The Giordana Laser Women's Shorts offer you all the comfort and technology that you'd find in the bib shorts version, while still having the practical advantages that come by removing the suspenders.Just like the bib version, the Giordana Laser Shorts are anatomically shaped to fit you in the riding position and use Moovix fabric with its omni-directional elasticity that has the effect of a micro-massage on the muscles with each pedal stroke. This naturally promotes blood flow which will have enormous benefits the entire ride. The more blood you can move around to your muscles, the better your performance and recovery will be. And unlike some compression fabrics, the knit of the Moovix fabric wicks moisture rapidly to keep you comfortable in warm weather.Giordana adds carbon to control the stretch and reinforce the fabric. Four needle flat-stitched seams help to control stretch as well as isolate muscle groups. A wide soft band at the cuffs has silicone dots on the inside to hold the bottoms securely in place while you ride.The ALTA O.F. represents the highest level of technology available in women's specific chamois. Giordana has translated its Women's Contour Fit process to develop a pad that provides the appropriate protection for lady cyclists. The modified and streamlined silhouette of the pad is narrower which contours better to the female form on the bike. As a result, the ALTA is considerably less bulky, yet retains the protective qualities which will keep your bits comfy and un-rubbed even over the course of three to four hour rides. The insert is elastic and conforms to the body in motion, but returns every time to its original shape after activity.Reflective elements have been added for safety in the pre-dawn or after-dusk conditions. The Giordana Laser Women's Shorts are available in Black and White. They come in sizes X-Small through X-Large.
