As more and more of us take to quiet off-road tracks, seeking an escape from increasing traffic and to get back to the simple thrill of cycling through beautiful countryside, we still want the same comfort from our off-road kit as we enjoy on road. Sportful have addressed this move towards all-surface riding with their Giara range, and here, in particular, the Super Giara Bib Shorts. The cut is designed for a slightly more upright riding position and the fabric is more durable to take on trailside vegetation and come through unscathed. To give you extra load carrying capacity you'll find mesh pockets on the back of the bibs and a thigh pocket for easy access to gels and bars, allowing extra space in bar and saddle bags for more kit. The lie-flat bibs use an open mesh so you'll find that ventilation is optimised and sweat is wicked away for dryness all ride long. A newly developed lightweight pad, specifically designed for dirt roads, sees multi-density open-cell foam used to provide shock absorption over rougher surfaces. Meanwhile, the shorter shape of the pad has been developed taking into account the more upright position of gravel and all-road bikes, ensuring perfect levels of support. The Super Giara Bib Shorts are all about the thrill of adventure and the simple enjoyment of a bike ride on new or old routes made fresh and exciting thanks to two wheels that can take you anywhere.
