Super fit, great style
These are my go-to over shorts, even when I'm racing. They are the perfect amount of tightness, and are uber light, and feel very fast and never snag on my saddle. There is no excess junk on them like big pockets or side straps. The front velcro attachment works great and keeps them in place for hours and hours and hours of hard riding. There are no bulky seams, which I love. I definitely recommend these if your MTB style is a little bit laid back but you still like to rip on the XC trails.
Perfect Over Short
These are my go-to MTB over shorts! They are more on the slim fitting side, making them perfect for XC riding. The Velcro closure and back grippy waist band keep them in place. I have found them to be super durable, even though that was not a test I wanted to conduct. Riding in the woods in the southern humidity is always a challenge. I use light weight bib shorts or MTB liners underneath and these over shorts have proven to be very breathable. I highly recommend these, especially if you MTB in hot weather.
Stoked on the new MTB shorts
The FR-C over short is an amazing addition to the Giordana MTB line. They fit well and are hardly noticeable when riding. The velcro waist adjustment works great to keep the shorts in place. I highly recommend these to anyone who likes a more slim fitting short.
