Price wise, Giordana's Women's Trade Vero short falls near the middle of Giordana's line of cycling shorts. At first glance, this can be a bit misleading. The technology that the Trade Vero short utilizes and the meticulous design and quality that are immediately evident in this short land it way beyond the middle of the road as far as cycling clothing is concerned.

Additionally, both materials have been treated in order to accelerate the transfer of moisture away from the skin.As for the fit, Vero shorts benefit from Giordana's innovative contoured cut. The shorts are created on a curve in order to conform to your body in the cycling position. By doing this, abrasion is minimized and fabric bunching and pinching are eliminated.

F. At the skin layer, the Nimbo utilizes a polyester microfiber to minimize skin irritation and abrasion. Below the skin layer, the Nimbo has a variable density insert that has been perforated.
