Giordana bibs are among the favorites around the office, and the FormaRed Bib Shorts are no exception. For this season, the shorts stick to the same basic formula: compressive fabrics in most places, less compressive fabrics where comfort reigns, but the compressive fabrics have gotten slightly more compressive than previous iterations. This translates to better support of your muscles while you're riding, and ideally, less fatigue at the end of a ride. At the core of the FormaRed Shorts, though, is the Cirro Omniform chamois. It's a great, low profile chamois that still supports well on really lengthy rides. Additionally, it's treated with aloe vera to reduce skin irritation, though we still recommend the use of chamois cream. In addition, the bib straps are laser cut, and lay flat against your body with no hem on either side to cause irritation or bunching under a jersey.
