When it gets hot, go Lyte.
The all-new FR-C Pro Lyte is a Pro 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 HC50 lycra 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.

FR-C Pro pieces have been developed and perfected over decades. This is the collection tested and proven by the pros. Our WorldTour teams are riding in these pieces now and you can experience the same level of comfort and performance they enjoy. FR-C Pro cut is race-ready, designed to fit close and contour perfectly to the body like a second skin that makes every movement natural and comfortable.
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.
