Giordana's FormaRed Carbon line represents the very best that the Italian manufacturer has to offer. Talk to any devoted follower, and the one thing that person is bound to preach about is the fit. FR-C clothes allow total freedom of movement while fitting like second skin--a feature attributed to many apparel items but only realized to the fullest extent in a select group. The FR-C Custom Jacket has that superior body-contouring fit, along with light, breathable fabrics that block out the elements while keeping you from overheating. And it's available in two bold graphic options. This all allows you to ride as if the miserable weather conditions around you are just a minor inconvenience on your way to getting the jump on next year's competition.
The two fabrics making up the majority of the FR-C Custom Jacket are HD44 and HD44 Light. 'HD' stands for high-density, and 44 represents the number of threads used in the yarn. That density increases the sweat-wicking capabilities of the fabric. Both HD44 and HD44 Light are three-layer fabrics that include a windblocking, but breathable, WindTex membrane and an inner layer of soft, sweat-wicking fleece that has both an antibacterial treatment and a Lycra component for added stretch. The outer surfaces of these fabrics receive a Durable Water Repellant (DWR) treatment for protection against rain. Giordana chose its soft, insulated, and shape-retaining Super Roubaix-Carbon fabric for the underarms, rear panel, pockets, cuffs, and inside the collar.
The FR-C Custom Jacket has an ergonomically shaped tall collar that seals out the elements but doesn't restrict your head movements. The full-length, locking zipper is concealed using Giordana's AeroFix guard, ensuring that you remain aerodynamic in the wind. There are seven pockets on the jacket: two zippered pockets on the chest that also serve ventilation duty, three rear cargo pockets, an added zippered pocket in back, and a hidden pocket at the chest with loops that allow you to route your headphones up through the collar.
Two reflective strips flank the rear center pocket so that you can be seen in low-light conditions. Light elastic at the cuffs and waist and a silicone gripper waistband keep the jacket's fit dialed.
The Giordana FormaRed Carbon Custom Jacket comes in sizes Small through 3XL and in two color options: Black/white with the Giordana centaur logo, and Black/white/red with a Pinarello-inspired design.
