GIRO EXPANDS NEW ROAD APPAREL LINE FOR FALL 2013

Giro is expanding their range of New Road cycling apparel offerings for Fall 2013, with seasonal updates for tops, bottoms and accessories to address riding in cool and wet conditions. Launched this past spring, Giro New Road has found immediate success, winning approval from riders seeking more versatile riding apparel that delivers performance, comfort and style on and off the bike.

“When we launched Giro New Road, we knew that riders were ready for clothing that gave them all of the performance they need, with the freedom to choose a look that fits their style on and off the bike,” said Nathan Mack, Giro New Road Product Manager. “The response to our Spring introduction has been tremendous, and we are proud to expand the range for Fall 2013 with innovative styles and materials that enhance the ride in cool and wet conditions.”

The Fall 2013 Giro New Road line will also see more coordination with other Giro cycling products including helmets, gloves and shoes to create functional styles for riders from head to toe. From innovative footwear like the Republic™ and Civila™ shoes, which combine a stylish lace-up design with a clip-in pedal compatibility and high-traction walking pads; to the Aspect™ helmet, an elegantly simplified new design with high-performance features tucked “under the hood”; the Fall 2013 offerings from Giro New Road are great for adventurers, gravel road grinders, commuters and anyone who wants new options for performance riding gear that suits their approach to cycling.

New for Fall 2013 items include:

¾ Bib Undershort:
The ¾ Bib Undershort combines the added warmth of an over-the-knee length Lycra legging with the comfort of a bib design, plus the convenience of a quick access fly and Giro’s System Rear Cargo Pockets that allow riders to store riding essentials close to the body. Fabric is a blend of Nylon, Wool and Spandex. Made in USA. MSRP $200.

Neo Rain Jacket:
The Neo Rain Jacket brings innovative Neoshell® fabric from Polartec® to cycling, giving riders a new level of stretch comfort, light weight and breathability that outperforms traditional waterproof fabrics. A slightly offset front zipper and proprietary Stowback™ pocket system at the rear provide incredible function for riders of all types. MSRP is $350.00

Softshell Jacket:
The Softshell Jacket is made for fall/winter riding, utilizing fine technical fabrics that block wind and water while still maintaining breathability. Giro innovation includes our custom Stowback™ pocketing as well as hidden vents on the raglan sleeve and an offset zipper for riding comfort. The result is a unique take on traditional wind- and waterproof designs, giving riders a sophisticated and technical yet stealthy option for riding in cool and wet conditions. MSRP is $250.00

Insulated Vest:
The insulated vest brings our New Road design philosophy to a cold weather-layering piece. By using 25g of Primaloft® it manages warmth supremely and feather-light weight allows it to be truly packable for easy storage. Giro’s proprietary Stowback™ pocketing takes this piece to another level allowing the wearer to easily store gear which is completely hidden from view, yet easily accessible. MSRP $180.

LS Ride Jersey:
A seasonal addition to the Giro line, and a staple of fall/winter riding, the LS Ride Jersey offers the soft, supple feel of Merino blended with just enough polyester to improve performance. With a slightly heavier weight fabric than our short-sleeved version, it packs all of the performance features our Ride Jerseys are known for including Vented Shoulder Seams, Skeletal Reinforced Rear Cargo Pockets and full zip front. Made in USA. MSRP $200.
