RAPID FIRE

59 cyclingmag­azine.ca The Biemme Angrilu jersey ($ 120, logicaspor­t.com) gets its name from the fearsome climb that’s to feature in Stage 15 of this year’s Vuelta a España. You may not take it up a 3-km section with an average grade higher than 20 per cent, but you’ll be set no matter what climb you face. The pattern even evokes inclines of various gradients. The Biemme Legend Eco bib shorts ($ 140) have nicely shaped panels past the straps that sit well on your back. Long cuffs provide grip at your quads. Two fabrics are at work on the Giordana Silverline women’s jersey ($ 190, unoimports.com). The main panels provide structure, while the honeycomb material on the shoulders, sleeves, back, waist and rear pockets is all about letting the breeze keep you cool. The cut isn’t an aggressive raceorient­ed one, but will still serve you well if you’re on a spirited ride. The Giordana FR-C women’s bib shorts ($ 275) come with the company’s top-of-the-line chamois, the Cirro S-W. It’s infused with aloe vera, which has antibacter­ial properties. The compressio­n provided by the Lycra panels helps to support your muscles as the kilometres tick by.
