The Vero Pro Short Sleeve Doppio Tri Suit bottoms fit well and stay in place easily thanks to the top holding them up and the jersey stays aero more easily thanks to the shorts pulling down the jersey. The ‘secret’ is that the jersey is sewn about 2/3 of the way around the top of the shorts, providing the comfort of separates and the fit and aero advantages of a skinsuit.
The top features a full zipper to make getting in and out a breeze. The zipper finishes its route at the neck inside a zipper garage to minimize the likelihood of chafing. The neck itself is slightly scooped with no collar to lie flat whether running or riding, even when unzipped. The arms don’t feature hems, but the sleeves are contoured at the ends so they can lie flat for better aerodynamics; because of the fit, no gripper material is necessary.
That material, the front panels, shoulders, and sleeves are made of a stretchy, smooth microfiber that wicks well. The back is made of three-dimensional, woven, directional-stretch textile that is great at evaporating sweat, something that is nice on the ride and super on the run and is strong enough to prevent over-stuffed pockets from sagging. Those pockets have side access and actually are underneath the back panel, keeping them super aero. The pockets, collar, and jersey waist hem are finished with Lycra piping for comfort.
The shorts are adapted from the Vero Pro Tri Shorts. The biggest difference is the contoured front panel that replaces the drawstring. As the sewn-on top basically functions as bibs, no drawstring is necessary.
The main textile employed for these bottoms is Top Gear Lycra Power. It’s a durable, abrasion-resistant, low-compression, high-stretch spandex that is finished with a Durable Water Repellant (DWR) treatment to minimize water-logging, whether that’s sweating on a run, a steep climb, or even a swim. The DWR treatment also improves durability as it improves the garment’s resistance to chlorine.
Giordana's tri-specific chamois is sewn into the bottoms via Tri-Stitch sewing. This three-step zigzag method makes the chamois and short one for greater comfort and durability.
