Lighter and better
The inspiration for this jersey came while riding Switzerland’s Flüela Pass between Davos and the Engadin Valley. The air is thin as you approach this 2383m pass, and I was pushing hard on a 230km ride. I could hear the winding engine of the supercar coming up the valley, and before it reached me I could actually feel the rumble as it approached redline. That Lamborghini Superleggera was a road-going version of Formula One technology, and this jersey represents the same concept. Here we are using technologies and know-how developed for the highest levels of pro racing, adapted into an extremely lightweight and aero road-going jersey. We’ve used bits of our 50g stretch woven fabric, our ultralight and ultra-wicking Futura 50g fabric on the front and sleeves, and a 3D mesh fabric liner on the back to support the pockets, and added a handy zippered key pocket for some creature comforts.
- Futura 50g main body fabric is lightweight with excellent moisture management
- Compression band in 90g stretch woven fabric keeps pockets in place
- Full-length front zipper with neck protection
- 3D mesh fabric insert in back to support pockets
- 3 open pockets plus reflective zippered key pocket
- Floating rear pocket design
- No-sew trim at sleeves and waist
