  • Product Description

      When it gets hot, go Lyte.

      The all-new FR-C Pro Lyte is a “team issue” bib short in paneling, fabric, and style with a total weight of just 153 grams. The extremely lightweight and breathable fabric is 110 grams vs 220 for the non-Lyte FR-C Pro bib fabric. Made to beat the heat on the hottest days, the main fabric of the short has micro “perforations” built into the material, not perforated or made by removing fabric after construction but an engineered open mesh-like structure. Aerodynamic and ergonomic leg paneling wraps the legs maximizing compression and fit.

      The material at the seat area is a woven fabric for durability. A thermo welded finish at the legs stays in place and extends the lightweight fabric down to the hem. Perforated bib straps are lightweight and breathable with high stretchability for comfort in and out of the riding position. The bib upper is a new double mesh construction creating a lightweight and durable finish at the back with very little vertical stretch to keep the short and chamois in place.

      Aerodynamic leg paneling with micro “perforations” built into the material, not perforated or made by removing fabric after construction, wraps the legs maximizing compression and fit. Anti-abrasion seat panel fabric resists wear on long rides, while the lightweight core system and bib straps further enhance breathability. The compressive fit and extremely lightweight fabric combine with a longer leg length that eliminates the need for leg bands.

      The Cirro S features aloe vera infusion at the nano-level, a four-layer construction including a hydrophobic foam layer that repels moisture, and the Copa Mondiale, an extended and recessed area sculpted for the male anatomy located at the front of the chamois.

Excellent shorts for long rides in heat and humidity

These are excellent lightweight bib shorts that are even better then previous pro lyte bib shorts I own. I highly recommend them especially for long rides in the heat and humidity.

Not too shabby

I was hoping the band around the legs wouldn’t be as tight as the other FR-C bibs. They appear different in the pictures, but still tighter than I want. However, the Lyte bibs provide enough room without riding up and perfect for those long hot rides.

Love FR-C, loves this light version -- truly cooler

FR-C are my favorite bibs -- Giordana says they disappear when riding, and they do. These FR-C lytes live up to that standard and are indeed lighter. Truly cooler, still has great compression level, disappear when on. I have only ridden these a few rides of 30ish miles each so cannot attest to the longevity of the lighter bibs with the perforations. Build quality is good, not the usual FR-C as there were some loose ends around the chamois stitching on the outside of the bibs. I will get me another pair or two -- looking for that next sale!
