Giordana Silverline Shorts - 2011 BCS
There are many reasons to prefer shorts to bib shorts, one of the most prominent has to do with the natural functions of your body. It's certainly true for girls and for guys too, shorts sometimes make life easier, and not everyone wants to hassle with bib suspenders. If you want a solid pair of shorts that sacrifice none of the quality in fabric and chamois, Giordana offers the Silverline Shorts.
Silverline is Giordana's gift to people who want amazing value for their money. The entire line looks and feels twice as expensive as it is. These shorts are made from the Power Lycra called Zaffiro. Its highly compact weave offers a balanced multi-directional elasticity which aids in your power output and offers amazing durability. It stretches and conforms easily to your every movement, and Giordana's Core Contour System has been trickled down from their high-end bib shorts to ensure a proper fit. A micromesh fabric wraps the waist with ergonomically designed inserts to eliminate bunching in the riding position. The mesh helps provide ample ventilation and wicks moisture away from your skin in this potential hot zone where your jersey and shorts will overlap.
The ergonomically cut leg panels are bounded at the bottom with soft doubled lycra cuffs rather than having the invariably irritating leg-grippers. Giordana includes reflective strips on the backs of the legs to aid in keeping you safer in low level lighting situations.
Giordana's Nimbo OmniForm insert has been designed to contour to your body in motion, though it returns to its original shape after every ride. The thermoformed OmniForm chamois is made by Giordana in their Italian factories. Their low heat process creates a seamless, multidimensional pad to ensure comfort. The Giordana Silverline Shorts come in Black/black and Black/white and are available in Small through XX-Large.
- High-density weave of Zaffiro fabric offers not only comfort and support but extreme durability
- Nimbo OmniForm layers memory foam for cushioning and perforated open-cell foam for ventilation
- Soft Lycra bands at the cuffs eliminate the need for traditional grippers, hugging your legs through the full range of motion

Get the right size - fits great

Fit falls between Pearl Izumi (their products tend to run larger and more relaxed) and Castelli (small and compressive fit). My 5' 10" 168lb frame falls between M and L on the Giordana sizing chart. Returned the L and got a M instead, I like the fit now. Great chamois and quality construction.

Thanks for your question. The inseam on the Giordana Silverline Short - Men's is 9 inches. I hope this answer helps.
