The Giara Bibshort is Sportful's everyday gravel and adventure bibshort. The regular fit provides just the right balance of movement and support for easy wear and comfort for long, dusty, bumpy rides. The primary fabric features 220g Lycra for all day muscle control and support, along with a fit guided by anatomic panels that favor a reasonable position and bike control for long rides off smooth pavement.
Sportful uses flat lock stitching for chafe free fit, one more sign of serious attention to detail not usually found at this price point. The same can be said for the lie-flat laser cut leg band and reflective stripe on the left leg. The upper carries the overall fit and support via a stretch mesh fabric that breathes well and released heat and moisture while still supplying support to the muscles of the lower torso.
It is crucial to match the seatpad to the intended use and user, and here Sportful opted for their BodyFit Pro, which is a great option for rough roads and long hours on the bike. The infinitely variable thicknesses of the padding deliver support and protection where you need it, while the anatomic shape and seamless construction work together to eliminate chafing and rubbing. The pad breathes well to keep you as dry as possible throughout the day.
