Giordana's FR-C Pro Bib Short represents the pinnacle in comfort and craftsmanship. The bib short was designed on a curve to clone the body’s natural riding position eliminating puckers and creases throughout your full range of motion. Giordana chose a 220 gram 50 thread count Lycra fabric, with soft and supportive compression, creates a bib short so comfortable that once you put it on you’ll be inspired to put some time on the bike. Equally comfortable features of the FR-C Pro bib short include; the 190 E woven elastic leg cuffs which hold the bibs in place without squeezing or restricting, the anti-abrasion seat panel fabric, Ametista Carbon waist panel, and the stretchable, breathable, and stabilizing bib uppers. The bibs are finished off with two reflective tabs, one on each side of the bib short, for global visibility needs. Last but not least these bibs receive Giordana’s top of the line Cirro S chamois with Aloe Vera infusion and the Copa Mondiale sculpted fit.
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. The 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.
The FR-C Pro Bib Short is the bedrock of Giodana's DNA and similarly to the FR-C Pro Short Sleeve Jersey exemplifies a crown jewel technical cycling apparel.

Giordana FR-C Pro Bib Short (Black) (L)
I've taken these bibs out for several moderate length rides. So far, they seem very comfortable with a good chamois which provides excellent cushioning and doesn't wad up or cause chafing. These do run a bit small (I usually wear a medium, but ordered a large based on reviews from others so they fit well-I'm 6ft 172 lbs) so I'd order at least the next size up from your usual. The only disappointment is with the front portion of the shoulder straps where it looks like the just sewed on a 1.5 in piece of elastic-not stetch mesh like the back. It just seems a little cheap. Regardless, the straps stay in place and haven't caused any chafing issues. All in all a very good set of bibs.
