Giordana technical bicycle clothing was started by the owner of Gita Sporting Goods, Ltd., Giorgio Andretta, in 1980. From the beginning Gita designed, imported and distributed Giordana apparel, while at the same time, worked closely with the biggest American teams and events of the day. The list of partnerships included Levi's/Raleigh, which evolved into Levi's/Pinarello, Bud Light, Dia-Compe/Aspen Velo, the US PRO Championships and numerous others. This involvement with elite athletes provided invaluable feedback and insured that the clothing met the needs of American enthusiasts yet retained the authenticity of true Italian race wear.
In the 21st century Giordana continues to push the technology envelope, still benefiting from symbiotic relationships with athletes of all levels. The list of elite teams and organizations continues to grow each year. Innovation at Giordana is perpetual. Designs are always evolving and manufacturing processes are under constant review. In 2004 APG moved into a new purpose-built facility that brings all phases of assembly under one roof. This has contributed greatly to streamlining the manufacturing process even further. Today, custom orders can be delivered in as little as 60 days.
