Giordana is in a constant state of forward evolution. Like a shark, it thrives off of progression and momentum, and every year, Giordana manages to outdo itself. The Trade FormaRed Carbon Custom Long Sleeve Jersey is no exception to this rule.
This year's FormaRed Carbon design incorporates a new fabric selection, Dual Fit Strong. Now, we know that you're probably used to seeing a veritable cornucopia of specifically-functioning materials in your Giordana jerseys, but Giordana knew that Dual Fit Strong is capable of singularly serving its purpose -- keeping you warm. As its name suggests, the fabric is strong, but what isn't delineated is its comfort. Dual Fit utilizes the new Reduced Point of Contact technology and Dual Weaving construction. Working in coordination, the two systems reduce the number of contact points between the jersey and the skin. This not only reduces the possibility of abrasion, but it creates an enhanced circulation of airflow for both insulation and ventilation. Further along these lines, the combination of the fabric's spiral-shaped weave pattern and an Interpower treatment powerfully wicks moisture away from the skin to the quick-drying surface. Basically, with a weighty outer-layer, staying dry is equivalent to staying warm.
The FormaRed Carbon jersey uses a multi-panel design that, when combined with the malleable fabric, provides a complete freedom of movement. However, to preserve the fit while moving, Giordana has included a silicone gripper on the rear waistband. The jersey features a tall collar and elongated wrist cuffs to provide protection from the elements and chill. FormaRed also has a full-length Camlock zipper with an AeroFix wind guard at the collar.
To house your ride essentials, Giordana gave the jersey three generous rear cargo pockets. For your more valuable possessions, there's a Camlock zippered security pocket that's been backed with Antigua to prevent moisture from infiltrating the pocket. And, not to forget your media devices, Giordana also included a hidden chest pocket with cable loops to route headphones out of the jersey. Finally, to enhance visibility in low-light conditions, Giordana incorporated reflective treatments throughout the jersey.
The Giordana Trade FormaRed Carbon Custom Long Sleeve Jersey is available in two designs and colors, Giordana Black/white and Pinarello Black/white/red. The jersey is also available in six sizes from Small to XXX-Large.
