    Ceramic Short-Sleeve Base Layer

    It's rare to see a garment touted for its ability to function in diametrically opposed conditions, but then not all companies are Giordana. Its Men's Short-Sleeve Ceramic Base Layer features futuristic fabric technology said to both reflect the sun's hot rays to keep you cool in warm weather and conversely trap in heat when the temperatures plummet to keep you insulated and warm in the cold.

    The star behind this versatility is the Resistex Bioceramic fabric, which is a synthetic microfiber blend that's fused with mineral bio-ceramic crystals. Giordana claims these crystals actually reflect external heat while working to maintain body temperatures. The result is that the material actively works to maintain thermal homeostasis, keeping your body in its comfort zone whether the weather is hot or cold or somewhere pleasantly in between. Capped off with streamlined, four-panel construction, this base layer is the perfect addition to nearly any day's kit.

    • A versatile cycling base layer for use in most conditions
    • Material blend maintains body temperature in hot and cold
    • Four panel construction reduces bulk with a slim fit
    • Item #GIO006H

    I have a drawer full of the Super Lightweight polypropolene knit baselayers from Giordana, but they tend to absorb a lot of sweat and over time lose their bright white appearance. I purchased this Ceramic woven version to try out and wore it today on a Cat 2 climb in 81 degree weather. It is very impressive. It wicks and evaporates moisture much better than my others, and stayed almost completely dry to the touch during the entire ride and in the car on the way home. The rest of my body was dripping with sweat as usual, but my core was comfortable. It is very soft and has the pile that would suggest cool weather only, but it worked perfectly in 80 degree temps. Only downside is you cannot dry it in a dryer. It has to hang. So the only solution is to purchase another one (which I just did), so I can rotate them. Highly recommended!

    Used this item 3 times this winter under a wind breaking long sleeve jersey in 40-55 degree weather riding for 90 minutes at a moderate pace and found it performed to my satisfaction. I would prefer to wear this in cool weather as it has the required loft and I feel it would be too warm for typical warmer weather.
