Rocking giant sponsorships all over your jersey is cool if you're, you know, sponsored, but what's the point in being a rolling billboard if you're not getting anything out of it' Flying sponsor-free isn't exactly the point of the Giordana FormaRed Carbon Custom Women's Jersey, but it is a pretty sweet side benefit. The real money makers, though, are the fabric and design, which combine to support your muscles, keep you cool and dry, and help you slice through the air like an infomercial knife through a frozen rack of ribs, which is to say, easily. The majority of the FormaRed is constructed from Giordana's Asteria 2. 0 fabric, an incredibly soft, light, and compressive blend of nylon and Lycra. It manages, all at once, to reduce fatigue by supporting your muscles, increase blood flow to your extremities, and wick moisture away from your skin like lightning. Asteria's super-secret blend is extra light, too, so you receive the benefits of compression and support without the weight penalty of traditional compression gear, and it has a honeycomb knit, mesh underarms, and locking front zip that speed moisture transfer and evaporation. Don't get thrown by the "Carbon" in the jersey, either. Yes, it's actually there in the Host Carbon side panels, and its primary function is to boost stretch and compressive fit. Fit is the final pillar of the FormaRed. It's built with Giordana's contoured cut, which is patterned on a body in an aggressive cycling position. This reduces irritation, eliminates loos fabric, and banishes pinching. Aerofix grippers at the sleeves and hem keep the FormaRed from riding up and increase its aerodynamic efficiency, while four back pockets provide plenty of gear storage.
