The womens Shape short was recognized in 2008 by Bicycling magazine for Best Bargain Short, and now we have made the garment even better. We have redesigned the Shape short for 2010 using Giordanas Womens Contour Fit system to fit the female form. In addition to the color options and a solid black, we have now added a solid gray carbon colorway to match the Shape tops with carbon accents. Constructed of soft Supplex material that is adored for its soft cottony feel. The fabric provides just the right amount of stretch and compression. New paneling now offers improved contouring of the female form providing incredible fit throughout a range of motion on the bike. The new slightly taller, but delicate waistband is ultra soft and pliant for maximum security without uncomfortable squeeze. Light elastic at at the cuffs holds the garment in place during activity. Reflective logos front and back are incorporated for better visibility on the bike. These shorts feature the standard womens specific insert from Giordanas advanced Omni Form line. The WMC 3 OF seamless one piece insert offers amazing comfort and protection and will not lose shape or elasticity over time.
