Gonso started in 1926 in Albstadt-Onstmettingen on the Swabian Alb with the production of underwear and functional apparel such as training suits or long-distance apparel. Hans Gonser, the grandson of company founder Johannes Gonser, was only able to do sports on his bicycle in 1979 due to severe arthrosis, which soon resulted in severe injuries in the seat area. To counteract this, he had his Gonso development team sew a deerskin seat cushion into his shorts. At that time, professional cyclists were equipped with special cycling clothing by their sponsors, but there was not a single bike collection for hobby and leisure cyclists. Reason enough for Hans Gonser to change this: in 1980 Gonso launched the first collection of functional cycling clothing and the first cycling shorts with synthetic seat padding.
As a cycling shorts expert, Gonso knows one thing above all else: the most important basic requirement for enjoyable cycling is a really well-fitting pair of cycling shorts, where nothing pinches, rubs or hurts. Gonso's target groups are commuters, touring cyclists, mountain bikers and road cyclists. Whether beginners, occasional bikers, leisure and hobby cyclists or professionals. For such a multifaceted clientele, in which every person is anatomically different, Gonso concentrates above all on the perfect fit for every purpose, every performance level and for every body shape. Gonso cycling clothing is available in almost 40 different sizes for men and women as well as several short and long sizes. Although Gonso has special expertise in cycling shorts, it also offers a full range of cycling clothing. The portfolio includes cycling shorts, jerseys, cycling jackets and rainwear as well as accessories such as gloves, overshoes, helmet caps, arm and leg warmers. Even buttock cream can be found in the range.
1 Bike Shorts. 3 Variations. Perfect fit. - The SITIVO Bike Shorts Concept
The objective behind the SITIVO concept was to create the perfect cycling shorts for every use and every seating position. Gonso has analysed the problem of aching seat bones in detail. It quickly became clear that in addition to material and cut, the seat pad plays a central role and, depending on the respective seating position, different pressure points are created that require different padding. The result: 1 pair of shorts in different versions - as men's version with and without bibs and as women's shorts without bibs and each with 3 different seat pads for men and women for 3 different sitting positions: upright (SITIVO Comfort Blue, soft foam, reinforced padding in the rear area), compact (SITIVO Comfort Green, medium foam, even padding) and sporty (SITIVO Comfort Red, firmer foam, reinforced padding in the front area). Thus, the SITIVO optimally meets the individual requirements of every cyclist.
