WITH aerodynamics seen as an important area in all types of riding and not just in time trials, the Giordana Body Clone range looks like the solution for those wanting an aero clothing package but not a skinsuit.

The shorts are a great fit with a good leg length and excellent gripper that does not irritate even in extreme heat. All the seams are well machined with no discomfort and after three months’ use they still seem built to last. The chamois is a seamless one-piece that fits the body so well it’s barely noticeable. Panel cut ensures a

great fit, especially while riding, which is when it matters.

The Body Clone jersey features the same body-hugging design, with the panelling and cut making the jersey fit much like a skinsuit. Sleeve and body hems are held flush to the skin with a deep silicon gripper ensuring a continual fit. Three deep rear pockets carry all the usual essential items with a small zipper pocket useful for keeping keys and money safe.

Jersey available in white, black, blue and red. Shorts available in black or white.

Verdict

Great-fitting kit with a carefully thought-out purpose
