The FormaRed Carbon is a top offering from Giordana's jersey range. This lightweight and low volume wonder is considered by many as the best summer jersey ever produced. Purpose-built high-thread count fabrics are both technical and soft. With an eye on fashion, the Forma Red is produced in a beautiful yet simple style that is decidedly Italian.
The main textile used here is Giordana'a proprietary Asteria 2.0. It's 130 gram weight, high-thread count fabric which offers a light, aerodynamic and comfortable fit. And by high thread count, we mean just that. The whopping 44 thread per centimeter tread count give the FormaRed Carbon a highly elevated wicking capacity with a supple and soft touch. The back panel and its flanking panels are constructed of Host Carbon (the source of the jerseys partial namesake). This highly vented, all way stretch fabric offers some structure to the jersey and helps mute electrical charges in the atmosphere that are a source of fatigue. Like Asteria, these panels of Host Carbon are 50+ UV protected and have strong antimicrobial properties.
Other salient features include a full length YKK Camlock zipper which is the final word on body temp regulation. It is reliable, durable and the one finger action is flawless in it's execution. The back of the jersey has three standard storage pockets and a center zip security pocket for on-board storage. This zippered pocket's zipper has a reflective cover for some added safety through visibility. Superlight, highly functional with anatomic-patterned fit, the FormaRed is a staff fave and a go-to piece when the temp rises.
