Italian style has been a guiding force in cycling since before Fausto Coppi ever turned a pedal. Giordana’s new 2012 Sport collection pays tribute to that style with a throwback look reminiscent of their early days. But all that retro style comes with Giordana’s cutting edge fabrics of today. A new dual fiber fabric called VX-2 quickly draws moisture away from your skin with a soft touch and breathability. The fit is slim and performance oriented for today’s aggressive riding. In addition to the stripe across the chest the rest of the jersey’s accents call out the overall retro aesthetic – a lined collar, embroidered patches, flocked logos and a sewn fabric tag. The Sport collection includes jerseys, bibs, gloves, caps and socks to keep you retro from tip to tail while enjoying today’s best fabrics, fit and finish.
Price: Jersey $175, Bibs $195, Gloves $40, Cap $20, Socks, $18 www.gitabike.com
