As much as we'd like it to, the temperature at 7 a. m. won't suddenly jump to 70 degrees when the calendar turns over to April. The slow thaw from winter to spring is, well, it's slow, and the best way to deal with conditions that are warming but not yet warm while thawing out your frozen winter form is with the Giordana Fusion Lycra Bib Knickers. The Fusion Knickers are made of the same Moxie fabric used in the Fusion Shorts, a 210g blend of nylon and spandex that keeps you comfortable without overheating. It stretches, breathes, and is treated to speed up moisture evaporation which helps to keep you warm in the crisp air of early spring by keeping you dry. The ergonomic panels are curved into the shape of a body, so the knickers are something you slip in to rather than stretch to fit. The micro mesh of the bibs is also treated to usher moisture away from your skin. They're cut low and thin in front and wide in back, which provides freedom of movement and an unrestricted, open feel while keeping the knickers in place without digging into your shoulders. The pad is Giordana's Nimbo OmniForm chamois, a one piece, seamless chamois that stretches to accommodate movement and has variable thicknesses and a central, pressure relieving channel to promote comfort with minimal bulk. The padding underneath the textured polyester micro fiber top is also perforated to evacuate moisture.
