Giordana EC Scatto Trade Bush League Bib Short

For the pure love of riding.

Considered inferior to major league teams, the Bush Leagues are considered a pejorative to the professional sports players commanding attention from live television, media outlets, and magazine covers. What's not focused on is these minor league players are often doing things on their own terms, simply playing for the game itself and the feeling it brings. Inspired by this pure love of sport, the EC Scatto Trade Bush League Bib Short caters to everyday riders pushing themselves merely for the passion of cycling—without the need for champagne pours on the podium, hyped media status, and fame on the road.

Giordana fabricated this bib short with collaborative cues from the laid-back, soulful riders at Endurance Conspiracy. The Moovix Power Lycra is trickled-down from Giordana's FR-C Collection, meaning you'll reap the benefits of firm compression along hard-working muscle groups. Not only does this hollow-structured fabric provide optimal levels of support, but it's also lightweight and moisture-wicking for temperature regulation when you're pushing yourself at a blistering cadence. It's finished with an anti-odor treatment that keeps funkiness at bay when you're sweating.

Along the outer thighs is a Shield Endurance compressive fabric that won't fade, even after multiple washings. This is handy for keeping this pair of bibs looking pristine, seeing they'll be in constant rotation throughout the cycling season. Another key benefit is the UPF 50+ sun protection rating, which protects your legs from searing UV rays in the midst of summer's hottest months. To finish the leg bottoms, Giordana employs a six-centimeter band with sewn-in silicone threads for a secure fit.

Only found in the finest bibs in Giordana's line, the Cirro OmniForm chamois is a multi-density affair that's permanently infused with Aloe to eliminate chafing from slowing you down. This soothing Aloe infusion cuts down on the amount of chamois cream you'll find yourself applying throughout the season, especially when you're embarking on multi-hour rides. Memory foam of varying thickness helps to absorb fatiguing vibration transmitted through the saddle.

Great Value

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

Fits true to size. Took a few stars off due to the Endurance Conspiracy heat transfer logo started falling off during the first ride in these bib shorts. I didn't care for the emblem anyway, so I was somewhat glad it was easy to peel off. However, I think decals should at least survive the first wash.
