Giordana FR-C Pro Bib Tight - PERFECTION
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
The Giordana FR-C Pro Bib Tights are perfect for me, and exactly what I needed for winter rides out here in the San Francisco Bay Area. While the typical daytime winter temps out here don't often get below 40° F, the early mornings can be quite chilly especially when combining a wind chill factor. And summits on some of the higher hills can feel very cold. These bib tights don't have a lot of insulating material, but perform quite well in these temps without becoming too warm as the temps rise throughout the day. I have not ridden out in the rain while wearing these, so I can’t comment on their wet weather riding capabilities.
I prefer bibs and tights that are made with a compression type fabric, and these meet that requirement without being tight and uncomfortable in those ummm, certain places. I also really like the wide shoulder straps that provide good support and are comfortable as well. For me, the most important part of any bib/tights is the chamois, and I find the chamois on these to be comfortable on long rides, without causing any chafing or sore areas, and I don't use any type of chamois cream. These tights have an ankle zipper which makes putting on a bit easier.
I have owned many pairs of bib tights over the years and in my opinion I can honestly say these are the best I have ever used. Now, for the most important question, socks over the tights, OR tights over the socks? Well, for wearing these that have ankle zippers, definitely the tights over the socks to prevent the zipper from chafing the skin.
