2018 Buyer's Guide

Giordana FR-C

The Draw: Comfort and Versatility

This multi-paneled jersey hugs the torso and feels like a second skin. The body-hugging, sweat-wicking fabric kept us cool during a warm, midday ride and, when worn with a baselayer, offered enough warmth on a cool early-morning spin. The roomy rear pockets didn’t force any jersey sagging when weighed down with ride essentials. The FR-C bibs were some of the most comfortable we’ve ever worn. The feel in the saddle while wearing this pair is best described as uninhibited. The chamois felt sturdier than most, and the laser-cut bib straps were supportive without digging into the shoulders. This kit just feels classy and will boost your saddle swagger, too.

$200 Jersey; $250 Bibs (men’s)
