Giro and Zio Ziegler launch cycling collection

NorCal artist lends designs to Empire VR90, Synthe MIPS and more

Giro has partnered with Northern California artist Zio Ziegler for a limited edition collection called Arte Sempre × Giro Sport Design, consisting of shoes, helmet, gloves and hat.


Ziegler is a painter and sculptor who also happens to be a passionate mountain biker.

“For me, in terms of the parallels between riding bikes and making art, it’s all about flow and risk,” Ziegler said. “It’s about entering a state where you take all of your experiences and practice, and utilize it directly in that moment to execute something that you didn’t think was possible.”

The Arte Sempre × Giro Sport Design is on sale now at Competitive Cyclist and, and includes limited edition Synthe MIPS helmets, Empire VR90 Reflective shoes, Classic cotton caps and DND gloves.
