SilverLine Bib Short

Good bibs can make or break a ride, no doubt about it. We refuse to bargain shop on shorts if it means a sacrifice on materials or fit. Every once and a while a pair of bibs come along that exceeds our expectations. Giordana's SilverLine Bib Short are a great example and prove that you can find comfort and value in a pair of bibs that simply perform well and look great.

Giordana constructs the SilverLine out of a textured silky woven fabric which wraps around the leg with two panels. This helps supports the quads and the glutes separately and provides compression to reduce muscle fatigue and wicks moisture away from your skin. The core system stabilizes the short while accommodating the waist and hips for a comfortable fit that stays in place. This results in a fit that's comfortable and unrestrictive, yet perfectly supportive with just the right amount of compression. A plush Cirro chamois is highly breathable and provides plenty of cushioning adding comfort for your day in the saddle.

Soft wide elastic-microfiber bib straps constructed from LoPro 0 are seamless, super comfortable, and disappear under the jersey. At the center of the bib uppers are the 190 Mesh fabric to move moisture keeping you cool and dry. Holding the legs securely in place throughout your perfect spin is the supportive 4.5cm elastic leg cuffs. The short's reflective rear striping at the back of both legs amplify your blinky and car headlights ensuring safety at dawn and dusk.

  • Bib shorts offering comfort without breaking the bank
  • Streamlined fit appropriate for training rides
  • Lightweight synthetic fabrics wick moisture and offer compression
  • Seamless bib straps and mesh bib breathe and support
  • Soft, moisture-wicking chamois gives in-saddle comfort

Silverline satisfies

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

I am a fan of these bib shorts. I have nothing to compare them too because I only buy these ones. The cut of these shorts is what I find to be so comfortable. I actually researched bin shorts and discovered that giordana makes these shorts with a very similar pattern to there top of the line shorts that cost 3-4x the price. The fabric is great for summer rides. The leg has descent compression and the suspenders are comfortable if you are not wearing a shirt underneath. These bib shorts are built from the idea of a brief with attached legs and suspenders. The well cushioned padding adds a final aspect that really allows for support and comfort in a 2-3 hour ride. They do run a tad small, but as an American I run a tad large. I think that the length of the leg is fine. Wash these and only hang them to dry to promote longevity.

Fit is amazing...stitching is the issue

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

This bib fits great and material is perfect. The only issue is the stitching in the front...where the goods are held. The stitch stops half way leaving a fold right in front...looks very odd. Otherwise, bib is great. I'm 6'3" 185lbs, bought XL.

The stitching in front is a deal breaker. The pair I recieved has overlapped material due to the crazy stitching run up the middle of the crotch. Looks like I have a camel toe going on. How does this company stay in business. Their jerseys suck too.

Great bibs and great price!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I like the quality and fit of Giordana bibs and these were no exception. This was my first pair of the Silverline model and I am quite pleased given the sale price that I paid.
I understand that sizing is different for everyone but I do not consider these to run small based on my experience. Fit is on par with other Giordana and the length is perfect IMO.
The material is fairly compressive and snug, as new shorts should be, and the chamois is very comfortable. I have used these on several 2-3hr trail/gravel rides on my CX bike and they are comfortable for the entire time. I would buy another pair of these!

Best bang for your buck

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

Love these bibs, bought my first pair well over a year ago and they are still in the rotation as my daily rider. Superior padding, durability, and comfort. Straps fit close to the body, legs never ride up or move, no bunching of material in the nether regions. 10 out of 10 would recommend. They run a touch small I am 6 foot 190 and wear an XL, but this is expected given the Euro sizing. If you are reading this review just go ahead and buy them.

Awesome kit, Good for the booty!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: xxl

Ok, I have been using the bib tights version of these shorts, same pad and it is definately better than my other kits. My butt is not what it used to be at age 57. I recently lost a little weight and the kits I had other than my bib tights from same company weren't doing the job. So I got these so I now have a set I can where warm or cold out. By the way the Sosa Bib tights are great down to about 35-40 degrees and up to 60. so nice how they breathe but keep that wind from chilling you. Amazing fabrics used in both and stitched together really well. I'm 6'1" 195lb, XXL fits just fine.

Great shorts for great price

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: large

Use them routinely for 2 hr road rides. Fit well and very comfortable.

Great fit - get the job done.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M

These definitely get the job done. They are not my go-to shorts but fit snug where they need to, and provide good enough padding for decent rides. Overall pleased with how they have held up!

Was looking for superior padding

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

The fit was excellent, straps were just about unnoticeable but I couldn't notice superior comfort after a 2 hour ride than my 60 dollar shorts. Maybe I just need to adjust since I'm new to the sport, but athletic. Thanks to Renzo B with spot on advice with size.

I really wanted to love these bibs

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I used to wear nothing but Giordana. But these bibs are very uncomfortable. The straps have sharp edges that cut your skin and the waistline is way too low with a straight cut rather than a scooped shaped. The edges of the waistline are also sharp and rough.

Excellent Everyday Bibs

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Giordana makes a number of excellent bib shorts. The NX-G push the limits of fabric technology, the Lungo excel for long distances, and the FR-C are made for Race Day. But for weekday rides and training, the Silverline Bibs are everything a dedicated rider could want. They are made in Italy in Giordana's own factory. Materials, construction, and fit are excellent. It is nice to have a few kits in rotation, but they do not all need to be $300. These are a great pair for the quiver!

Easy on the bum!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

The Giordana Silver line were extremely comfortable on century ride. Fit perfectly around my thighs... No rubbing in any of the critical area's. Stayed as cool as possible..

Relatively Affordable Comfort

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I found these bibs quite comfortable. The pad is sufficient and supportive while lacking some of the fancy antibacterial features and designs of Giordana's top tier pad. My first ride included 9 miles of in the saddle climbing where I didn't even notice the bib.

I was quite happy with the fit - the straps are long enough for taller riders unlike other brands. at 6'1", 175 lbs I went with size large which is perfect. I normally wear a medium in more "American" fit brands. The inseam is relatively long so keep that in mind if you have shorter legs but it's perfect for taller riders. The short itself has enough compression without being overbearing and the leg gripper was unobtrusive while keeping things in place. One note - these shorts don't come up higher like some in the stomach which makes them easy for nature breaks but not as supportive.


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These bibs are the best bibs I have worn at this price point. I was very impressed with the fit and styling. Especially if you like a longer inseam or are a taller rider. The chamois is extremely comfortable and the best one less than $200. The material is not the most comfortable, but acceptable and gets better as you wash them. One of the best things about these bibs is how durable they are. Durability can be an issue with cycling clothes and these are going to last forever. I have worn them about 4 times and on a couple 4+ hour rides. The straps are a bit wider and feel really nice over the shoulders, they don't cut in like some brands. I really enjoy these bibs and know you will as well.


favorite bibs under $200

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

The Silverine bib shorts have been around a while, and for a good reason. They are awesome! The Cirro chamois pad is a dense material that works great on longer rides. My favorite part of these bibs are the straps. The straps have a lot of stretch to them. They hold everything in place well but they do not tug on my shoulders like other bibs with firmer straps. The straps are also wide and soft, really comfortable bibs overall.

I am 5'11 185 lbs with 44in chest and size XL fits me well. Giordana clothing runs a bit small.

Bib Goodness

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I am pretty stoked on these bibs. I currently own and rotate through bibs priced between $100 and $300. I feel like $150 to $200 is the bang for the buck range. Make no mistake, I LOVE my top of the line shorts. The materials, weight, compression, chamois, and breathability of a super high-end pair of shorts is simply amazing. But there is a lot to be said for the Silverlines that pack similar features into a much less expensive price point. I don't completely agree with a reviewer below, the straps are not my favorite, however, I have used worse at higher price points and these straps really don't bother me but I figured I would mention it.
The Chamois is excellent and while my longest ride in them has only been 4 hours, I can say they will handle a 5 or 6 hour day without issue. I typically wear an XL in Castelli and snagged these in an XL and found the fit to be similar, perhaps a little less snug but the right size for me. Inseam length seems to be on par with most of my shorts as well. I would for sure recommend these to a friend or family member looking for a solid pair of shorts. If you are looking to spend $120 on a pair of shorts, I can say that the extra $40 you would spend on these are well worth it.

Incredible Fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

These are by far some of the best fitting bibs I've ever owned. Once on, they contour nicely and stay in place, meaning they wont bunch up or slide up your legs. The fabric used is extremely breathable and soft on the skin. Would definitely recommend, especially for the price-point.

After several uses and a bike crash, I can confidently say these are some of the best/most durable bibs I've worn. They've held up extremely well through 4-5 wash cycles and have come out unscathed after a road crash, which destroyed my jersey. This may be the best fabric used on a bib short.


  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

If you are looking for a good, do it all bib, look no further. These are the ultimate do it all bib. Race a crit, climb a mountain, journey 120 miles, you will be covered regardless of the ride. Super comfortable fit, great chamois, and nice stretch on the bib straps. The fit is slightly snug, but not as bad as some other Italian brands I have tried. I am 5'10" with a 34 waist, and an XL fits me great. Feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any questions -

Really really hard to beat for the price

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: medium

The Silverline collection performs way in excess of it's price point. $160 shorts should not feel this premium. I've been on 8 or 9 rides in these, and I can't get over how much I like them. The only real criticism I have is the cut. I personally prefer a higher cut, but it doesn't have any bearing on my comfort. The compression is definitely there, but not nearly as much as something from the FRc or NXg lines. I've been very happy with the straps as well, and even though the Cirro chamois isn't my absolute favorite, I'm very happy with it. The bottom line for me, is that I'd be happy if I paid $200 for these bibs. Please get in touch with me at if you have any questions about sizing!

Bib straps ruin good chamois

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I have a love / hate relationship with these shorts. On the plus side the chamois is fantastic and they have the right amount of compression. On the horrible side are the bib straps. If you look closely, the edges are not covered and let me tell you they are very sharp. Every other bib short I own has some short of softer material on the edges of the straps to keep them from chafing. Nearly ripped my nips off on the first ride, then tried with band aids and that was not comfortable or effective.

I ended up cutting off the straps just to avoid throwing these in the trash. Without the straps they are quite good shorts.

I wear an XL in Louis Garneau and Pearl Izumi, these feel true to size.


  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

If you need a bib that will be with you day in and day out, then I suggest you grab a pair of the Silverline bibs. No frills save for a solid chamois that will not bunch up on you, laser-cut straps that lay flat against your skin and a slight compression that will keep your legs fresh.

The inseam runs long (as it should), so don't freak out if the legs feel a little loose standing straight up. Be sure to get into the riding position to ensure a proper fit check. I wear a medium in most brands and these fit well for my lean build. Do yourself a favor and buy a pair now.

After putting these bibs through quite a few more miles and a couple of washes I can safely say these bibs will be the daily rider I need them to be. I continue to be impressed by the quality and comfort of the chamois - no bunching, soreness, or general discomfort. I'll be reaching for these for every ride (unless I decide to do something silly like racing again).
