FR-C Pro 5cm Shorter Short
Whether you're battling toasty temperatures or tan lines, Giordana's FR-C Pro 5cm Shorter Short offers the reduced coverage you want when you're craving a hem that sits a little higher up, letting the breeze hit above your knees while you soar through steep canyons, and power up your hill sprints. They feature the same key benefits you covet from the standard FR-C Pro short, but offer a new fit that's ideal for those of us who want a little less fabric. Light compression, breathability, durability, and exceptional craftsmanship make these an ideal go-to for race days or training alike.
Giordana's FR-C line has made bunching and excessive bulk a thing of the past and you'll quickly appreciate smooth and uninterrupted pedaling throughout the stroke. Fabrics are carefully developed and placed to maximize the comfort of the shorts and the star material is HC-50 which has amazing compressive properties. Its soft to the touch and the higher thread count also helps the fabric breathe better than its older HC-44 material. Zaffiro 2.0, an abrasion resistant material, is utilized on the seat panel and inner legs so these shorts last for many miles and stay looking like new. The 190 E bands spread a soft, non-restrictive, and gently compressive grip across the 7.5-centimeter-wide cuffs keeping the hems in place.
Like all Giordana women's apparel, these shorts are designed using its Women's Contour Fit System. Panels and construction is optimized for the female form in the riding position. The cut is a race fit that facilitates an aerodynamic silhouette and is suited for warm to hot weather rides where comfort in key. The top-of-the-line, women's specific Cirro chamois is your buffer to the saddle and its seamless, single-piece insert has foam padding of varying thicknesses and densities to ensure comfort while minimizing bulk. It's elastic, so it moves and stretches with you as you ride, and then returns to its original shape when you're done. The outer layer of the pad uses a special Nylon microfiber that incorporates a permeant aloe vera treatment for its protective and hygienic properties.
