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.
The Women's Cirro O.F. insert has been specifically designed for Giordana's top-of-line women's bibs and shorts. The thickness of the Cirro O.F. varies. The uppermost layer of the Cirro utilizes a special Nylon microfiber that incorporates Aloe Vera which is permanently incorporated into the material. The Aloe cools, protects, fights bacteria and even heals the skin while the rider is in the saddle. Below this layer is a second layer of expanded memory foam with a waffled texture that aids in ventilation and perspiration management. The foam is bonded on the bottom with an ultra-fine protective liner. Underneath the upper layer is a section of open cell padding cut in a unique smaller shape that protects and supports the rider at crucial points against the saddle.
MC-3 OF insert is a one piece, seamless insert that is both lightweight and flexible. Made of polyester microfiber, it is designed to adapt to the contours of the body in motion, permitting natural movement. The MC-3 OF insert is molded with Giordana's high-frequency OmniForm technology that eliminates the sharp edges and hard areas caused by the high temperature used in normal molding processes. It is constructed with differential thickness to provide more protection where needed while guaranteeing softness and comfort.
The MS-Mini is a one piece seamless multi-sport insert that provides lightweight non-restrictive comfort. The thin foam pad moves easily and won't become heavy if it's worn in water, making it ideal for use in Triathlon garments. Because it's invisible, the MS-Mini is a perfect insert for indoor cycling garments as well. With its smooth Lycra® inner surface, the MS Mini is hardly noticeable as it works to provide cushioned comfort.
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 Women's Nimbo O.F. is part of the OmniForm family of inserts. Created in response to consumer demand for more substantial women's specific padding. This seamless insert has a variable thickness. The uppermost layer of the Nimbo utilizes a soft polyester microfiber that incorporates a subtle texture that aids in perspiration management. Below this layer is expanded memory foam, then a thick section of perforated open cell padding that is thermally bonded to the materials above. This bottom layer is cut to protect the rider at crucial points against the saddle, comfortable contouring to the anatomy. Independent glut panels allow for maximum flexibility when the body is in motion.
WMC-3 is the women's specific version of our MC-3 insert. It is specially designed for use in our women's shorts. The pad is a result of a study focused on female body movements when pedaling, taking into account a woman's different protection needs. The WMC-3 is also molded using Giordana's HF™ (High Frequency) OmniForm processing technique to obtain a soft and extremely flexible insert. The pad is a single, seamless component with differentiated thickness to contour to the body and allow full freedom of movement. The advent of the WMC-3 makes shorts of the highest quality, comfort and performance available to women.
