CHPT3 GIRONA: An introduction
As the perfect long, warm days arrive in our hometown of Girona, the city is bustling with cyclists from across the globe. 100 or so among them are the professional riders who call Girona home, getting their last training blocks completed prior to the Tour de France, or resting up following the Giro d’Italia.
What better place then to launch our first everyday collection of cycling clothing? We’ve clocked more kilometres on these roads than anywhere else in the world, it's where our company is based and it's the testing ground for our products, so it made total sense to honour the city with our all new, high performance, most affordable collection yet.
Let us introduce you to Girona, the cycling capital of the world.
The Girona collection is made to offer the very best in everyday performance. It's comprised of of two jerseys, both made from the same fabric as the Castelli Maglia Rosa, worn by Team SKY to victory in the Giro d’Italia - a race weight, aerodynamic and high wicking material chosen for its all-round ability.
The range also sees the introduction of our first ever black bib shorts. A medium-weight short built for performance and all-day comfort using a contoured multi-panel construction and featuring a special version of the Castelli KISS pad - much adored by the pro peloton.
And what collection would be complete without the perfect socks? Adhering to pro-favoured cuff length, our GIRONA socks are crafted from the most advanced mix of polyamide yarns, making them unbeatably soft, comfortable and hard wearing. Owing to permanent odour-reducing antimicrobial properties, these are the socks your room-mates will thank you for owning.
So, whether you're booking flights over to this great city, or picking up the kit that's inspired by it, we're pleased to welcome you to our beautiful home, Girona.
