Still the one.

Giordana's FormaRed Carbon Custom Women's Jersey has long been at the top of the pile for the brand's lady racing kit. While its dominance has been usurped by the new NX-G line, we're still pretty damned taken with how the FormaRed Carbon's understated, classy aesthetics mask its racing pedigree. It's also worth noting that every jersey is manufactured at Giordana's own facility in Italy, so quality is assured at every step from the design stages until the FormaRed Carbon is sent our ways.

Giordana describes the materials used as, simply, "premium level fabrics." While Giordana's isn't freely broadcasting the ins and outs of what "premium" entails, we can attest through first-hand experience that the material is light, breathable, and balances stretch and compression to maintain support throughout the torso without handicapping the jersey's race-minded fit.

Despite the brand's understandable reticence to disclose the secrets of its proprietary fabrics, Giordana is happy to crow about the BodyClone fit the materials are arranged in. The fabrics' mechanical properties also enable that fit by letting Giordana cut the jersey with an uncompromising, close to the skin fit. This reduces drag from flapping material, obviously, but it also keeps the fabric against the skin or base layer in order to facilitate wicking.

Of course, the FormaRed Carbon being a cycling jersey, it's designed to fit in the saddle, so don't expect slouchy t-shirt comfort while refilling bottles at a gas station. When you're stretched out in the drops, though, the FormaRed Carbon virtually disappears. Think of its shape as describing a curve similar to your upper body while cycling.

The shape is reinforced with Giordana's I-Panel construction, which maintains the shoulder shape and follows the spine down to the hem, bisecting the two pockets and contributing to the jersey's firm, not-going-anywhere fit. The arm cuffs are laser-cut and Thermo-fused, a process that eliminates the elastic cuff, bulky seam ridges, and blousy sleeves that we've all been stuck with for the past two decades because, frankly, we didn't know there was a better way. Stylized silicone grip at the hem keeps the jersey in place, and sculpting at the collar ensures that its soft, inner face is as accommodating to movement as it is gentle against the throat.
