Who Could Ask For Anything More?
Giordana never ceases to amaze with us how they continue to advance materials and fit that simply outclasses other brand offerings and in fact, their own previous kits. The use of premium level lightweight and breathable fabrics crafted with Giordana’s Body Clone technology creates a fit that puts the Women's FR-C Pro Short-Sleeve Jersey in a league of its own. This jersey is ready for you to pin a number on and toe the line or respond to a flurry of attacks on the Tuesday World Championship ride. Many jerseys claim to do well in warm and hot weather rides but after riding in several jerseys, this one is a step above. In late spring or early fall when conditions are cool but not cold, pair with a base layer and arm warmers to extend versatility into those conditions.
The FR-C Jersey strategically places different fabrics throughout the jersey where they will perform best. A lightweight microfiber blend of materials sits softly against the skin and is designed to breathe, block out UV rays, reduce bacterial funk, and move perspiration away from your skin. A lightweight satin-like mesh makes an appearance under the arms, on the rear pockets, and at the collar reducing irritation, and providing additional ventilation.
Materials are nothing without a proper fit and like all FormaRed-Carbon garments, this short sleeve jersey employs Giordana’s BodyClone cut for a slim silhouette. This yields impressive aerodynamics and allows the materials to better do their job. All Giordana Women's apparel is designed using the Women's Contour Fit system, optimizing the paneling and construction for a female's form in the riding position. A unique I-Panel contours over the shoulders and down the spine supporting two pockets to prevent sagging. Laser cut Thermo-fused arm cuffs lay flat while the waistband features elastic at the hem keeping the jersey perfectly in place whether you are in or out of the saddle. The ergonomic collar receives a relief at the back of the neck for unrestricted movement while the flat and low profile rolled material finish at the front neckline is soft and comfortable. A full CamLock reversed zipper is easily maneuverable and locks in the down position.

I can credit this jersey with getting me through rides this summer in the deeply humid climate of Northern Wisconsin. I went with the large here--which fits well, if a bit long for my torso. The fabric wicks well, and is comfortable. The pockets are stretchy enough to hold all the goodies you may need for those warm rides. I docked a star as the zipper busted on my after only a couple rides--it was easy enough to repair but an unexpected bummer on an expensive jersey.
