I have now cycled in the shorts several times for as long as 85 miles. My rear is extremely happy, don’t notice or think about the shorts which means the quality is excellent.
These came highly recommended by a friend who, like me, is prone to saddle sores. After a break in ride, the chamois and fit is very comfortable and friendly where it counts. Even though fit charts suggest I could wear a Small, I find these Mediums to fit well and the leg closures are snug but not tight on my thighs. Glad Giordana offers these shorter inseam shorts--the regular would definitely have been too long for me!
The pad is very comfortable. They are the nicest shorts I have currently.
I got these shorts in the navy blue and love them. They are a great fit and it's nice to have a short with a slightly shorter inseam for the hot days. I also really love the navy color because all my other shorts were black and it's nice to mix it up a bit! Would highly recommend.
The overall comfort of these bibs are outstanding. The quality of the chamois is unbelievably comfortable and nothing like I’ve ever worn; it’s not to thin nor too bulky and doesn’t wear overtime like all other brands. The compression of these bibs are spot on! The leg cuffs around the thighs don’t ride up, they’re not itchy and they’re super comfortable. The Lycra compression panels around the legs/booty fits like a glove and isn’t too tight and never bunches. They’re also true to fit and don’t create a bulge around you legs or mid section. I’m 5’8 and my favorite part about the FR-C bibs are the mid section panel that gives you a little more support in your abdominal area and the bib straps that hug your shoulders perfectly (not to tight) and stay in place. These are easily my favorite and my go to bibs for all rides wether it’s a long 4-5hr ride or for a short coffee spin. The comfort and quality of these bibs are unbelievable!
