GIORDANA MEN'S JERSEYS - SHORT SLEEVE
Nestled in the heart of the Wasatch range, and right here in our own backyard is Little Cottonwood Canyon. A haven for outdoor activity like climbing, hiking, and mountain biking, it's also a world-class proving ground for road cycling that has been the deciding chapter of many a queen stage in the Tour of Utah. In fact, there is really nothing little about Little Cottonwood, as the brutal road gains nearly 3500 vertical feet in just over 8 miles while averaging a grade of 9.2%. It shares a very similar altitude profile with another world-famous climb: the Alpe D' Huez, which separates the wheat from the chaff in the closing moments of the Tour de France. And thus, Giordana presents the Little Cottonwood Jersey -- a fitting tribute and essential piece of gear designed to deliver every advantage you'll need to conquer the steepest roads in the world.
The speed advantage comes from the second-skin-like fit and fabrics that stretch with your body. Giordana employs Asteria fabric for most of the jersey. It's a light, soft honeycomb knit that is 86% poly and 14% spandex. As that duo suggests, stretches well, and wicks exceptionally efficiently under the warmest afternoon heat. The panels are joined with flatlock stitching so they're smooth against the skin and durable for years of use. The cuff and waist have a sandwich of Ametista and Antigua fabrics to keep the cuffs against your body while providing wicking comfort, with the Ametista woven with carbon threads in the mix for anti-bacterial and anti-static properties.
The Giordana Little Cottonwood Jersey has a reversed full zipper with a CamLock pull so the zip will move freely when you want it to and stay put when you need it to. There are three rear pockets, with a fourth zip pocket on the right side pocket that features a vertical zipper to make it easier to get inside this pocket while riding. It comes in Black, and in sizes Small to XX-Large.
