It was no easy task to take the award winning FR-C Bib Short back to the drawing board, but we did it anyway. Now it's back and better then ever, constructed on a curve to clone your body’s natural riding position thus eliminating puckered and creased fabrics throughout your full range of motion. The selection of fabrics and the fit create a bib short that is so comfortable and stays in place so well that once you put them on you won’t give them a second thought. A new and improved version of the FR-C's power lycra is now incorporated. The brand new HC50™ has the properties and material structure of a compressive power lycra, yet it's soft and supple feel provides a 'barely there' sensation once they are being used, which even surpasses the comfort of the previously utilized HC44™. The FR-C Bibs are possibly the most widely recognized and requested garments Giordana offers, and for 2015 this award winning Giordana Category has received some truly impressive updates . New leg bands which utilize technology from the medical industry and a totally overhauled upper system are just a couple of the new features. While 'must have' premium features remain, like Giordana's Core Contour System paneling and the top of the line Cirro OmniForm™ Chamois. HC50™: Compressive power lycra used on the front and side panels. Zaffiro 2.0™: Textured anti-abrasion and dura- ble lycra used on the inner leg and seat panels. Ametista™: Core Contour System wraps the waist for comfort and carbon threads eliminate electro-static interference. Antigua ™: Piping on bib uppers. 190 E™: A soft non-restrictive leg band with silicone gripper application - 7.5cm tall. 190 Mesh™: Soft supportive mesh used in the center of the bib uppers. LoPro 0™: Soft wide elastic-microfiber bib straps. Reflective accents. Cirro OmniForm™ Chamois.
