Making the decision to continue commuting through the winter or to forgo the indoor trainer and log your base miles outside is admirable, but having the right equipment is imperative. You need to be comfortable in the saddle no matter what season it is, but in the winter, you take on the added challenge of staying warm. Giordana's Tempo Vero Trade Bib Tights are made for your coldest winter rides, constructed with insulating materials and Giordana's top of the line chamois to keep you warm. The insulating materials we mentioned refer to Giordana's Super Roubaix fabric, which makes up the body of the tights and serves to retain body heat in cold temperatures. The nylonspandex microfiber features a brushed, lofted interior to provide insulation, and it has a knitted construction reminiscent of spandex, but thicker. As you'd expect from its synthetic make up, SuperRoubaix pulls moisture away from your skin so it can evaporate, preventing a chilly dampness after the first big climb of your ride. To ensure you stay comfortable in the saddle over long training rides, Giordana includes its Cirro O. F. Chamois, which features multiple foam layers with variable densities reaching 14mm thick at their max. The nylon upper is also infused with aloe vera during the manufacturing process. Though it's usually prescribed for sunburns, aloe's cooling tendencies are beneficial to saddle sore afflicted skin, too, and its natural resistance to bacteria is especially helpful for warding off irritation.
