Giordana FormaRed Carbon Bib Shorts with Cirro Insert - Women's

You'll find no excuses in the Giordana FormaRed Carbon Bib Short. It just doesn't get much better than this. The FormaRed Carbons are at the very top of Giordana's impressive line of cycling clothing -- that should give you a pretty good idea of what kind of quality you're dealing with. If that isn't enough, however ... The star of the shorts' construction is the HC-50 compressive Lycra on front and side panels, which replaces the previous model's HC-44 with an increased thread count -- from 44 to 50 threads per centimeter squared -- and a corresponding uptick in compression. With the added compression, these shorts are approaching medical grade, so they're more than capable of keeping your blood flowing and reducing the fatigue caused by road vibrations and muscle oscillation over long days in the saddle.The inner thighs and seat panel feature Zaffiro 2. 0.

The carbon implants impart antimicrobial properties. The shorts' body is kept in place by the usual bibs up top and the decidedly unusual 190 E leg bands down low. The 190 E bands spread a soft, non-restrictive, and gently compressive grip across the 7. 5 centimeter-wide cuffs. A silicone application is used throughout these bands to help keep everything in place. The LoPro 0 used in the front and shoulders of the bibs is the distant, less-restrictive cousin to the LoPro 30 and 45 materials that Giordana uses in the cuffs and armbands of other items. The s..

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
