Item # GIO0258
Keep the team and your sponsor happy.
When you want a sleek race jersey that doesn't represent a team, turn to the Giordana FormaRed Carbon Custom Short-Sleeve Jersey. FR-C is Giordana speak for FormaRed-Carbon, the top of the line gear. This takes all of the innovations that Giordana learned from working with pro bike racers and put the results in a form-fitting women's jersey. The fit is based on Giordana's Contour Fit design.
The jersey might look like it's all cut from the same fabric, but it's really a symphony of materials. The front panels, sleeves, collar, and pockets are made from Giordana's Asteria fabric. Light, stretchy, wicking, Think jersey comfort mixed with skinsuit fit. The side and back panels are made from Host Carbon, a limited stretch material that is oriented to stretch more horizontally than vertically for better anchoring of pockets. The outsides of the sleeves and the front of the waist hem are made from Aerofix grippers, with the wide bands holding in place gently, but staying put. There are micro mesh panels under the arms for extra venting.
All of the fabrics are sewn together via flatlock stitching for a durable, secure, chafe-free fit. Extra features include a silicone-injected gripper running under the back waist hem, three pockets with a fourth zip pocket on the right side, a reverse cam-lock full-length zipper that even sports a zipper garage at the bottom to eliminate any pilling and pulling that a zipper end can create. There's a reflective tab on the left side of the left pocket.
The Giordana FormaRed Carbon Custom Short-Sleeve Jersey comes in three color schemes. Black/Blue, Black/Pink, and White/Purple. Sizes run from X-Small to X-Large.
Pro-style body-clone fit eliminates drag-producing wrinkles
Ultralight, moisture-wicking Asteria fabric allows omnidirectional stretch for an optimal fit
Host Carbon fabric, used in the rear panels, limits vertical stretch to limit sagging when the pockets are loaded
Host Carbon fabric also helps slow the onset of muscle fatigue and repels electronic interference from power lines and cell phone towers that can hinder performance
Aerofix Gripper System (Ametista fabric backed with Antigua) holds the jersey in place with a seamless feel
Underarm micro-mesh insert and perforated mesh shoulder panels allow maximum breathability
Back logo branded elastic with silicone gripper beads prevents the jersey from riding up
Three rear pockets and a fourth back zippered pouch provide plenty of room for you to stash your energy bars or goo
Body Clone (ultra-slim)
Note: Giordana cycling apparel has a tight fit, do not expect a baggy or roomy fit.

Giordana FormaRed Carbon Custom Short Sleeve Women's Jersey
Finally got my jersey (on sale!), can only chime in and say that it fits great! Was also a little worried about that "sausage" fit, but no problems at all! Got the White/purple, love it (and yes, wear a nude bra!). Great buy! Can't wait for warmer weather here; for now will still have to wear a jacket over top, but can tell I will be very comfortable...as is usual for the G-line! UP-DATE: FINALLY, a nice hot day to test this out & 5+ for this jersey: even with a fully loaded hydration pack, all perspiration quickly wicked away; and when stopped for a short break, the one spot under the pack that touched my back and was a bit sweaty, almost immediatly was gone! So breezy and comfy. Only thing, the tag scratched, was wishing I had a pair of scissors on board! It got clipped at home!
When my beloved pair of Castelli bibs blew a seam on a ride (luckily I noticed it when I got home and didn't have to deal with the knowledge that I was riding home with a slash of my butt cheek exposed) I decided to give the FRC bibs a try and splurged on the matching jersey. I have been more than pleasantly surprised. Even straight out of the packaging I was impressed with the workmanship and quality of the material. The jersey is ridiculously comfortable with a close fit but doesn't make me feel like a human sausage. The material feels and works great while looking sharp as well. At half price, it's a bargain to get a matching, quality kit.
Note: I have the Black/White Arco and the white is pretty transparent although it is placed appropriately. I don't have any crazy patterned sports bras or tattoos, but if I did, you would definitely be able to see them.
I returned this product before using it
My wife loved this jersey. It is very light and comfortable with great pockets. The only bummer was that it runs a little shorter/smaller than usual. My wife is taller, so the typical medium she wears was too short. We returned it for the next size up which worked perfectly.
I really wanted the bibs but was little skeptical about the jersey mainly because of the price and then the pattern. But i just gave it a try to have the whole RFC look. And that was the great choice. This jersey is awesome. It feels great, so comfortable while still giving the compresseion effect. Also it kept me dry the whole time i didnt even realize that i sweated that much until i took it off and saw the back where there was the trail of my sweat line.
Three compartment pockets on the back as well as a zippered pocket that fits id, creedit card, etc
Bought this and the bib to go with it. Like the jersey so much, I got two other Giordana FormaRed Carbon jerseys even though they are quite pricey. I returned a few CapoForma and Castelli jerseys and a Sugoi bib, because nothing compared to the touch, feel nor the fit of this jersey and its matching bib. It really does feel like second skin. And after my first 50 mile ride in 80+ temps, I can attest its performance was awesome. Sweat was wicked away immediately, and it does not bulk up anywhere! I love the pink, black and white color combination. I only wish there were other colors available with matching and colored bibs available baby blues, greens, yellows, etc.
