The absolute BEST liner short money can buy!
I stopped using liner shorts that dedicated MTB companies include or sell years ago because they are all just terrible, poor materials, inadequate chamois, etc. I just buy nice quality road bib shorts and wear them under my baggies. One of my Go-To shorts has been the Giordana Silverline bib. Excellent durable materials, great compression, and a fantastic chamois, especially when considering the price point. So when I saw Giordana making a true liner short I was intrigued, when I saw it would have pockets, very similar to another pair of shorts I have owned but had a so-so chamois, I was all in. I bought a pair and I am here to say I will be buying another pair before next spring. They are phenomenal. The materials are light and very breathable, yet compressive, the Chamois is next level amazing and the pockets are perfect. I wear an XL in Pearl PRO, Assos, Specialized, 7Mesh, even Castelli (which runs a little smaller than the rest), and these FR-C Pro Bib liner shorts. These liners quickly became my favorite shorts this last Summer/Fall Compression is perfect, I love that they come up higher on my waist instead of ending at an awkward height (for fat guys like myself) and the Chamois is excellent for all-day rides. I am thrilled, for sure going to order another pair, maybe 2 more if I can get approval from my accountant (wife ;-)
Pro MTB Bib
I love these new bibs. Was just telling another rider about them today. Will be ordering another bib soon
Roadie comfort goes off-road
I have been a loyal user of Giordana products for years but was always a bit bummed having to use my purpose-built road bibs as liners. The comfort and performance were second to none, but what if there was a pair of bibs that did both? The FR-C Liner combines the comfort of Giordana road bibs with the added function of storage and more durable material for offroad use. The bibs can be worn on their own, but I found the material "creaked" against the surface of the saddle - best to wear them with a pair of shorts.
