Susan says: "One of my favorite bibs on hot summer days! The fabric feels very light, but I've found it to be remarkably durable, holding up to many washings and lots of time exposed to sunshine and sunscreen. I especially appreciate the non-binding leghole openings that have nearly eliminated the incidence of heat rashes on my thighs. The bibstraps are very well placed, never interfering with my bra straps, but always staying up and in place. Truly, these shorts are a winner!"

  • lightweight, soft and supple HC44 Lycra Power certified compression fabric with wicking capability
  • Ametista™ fabric with carbon fibers on bib straps and leg hem controls the stretch and reinforces the strength
  • according to research done by Giordana, Ametista at the waist wraps the internal organs repelling electrical interference from cell phone towers and power lines that can interfere with performance
  • Ametista is backed by the red, Antigua™ fabric with perforations that create air pockets against the skin and allow air to permeate
  • seam-less bib straps lie flat and smooth towards the outside of the chest comfortably out of the way
  • ventilating mesh back panel on back
  • combination of Ametista and the red, Antiqua fabric forms a unique, light, seamless, and breathable gripper system that keeps the garment in place and the skin cool and dry
  • features Giordana®’s women’s specific top-of-the-line Cirro O.F.™ seamless chamois pad
  • flat stitched contrast, gray seams and reflective elements for visibility

4.3 stars 4.3 for FR Carbon Bib Shorts by Giordana (15 reviews)

5.0 stars 5.0

My Favorite!

(Competitive Cyclist) May 19, 2014

These are phenomenal! I always gravitate towards Castelli products, but I was in desperate need of new bibs and don't care for what Castelli has out this year. I thought I'd give these a try after seeing great reviews everywhere. They are by FAR the most comfortable shorts or bibs I've ever worn. I love the material: it allows for great compression, but still comfortable, power bands keep shorts from riding up without annoying rubber grips, straps stay in place, and the mesh back is very breathable. Most importantly, the chamois is the most comfortable I've ever owned. It's so comfortable my other stuff feels awful by comparison and I only want to wear these now. I would recommend these to any rider, but particularly if you put in a lot of long miles, GET THEM. I'll definitely be ordering a second pair.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
  • Dries Quickly
  • Durable
  • Good Padding
Cons
Uses
  • Long Rides
  • Road Biking
  • Warm Weather
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

As good as I was hoping they'd be...

(Avid Cyclist) April 3, 2014

Based on other reviews I ordered one size up. At 5'5" & 117lbs, I'm most often a small, but in these bibs I ordered a medium and they fit great. I do wish the legs were cut just 1 or 1.5 inches longer. Then I would have rated them 5 stars.

Also pleased that they arrived so quickly.

Pros
  • Comfortable
  • Comfy Straps
  • Good Fit
  • Good Padding
Cons
  • Legs Could Be Longer
Uses
  • Long Rides
  • Road Biking
  • Waist: Feels too small
  • Length: Feels too short

Awesome bib

(Avid Cyclist) September 10, 2012

Really good quality bib. I'm picky with the way the straps fit above and around the shoulders and these are really comfortable. You cannot feel them when you ride and the back is very breathable.

Pros
  • Good Fit
  • Breathable
  • Durable
  • Good Padding

Cons

Saddle sore

(Avid Cyclist) August 21, 2011

I've been wearing Castelli bibs for several years but couldn't get a pair of Castelli Free bibs anymore so I decided to try the Giordana. I could feel the difference as soon as I got on my bike--the pad was seriously inadequate compared to the Castellis and I felt every movement. The next day I was so saddle sore it took me 30 minutes of biking before it got better (on the rare days when I'm saddle sore it lasts about 3 minutes before I forget about it).

I'll only wear these bibs when I have a short ride and don't need to ride the next day because the padding was so thin.

Pros
  • Comfortable
  • Good Fit
  • Breathable
Cons
  • Not Enough Padding
Uses
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels too short

Great pair of bib shorts

(Avid Cyclist) July 13, 2011

I typically wear bib shorts, so I have purchased numerous pairs. I love these bibs and the only real complaint that I have is that they are shorter than what I am used to. I like a longer short for compression and support and I don't feel that these bibs provide that. They are super comfortable though, so I have decided to keep them to wear on shorter rides (less than 35 miles) where fatigue is not an issue and on hot days because they are so cool.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Good Padding
  • Dries Quickly
  • Comfortable
Cons
Uses
  • Mountain Biking
  • Long Rides
  • Warm Weather
  • Road Biking
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels too short

Great bibs!

(Avid Cyclist) June 2, 2011

A woman on a group ride recommended them. She said she loved them but that they ran small. Other reviews stated the same. I ordered one size larger and they fit perfect. These are my first pair of bibs and the most comfortable bike shorts I've ever worn. The pad isn't too bulky and the bottom of the legs don't give me sausage legs or cut into my thighs. I love them.

Pros
  • Good Padding
  • Comfortable
  • Breathable
Cons
  • Runs small
Uses
  • Road Biking
  • Long Rides

I would buy these again

(Avid Cyclist) May 16, 2011

Had chafing problems and was looking for a solution. Have only ridden once in them - after two hours in the saddle, no chafing - very happy.

Pros
  • Dries Quickly
  • Comfortable
  • Good Fit
  • Good Padding
  • Breathable
Cons
Uses
  • Long Rides
  • Road Biking
  • Waist: Feels true to size

These are comfy but short...

(Avid Cyclist) April 24, 2011

These feel light as a feather and comfy...no big diaper feel here...but they are shorter than normal. Great if you are prepared for it, otherwise, I felt they stopped right at the fleshy part of my quads and didn't look/feel right. Hmmm. Two more inches and they would have been my faves!

Pros
  • Comfortable
  • Great pad
Cons
  • Poor Fit
Uses
  • Warm Weather
  • Road Biking
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels too short

Not for tall ladies

(Competitive Cyclist) July 4, 2010

Great fit everywhere but the waist - I had to return these - as they dipped WAY to low in the front - 4 inches below my belly button - some race cut jerseys covered the front of the bibs by less than an inch - raise your arms slightly and your tummy shows. Very sad - as everything else was perfect. I am 5'9" and tried one size larger as I was worried about this very thing. Chamois felt very natural and no lumpy bumpies and the legs. Smooth and sleek....sigh

Pros
  • Comfortable
Cons
Uses
  • Warm Weather
  • Road Biking
  • Long Rides
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels too short

Buy THESE Bibs

(Avid Cyclist) June 14, 2010

My first pair of bibs and I can't stop wearing them. Very comfortable.
Thanks to other reviewers I ordered size Large (normally am a size Medium - 5'6" 130lbs).
Fabric is very luxurious, chamois looks insufficient but I have found that those other chunkier chamois adds unwanted pressure. This chamois is perfect.
Suspenders not too tight.
No chafing anywhere.

Pros
  • Dries Quickly
  • Comfortable
  • Breathable
  • Good Padding
Cons
Uses
  • Warm Weather
  • Road Biking
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

The best especially in hot weather

(Avid Cyclist) May 28, 2010

I'm not sure which is better - the fabric or the cut. These are incredibly comfortable and have all the features you want in a bib - great chamois, straps are the right length, and they look great. My go to bibs in the hot weather.

Pros
  • Comfortable
  • Good Padding
  • Dries Quickly
  • Breathable
  • Good Fit
Cons
Uses
  • Warm Weather
  • Road Biking
  • Long Rides
  • Waist: Feels true to size

AT LAST!!!!! A COMFY SHORT FOR WOMEN

(Avid Cyclist) August 21, 2009

I have searched long and hard for a bike short that stays comfortable for the duration of the long rides - at last I have found it. Just enough padding without too many separate sections that sometimes tend to bind. More isn't always better.

I do think they run a bit small - I usually wear a medium, but had to go to a large mostly because the straps felt too short - otherwise, definitely give them a try.

If your looking for a comfortable short with a flattering fit, this is the short for you.

Pros
  • Great Fit
  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
  • Good Padding
Cons
Uses
  • Road Biking
  • Long Rides
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

(Avid Cyclist) August 11, 2009

beware of these bibs! once you wear them, nothing will ever feel as nice. the body clone seamless technology is amazing and makes for a perfect (and flattering fit). the other shorts are in the drawer.

Pros
  • Great Fit
  • Good Padding
  • Comfortable
Cons
Uses
  • Warm Weather
  • Road Racing
  • Road Biking
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length
