The great thing about Giordana’s FR-C Pro Tri Shorts is that not only are they great as part of a team uniform, but they work on their own for swimming, running, and riding, and work so well. You can swim, run, and/or ride in them whether training or racing, and you’ll feel great wearing them.
These shorts are adapted from Giordana’s pro-level cycling shorts, with cuts, chamois, fabrics, and features developed specifically for three-sport use. Soft, medium compressive moderately-compressive Ametista fabric is used for both the waistband and the hips. The waist is wide, grippy, and soft. The material at the hips is doubled-over and contoured to provide both the ability to move as well as two front pockets so you can keep gels and bars close yet not in the way, and, during training, keys.
The legs of the Tri Shorts are fabricated out of three textiles: Gravity Interpower for the inner legs, Gravity Pes for the printed panels, and Stay Put for the hems. The Gravity Interpower is a durable, abrasion-resistant Lycra and is available in Midnight Blue and Black. Gravity Pes can be sublimated in any color or design you can imagine. Stay Put hems are 7.5mm wide, lined with silicone, and gently but firmly hold the legs in place. All three are medium-compression, abrasion-resistant Lycra Power and treated with a Durable Water Repellant (DWR) finish to minimize water and sweat absorption and improve resistance to the effects of chlorine. They won’t feel waterlogged even when getting out of the pool or running on a hot, humid day.
The proper thickness of chamois can make all the difference in the world. Giordana offers three pad options, each of differing thickness, to be sewn into the bottoms via Tri-Stitch sewing. This three-step zigzag method makes the chamois short for greater comfort and durability.
- Drawstring at top of shorts.
- Two front-access short pockets for bars and gels.
- Three kinds of compressive DWR-treated Lycra Power, all UPF 50+.
- The main bottom panels are available in either Blue Midnight or Black.
- A reflective stripe is sewn into the rear seam on the left leg for extra safety.
