Free yourself from bibs.
You won’t want to wear another pair of shorts once you ride in the Giordana Men’s FormaRed Carbon Shorts with Cirro Insert. A non-restrictive alternative to bibs, these shorts have a pleasing fit and all the technical features you expect from a premium cycling short. A compressive Lycra fabric, HC-50, is the hero of the shorts’ construction—gracing the front and side panels with compression that reduces fatigue from road vibrations and muscle oscillation. With other advanced fabrics like Zaffiro 2.0 in the inner thighs and on the seat, you’ll be comfortable and supported on the most brutal rides. Giordana’s Cirro OmniForm chamois tops off your new favorite shorts with a 4mm-thick pad of expanding memory foam, padding for pressure relief and bacteria-fighting properties.

- Q & A
They ruined these awesome shorts
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Last year's version of these shorts were my all-time favorites, I'm nearly co-dependent on them. I was going to stock up on them again this year, but they've made them much shorter on the thigh. It's a mid-thigh short now, almost like a tri-short, not suitable for road racing. If you're used to short-shorts, these are still great, but if you like support through your thigh like a traditional road short, well they've ruined these.
Very good chamois, slippery fit
I don't use bib shorts because my hips and butt are big enough to keep my shorts up without suspenders. The shape of the chamois is perfect but it feels like these were designed as bib shorts and they just got rid of the suspenders.

are my new go - to shorts.
