By the seat.

Since he's arguably Kazakhstan's greatest cyclist and was both a star rider and the current GM of Team Astana, it's hard not to associate the team with Vinokourov. The man's riding style was dynamic, to say the least, and his spontaneous attacks and willingness to risk losing a race by not holding anything back won him a lot of fans. Vino rode by the seat of his pants, and the ups and downs of his career mean that the Giordana Men's FR-C Pro Astana Team Bib Shorts are some big pants to fill.

For 2017, Astana has tweaked their kit to incorporate elements of the contemporary and the traditional. With the exception of the left leg cuff, Astana's 2017 bib shorts are pure tradition: a solid black field with sponsor branding distributed tastefully throughout. Tasteful is the key word here, as the shorts allot the proper amount of negative space to offset the sponsor call-outs. This lets the black shorts serve as a stark contrast to the brightly colored Astana jersey—a design choice that we've been missing ever since it virtually disappeared in the late '90s.

Despite the obvious branding differences, the Astana Team Bibs are basically the same as the FormaRed Carbon (FR-C) model with one key difference: they're made to be printed on. Printing on for high-end materials is typically hard to impossible, but Giordana earned a reputation as one of the best cycling clothing companies in the world because it views "hard to impossible" as a challenge, not a limitation. Like Vino himself in countless suicide attacks, Giordana rose to the challenge, and the FR-C Pro bibs were born.

    First of all the pair I originally ordered had a defect after about 5 rides, literally had a new pair in the mail working 5 minutes. Absolutely phenomenal customer service. As far as sizing goes, regardless if you’ve been buying bibs for the past 50 years, every company and every model fits differently. Also if your expecting anything but a race fit you’re going to be disappointed, so they’ll be tight. I highly recommend you take 5 minutes to look at the sizing and measure yourself out, if you do that I guarantee you these will be one of the most comfortable pairs of bibs you’ll own. Every single bit of these are high quality and pure comfort, the shoulder straps are nice as displace themselves quite well. Another thing I noticed when comparing these to my older pearls, they are insanely light weight. Overall a great experience on a great pair of bibs.

    Size runs small. Fabric is very comfortable, large chamois helps if you move around on the saddle. My only issue with them has been that they are pretty tight in the crotch and tend to pin the sensitive parts against the saddle. I have been on a couple rides where I had to stop, adjust and ride bow legged for a while.

    very small - except re-stocking charge

    This bib runs very small. I have ordered over 30 years of bibs without such trouble. I re-ordered due to price and the chamois, which looks great, as XL but the shoulder straps and legs are still tight. So I'll settle for it due to price and need of a good chamois. I ride 50 to 75 miles a day training for tours of 100 per day and my others bibs are worn out. I will think twice about ordering from competitive due to the re-stocking cost. Since there is so little info on a difficult to fit item it's a sin to charge in my opinion. Especially since I have used them in the past and referred others as well.

    Excellent Bib Shorts

    I love the Giordana chamois. I have mostly bought the shorts but these Bibs breath very nicely. I have worn them on 2 100 mile rides this summer and they are perfect. I like the yellow thigh cuff as it adds to bike safety. The shorts seem to disappear once you start riding. I own 2 pairs at this excellent price.

    Love these bib shorts.

    Very comfortable to wear. Fabric feels great and the shoulder straps don't irritate or pull during the ride. Almost disappears as you ride - no discomfort. Insert is not bulky but effective. Wish I didn't have to wear the team version but it is so much cheaper, I could not pass up this bargain.

    Just as described in the product review, the FR-C Pro is a huge advancement of the FR line, which I have used for several years now. I always felt the perfect bib would be a combination of both the upper body of my FR and the lower body of my Assos Equipe.

    Not any longer!

    Compared to the Assos, the straps are far more comfortable and where the upper body meets the lower, I feel more secure with their firmness. Although the grippers feel more secure with the Assos, that's only because there is no cuff of cloth, which is prevalent on most bibs today.

    The FR-C Pro shorts disappear, regardless of time on the bike, which usually averages 3-hours. By contrast to the regular Forma Red, the lycra is softer and the cuffs don't bind. In a word, they are the most comfortable shorts I have worn. And as an inducement to buy the FR-C Pro, it is priced a shade lower.
