Description

We rarely stray from bib shorts on road rides but the Giordana's FR-C Pro Short are so comfortable and fit so well, we rarely missed the suspender straps. The reduced restriction and lack of additional bib material are welcome on the hottest summer rides. The Cirro OmniForm chamois is shared from the bibs and it offers a comfortable ride for the long miles.

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 expands a soft, a non-restrictive compressive grip across the 7.5-centimeter-wide cuffs. A silicone gripper is used to ensure 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.

Love these shorts!

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I bought 3 pair for MTBing, but the are so supportive (perfect length) and comfortable (great chamois), I find Myself wearing them on the road instead of My Castelli bibs as well. They stay in place even w/o bib straps-and nature breaks are quick 'n' easy :) 6'1" 168lbs-Large are spot on in the waist and thigh.

Too small

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Medium

I ordered the medium, 28 - 32 waist. I have a 31 - 32 waist and the waist on these is loose feeling. I kept them but should have sent them back. Now I'm ordering the small just to see. They are really nice but I don't think they are as tight as they should be.
