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.
The Pinnacle in Performance and Comfort
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.
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.
The regular length FR-C Pro short inseam of 10.5 inches* (26.5 cm) decreases by 5cm to create a shorter inseam version of 8.5 inches or 21.5 cm. This length is perfect for cyclists who want to work on their tan lines or for those who find the regular inseam length just a little too long. *Inseam length for size Medium.
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. Made in Italy.
