Description

FR-C Pro 5cm Shorter Short

Whether for fit or for tan lines' consistency, the FR-C Pro 5cm Shorter Short offers us a different inseam length with a bit less coverage than the standard short. Just as its name suggests, the legs are 5cm, or just around 2 inches in common parlance, shorter than the standard FR-C short. Otherwise, you'll enjoy the same high-tech materials and craftsmanship as the standard FR-C.

The shorts are constructed from HC-50 compressive Lycra on the front and side panels, which surpasses the HC-44 with an increased thread count from 44 to 50 threads per centimeter squared which helps in the compression department. Benefits include increased blood flow and a reduction in fatigue from road vibrations with increased muscle support. Zaffiro 2.0, a textured anti-abrasion lyrca is utilized on the inner leg and seat panel as it increases resistance from pedaling friction.

With materials up to date, it would be a shame to not modernize the leg cuffs. Well, Giordana does and the 190 E bands expand a soft, a non-restrictive compressive grip across the 7.5-centimeter-wide cuffs. A silicone gripper is used to ensure those higher tan lines, if you choose, are razor sharp.

Ametista Core Contour fabric wraps the waist and core incorporating carbon threads for its antimicrobial properties and reduction of electro-static interference. Light rolled elastic at the front and rear of the waist hem with soft silicone gripper elastic keep these shorts so securely in place, without feeling like you are getting cut in half, that you might never wear bibs again.

The Cirro OmniForm chamois is one of our favorites and it incorporates aloe vera into the face fabric for natural antimicrobial properties with a pleasant cooling feeling. Underneath the top layer is a 4mm-thick pad of waffled-texture expanding memory foam that rushes moisture externally speeding up evaporation and limiting bacteria-prone dampness. The final layer of the chamois is a thick section of hand-sewn open cell padding with recessed channels for pressure relief.

Excellent fit with well-designed chamois

Fit:
True to size

For those with short femurs--this fit is exceptional. In addition, the chamois is the most comfortable I've ever used -- it is dense, but not bulky, so it won't look like you are wearing a diaper like other chamois. This gets my top recommendation!
