Giordana Silverline Women's Jersey $119.95
Faster than a speeding bullet, or at least more comfortable.
The Giordana Silverline Women's Jersey so closely parallels the Laser that it's difficult to draw the differences with the naked eye. You get the same main fabric as with the Laser, only drawing a compromise at the sleeves and the waistband. However, the high level of comfort remains, and with Giordana's Women's Contour fit system, the Silverline jumps leaps and bounds over jerseys twice its price.
Comprising the bulk of the construction is Giordana's newest material, MicroPhase. And although this fabric wasn't developed exclusively by Giordana, it did commission a proprietary alteration to the prior iteration's structure and composition. Now, the material expresses a more compressive characteristics and is a far more effective moisture manager. It features a fabric weight hovers around 135g/m2, which doesn't perform as much blood flow promotion as a 220 denier compression piece, but it does limit the negative effects of road vibration and muscle oscillation from shocks. Another change to the original MicroPhase composition includes an increased incorporation of polyester microfiber and a shift in fiber positioning in relation to the skin. Now, the fabric is far more breathable, and by placing less absorbent fibers next to the skin and more absorbent fibers at the outside, MicroPhase works like a two-filament corkscrew, moisture is quickly pulled away for rapid absorption.
Rounding out the construction is the most important feature of the jersey, its fit. Lazer benefits from Giordana's innovative Women's Contour fit. Essentially, the jersey has been created on an anatomic curve in order to clone the 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 LoPro 45 arm bands at the arm cuffs and a supple elastic at the waistband. At the cuffs, this design uses a low-profile, seamless cuff that holds strong while maintaining an aerodynamic presence. And for further comfort, the entirety of the jersey have been constructed with four-needle flatlock stitched seams.
For storage of your ride essentials, Giordana has included three ample rear cargo pockets. And to increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions, the jersey also features a reflective accents throughout its construction.
The Giordana Silverline Jersey is available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the colors Black, Blue, Green, Orange, Pink, and Purple.
Note: Giordana cycling apparel has a tight fit, do not expect a baggy or roomy fit.

Comfy, functional, and looks good. I am very happy with this item and get lots of complements as well. Fabric is light--it is a summer item tho it can be worn with an under-layer.
