A jersey designed to be abused.
Giordana know that your jersey receives a wealth of abuse over the season. Sun, sweat, and countless washings take a toll on your kit, which is why it developed its new rugged Trade line of apparel. This collection grew from prototype fabrics and designs put to the test by professional cycling teams around the world. Giordana says that by using real-world testing, this new line 'benefits from the input of the toughest critics in the sport.' The resulting Vero illustrates this development process, as it stands as the workhorse jersey of the Giordana line. After all, you need your jersey to remain looking and working its best throughout your busy cycling season.
For the bulk of the jersey, Giordana constructed Vero with its Micron fabric. This lightweight material is a professional-grade fabric that wicks and breathes incredibly well. As an added bonus, Giordana designed Micron to be highly-resistant to color fading. This treatment ensures that you'll be flying the bright Giordana colors for years to come. This fabric uses a polyester microfiber composition that's been formed with a textured, honeycomb knit. Combined, the material and knit elevate the Vero's level of breathability. Concurrently, the jersey's moisture management system has been further enhanced. Now, moisture is rapidly wicked away from the skin and transported to the quick-drying surface of the jersey. As a result, you'll remain dryer, cooler, and more comfortable during long exertions in the saddle.
In terms of fit, the Vero represents a more relaxed tone in comparison to the rest of the Giordana line. It's still cut in relation to the contoured shape of the body within the cycling position, however, you'll find it less constrictive and more forgiving over long base miles. Securing this fit is Giordana's light elastic at the waistband. By not adding elastic at the cuffs, you maintain a full range of motion that is free from the bunching and restriction often caused by grippers built into jerseys' arm bands.
To store your essentials, Giordana included three ample cargo pockets at the rear. And to increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions, the Vero was treated with reflective accents throughout the jersey. Finishing off the Vero is full-front zipper with rubber gripper pull tab.
The Giordana Vero Jersey is available in six sizes from Small to 3X-Large and in the Vini Fantini-Farnese colorway.
