Body Clone garments are the cutting edge of the Giordana cycling apparel and are designed to perfectly contour the body. The new styles are designed on a curve, to follow the anatomical shape of the body in the riding position, allowing more freedom of movement and comfort. Technological innovation and the highest quality fabrics with carbon fibers allow maximum breathability and body temperature regulation making Body Clone garments the perfect choice for summer training.
The FormaRed-Carbon™ Bib Short is constructed on a curve to clone your body’s natural riding position throughout a range of motion. The shape of the panels eliminates puckers and creases by ergonomically following the body’s contours. FR-C Bibs utilize HC-44™ high compression fabric for precise fit, incredible performance and maximum comfort. A second fabric appears pinstriped due to the threads of carbon woven into it. The carbon element controls stretch and reinforces the strength of the material, allowing it to be lighter, yet stronger. Carbon has the added benefit of reducing electrical interference from cell phone towers and power lines that can negatively affect performance. The carbon fabric is utilized around the waist where it wraps internal organs with protective carbon, delaying the onset of fatigue.
In the uppers and at the cuffs the Aerofix Gripper System™ holds the bibs perfectly in place with a seamless feel. Next to the skin the fabric is perforated to create pockets of air and to allow airflow to pass through. The result is a light, breathable grip that keeps the skin cool and dry underneath.
An anatomically shaped rear panel of micromesh is treated to enhance moisture management and cut to conform to the body on the bike.
Four needle flat-stitched seams help to control stretch as well as isolate muscle groups.
Reflective elements add visibility for safety.
The FR-C Bibs feature Giordana’s newest top of the line Cirro OmniForm™ insert. The pad comfortably contours to the body in motion and returns to its original shape after every ride.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous These are the most comfortable shorts I have owned to date. The material feels like a second skin and the pad is very comfortable on rides I have done lasting 3 hours. The bib straps feel tight when standing but almost disappear in the riding position. I ordered a size medium and they fit perfect (32" waist, 170cm). One of the other reviews mentioned hand wash only, I've put these through the washing machine (albeit on a cool wash) and they've been fine. I would (will) definitely buy more of these, especially at CRC sale prices but next time would buy the plain black. I bought the white and black which look great until I got some oil on the white part, still a fantastic pair of shorts though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous These shorts are really well made with top materials, the only problem is the size everything in Giordana line is scaled one size smaller than normal: I normally have the L of every kind of cloth but need an XL with Giordana, so be carefull on choosing a bigger size than usual.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Handwash only! Wish i had known that before i bought it, not too practical for a pair of cycling shorts

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Giordana and research go hand in hand. These Bibshorts are leading edge in many ways. The fabric gives just enough compression, and the seams are flatlock and never irritate. The bib straps are set a little further out than most brands so there is no nipple rash at the end of the day. The Chamois is a great design and fits really well with coverage where needed. A cutout to avoid issues such numbness is welcome. The material against the skin is soft and remains comfortable and dry even on long rides on hot days. The mix of fabrics, the construction, and the cut are all masterful. You will forget you are wearing them!
