Zaffiro 2.0™ is the next generation of anti-abrasion fabric that reduces friction during the pedal stroke. Engineered to continue to perform over time, Zaffiro 2.0™ is particularly suitable for uses where durability, comfort and performance are required.
190 E™ is a mesh like elastic material; inspired by technology used in the medical industry it allows the skin to breathe while providing full coverage and light compression. This cutting edge material is now used as a leg band on several shorts and bib shorts in the 2015 Giordana line.
Moovix™ has a unique honeycomb knit structure that enables equal stretch in all directions, not just the two or four way stretch of standard spandex materials. Its high stretch and compression rate produces a micro-massaging effect on the skin that can increase blood flow to the muscles and delay fatigue.
Michron™ Ceramica is a duel texture microfiber fabric that accelerates movement of moisture away from the wearers skin to the outside of the fabric where it can evaporate. There is a ceramic treatment that is anti-bacterial and eliminates electro-static interference keeping the rider safe and dry.
Moxie™ is especially good for printing as it holds vibrant color and will not run or fade. Moxie is treated to promote fast wicking and evaporation of moisture. This treatment means that perspiration will not be trapped next to the skin, so riders will feel cooler and drier.
Shield Endurance™ is manufactured using exclusive super dull polyester yarn, elastomer and the latest SUPER 40 generation weaving technology. It is an ideal fabric to utilize for printed sportswear because of its resistance to releasing color. Even after many uses and washes the colors remain vibrant and won’t run.
The Nimbo O.F. pad is a new addition to the 201l Giordana OmniForm family of inserts. It was created in response to consumer feedback that called for more substantial padding at the Performance and Sport levels. The Nimbo is a seamless insert with variable thickness from 4 to 13mm at its thickest point. The uppermost layer of the Nimbo utilizes a polyester microfiber that incorporates a subtle texture. The square-shaped recesses that create the texture aid in ventilation and perspiration management so that the pad does not retain moisture, but moves it to the outside where it can evaporate rapidly. Directly below this layer is a 3mm thick expanded memory foam. Underneath the two upper layers is a 10mm thick section of open cell padding that is thermal bonded to the materials above. This ventilated padding is enhanced by perforations that allow air to circulate more effectively. It is cut to a smaller shape that protects and supports the rider at crucial points against the saddle.
The Cirro O.F. pad has been specifically designed for Giordana's top-of-the-line bibs and shorts. The thickness varies and is 14mm at its maximum. The uppermost layer utilizes a special Nylon microfiber that incorporates Aloe Vera. The Aloe is permanently infused into the threads of the microfiber during the manufacturing process. The integrated Aloe cools, protects and even heals the skin while the rider is in the saddle. In addition, Aloe Vera is a natural defender against bacteria. Below this uppermost layer is a 4mm thick expanded memory foam with a waffled texture that aids in ventilation and perspiration management by moving moisture to the outside of the short where it can evaporate rapidly. Underneath the upper layers is an 8mm thick highly ventilated open cell padding that is handsewn to the materials above, which is cut to a unique smaller shape that protects and supports the rider at crucial points against the saddle.
