OmniForm™ Chamois

The Giordana OmniForm™ collection of chamois are named for their ability to conform to the shape of the rider and move with the body in motion. Our chamois molds are proprietary and specifically designed to pair with Giordana bibs and shorts, so you never have to deal with on-the-bike adjustments.

About Creams... (you don't need them)

Our chamois are made with a stretchable microfiber layer closest to the skin. This ensures optimal breathability and wicking of perspiration to keep you comfortable. The use of chamois creams is unnecessary with OmniForm chamois and in fact, we don't recommend using creams, balms, or butters of any kind with our chamois. These products decrease the ability of the chamois to breathe and wick moisture by filling the open spaces. Chamois creams were designed to work with the leather materials that chamois were originally made of – materials that could harden, crack, and dry out. Creams were used to soften and lubricate the leather surface to combat friction during riding.

Modern day microfibers are completely different from those old style chamois. Our Giordana microfibers temporarily and lightly bond with the skin during the ride, so the chamois moves with you and no friction is present to cause irritation. In contrast, the use of creams creates a slippery surface, prevents the microfiber from bonding to the skin, and introduces friction. Repeated use of creams can soften the skin, increasing the likelihood of abrasion. For those riders who feel there may be times when a little ointment is beneficial, it should be used sparingly. Apply a thin layer to the skin (never directly to the chamois or fabric) and allow to dry completely before putting on the bibs or shorts.

CIRRO S

MEN'S CHAMOIS

The Cirro S chamois is specifically designed for our top-of-the-line men's bib shorts, shorts, tights, and knickers. This chamois is designed to provide comfort, moisture management, support, and protection from chaffing or numbness so you can focus on the road ahead.

Aloe Vera infused microfiber cools, protects, and is a natural defender against bacteria.

Thickness varies to uniquely support each area of the body that touches the saddle and is 11mm at its maximum.

Copa Mondiale recessed area at the front of the chamois provides comfort and support for male anatomy.

Four Layer Construction The uppermost layer utilizes an all-way stretch microfiber that incorporates Aloe Vera that is permanently infused into the threads of the microfiber during the manufacturing process using Nano technology. The second layer is actually comprised of 2 materials. A 3mm thick high density open cell foam aids in ventilation and perspiration management by moving moisture away from the skin to the outside of the short where it can evaporate quickly. This is thermo formed to a 4mm, 120 density foam. The final layer is a 3mm thick nonabsorbent memory foam. Cirro S is sculpted and a final compression is made to soften any hard edges.

The CIRRO S Chamois is used in the following collections :

Men's NX-G  | Men's FR-C Pro  | Men's G-Shield

Four Layer Construction The uppermost of four layers utilizes a special Nylon microfiber that incorporates Aloe Vera, which is permanently incorporated into the material at a nano level so it will not dissipate over time. Below is a layer of expanded memory foam with a waffled texture that aids in ventilation and perspiration management. The foam is bonded on the bottom with an ultra-fine protective liner. Underneath the upper layer is a section of open cell padding cut in a unique smaller shape that protects and supports the rider at crucial points against the saddle.

Aloe Vera Infusion

Giordana is constantly at the forefront of innovation, developing and testing new materials, processes and technologies that will enhance the cycling experience. More than a decade ago, Giordana introduced the first and only chamois on the market to harness the benefits of Aloe.

Giordana chamois utilize a special Nylon microfiber that incorporates Aloe Vera. The Aloe component is not a treatment, but is permanently incorporated into the material. Particles of Aloe Vera are infused into the threads of the microfiber during the manufacturing process so that the benefits will not wash out or fade over time. The integrated Aloe cools, protects and even heals the skin while the rider is in the saddle.

CIRRO

MEN'S CHAMOIS

The Cirro chamois benefits from decades of testing and development, specifically to fit within Giordana men's bibs and shorts. The 3-layer chamois features variable thickness and is 13mm at its maximum. The uppermost layer utilizes a special Nylon microfiber that incorporates Aloe Vera that is permanently infused into the threads during the manufacturing process so the benefits do not dissipate over time. The integrated Aloe cools, protects, naturally defends against bacteria, and even heals the skin while the rider is in the saddle. Below this uppermost layer is a 4mm thick expanded memory foam with a waffled texture that aids in ventilation and perspiration management by moving moisture to the outside of the short where it can evaporate rapidly. Underneath the upper layers is an 8mm thick highly ventilated open cell padding that is handsewn to the materials above, which is cut to a unique smaller shape that protects and supports the rider at crucial points against the saddle.
