keep your legs warm and dry
Leg warmers and shorts keep your knees from chilling when the temperatures are cool. But, if the multiple layers aren't taking the edge off of biting, wet winter winds, it's time to get your legs into a pair of the Giordana G Shield Bib Tights.
Sewn into a comfortable race fit from contoured panels of the Super Roubaix AZ fabric, the G Shield Bib Tights use a minimal amount of seams to eliminate the places that moisture can penetrate. The lining of the tights have a soft-brushed loft that retains warmth while allowing moisture to escape. Super Roubaix uses a knit with an incredible stretch that forms to your body and accommodates your movements in the saddle. An Acqua Zero treatment has been applied to the material at the nano-level to vastly increase the water-repellency of the tights. To further G Shield's resistance, a silicone heat application has been applied to prevent water from seeping in through the seams.
The bib uppers are made from PowerNet Mesh, to keep the bibs feeling light and airy when you're layered up. PowerNet Mesh also has incredible breathability and moisture-transfer abilities that keep you dry and comfortable in nasty weather.
Typically reserved for Giordana's top-level shorts and bibs, the G Shield Bib Shorts come with a Cirro O.F. insert -- a multilayered chamois that's made to keep you comfortable during a long duration in the saddle. The top-layer is made from a nylon microfiber that's been infused with Aloe Vera during construction. A natural defender against bacteria, Aloe protects and heals the skin while you ride. The mid-layer is a 4mm, waffled memory foam that manages moisture by circulating any dampness to the outside of the pad for evaporation. The bottom, 8mm foam layer is bonded with an ultra-fine protective liner. The Cirro O.F. insert stretches like elastic, and it conforms to your movements on the bike for protection where your shorts interact with the saddle.
Gripper elastic lines the hem of the tights to keep them in place, and reflective piping has been added on the calves to increase your visibility in low-light conditions.
The Giordana G Shield Bib Tights are available in the color Black and in five sizes from Small to XX-Large.
