Giordana’s FR-C Pro base layer is the gear of the day at the PELOTON Service Course. This three-season base layer enhances any ride by promptly wicking away sweat and moisture to aid temperature regulation, allowing you to perform at your peak wherever the road takes you.


A tight race fit ensures this base layer molds to your body for maximum moisture wicking, but does so comfortably thanks to a soft and highly breathable microfiber fabric. During the hottest days when sweat streams out of your body as fast as you can replace it, this moisture managing fabric will be ready to fight off odors. This same fabric also helps make this the lightest base layer ever from the Italian company. Tipping the scales at as little as 65 grams, the fully sublimated FR-C Pro base layer will disappear on your body. Minimal weight does not mean this is a delicate garment, however. It remains durable despite the high amount of built-in stretch–ready to be worn again and again.

Giordana designed the FR-C as an ideal summer base that is versatile enough to take on the cooler spring and fall months. It will quickly become your essential, go-to base layer for most of the year save for the coldest winter months.

This base layer is available in two options: tank top and short sleeve, both of which have a unique, camo pattern. Both the tank and short sleeve version come in unisex sizing. Be sure to choose your normal jersey size, or even one size smaller, to get the fit that will perform best at wicking away moisture and keep you performing at your best for longer.

$90 (tank top), $110 (short sleeve);
