These shorts were my first encounter with this brand and I must say I am impressed. I wish I had bought these Italian made shorts sooner! The quality is nice, the chamois thickness is great, and I like the textured material a lot!
Second time is a charm
First pair had a pucker along one of the seams. I was sent a second pair and all is good.
These shorts are nice. As always, Giordana quality workmanship and materials are the core of its products. These shorts are nice for indoor and outdoor riding, but personally like them for indoor training sessions on the toro trainer. The material breathes well and the chamois is excellent. There is some compression support, but go with Giordana’s high-performance shorts with HC50 compression lycra material if you are looking for more support. Overall, these shorts are comfortable and a good value in this price range to me.
Fabulous, the Giordana chamois should be the standard for all cycling wear! I am a short stocky cyclist 5' 9" 205lbs. with large muscular glutes and thick thighs. I ordered XL and for me they are perfect.
