Constructed on a curve to clone your bodys natural riding position throughout a range of motion. The shape of the panels eliminate puckers and creases by ergonomically following the bodys contours. FR C shorts utilize HC 44 high compression fabric for precise fit, incredible performance and maximum comfort. A second fabric, Ametista, appears pinstriped due to the threads of carbon woven into it. The carbon element controls stretch and reinforces the strength of the material, allowing it to be lighter, yet stronger. Carbon has the added benefit of reducing electrical interference from cell phone towers and power lines that can negatively affect performance. Ametista is utilized on the Giordana Core Contour System around the waist where it wraps internal organs with protective carbon, delaying the onset of fatigue. An internal logo branded elastic keeps the waist snug. At the cuffs, Ametista is backed with Antigua to form the Aerofix Gripper System , which holds the shorts perfectly in place with a seamless feel. Four needle flat stitched seams help to control stretch as well as isolate muscle groups. Reflective elements add visibility for safety. The FR C Shorts feature Giordanas newest top of the line Cirro OmniForm insert that comfortably contours to the body in motion and returns to its original shape after every ride.
