FR-C Pro Short
Giordana's cycling apparel fit is always on point and the women's FR-C Short is cut to mimic your body when in the riding position. The fit is superb and the shorts mostly go unnoticed on a ride, perhaps the highest compliment we can give to cycling bottoms. Bunching and excessive bulk are a thing of the past and you'll quickly appreciate smooth and uninterrupted pedaling throughout the stroke. Fabrics are carefully developed and placed to maximize the comfort of the shorts and the star material is HC-50 which has amazing compressive properties. Its soft to the touch and the higher thread count also helps the fabric breathe better than its older HC-44 material. Zaffiro 2.0, an abrasion resistant material, is utilized on the seat panel and inner legs so these shorts last for many miles and stay looking like new. The 190 E bands spread a soft, non-restrictive, and gently compressive grip across the 7.5-centimeter-wide cuffs keeping the hems in place.
Like all Giordana women's apparel, these shorts are designed using its Women's Contour Fit System. Panels and construction is optimized for the female form in the riding position. The cut is a race fit that facilitates an aerodynamic silhouette and is suited for warm to hot weather rides where comfort in key. The top-of-the-line, women's specific Cirro chamois is your buffer to the saddle and its seamless, single-piece insert has foam padding of varying thicknesses and densities to ensure comfort while minimizing bulk. It's elastic, so it moves and stretches with you as you ride, and then returns to its original shape when you're done. The outer layer of the pad uses a special Nylon microfiber that incorporates aloe vera for its protective and hygienic properties. This aloe vera treatment is permanent.

- Q & A
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: medium
I usually wear a medium in cycling shorts and ordered that size and they were too small. Called and got great customer service and order a large. They fit well and were comfortable but were long....just above my knees. Total vanity but I already have enough tan lines from cycling didn't want another one that was below the length of most of my shorts. Went with a shorter pair of Assos.
