, of course! Love you guys!), you can buy 2 pairs for the cost of one of the Giordanas, and they have the added benefits of not being a shiny lycra (ie a little more flattering, less slippery on the seat), and having a small pocket on the lower back hip for a key, ID, a few bucks or a small MP3 player.

Stays in place with no binding. The chamois/leg grippers are the same in both the shorts and the knickers. Both are great for the casual and/or curvier figured riders, too, as the fit is more 'forgiving' and relaxed (but not sloppy).

Larger than the Lasers/F.R.C.; overall structure is more relaxed, too.

Inseam length?

My 'XL''s measure 7"; and they can easily be pulled down on the thigh a bit more...nice fit, not overly compressive...very comfy and the chamois is very comfy, too. Great also for 'curvier' figures, but is in no way sloppy. You'll love it!

Hope this helps.

bought M, great fabric!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I am 130lbs, 5'4.5", bought M, and have tried to fit into the tiny bike shorts that have the unforgiving fabric before, and the ones that run really really small and make me have to buy size L, even had some shorts split open while I try to pull them on mid-ride. :( These are NOT like that! Yay! :) These run true to size (I normally wear a 4 or 6 pant), the fabric is light and stretchy and dries quickly, pull on really easily even when sweaty, and they still hold their shape and fit my butt and thighs nicely. The length is perfect - hitting mid thigh (not too short or too long). The padding is adequate as far as I know - my problem is that my bike seat is terrible, so I might not be the best reviewer. The padding has good distribution and isn't too terrible to walk in. The waist band is really comfortable, coming up a bit higher in back. Overall - best shorts I've ever had! Great in hot weather.

You'll love the Silverline jerseys, too, if you like the fit/performance of the Silverline shorts. Great fit, even if not a super-athlete!

You might like Gore's Xenon line-up, too. They have a great fit, and super-performance, right up there with the Giordana Lasers', and almost as good as the FR-C line, but more comfortable, both in overall fit, and comfortable chamois (and this is coming from a gal that still desperately needs to change out the bike saddle, a mens Fuel EX 8...so if it works comfort wise/wicking wise for me, I'm pretty sure it'll work for most all!
Check it out next time, and have a great riding season!

Once more...for the road!

Just got another pair, this time with the black leg-cuff...very sharp. I use these for intermediate rides, and the Lasers' for longer rides, because of the great compression that they offer and superior breathability.
Silverline is perfect for the curvy-figured ladies' out there, who also want & deserve performance & style,too!
RECOMMENDED.

Well Worth the Wait

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Tested this today as the weather in our area was more or less agreeable...just like the knickers: they are so comfortable, not binding at all; very stretchy, leg cuff stayed in place. Chamois very comfortable, and not diaper like, nor quite as obvious as some other brands. Waist band very comfortable, I just have to get used to this style concept, but I will say...no "muffin-top"!!! Perfect for the curvy-bodied woman who also demands quality/performance/style, and not have to compromise! Love it. RECOMMENDED.
UP-DATE: Have since had opportunity to wear several times as the weather is getting warmer...very nice! Ordered another pair, so I have both leg-cuff versions...so very comfortable.
