Depending on who you ask, bib free shorts are either far more, or far less, comfortable than their bibbed cousins. Wherever you may stand on the issue, Giro constructed its women's Chrono Pro Shorts to appeal to both sides of the fence. With a wide, flat waistband reminiscent of a favorite pair of yoga pants along with a knit lumbar panel to lend support to lower back muscles, the Chrono Pro was designed with ride enhancing comfort in mind. Giro constructs the shorts primarily out of an Italian Lycra that gives the shorts a body hugging, contoured fit that will hold its shape without shifting or stretching. The knit lumbar support panel provides a more compressive fit to help prevent aching lower back muscles, while the fabric panels work together to draw moisture away from your skin as you ride. Giro's Chrono Expert Chamois lines the shorts, providing a mix of support and relief as you pedal with a breathable, multi density arrangement of foam shaped specifically for women.
