On their own or paired with the Ride Overshorts, Giro's New Road Ride Shorts for men are perfect for logging scenic miles in the saddle. They are Giro's first bib less Lycra riding shorts, built with all the support and comfort necessary for rides longer than just spinning to the coffee house. The shorts are made from 100% Italian M. I. T. I. Lycra. These guys are leaders in the Lycra industry chances are that if you've ever pulled on a stretchy piece of material for any activity, then you've been touched by their innovation. The fabric's combination of gentle compression and soft touch make for a supportive ride that helps to eliminate fatigue caused by road vibrations while keeping you comfortable for hours at a time in the saddle. The number of panels used is kept to a minimum to alleviate chafing at the joints, and what little thread Giro does use is applied with a skin friendly flatlock stitching design, so not even the seams are abrasive. More compressive bands at the waist and cuffs keep both the body and the chamois of the shorts in place. The latter is especially important, as CyTech, yet another leader in cycling technology, designed it with a variable topography of high density foam padding to keep pressure where you want it while protecting sensitive areas. The face material is soft, stretchy, and antimicrobial.
