Rather than making a few color changes and rereleasing the same version of the SilverLine kit as last year, Giordana saw an opportunity for a serious revamp across its entire line for 2016. The company redesigned most of its kit from the studs up, and the SilverLine Women's Short received one of the most significant upgrades, without a jump up to a less accessible price point. Wear the SilverLine on your next shop ride, solo training day, or your first ride ever to benefit from a versatile piece of kit that moves with you in the saddle.Two panels of stretchy, breathable woven fabric provide a contoured fit that supports your muscles as you pedal, while pulling moisture away from your skin to keep you cool in summer temperatures. You'll find some mid range or entry level shorts start employing a more generous cut as their prices drop, but the SilverLine still features compressive leg panels helping to stabilize your muscles and reduce fatigue, creating a flattering, form fitting silhouette. While you're pedaling, elastic leg bands keep wandering hems from breaking your concentration, with Giordana's Cirro S W chamois acting as a plush, cushioned barrier between you and the saddle with its breathable foam and soothing aloe vera treatment.
