Giordana Trade FRC Stars Jersey - Short Sleeve - Men's
Giordana Trade FRC Stars Jersey - Short Sleeve - Men's:
Complementing Giordana's FRC Trade bib shorts of the same name, the Trade Stars Jersey wears the same Italian fabrics and fit in a composition that looks just as smooth as it feels.
Starting with the bulk of the jersey's construction, Giordana went with its slightly compressive and incredibly soft Asteria 2.0 fabric. This material provides a high level of muscle support, though it doesn't quite approach the medical compression level. But this means your muscle groups still receive some assistance resisting road vibration and oscillation. Additionally, the material's threads per centimeter (TPC) is among the highest available on the market, meaning that, compared to most of the competition, the FRC is softer, more conforming, and has a higher level of wicking capability. And remarkably, Asteria 2.0 achieves this at a lighter weight than most Lycra blends.
For moisture management, Asteria 2.0 features a honeycomb knit construction that rapidly pulls moisture away from the skin. From there, the moisture evaporates at the surface due to the fabric's new treatment. However, with Asteria's breathability being coupled with the ultralight Micromesh panels at the underarms and inner-collar, thermo-regulation and core temperature are so well managed that your perspiration is greatly reduced. But, should you need to perform an on-the-fly heat dump, the jersey is equipped with a full-length zipper.
You're probably starting to wonder where the "carbon" is in FormaRed Carbon? Well, it's actually covering the back and side panels — Host Carbon to be exact. This material features a lightweight composition with a carbon fiber filament. With the carbon filament, material stretch becomes omnidirectional and controlled, but not just in the supportive sense. Basically, the carbon reinforces the honeycomb-knit Lycra, making it lighter, yet stronger, and allowing it to universally stretch in all directions, not just four-way.
Rounding out the construction is the most important feature of the jersey — its fit. FRC benefits from Giordana's innovative contoured cut. Essentially, the jersey has been created on a curve in order to clone your body in the cycling position. By doing this, abrasion is minimized, and fabric bunching and pinching is eliminated. To secure this position, Giordana incorporated its Aerofix arm cuffs and waistband. At the cuffs, the new Aerofix design uses a low-profile, seamless cuff that holds strong while maintaining an aerodynamic presence. And for further comfort, the entirety of the jersey has been constructed with four-needle flatlock stitched seams. For housing your ride essentials, the jersey features three rear cargo pockets and a zippered security pocket, as well.
The Giordana Trade FRC Stars Jersey is available in sizes Small to XXX-Large and in the colors White/red/black and Bob W/ti.
