A MEDIUM WEIGHT SHORT BUILT FOR PERFORMANCE AND COMFORT USING A CONTOURED MULTI-PANEL CONSTRUCTION WITH CHPT3 GIRONA EMBOSSED ON THE REAR PANEL AND THE C3G INSIGNIA ON THE RIGHT LEG.

Girona is north east of Barcelona, deep in the heart of Catalonia, it‰۪s origins go back over 2000yrs to when the Romans ruled, over the next thousand years it changed hands from the Romans to the Visigoths to the Moors before eventually finding itself under long term Spanish rule and eventual professional cyclist inundation. åÊThis is where CHPT3 was created and where its design studio is based. It‰۪s where we ride every day and where we test each and every one of our products alongside the best racing cyclists in the world.
These shorts are our answer to what is the best every day short? The fabric is a 190 g/m2 weight with 35% Lycraå¨ XTRA LIFE‰ã¢ content. The shorts are constructed in a contoured multipanel fashion, unlike the flagship 1.11 shorts, which use a more expensive body paint construction method. The seat pad if the tried and tested Castelli Kiss Pad although it has been slightly tweaked in this version and is the best yet.åÊ
The 9cm high grip silicon dot leg band was first developed for our Defiant short and has been transferred to the GIRONA short as it proved so good in offering distributed grip on the leg and preventing slippage or indentation. As for the aesthetics: the colour is vulcan and in the right light you can see the slightest hint of blue, CHPT3 GIRONA is embossed on the rear panel and the C3G insignia on the leg, we found this to be a more subtle solution than screen printing or heat transferring on to what is a beautifully elegant short. The red interior label is red to signify the CHPT3 GIRONA range and is jacquard embroidered.
