While previous generations of Giro's cycling shorts were sort of uncertain in their role -- Commuter shorts' Liners under baggies' -- the men's Chrono Expert Shorts represent Giro committing fully to the road scene. Compared to the Chrono Sport, the Chrono Expert features a higher percentage of Lycra, which gives the shorts' bodies more of a compressive, second-skin fit. The firmer fit makes for better muscle support, helping to alleviate the gradual accumulation of fatigue caused by jarring road noise during long days of tempo base miles. The leg bands are also stepped up by a few centimeters, creating less of a constrictive pressure point by diffusing the compression across a broader area. The Expert's leg bands aren't as lightweight as their counterparts on the Chrono Pro model -- which sits atop the Chrono bib shorts line -- but they're also not as heavily branded. The more subdued logo treatment carries over to the lower-contrast of the label printed on the left thigh. We can appreciate race-day flair, but the Expert's subtlety matches perfectly with Giro's less ornate, solid color jerseys for under-the-radar training kit. They're ideal for days when you leave the carbon hoops in their wheel bag or you want a low-profile fit to ride under chamois-less bib tights on chilly days. The Chrono Expert Shorts are finished with the same Custom Chrono Expert Chamois found in their bib-equipped stablemate.

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.
