Women’s Giro New Road encompasses all the underlying principles of New Road whilst remaining intrinsically different to the men’s range. Enviable details in the women’s specific collection have been included by the female design team but the Giro New Road principles of layering options, performance fabrics and fit remain.
A team consisting of female cyclists, designers from multiple backgrounds, fabric and manufacturing experts was put together to create a blueprint for Women’s Giro New Road. Fortunately for Giro the California hills proved a great testing ground and samples were redesigned and tweaked, alterations were made and some products were scrapped. Despite this testing ground of sun, dry roads and warmth Giro New Road features hardy fabrics that carry you through Monday night wet commutes, long winter rides and pothole ridden, leaf strewed road surfaces.
Giro undertook a simple philosophy in the design of the entire range; not only should New Road offer performance features suited to fast, hard riding but also ensure comfort both in how it feels and how it makes you feel on and off the bike. Items like the Ride Legging, and Wind Guard Hoodie offer performance features whilst bearing little resemblance to race inspired cycle clothing. Pairing up a Mobility Short with a Ride Jersey and Women’s Rain jacket achieves a more traditional on the bike look whilst items such as the Boy Undershort and Mobility Trouser add on bike functionality to any outfit.
