FR-C Pro Bib 5cm Shorter Short

If you were to take a poll around the office here at Competitive, Giordana's FR-C Pro Bibs are likely to come up in the top three favorites when it comes to bib shorts. That's because we know we can count on their support through the hardest rides, and longest days on the bike. That said, some of us are not blessed with the longest femurs, or just flat out prefer leg cuffs that fall a little on the shorter side. Giordana doesn't forget about those of us with different preferences, or anatomy, and has just the right bibs for us. The FR-C Pro Bib 5cm Shorter Short are the same supremely comfortable bibs as the standard FR-C but with leg cuffs that are, you guessed it, 5 centimeters shorter.

Giordana crafts these bibs from HC50 High Compression Power Lycra which is a supercharged version of Lycra, taking the previous HC-44 to the next level by providing additional compression with its higher thread count. HC-50’s ultra-compact knit is both lightweight and offers the performance benefits of higher compression rates that are usually only found in heavier materials. The leg band's feature new fabrics that easily expand for comfort yet comfortably stay put throughout your ride. The 5cm shorter cuffs are a godsend for those with shorter femurs who don't want leg openings that are just above the knees or folks who prefer their tan lines a little higher up on the leg.

Giordana's FormaRed cut gets a thumbs up from us, and the revised construction refines the fit even more by eliminating creased and bunched fabrics that can occur throughout the pedal stroke. The excellent Cirro OmniForm chamois is multi-density that's maximum thickness is 14mm. The top layer utilizes a Nylon microfiber that incorporates aloe vera permanently infused into the threads during the manufacturing process that creates a cooling sensation and reduces odor. Underneath this layer is 4mm thick memory foam in a waffled texture pattern that adds breathability and moisture management by moving perspiration to the outside of the bibs for quick evaporation.

  • Sun's out skin's out with Giordana's pro-level shorter bibs
  • FormaRed cut maps to your physique while in the saddle
  • Cirro OmniForm chamois adds comfort on long rides
  • Refined fit prevents folding and bunching throughout the pedal stroke
  • HC-50 Lycra supports muscles with compression over long rides
  • Lightweight, lie-flat microfiber bib straps add support without bulk
  • Giordana's cycling clothing crafted in the brand's own Italian factory

These bib shorts are the right length for me-I love them! I'm 5'5" and have always found shorts I buy are proportionally too long in the leg. Sometimes I get them tailored but it compromises the bottom edge structure. These are just right with the right space showing over the knee! Note, the sizing does run a little small as they say. I can wear a small in many brands but the small was too tight and I went with a medium. The shamois is larger than my other shorts, however it is very comfortable riding. I plan on replacing old bibs with these.

I'm 5'8" and 153 pounds, ordered a large. I like the fact that you can order a 5cm shorter bib. Being 5'8" and ordering a large usually puts the length right at the knee. They are a bit tight but once you start riding and sweating they're a perfect fit. Love the chamois, 50 mile ride no issues.

I own a good bit of Giordana kit including bib shorts. I had loved some and some not (Sahara bib shorts). I really like the fit, the compression, the chamois, and the straps on these bib shorts. I love the shorter length too in that I am just slightly long waisted. Would buy another pair and probably will.

First of all, I love these bibs. I can ride 100 miles with no discomfort. The pad is excellent and the fit is spot on. I have tried bibs from all the major brands and these are the only ones that didn’t chafe or cause me to get off the saddle after 30 miles. Now for the bad part...the thread used to stitch the pad to the short falls apart after 200 miles or so. I have purchased three of these bibs and all of them have had the stitching fall apart in short order. Fortunately I just pull out the sewing machine and sew it with high quality thread and it becomes the amazing bib it is supposed to be. I don’t return it because a new one would fall apart as well and I haven’t found a better bib yet. It is frustrating to pay so much for a quality product and have to sew it up while its still brand new.

Sewing tips?

Best Bibs Ever

These bibs have been nothing short of fantastic on every ride that I have taken them on. They are definitely have more compression than a lot of the other bibs I have used, but so far, that has been a plus. One thing that I liked is that the legs stayed in place and did not ride up even on longer rides. The chamois has been very comfortable, ever when riding on the trails. Even when things get warm out, these bibs seemed to breathe fairly well and help keep me cool. I opted for the 5cm shorter option since I am not a tall person whatsoever, and I read that the traditional FR-C Pro Bibs tend to have a longer inseam. I found these to be perfect for me.

The FR-C Pro Bibs from Giordana are amazing! You can expect the high quality stitching and materials used for these bibs. The chamois is comfortable. Also the inseam is short but not too short. The size chart included was spot on. I'm a 30in waist and purchased a medium.
