The redesigned 2017 Womens's FR-C Short is constructed on a curve to clone your body’s natural riding position, eliminating puckers and creases throughout your full range of motion. The selection of fabrics and the fit create a 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. One of the defining fabrics of this short is the all new HC50™ which has the properties and material structure of a compressive power lycra. It's soft and supple feel provides a 'barely there' sensation , which surpasses the comfort of the previously utilized HC44. All Giordana women's apparel is designed using the Women's Contour Fit System, meaning the paneling and construction is derived from a women’s form in the riding position. Like all FormaRed-Carbon garments the bib short employs a body hugging fit. This facilitates a sleek aerodynamic profile which allows the premium fabrics to do their jobs by remaining in contact with the wearer's skin. FR-C shorts are well suited for warm and hot weather rides where intense efforts are a given. HC50™: Compressive power lycra used on the front and side panels. Zaffiro 2.0™: Textured anti-abrasion and durable lycra used on the inner leg and seat panels.
