Giordana FormaRed Carbon Long Sleeve Men's Jersey $224.95
Actually, it is rocket science
There are jerseys, and then there are Giordana jerseys. And when staying warm dictates whether or not you're going to make it out for a ride, putting your faith in Giordana is the sound decision. With the new Giordana FormaRed Carbon Long Sleeve Jersey, you don't have to compromise race-day fit for warmth. Even better, the jersey is highly breathable, stretchable, and beyond comfortable. Stay warm and get riding.
To make the FormaRed Carbon a jersey that's both warm and breathable, Giordana constructed it from its new Dual Fit Strong fabric. This material employs what Giordana calls its Reduced Point of Contact technology. Sounds pretty self-explanatory, right? Well, you're kind of right. Like the name suggests, the fabric minimizes the points of contact between the skin and the jersey, but how this is achieved is the true magic. Dual Fit Strong uses a dual-weave for this reduction. On top of this, the fabric is spun into a spiral shape and given an Interpower treatment. Now for the explanation. The dual-weave is more open than typical weaves. It promotes elasticity and stretch while generating greater micro-circulation of air between the jersey and the skin. Additionally, the spiral shape funnels moisture away from the skin, so you stay dry and warm throughout heavy efforts. And needless to say, the less contact that your skin has with any material, the more that the possibility of abrasion and chafing are minimized.
For storage, Giordana covered all of the bases. The jersey comes equipped with three rear cargo pockets and zippered security pocket. There's also a hidden pocket for your media device that's been mated with internal routing for your headphones. For on-the-fly ventilation, the jacket has a full-length, reverse Camlock zipper. And to protect you from cold air infiltration, the jacket uses Aerofix at the tall collar and cuffs.
To heighten your visibility in low-light conditions, Giordana has included reflective accents throughout the jersey.
The Giordana FormaRed Carbon Long Sleeve Jersey is available in six sizes from Small to XXX-Large and in the colors Black/black, Red/black, and White/black.
