Tower over your competition.
Giordana's Trade FRC Torre Jersey represents over 30 years in the world of cycling, and, as the word "torre" translates — "towers" over the Giordana lineup. Based on three decades of fabric engineering and manufacturing, it features unmatched fit, creating a "second skin" that moves with you on the bike, while also keeping you cool and dry.
The main body of the jersey was constructed from the slightly compressive and soft Asteria 2.0 fabric. It provides a high level of muscle support, which helps to resist road vibration and oscillation. Additionally, the material's threads per centimeter (TPC) is among the highest available on the market. This means that, compared to most competition, the FRC is softer, more conforming, and has a higher level of wicking capability. And remarkably, Asteria 2.0 achieves this at a lighter weight than most Lycra blends. Why is this important? Well, if you've worn compressive fabrics, you'll have noticed that they're heavy in comparison to traditional Lycra. So, this fabric encompasses their key traits without the detriment of a weighty, poorly-breathing composition.
For moisture management, Asteria 2.0 features a honeycomb knit construction that rapidly pulls moisture away from the skin. From there, the moisture evaporates at the surface due to the fabric's new treatment. However, with Asteria's breathability being coupled with the ultralight Micro-mesh panels at the underarms and inner-collar, thermo-regulation and core temperature are so well managed that your perspiration rate is greatly reduced. But, should you need to perform an on-the-fly heat dump, the jersey is equipped with a full-length zipper.
So what exactly is the "carbon" in FormaRed Carbon? Well, it actually covers the back and side panels — Host Carbon to be exact. Essentially, this material features a lightweight composition with a carbon fiber filament. Why? With the carbon filament, material stretch becomes omnidirectional and controlled, but not just in the supportive sense. Basically, the carbon reinforces the honeycomb-knit Lycra, making it lighter, yet stronger, and allowing it to universally stretch in all directions, not just four-way. Additionally, the carbon fiber blocks out static and rogue atmospheric electrical interference for an increased anaerobic output and a delayed onset of fatigue.
Rounding out the construction is the most important feature of the jersey — its fit. FRC benefits from Giordana's innovative contoured cut. Essentially, the jersey has been created on a curve in order to clone your body in the cycling position. By doing this, abrasion is minimized, and fabric bunching and pinching is eliminated. To secure this position, Giordana incorporated its Aerofix arm cuffs and waistband. At the cuffs, the new Aerofix design uses a low-profile, seamless cuff that holds strong while maintaining an aerodynamic presence. And for further comfort, the entirety of the jersey has been constructed with four-needle flatlock stitched seams. For housing your ride essentials, the jersey features three rear cargo pockets and a zippered security pocket, as well.
