The FR-C Pro Short Sleeve Doppio Tri Suit is inspired by the aero work done by professional road racers. The Doppio is a cross between a skin suit and separate jersey and shorts, taking the aerodynamics of the former and the comfort of the latter. The right sleeves are more aero than skin, so if you’re looking for speed, the Doppio is the ticket.

The suit is similar to the FR-C Pro Short Sleeve Tri Jersey and Tri Shorts, but the differences make it much greater than the sum of its parts. By sewing the top to the bottoms, the bottoms are held in place by the jersey wrapped around shoulders, helping keep the legs and chamois in place, no matter how wet you are, no matter how much you move around. By sewing the bottoms to the tops, the jersey is stretched for better aerodynamics and the pockets, when filled, can’t sag or move. By having the full zipper in front as well as the front not attached to the bottoms, it feels less binding when running or heeding the call of nature.

Another big benefit of the Doppio Suit is that all the top’s panels are made of High Speed Light Lycra. It’s woven with stripes that function as virtual ‘trip wires’ that improve the flow of air over your body.

The bottoms panels are woven into a medium-compression, abrasion-resistant Lycra Power and treated with a Durable Water Repellant (DWR) finish to minimize water absorption and maximize durability, especially when soaked in chlorinated water. 

As the right chamois can make all the difference in the world, Giordana offers a tri-specific option sewn into the bottoms via Tri-Stitch sewing for greater durability. 

Everything is secured to the body with contoured panels at waist, sleeve, and leg hems. The sleeves and legs have internal silicone tape to stick to skin without digging in. The 7.5cm Stay Put bands at the leg hems are wide to minimize pressure on the legs.

As with any good tri suit, the Doppio comes with lots of pockets. The jersey has two side-access mesh pockets in back that feature generous stretch. They can take stuff as small as gels, as large as a vest and warmers. The shorts feature two front pockets that are out of the way of your legs, but allow for easy storage for and access to bars and gels.

Exceptional fit and feel!

One of the best triathlon kits I've owned. I'm always looking for the perfect combination of freedom of movement for the swim, and that fitted feel of aerodynamic fabric on the bike. Most triathlon kits I've tried fall short in some aspect. The other thing is longevity of the kit. I wanted something that was going to last a race season and not stretch out a full size. The FR-C Pro Tri kit has checked all those boxes for me. It felt amazing right out of the box, and has held its fitted feel over many races and training sessions. Knowing how much the triathlon kit you choose can make or break your race experience I'm glad I went with Giordana.

Smooth two piece!

This two-piece suit is incredibly comfortable, lightweight and fast! The suit is also not too tight on the shoulders which makes the suit very comfortable to swim in.
