Alfonsina Bib-Shorts Navy

Our Alfonsina women's bib shorts are made with a beautiful, luxury GreenLime™ pad that will encourage you to keep pushing mile after mile. The best bib shorts are those that you don't notice, and this is what we set out to design. Keeping you cool in the summer months, with fully dyed fabric across the whole short so that it maintains colour depth even as the material stretches. Available in both black and navy to match any of our cycling jerseys.

 

Features

 

Outstanding GreenLime™ anatomical, female-specifc Nuda pad with Kaarbo covering, the ultimate carbon fabric with tri-dimensional structure that helps canalize and eliminate sweat quickly. 

 

70/30 technology in the GreenLime™ pad; 70 percent of the thickness of the pad sits below the surface, creating a cover that is free from folds or edges with support in the critical locations.

 

Fully dyed for deep colour depth even over the parts that stretch most 

 

6 panel construction for excellent fit 

 

Mid-length leg flatters the cyclist's silhouette; neither too short nor knee-reaching

 

Comfortable silicon dots across the leg gripper keep the shorts in place without the need for a solid silicon band

 

Fabric:
80% Polyamide, 20% Elastane 


Wash:
Cool, 30 degrees

Why Alfonsina?


Alfonsina Strada remains to this day the only female cyclist to have started a full three-week men's professional Grand Tour: the 1924 Giro d'Italia. Evidently as hard as nails, she crashed heavily as the race approached Naples and snapped her handlebars. Taking a broomstick from a spectating peasant, she jammed it into the remaining half of her handlebars and continued to the finish, only to miss the time cut and be eliminated. Alfonsina, we salute you.
