You've been training hard, eating right, getting sleep, and have ultimately altered your social life in an attempt to crush this particular day penciled in on your calendar for quite a while now. With all this amount of dedication and sacrifice, it'd be a shame not to give yourself every performance advantage possible on race day. We'd like to make the argument for aerodynamic clothing and how it has a tremendous effect on how quickly and easily you can slice through the air. After all, our bodies present the most surface area for wind resistance, so tighter clothing with aero features is a proven formula for going faster with less effort. If you're looking to get on the steps of the podium at the next time trial or if you're expecting a selective breakaway at your next crit or road race, opt for snugger fitting and more aerodynamic clothing. The Giordana NX-G Chronosuit for women might seem like a steep investment on the surface, but it could help you more in an aero sense than a new helmet, frameset, or wheelset. It's unapologetically built for speed and with Giordana's rich history of working with professional cyclists to create high-performance clothing where every detail matters, this Chronosuit gets you access to the goods reserved for the sport's best. Show up on race day with performance-enhancing clothing and the psychological benefit of knowing that your clothing isn't holding you back.
This is perhaps one of the most technologically advanced skinsuits we've seen and its evident that Giordana poured some serious R&D into this one. Fully body mapped fabrics leave no excess material to flap in the wind. Progressive gradual compression in the legs and forearms support working muscles and the micro-massaging helps prevent undue fatigue and promotes active recovery letting you ride harder for longer. Every seam, material choice, and panel was scrutinized and tested for an optimum fit so it presents a streamlined, second-skin profile to the wind while in an aero position. Even dimples are used on the lightweight fabric, much like the ones we're familiar with on golf balls, creating a thin turbulent boundary layer of air clinging to the suit's surface. This allows the smoothly flowing air to follow your profile further around the sides and back, thereby decreasing the size of the wake. Even the stretchable zipper is placed on the back where it creates less turbulence and creates a smooth uninterrupted front. The shorts area is similar in construction to Giordana's renowned NX-G bib shorts, however, the legs are 2cm longer presenting more aerodynamic fabric to the wind. Inside, the Cirro C chamois extends its frontal padding area construction for more appreciated support when delivering the watts through the pedals in an aggressively forward position, while also minimizing bulk in the rear where it isn't needed as much.
For stopping the clock a little sooner and having a let up against your rivals, this skinsuit will definitely give you an advantage. Giordana put a lot of thought and time into this wind tunnel and WorldTour tested Chronosuit, and the benefits that professional time trialists and elite road cyclists use for their gains are now available for your own efforts at glory.
