Giordana describes its Trade FormaRed Carbon Men's Bib Shorts as so impeccably fitting that you'll forget you have them on in the saddle. We can't confirm or deny this, but it certainly seems to ring true with what we know about the brand and its history of expert craftsmanship. Built to precisely follow your body movements while you're in a riding position, the Trade FR C employs a contoured, next to skin fit to allow the mix of moisture wicking materials it's constructed with to best do their job. If you're looking for a classic black pair of cycling bib shorts with everyday training or race functionality, the Trade FR C's mix of Shield Endurance, Zaffiro 2. 0 Lycra, and Ametista panels will give you the support and breathability you need throughout easy recovery days and long races alike. As usual, Giordana employs a minimalistic bib strap construction for the Trade FR C, transitioning from a supportive waistband to flexible, lightweight Micro Mesh straps without adding more fabric than necessary. The breathable bibs lie flat and stay in place as you stand for a sprint or duck into a corner, while the generous, 6cm 190 E silicone leg bands gently secure the legs without undue restriction. Giordana finishes the Trade FR C with its Cirro chamois, which is treated with soothing Aloe Vera and constructed with plush cushioning to make high mileage weeks consistently comfortable for your sit muscles, even if your legs muscles are in pain. Finally, reflective accents help keep you visible to motorists and other road users on the days your rides take place on the other side of sunrise or sunset.
