The lightweight 16-panel FR-C Pro is the same jersey used by the pro teams that Giordana supplies its wares to. It has an aerodynamic second skin-like fit without feeling restrictive thanks to four-way stretch microfibre blend fabric, which is not only soft but does an amazing job of wicking when the mercury begins to rise.
Giordana uses a two-way stretch panel on the rear, which sits well while supporting the pockets. This helps to reduce sagging when the pockets are fully loaded on long rides and the pockets are perfectly located for easy on the fly access too.
I liked the longer length arms and wide laser-cut cuffs that sit well no matter how long you’re in the saddle.
There’s a range of cool looking colours that are subtly used, so you can blend in without looking too pro team.
For race duties the Giordana FR-C Pro jersey is up there with the best, but has a relatively modest price tag when its quality and performance are considered.
