Description

From factory floor to double Giro champion, Franco Balmamion’s rise through the ranks of Italian cycling was meteoric even for a rider known as the ‘Eagle of Canavese’. After overcoming his tyrannical teammate Nino Defilippis to take a debut win in 1962, Franco doubled up the following year to become the first Italian since Coppi to defend his Giro title. This special edition version of our Classic Bib Shorts honours his victories with ‘Bianco e Nero’ detailing celebrating his Torinese team. Made for comfort on any kind of ride, the bibs feature a dual-density, size-specific chamois pad. For temperature regulation, the uppers are highly breathable with subtle Italian stripes. The luxurious lycra fabric is soft against the skin with optimal compression for a stable fit. Low-profile leg grippers keep the shorts in place, and there’s also a rear pocket with a hidden story label.
