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.

great jersey

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: large

This jersey really worked for me. It's all about fit; all the manufacturers make nice products; just have to find one that fits right. I'm 6 feet tall with a 39 inch chest and a size large fit perfect. A little breathing room but that's how I wanted it. I think this Forma Red line runs a little tight. Only wore it a couple times, but have been very pleased. The zipper is easy to work one handed while riding and the collar isn't too high. The zipper pouch is a nice touch for comfort. The fabric is soft and comfortable. For the price it's a real nice jersey. I've used it in temps in the high 50's with wind and seemed to be perfect. very soft and comfortable fabric next to the skin.

Comfortable and Warm

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I wear the long sleeved FormaRed jersey regularly on cold day. Extremely soft and comfortable fabric that is form fitting and doesn't flap in the wind. Perfect jersey for temps in the 50s to upper 40s (with a vest). I prefer this jersey for my longer rides because I forget that it is even there.

Its not the most stylish jersey out there but it performs the way I want it to. The zippered pocket is an added bonus for storing keys and other important items (like ID).

Beautiful Italian design and handmade in Italy quality.
I road this jersey for most of last winter, about 1500 miles and I personally never experienced the problems mentioned by Greg M. in his review. Your mileage may vary. I have a muscular trim body builder type physique and usually, the race fit FRC jerseys are way too tight and uncomfortable for me to wear. This jersey is the one exception. I wear this jersey with either a light weight short sleeve base layer or a Craft long sleeve base layer and the fit is very trim body hugging snug but not race fit uncomfortable tight. The fabric is soft, breathable and very comfortable for So. Calif. dry winter temps in the 50's to low 60's. With a light weight pack-able windproof jacket like the Sportful Ultra Light WS, I can ride in just about any weather conditions down into the mid 40's and I'm very comfortable. I've even worn this jersey comfortably in a light rain. I haven't experienced any problems with the fabrics or seams and the Giordana pockets hold there shape well. When it's time for long sleeve jerseys, I usually wear this Giordana FRC jersey or the Assos IJ Tiburu4.
FYI: 5'8.5" 161 lbs, 32" waist 41" chest. Wear size large in this jersey

Try something else

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Usually Giordana is one of my favorite mfg's for cycle products, not this one. The seams are large and bothersome and it binds under the arm pits. Tried it on and sent it back, my hope is this was just a one time anomaly.

I want everything in this fabric

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Perfect for a sunny 50 and change degree day. Pack a vest and you're golden. The fabric has a fantastic face, the zipper is quality and the fluo is bright. What more can you ask for?

Fit is definitely Euro- size up if you're used to american sizing.
