When late-season weather truly becomes inconvenient -- we're talking rain and wind, not just a brisk fall morning -- most kit abandons its sense of tailoring and style to instead address all-out protection from the elements. It should come as no surprise to you that Giordana eschews this trend, creating the Giordana AV Bib Tight as a stylish way to stay dry and insulated in cooler weather. It starts with renowned SuperRoubaix fabric cut in a form-fitting, cycling-specific silhouette. The stretchy fabric excels at moisture management, and it also features a soft brushed interior that maintains a lofted layer of heat next to your skin to keep your muscles warm in cold temperatures. Atop Roubaix, Giordana adds its revamped Acqua Zero membrane, which repels water and wind as you ride and continues to insulate, even if a sudden storm hits and causes it to soak through. Even while it repels the elements, the fabric and its additional membranes pull moisture away from your skin to aide in temperature management as you climb and descend. Since dim light accompanies rainy days, Giordana employs highly reflective Pixel panels along the lower legs, aiming to use pedaling movement to catch the attention of motorists. Zippered cuffs make getting dressed and undressed a simple endeavor, and Giordana's capable Cirro S Chamois adds anatomically correct support and breathable cushioning as you log mileage for hours along wet roads.
