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 constructs its Chrono Shorts to appeal to both sides of the fence. With a wide, flat waistband reminiscent of your favorite pair of yoga pants, and a womens specific Chrono Chamois providing good support, comfort, and minimal volume to allow for freedom of movement, youll rack up the miles in comfort. Giro constructs the shorts out of a stretchy nylon/spandex-blend fabric giving the shorts a body-hugging, contoured fit that will hold its shape without shifting or stretching. The wide comfort waistband shape supports while the moisture-wicking fabric panels draw perspiration away from your skin as you ride. Final details include UPF 50+ protection from the sun, silicone leg grippers keeping the openings in place throughout the ride, and reflective logos for increased visibility in low light.
