After two years of research, laboratory work and tests, the most technologically advanced 217 Giro shirt was made. Its fitting cut was made with an idea to combine aerodynamics with the innovative nanofiber technology.
The front is made of fibers of the thickest possible knit, yet it still managed to maintain a low weight, thanks to use of a lighter yarn. The back panel of the shirt is made of a material with 3D structure – that way it could fit perfectly and maintain optimal thermals. Fitting sleeves with carbon fibers increase the bacteriostatic feature.
The shirt has a short collar reminiscent of track outfits in its appearance. Combining all those materials increases the water repelling abilities while also increasing the temperature margin. All the materials are coated with a UV filter.
The shirt was made with utmost care: it has reflective inserts, zipper protections and laser-cut sleeves that end with a modern, stabilizing silicone coating. The shirt’s bottom combines reflective elements with Antislip.
