Giro New Road 5M Overshort Review

Momentum Mag reviews the Giro New Road 5M Overshort.



Giro’s 5M Overshorts are part of their New Road collection, a line dedicated to comfortable, stylish cycling clothing. Domestically sewn in California, these shorts are made from a 10 percent Merino wool and 90 percent Poly Blend. Available in two colors in Slim and Regular fits, sizes 28, 30, 32, 34, and 36.


Definitely more stylish then the average performance short, Giro’s 5M Overshort is made of a really substantial, interesting fabric that makes them smart enough to wear with a dress shirt but comfortable enough to easily cycle in. There are plenty of storage options with the quick access button back pockets, a zippered phone/ key pocket, and roomy front pockets. The higher waist back, gusset crotch, and moisture-wicking wool/ poly blend make these shorts perfect for a summer city commuter.
