The selection of fabrics and the fit create a short that is so comfortable and stays in place so well that once you put it on you won’t give it a second thought.
A Fit You'll Forget
The brand new HC50™ High Compression Power Lycra has the properties and material structure of a compressive power Lycra, yet its soft and supple feel provides a barely there sensation on the bike and surpasses the comfort of the previously utilized HC44™ thread count Lycra.
Our Most Advanced Short
The waistband of the FR-C Short has been re-engineered to work in two parts. A light rolled elastic at the front waist hem provides a light but secure tension that wraps the front torso. The rear waist hem uses a supple silicone inner gripper that secures the top back of the short. The short also receives the same new HC50 power lycra as the FR-C Bib Short and the new 190 E leg bands which utilize technology that expands for comfort and stability while staying in place perfectly. The FR-C designation ensures this Short as the most advanced bib-less short in the Giordana line.
New Tech Meets Tried and True Comfort
The FR-C Short is possibly the most widely recognized and requested garment Giordana offers and this award-winning Giordana Collection has received some truly impressive updates. New leg bands which utilize technology that expands for comfort and stability while staying in place perfectly and a totally overhauled upper system are just a couple of the new features.
Changing the Game
It was no easy task to take the award winning FR-C Bib Short back to the drawing board, but we did it anyway. Now it's back and better than ever. Constructed on a curve to clone your body’s natural riding position eliminates puckered and creased fabrics throughout your full range of motion. The selection of fabrics and the fit create a bib short that is so comfortable and stays in place so well that once you put them on you won’t give them a second thought.
Must have premium features remain, like Giordana's Core Contour System paneling and the top of the line Cirro OmniForm™ Chamois.
