When you want only the best.
The Trade collection is the latest addition to the Giordana apparel line. It features the fit and fabrics previously found only in the top-tier Giordana FRC line, in a collection suited for the rider who values durability and value alongside the best materials available. The Trade Flash FRC Jersey is designed for the discriminating female rider, as it was made just for women with all the features of the professional-level men's kits.
The Flash's main body is constructed from the slightly compressive Asteria fabric. Its nylon/Lycra composition provides a high level of muscle support that helps to resist road vibration. If you've ever ridden rough roads for extended periods, you know that muscle oscillation causes fatigue and doesn't make for a pleasant ride. The fabric also has a high level of wicking capability. This is accomplished by a honeycomb knit construction that rapidly pulls moisture away from the skin. From the surface of the fabric, moisture then evaporates to keep you dry. To aid in moisture management, Giordana added Micromesh panels at the underarms and inner collar. This greatly reduces perspiration and the need for wicking capabilities, but should you need to make a heat dump during a blazing climb, the Flash is equipped with a full-length camlock zipper. So where is the "carbon" in the FRC? Well it is Host Carbon that covers the side and back panels of the jersey. Carbon fiber filaments added to the fabric create omni-directional stretch in the honeycomb knit and make it lighter and stronger.
Now the Trade Flash FRC jersey is not merely a men's jersey that's been shrunken to "fit" a woman's frame. Giordana touts its innovative contoured cut as a marker of its jerseys and the Flash in no exception. Essentially, the jersey has been cut on a curve in order to mimic the shape of your body while in the riding position. Because this fit is used, abrasion, fabric bunching, and pinching are eliminated. In order to secure the jersey in this position, Giordana uses Aerofix arm cuffs and waistband. The entire jersey has been flatlock stitched, and three back pockets and one zippered security pocket hold your riding essentials.
The Giordana Trade Flash FRC Jersey - Women's is available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the colors Italia/blue/white and Italia/black/white.

This jersey is a bit short but kept it because I like the graphics and fit elsewhere

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
...Ive been wearing it for 4 years.
Im a small but curvy girl. 5'3" 128lbs (translation - 163cm/56kg)
The cut, fit and comfort of the Carbon Trade line is second to none in my opinion when compared with value for money, quality fabrics, great washability (non staining whites). Long Lasting. Love the Jersey and the Bibs. I did much prefer the silky smooth front fabric on the jersey over this seasons full venting fabric. ( 2 laser jerseys, 2 carbon shorts and laser shorts, prior to my 3 kits one per year over the last 3, I still wear my kits rode riding and wear the others on my trainer or if I hit the dirt. .
