Giordana FR-C Pro Bib Short - Women's $224.95
Giordana's FR-C Pro Women's Bib Shorts take comfort and fit to the next level, and would be a welcome addition to any racer's cycling wardrobe. These bib shorts feature the renowned details of the standard FR-C and figuratively disappear when on rides. Pair with an FR-C Pro jersey, and you'll have a smart looking kit that you'll want to wear on every ride.
The FR-C Pro is constructed from 220 gram, 50 thread count Lycra offering optimal compression to promote blood flow and reduce the fatigue caused by road vibrations and muscle oscillation over long hours in the saddle. To increase durability, Giordana uses abrasion resistant fabrics on the seat panel and inner legs decreasing pedaling friction and keep these shorts lasting longer and looking newer.
Ametista Core Contour System wraps the waist for comfort, and 190 E leg bands spread a soft, non-restrictive, and gently compressive grip across the 7.5cm cuffs with an integrated silicone application to help keep everything in place.
Though the fit is impeccably race worthy, the real heart of the FR-C Pro Bib Shorts is Giordana's top-of-the-line, women's specific Cirro S chamois. The seamless, single-piece insert uses foam padding of varying thicknesses and densities, ensuring comfort while cutting bulk. Its elastic construction allows it to be very flexible so it can move and stretch with you throughout the ride and return to its original shape after washings. The top layer of the chamois is a nylon microfiber that's infused with a permanent application of aloe vera, noted for its protective and hygienic properties.

Not as good in 2018
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I agree with the reviews below that the FRC bibs, previously the only bibs or shorts I would wear, are not as good this year. I did not find the length excessive, but the leg band now hits me at a very uncomfortable spot that it never used to. I also think the chamois is not as good as previous models. I am lucky that I still have 3 pairs of the 2017 model, because I don't touch this year's version unless I have nothing else left to wear. I would not buy these again unless they returned to the previous specifications.
Way too long

I love FRC bibs. Pretty much the only bib I wear. I was hoping to get a couple new pairs for this season but these are LONG. Really LONG. I’m 5’8” and they almost come to my knees. Going back. If you like very long bibs I’m sure these will be great. Giordana FRC is the best. But these are not for me. Bummer.
Really Lovely--Really Long
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: medium
These bibs are gorgeous and feel amazing, they were simply too long inseam-wise for my liking.
The straps are laser cut and lay well, the chamois A+.
Inseam length is 9" from the edge of the chamois to the bottom of hem. 12" from center chamois seam to hem. On my 5'6" (29" inseam) self, they came to just above my knee.
Like most Giordana kit, this runs small. The large fit well.
