he cal­i­bre of women’s cy­cling at both pro­fes­sional and am­a­teur level has long been on a par with men’s, yet ap­pro­pri­ate qual­ity women’s-spe­cific kit is still thin on the ground. With the re­lease of its spring/ sum­mer 2017 line, how­ever, Giro is broad­en­ing its range of women’s ap­parel.

‘Nearly ev­ery­one at Giro rides a bike so there’s a con­stant source of in­spi­ra­tion from cur­rent bike cul­ture,’ says Stuart Hayes, brand man­ager for Giro at UK dis­trib­u­tor Zy­rofisher. ‘Women are an in­te­gral part of the de­sign and devel­op­ment teams, so their in­sight into what women re­quire nowa­days from both a fit and style per­spec­tive is fun­da­men­tal to what ends up in the prod­uct line.’

This sea­son’s range con­tains a num­ber of key items. The Em­ber hel­met is the lit­tle sis­ter to the range-top­ping Syn­the, comes in a women-spe­cific com­pact shape and is ‘pony­tail-com­pat­i­ble’; the Chrono Ex­pert jer­sey is light­weight and tai­lored to a woman’s body shape; and the Raes Tech­lace shoes are the equiv­a­lent de­sign and qual­ity to the men’s Sen­trie Tech­lace, ex­cept in women’s sizes.
