    Justifying hyperbole.

    Giordana's press materials call out the men's FormaRed Carbon Jersey with the usual array of marketing hyperbole: "elite," "performance," "innovative," etc. If you're like us, you typically ignore that kind of language and focus on two things in order to determine a jersey's merits — fit and fabric — and since the FormaRed Carbon Jersey sits like it's painted-on but feels so unrestrictive that it virtually disappears once you're in the saddle, we'd say that it actually lives up to the hyperbole.

    The jersey owes its hyperbole-justifying fit primarily to two fabrics, Asteria and Host Carbon. Asteria constitutes most of the jersey, wrapping the torso from the front panel to the center back, where it meets a supportive spine of Host Carbon. The Asteria portions are compressive, moisture-managing, and lightweight, so the jersey's body breathes well while conferring a bit of fatigue resistance by compressing your muscles to reduce the negative effects of vibration. It's also very stretchy, so the Host Carbon spine plays host to the structural demands of wearing the jersey, supporting the compressive fit and three rear pockets. The sleeves are laser-cut to lie flat, and the jersey is finished with reflective details and a fourth, zippered pocket for keys or cash.

    • Sleek road racing fit eliminates unnecessary material
    • Asteria fabric is compressive, breathable, stretchy for comfort on the hottest rides
    • Laser-cut arm cuffs eliminate transition ridges from skin to jersey
    • Three reflective details and three rear pockets keep you safe and well supplied
    • Item #GIO001J

    Downward spiral from glory days of FRC

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I own 4 pairs of FRC from 2013 so this is my reference point for comparison. The new model does not improve in any way from 2013. But it's significantly worse in several ways:
    - the material on the shoulders feels cheaper
    - the zipper, instead of being made of metal, is made of plastic and has trouble engaging. You have to be really careful when zipping up the shirt.
    - worst of all, the front of the shirt is semi-transparent. What?

    I'm staying away from Giordana until/if they figure out their quality control. I expect far more from a $200 jersey.

    I agree ...
    I have both the 2013 version, which is great, and the 2016 (?) version.
    Along with the above comments, add: Material on shoulders 'Flaps' in the wind when going (somewhat) fast on a descent. Very disappointing, and not acceptable at ANY price-point close to this jersey's!
    Looks good though ...

    One of the Best Jerseys for Long Days

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    First off, the sizing chart on this site is incorrect. Based on my chest size, i should be wearing a large jersey (40-inch). I went to the Giordana website and their sizing chart is updated (medium 38-39). I choose the medium jersey and it fits perfect! I'm 151 lbs and I like the tight/slim fit. The construction of this jersey is well made and I do not think this jersey will over stretch over time. I've ridden several 60 mile rides and this jersey is quite comfortable in 90-95F heat in Arizona.

    The sizing on Giordana's website is very different than what you have here. For size Small, they say is 37-38 vs 34-35 here. That's a BIG difference. Who should I believe?
