FR-C Pro Short-Sleeve Jersey
Giordana is always at the forefront of developing premium level lightweight and breathable fabrics while constructing its cycling clothing and the FR-C Pro Short-Sleeve Jersey is no exception. An excellent fit provided by its BodyClone technology creates a second skin fit that is both form-fitting and aerodynamic. This jersey will help you maintain your peak performance in the hottest conditions.
The FR-C jersey's fabric is extremely lightweight and breathable and used on kits Giordana provides for its sponsored pro teams. This version sees Asteria 3.0 panels throughout the jersey. The lightweight microfiber blend is super soft to the touch and breathes exceptionally well and manages moisture while blocking UV rays. The jersey's race cut is very comfortable while in the riding position and creates an aerodynamic fit.
The rear of the jersey sees a unique I- Panel that contours over the shoulders and down the spine, supporting 3 rear pockets and a zippered side pocket, preventing sagging and further enhancing the form-fit. Laser cut Thermo-fused arm cuffs continue the aero fit and keep the sleeves in place without constriction.
The collar is flat and low profile sitting close to the neck virtually eliminating irritation. A CamLock zipper effortlessly glides up and down with one hand to dump heat as needed on the hottest days. Guards are placed at the top and bottom of the zipper preserving the jersey.
The FR-C Pro Short-Sleeve Jersey is well suited for warm and hot weather rides and adding a base layer extends the jersey into cooler temps.
- A form-fitting road jersey for warm weather rides
- Laser-cut arm cuffs smooth transition from sleeve to skin
- Four rear pockets haul gear for long rides
- Asteria fabric is compressive, breathable, and stretchy

Had to return this as it is really under sized. For comparison, Castelli is typically small, which I wear a large in. A large in this brand is even smaller. Really tight across the chest to where it hardly zipped. Short too. 6’1”. 175. 40inch chest. Had to return it unfortunately.

Tight fit and a bit short
It's a great jersey, but if you have an extra poundage in your stomach area, it's going to be tricky. The tight fit means it'll pull across your stomach some. More importantly, it'll run short. I picked up another Giordana jersey with a looser fit and it's not as bad in terms of length. So, if you really must do this one you should size up.

So far, I only have a few rides in the FR-C Pro jersey, but it has been nothing but the best thus far. Very light and breathable, so that helps when it gets warm out. Overall, it is very comfortable, but still is form-fitting. The pockets are great and offer lots of carrying space. The sleeves are a bit longer than what you would find on more affordable jerseys, and I prefer that. I have found that they stay in place better. I think that it is definitely worth it to spend the extra cash on a nice kit, it makes your rides that much more enjoyable.

A PRO JERSEY FOR US NON-PELOTON RIDERS
Fit and quality are excellent on this jersey as they are usually with Giordana. The piece is a slim cut but not second-skin, it's perfectly tailored to contour to your body but at the same time not feel restricting. As with all Giordana's pieces it is a European fit so size accordingly. The sleeves aren't too long and have comfortable wide grippers and the pockets don't sag in the back, with a bottom hem below them that doesn't ride up. Material is light and breathable, especially on the back, your bib straps will be visible through it, so be aware of that. I'd recommend this jersey to anyone looking for a summer jersey to wear day in and day out.

To give a brief update, after more riding the jersey is still quite comfortable, and there's no wear to the materials. It's been light and breathable and cut very nicely.

Forget about it
What's the best compliment I can give to any piece of cycling kit? That I didn't notice it. In 99% of cases, the reason that you're thinking about your bibs, jersey, saddle, bar tape, shoes, etc. is that something is wrong. (Your chamois is out of place, your shoes are giving you hot spots, your saddle feels like a brick covered in shards of glass....) The FR-c Pro jersey is so well executed in every regard that I forget it's there. The cut is perfect, it's accommodating without feeling lose, the materials are soft without feeling watery, the sleeves are actually cut long enough! (Take note everyone else.) I also love the color palette that Giordana opted for. With only the most basic discretion, it's impossible not to look classy! Size-wise, Giordana runs about a size larger than Castelli, around half a size up from Assos, and a hair smaller than Pearl. Feel free to reach out to me directly at email@example.com if you have any questions!

Look good, feel good, go fast! Aside from the NX-G series, it doesn't really get much better than this. Just because you don't race in a skinsuit doesn't mean you won't feel like a pro putting in miles with this jersey. Fit is trim, but flattering. No excessive fabric around the waist and minimal seams mean you'll barely notice you have something on. All in all a great jersey to keep your closet stocked with.

I live in the tropic where the weather is hot most of days and this jersey is by far the most breathable and comfortable I’ve had. Fits true to size
