Three levels introduced for both men and women

Preview: Giro Chrono series

Giro has today revealed the new Chrono collection for men and women, comprising three tiers – Pro, Expert and Sport.

The line debuts with an early release of the Chrono Pro level available in select retailers now, to be joined by Chrono Expert and Chrono Sport in January 2016. 

“From the very beginning with our New Road collection, we’ve broken fresh ground with Giro cycling apparel,” said Giro Apparel Product Director Nathan Mack. “Chrono is a natural evolution of Giro’s philosophy, delivering race-inspired and informed performance to all riders, regardless of whether they’ll ever pin a number onto one of our jerseys.”

The Chrono line will be available to view at this week’s Eurobike show.

In the meantime, here’s the details from Giro:

Chrono Pro: All-out Road Performance

The Chrono Pro Bib is the result of over two years of exhaustive design, research, and testing. All-day comfort comes from a host of performance features, including the custom Chrono Pro chamois, custom bib straps, and a unique lumbar support panel. The Chrono Pro Jersey pairs lightweight and breathable fabrics for the best-fitting performance jersey possible. Subtle design benefits include a tapered collar and secure zip pocket that features a moisture barrier for your valuables.
