If you've followed professional road racing for a while, you're probably pretty familiar to seeing the sky blue and gold livery of the Kazakh registered team of Astana at the front of the peloton. Makes sense since names like Contador, Nibali, Armstrong, and Scarponi have all worn the colors at some point in their careers and have stood on the top step of the podium donning the team kit. So far this season, it's been hard not to cheer for team rider Jakob Fuglsang as he's come oh so close at huge races like Fleche, Amstel, and Strade. Sure, these bibs won't give us Jakob's unreal w/kg ratio needed to compete in the World Tour, but it does inspire us to pedal with a little more urgency on our rides. So if you consider yourself a fan, pick up the Vero Pro Astana Team Replica Bib Short from Giordana and fly the colors proud.The only differences between the Astana Vero Pro and the standard Vero are the team graphics and a proprietary fabric blend that lets Giordana sublimate those logos on the shorts. The Vero Pro has the same gently compressive Lycra through the crotch and inner thighs, the same four-centimeter wide leg gripper bands, and the same minimal yet supportive mesh bib straps. The team model also has the same Cirro OmniForm chamois with Aloe Vera infusion, for improved comfort and hygiene making the Vero an excellent companion on long base mileage outings.
