Giordana NX-G Gradual Compression Bib Shorts - Men's

Ride in Style.

Standing in line at the café, waiting for your ride-saving espresso and power pastry as your legs are about to seize in over-saturated bunchy bibs is about as bad as it gets. And while there’s little to be done about the wait, you can arrive in much better comfort and style with Giordana's NX-G Gradual Compression Bib Shorts. The NX-G bibs fill a void in cycling that has otherwise been overlooked with floppy and unflattering fabrics.

Giordana’s new textile utilizes tech from the undergarment and swim industry, which fells compressive around your legs instead of just lying there, staying in place with minimal stitching and no elastic grippers at the leg bands. When you ride or walk around, the bibs support you in gently compressive comfort instead of leaving you with a rash from a stitch line or bunch.

When standing, the new dual stretch bib straps work correctively, compared to traditional straps, and keep the bibs formed to your body but allow your torso to move unrestricted. And whether you are in for an hour of power at your favorite criterium, or headed out for a 6-hour soul-journey, the Cirro S chamois supports without being unnecessarily bulky.

Best Kit Ever

Great bibs! Very comfortable for long rides. I saw the reviews complaining about the length of the legs but I'm 6'2 and 210lbs. and I love the fit! Will definitely buy more of kits

Thanks for the review Dave! Super helpful to get this feedback out to the community.

I hated to return them!

These bibs were so close to being the best I'd ever tried. Compression was awesome. Workmanship was superb. The problem, however, was that they were too long -- so long that they rubbed behind my knees. That has never happened to me before. While I hated to return them, they were too expensive not to. Sorry.

I'll second that,,,big fan of Giordana bibs, especially with the Cirro chamois, but not a fan of the leg length! Hopefully, Giordana changes this up!

Extremely nice, rather expensive bibs

Conceptually identical to Castelli's bodypaint bibs but with slightly less stretchy and therefore slightly more compressive legs. Sizing seems identical to Castelli., although legs are a bit longer. Like the bodypaint, the single seam on the legs is far nicer than multiple seams. Very comfortable, fairly low volume chamois. Shoulder straps not as soft as they should be, hopefully will soften when washed a few times. Very well made. Feel great, look great. The material of the legs is different from the material of the rest of the shorts, and the pictures make it look like a very noticeable pouch in front. This effect is much less visible in person.

Bottom line is that these are in the upper echelon of the best bib shorts and personal preferences and fit will dictate whether they are among the very best for you.

The real issue is whether these are worth a large premium over other high-end bibs, and that depends on how value-conscious you are since a number of brands I think are 80-90% as good but at 50-60% of the cost.

Ps- yes. They definitely run long but I thought not outrageously so
