If your summer riding schedule includes regularly climbing through soaring temperatures under an unforgiving sun, Giordana's Sahara Men's Bib Shorts might make a significant difference in your ride quality.

Not only do the bib straps help the Sahara feel more comfortable while standing, they also stay in place on the bike, moving with you as you sit and stand to climb. Also redesigned t...
