Giro's apparel is designed to function perfectly both on and off the bike. That being said, some of its clothing leans more in one direction than in the other. Such is the case with its Women's Ride Tailored Overshorts. As casual shorts, their sharp detailing works for just about any situation, and on the bike, the tailored fit and stretch fabrics move with you as you ride. In order to create a modern looking, fitted pair of shorts that pull double duty, Giro went with a predominantly nylon fabric. The obvious benefits of nylon are the ability to wick moisture, keep the body cool, and breathe well, and by adding in a flexible spandex to the equation, the shorts move with the legs while in the cycling position. The shorts were strategically cut to stretch and move efficiently and effortlessly, while retaining that sleek, fitted look. This fitted silhouette is more pronounced than that of the Classic version, with the panels closely following the thighs. The lack of extra clutter is a clue that these shorts were built first and foremost for riding, but there are two front pockets and two rear pockets for the essentials. Pair these with Giro's Undershorts for the ultimate riding support, or wear them alone for more casual rides. The Giro Ride Tailored Overshorts Women's are available in even sizes 2 through 12 and in the colors Griffin and Jet Black.
