Santini Gil Clio Bib Short - Women's $0.00
Tested by the world's best female riders.
Santini's Anima collection of apparel is dedicated to the women who ride for the Orica-Ais and Matrix-Prendas teams. These are the riders out there suffering and fighting each day, which, for Santini, provides the best real-world testing and product feedback. The technologically advanced materials and feminine fit that go into the Anima line make this apparel the ideal choice for the woman looking for the best in terms of fit, fabrics, and finish. The Gil Clio Bib Shorts fully represent these qualities, providing you with the comfort and support tested by the world's best female cyclists.
For the construction of the Gil Clio bib shorts, Santini used its Lycra Newport fabric to ensure a precise and comfortable fit. This material supports the legs' muscle groups through a slightly compressive weave. While it's not compressive enough to reduce lactic acid buildup via increased circulation, the fabric does offer enough support to minimize the detriment of fatigue from road vibration and general strain. Additionally, Newport is extremely breathable, and it has a heightened level moisture management. Ultimately, the fabric assists blood flow on an incremental scale, while providing a consistent thermo-regulation. Moving up to the bib straps, Santini applied its soft, breathable white mesh. These lightweight straps were designed specifically for a woman's anatomy, crossing at the chest to allow the ultimate in comfort and range of motion, while still providing the supportive nature Santinis bibs are known for.
And while high-end fabrics are fantastic, Santini's renown emanates from its characteristically Italian design and fit. Basically, Santini is aware that the Gil Clio shorts are made for riding, not lounging. So, each pair features a multi-paneled, minimally-seamed design that's been cut to greet the contours of your body while in motion. This means that, in the saddle, you won't experience any bunching or chafing. And to ensure that the fit remains secure, Santini incorporated its external, silicone leg grippers. These grippers apply even pressure across the leg, so you won't experience any pinching or loss in circulation.
As for the chamois, the Gil Clios use Santini's exclusive Gel Intech Lady (GIL) insert. This chamois approaches comfort from two fields -- abrasion reduction and support. Starting with abrasion, the GIL insert uses all internal stitching throughout, so chafing or irritation as a result of contact. Further along these lines, Santini made the chamois from two foam layers with variable densities between two and four millimeters. The top layer has an antimicrobial microfiber surface that provides constant hygiene and a smooth interface between the foam and the skin. For support, the padding is thicker at key points of pressure across the genital and gluteal regions. Additionally, in combination with the microfiber, the chamois is able to effectively reduce heat and wick away moisture.
The Santini Gil Clio Bib Shorts are available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the color Black.
