Any brand can throw together a set of pajama-shaped thermal bib tights, but Giordana's FR-C Trade Men's Bib Tights represent the pinnacle of fit and function--and they have for multiple product generations.

With the FR-C Trade Bib Tights, brand namesake Giordana tells us she wanted to keep the focus on creating a classic Roubaix model, so the tights eschew the DWR treatment of the G-Shield and AV lines, making the FR-C Trade Bib Tights a pure expression of thermal cycling kit. The tights' body is a blend of two materials: Super Roubaix and Super Roubaix Carbon. The former is Giordana's go-to thermal material because it combines the thermal insulation of a soft, brushed inner face with stretch and breathability that--while understandably not quite on par with the Lycra used in the FR-C summer bib shorts--go a long way toward informing the legendary fit of the FR-C bib tights. This construction is supplemented with strategically positioned panels of Super Roubaix Carbon wrapping the knees and extended down the calves.
