Given the fact that its frames have been ridden to four of the last five Tour victories, Pinarello's choice to name its top racing jersey the Tour Men's Jersey is an obvious reference to a certain French race in July. The jersey's design also speaks to the top levels of the sport, with Giordana ghost-writing the construction and taking out all the stops. The Tour is top-tier racing kit through-and-through, built to offer every possible advantage of fit, aerodynamics, and comfort on race day. It's also stylish, which should come as no surprise given the Italian pedigree of both companies, with understated, classic branding whose asymmetry adds an element of contemporary flair. The jersey's front, shoulders, arms, and cuffs are all made from Asteria 3. 0, a lightweight, high-stretch fabric that melts across your body for that painted-on, aerodynamic fit that defines racing jerseys. The rear panel is made of the more supportive Host Carbon, which is lightly ribbed to increase the material's surface area and make it better at wicking moisture. The added structural support also helps maintain the jersey's race fit on days when you're serving as your own support; Host Carbon prevents drooping pockets when your pockets are host to a collection of ride essentials. As a final nod toward racing, the front hem of the jersey is raised, which may entail gaps while milling about at the sign-in table but clicks into place when you mount-up, rewarding an aggressive drop and eliminating jersey bunching across the belly.
