The most exciting new entry into urban cycling apparel for men this spring? It’s the Giro New Road collection of tops, shorts and outerwear that seeks to “redefine the silhouette of cycling” by giving everyday riders options beyond close-fitting, Spandex cycling kits.
For example, the SS Polo (photo below) is made from moisture-wicking wool and incorporates cycling-specific touches like shoulder vents for air circulation and a rear zip pocket. However, the shirt features the looser cut of a regular polo for comfort, performance and style on or off the bike. (It’s modeled on the Giro site by none other than cycling blogger and ace photographer John Prolly.) Complementary old-school styling shows as well in Giro’s new Republic lace-up cycling shoes and LX cycling gloves.
The trend toward stylish performance apparel that can be worn with ease all day is also seen in urban collections by Rapha, Outlier, Nau and growing numbers of fashion-oriented makers. View more from the Giro New Road collection here:
