Description

While we're filled with elation living in the mountains in the summer, once dusk creeps up on us at the end of the workday, the cold cruelty of winter crushes our souls. To maintain a semblance of sanity, we ride through Jack Frost's bitter breath using the Giordana Trade FormaRed Carbon Custom Bib Tights as are our shield.

For the construction of the bib tights, Giordana used its bread-and-butter winter-weight fabric, Super Roubaix. This material uses an interlocking, microfiber knit construction that creates a highly breathable and warming loft. But Giordana didn't only use this material for warmth. In fact, Super Roubaix is highly stretchable, and it also provides a slight compression that dissipates fatigue by supporting the muscle groups of the legs. Additionally, Super Roubaix AZ material has been incorporated into the seat panels in order to keep you protected from wheel-spray. FormaRed uses this thick, stretchy, and breathable material for its water-repellent qualities.

You've probably ridden in winter tights that are plenty warm, yet completely awkward in the fit department. Giordana breaks the mold of ill-fitting winter apparel. The Trade bib tights use a curved, multi-panel design that, when combined with the malleable Super Roubaix fabric, anatomically conforms to your body's contours. This occurs while also providing a complete freedom of movement. And to preserve the fit while you pedal, Giordana has included a silicone gripper at the cuff. You'll also find Camlock zippers at the ankles for both security and adjustability. Ultimately, though, the bib straps are the most prone to abrasion and moisture accumulation. Knowing this, the Trade bib tights use the warming, soft, and breathable AeroFix fabric. For ventilation, the "rear window" over the small of the back has been constructed from the Naxos Mesh material. With these uppers, security doesn't come at the cost of abrasion and sweat.

The bib tights' chamois is one that Giordana touts as being the most advanced in the industry — the Cirro O.F.. We don't deal in absolutes, but we can say that it's the first chamois we've heard of with Aloe Vera particles directly infused into the threads of the microfiber. Aloe is naturally anti-bacterial. Below the skin layer, the Cirro has a 4mm-thick pad of waffled-texture expanding memory foam. The texture aids in ventilation by moving moisture to the perimeter of the chamois where accelerated evaporation can occur. The final layer of the chamois is a thick section of hand-sewn open cell padding with recessed channels for pressure relief. These technologies amount to a chamois that won't get wet and nasty 100 miles into a ride, let alone 20.

The Giordana Trade FormaRed Carbon Custom Bib Tights are available in the color Black/fluo green and in five sizes from Small to XX-Large.

Great Bibs

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Most expensive set of cold-weather bibs I own and by far the best pair. Well worth the investment. I'm a tall rider, 6'6" with a 36" waist/36" inseam and I ordered the 2xl. Fits me well. The straps could be longer or have an adjustment but it works. Very comfortable for fast group rides in the low 60's.
