A one-way ticket to warmth.
Have you ever been on a coolish ride where you wore only your normal bibs and wished you had had slightly more protection on your rump? Or maybe in the past you have started out on an early morning ride with knee warmers since you knew to expect an improvement in the weather by afternoon, but felt your backside was too cold for more than half the ride? The Giordana Silverline Roubaix Bib Shorts have been developed to offer riders the ultimate in clothing choice for temperature control. They're ideal for transitional seasons when you may want extra protection for your core, but you don't necessarily need a full-leg tight, and you want the freedom from wearing knickers.
The Roubaix Bib Shorts are constructed using Roubaix Vintage. Like all fabrics in the Roubaix family, this one is a winter-weight microfiber material that's made with a special interlocking knit and fits like spandex, but is thicker. Roubaix Vintage efficiently moves moisture and is breathable. It's brushed on the inside surface to create air pockets that insulate by retaining your body heat. It's an ideal material for winter clothing where warmth and freedom of movement are critical. The paneling for the bib shorts is patterned from the popular Silverline summer bib shorts and features a precise and snug fit without wrinkling or bunching.
The bib upper has a large micromesh insert in back for maximum ventilation. Grippers with a five centimeter wide soft silicone elastic texture keep the bottom of the shorts comfortably in place. The chamois is made from MC-3 OmniForm using Giordana's exclusive construction process. This way irritating seams are eliminated and the insert can move comfortably with you. Consequently you won't be suffering any chafing or irritation from bunching.
The Giordana Silverline Roubaix Bib Shorts are available in Black and come in sizes Small through XX-Large.

This is the first pair of insulated bibs I've purchased and I am very pleased. Tried these bad boys on a century ride in 45 degree F weather for 6 hours in pouring rain. It almost felt like my legs were dry. Very warm and can be paired with knee or leg warmers to extend their use. I am 5'9" 160lbs, the large is a little more relaxed than I'm used to but still fit well. I love Giordana and RealCyclist! Best shorts for the money for sure.
