For when the heat is on.
We're not gonna lie, we love riding bikes during the summer. There's so much daylight available allowing us to plan out epic routes that we daydream about in the depths of winter. It does come with its own requirements for clothing if you want to remain comfortable and not overheat though, so if your like us and want to get the most out of your summer rides, grab Giordana's new FR-C Short-Sleeve Pro Lyte Jersey for men and go ahead and plan out a new record mileage ride for yourself. When the mercury is on the rise, this will be the jersey you'll consistently reach for.
Weighing in at an impressive 85 grams, this flyweight jersey certainly ensures you aren't hauling around any extra material. It's crafted from a perforated material that helps maximize breathability and ventilation, while the woven ceramic material enhances UV protection. Usually, heading up climbs, we'll fully unzip the jersey, channeling our inner Richard Virenque as he danced on the pedals up Mont Ventoux. The truth is, our climbs probably aren't as steep as what Spotted Dick rode, and as great as it feels to rock a jersey unzipped, it isn't the best for aerodynamics. Keeping it zipped up is not only faster, it offers more support through its second skin fit and the ventilated panels allow air to enter the jersey providing cooling. The rear is designed not to sag even when the three pockets are filled up with all the necessaries for a long day on the bike, and the reflective piping along the lower hem helps with visibility if you're chasing the sun on the way back home.

I only tried this jersey on, but I could tell immediately this will be a nice summer jersey. Super lightweight breathable material. Fit is a little longer than most other race fit jersey I have tried, in the torso but especially in the sleeves. Nice locking zipper and the pockets are supported and will hold items snug. Great jersey. Highly recommend.
