You've committed got the bike, the pedals, the helmet, and everything else. Now it's time for a pair of shorts worthy of your mileage. The Giordana Silverline products exist as a sort of welcome to high end cycling clothing. Here, you'll find the patterns and detailing typically reserved for more expensive shorts, with a few compromises to keep the price down a tried and true chamois vs cutting edge, for instance, or non compressive fabrics. Regardless of the balancing act that is clothing manufacturing, the Silverline Women's Shorts will keep you comfortable as you build base miles and venture into centuries and more. The primary fabric is silky smooth, and it's a heavier spandex, which means it offers a bit of muscle support along with its moisture wicking capabilities. At the center of any pair of shorts is the chamois, and in this case it's the Nimbo W OF, a more substantially padded chamois, designed for the wider placement of women's sit bones.
