Unless your winter training finds you well above the 38th parallel, a heavy softshell jacket is rarely a more ideal alternative to thoughtful layering. The Giordana Fusion Jacket neatly fills that gap between excessive layers and a cumbersome jacket. It acts as a dependable staple for your wardrobe that offers plenty of cool-weather comfort without any of the bulk. Giordana constructed the Fusion Jacket from a blend of its Corsa and WindTex fabrics. The stretchy Corsa material makes up the majority of the jacket. Its shell is naturally insulating and abrasion-resistant, while the fabric's inner-lining features a soft, brushed microfleece that wicks away moisture and retains body heat. The jacket's side panels offer a touch more stretch to ease the fit and aid in dumping excess heat. A wind and waterproof WindTex membrane hides between the Corsa's layers on the front and rear of the jacket. The membrane keeps you protected on chilly descents, and ready for any surprise inclement weather while you're on the road. In addition to the membrane, a drop tail provides your backside with an extra bit of coverage from wheel spray. The Giordana Fusion Jacket is equipped with a full-length reversible zipper and an inner wind-blocking flap for the zip. Three rear pockets and an additional zippered security pocket provide plenty of room for storing your essentials. The jacket is offered in six sizes from Small to XXX-Large and in the colors Black or Blue.

I got a pair of the Hutchinson Fusion 3 700x25s from Velo Mine. I mounted them on my American Classic 2218 rims. The rims are 17.8mm inner width/22.2mm outer width. The tires measured 26.00mm width after about 2 hours inflated to 90psi.
I also measured my old/used Hutchinsons on the A/Cs.

Anyone know when these will become available? Since the Intensive 25c tires are actually narrower than the Fusion 23's I am hoping the Fusion 25's will be more true to size. I love my Secteurs but they have very little clearance in my rear triangle. TIA.Read More »
