The Giordana Brasstown Jersey is named after the notorious Brasstown Bald climb positioned just before a summit finish on the queen stage of the Tour of Georgia. It's an uncompromising moment in the race where GC pretenders are quickly swept from the podium contenders -- a fitting likening to the jersey. Constructed with Giordana's award-winning FormaRed Carbon template, the Brasstown Jersey delivers superior moisture transfer and a sublime fit designed to save you watts -- energy better used to decimate the field on that final climb.The speed advantage comes from the second-skin-like fit and fabrics that stretch with your body. Giordana employs Asteria fabric for most of the jersey. It's a light, soft honeycomb knit that is 86% poly and 14% spandex. As that info suggests, it wicks well and stretches well. The panels are joined with flatlock stitching so they're smooth against the skin and durable for years of use. The cuff and waist have a sandwich of Ametista and Antigua fabrics to keep the cuffs against your body while providing wicking comfort, with the Ametista woven with carbon threads in the mix for anti-bacterial and anti-static properties.The Giordana Brasstown Jersey has a reversed full zipper with a CamLock pull so the zip will move freely when you want it to and stay put when you need it to. There are three rear pockets, with a fourth zip pocket on the right side pocket that features a vertical zipper to make it easier to get inside this pocket while riding. Choose between Red or Blue, and in sizes Small to XX-Large.

Can I ride it the full 3.1 miles or not? Somewhat confused by this comment. Yes I'm aware its steep, evil etc. I'm 53 rides into the ... Read More »

I live in N. GA. and have ridden most of the mountains in the TDG. According to VeloNews most of the guys were using a 28 in the rear....I don't feel so bad now. :)
