Pinarello -- an obvious legend, a continual innovator, and a true pillar of Italian cycling. It's only fitting that its likeness grace a fellow legendary Italian's jersey, the Giordana Trade FormaRed Carbon Pinarello Jersey. Starting with the bulk of the jersey's construction, Giordana went with its slightly compressive and incredibly soft Asteria 2.0 fabric. With a nylon/Lycra composition weight of 140g/m2, the FormaRed Carbon (FRC) jersey provides a high-level of muscle support, nearly approaching the medical compression level (240g/m2).

Why is this important Well, if you've worn compressive fabrics, you'll have notice that their heavy in comparison to traditional Lycra.

From there, the moisture rapidly evaporates at the surface due to the fabric's new treatment. However, with Asteria's breathability being coupled with the ultralight Micro-mesh panels at the underarms and inner-collar, thermo-regulation and core temperature are so well managed that your perspiration will greatly reduced.
