Not every ride has to be a hammerfest, a snot-bubble TT, or an epic day of QOMs. Sometimes a ride can just be a ride, the kind of day when we leave stressful ambitions at home and are more interested in the arc of a smile and the turn of the cranks than rise and fall of power output graphs while segment hunting. Giro builds the Chrono Sport Shorts for those days, which makes them ideally suited for what so often turn out to be our favorite days in the saddle. The Sports body is made from a stretchy nylon blend thats shaped to distill the shorts down to the most basic level of long-mile functionality. The material lacks the compression of Giros top-tier Chrono Pro Shorts, but the shorts are finished with a stretch waist band and Giros Custom Sport Chamois, details that demonstrate Giros efforts to privilege comfort over flash.
