Victoria’s pick of the coolest women’s cycling jerseys:
The sun is out and the mercury is rising. All I can think about is getting out on my bike in the coolest women’s cycling jerseys of 2016. The Vamper.cc kit is, of course, our favourite – more about that here! – but that’s not to say there aren’t a lot of cool kits out there this season. Here’s my pick of the bunch…
Feel free to share your objects of desire in the comments, or tell us on Twitter what you’re lusting over.
Attaquer – Core Brush Women’s Cycling Jersey
The Attaquer Core Brush jersey in teal is vibrant and summery and bold and beautiful. We like the colour and the subtle fade of this graffiti-esque women’s cycle jersey, and from what we’ve seen of Attaquer kit, we’d expect the fabric to be top notch too.
AUS$179.95 – From Attaquer
MAAP – Arrows Women’s Cycling Jersey
The Aussies really know how to do cool cycle kits. Maap’s Arrows women’s cycle jersey is sharp: we like both colourways, but the navy and coral really floats our boat. Properly cool.
AUS$180.00 – From MAAP
Twin Six – The Artcrank Women’s Cycling Jersey
What’s black and white and red all over? The Artcrank women’s cycle jersey from Twin Six. This is not a jersey for the faint hearted, but we think it’s pretty fabulous. A whole peloton in this design might be migraine-inducing, for a solo cyclist, we think this rocks.
US$85.00 – From Twin Six
Giro – Chrono Pro Women’s Cycling Jersey
We adore the nebular print of this Giro women’s cycle jersey. What can we say? It’s out of this world. Understated, chic and unusual.
£139.99 – By Giro, from Wiggle
Stolen Goat – Momentum Women’s Cycling Jersey
“Moving effortlessly from one colour to another, this jersey represents our freedom of movement on the bike.” – Well. We’re not sure about that, but we do like the trendy ombre-effect and the bold shades of this women’s cycle jersey from Stolen Goat. Very smart indeed.
£60.00 – From Stolen Goat
Matt’s pick of the coolest men’s cycling jerseys:
Velobici – Verne (Cannon Grey)
This lightweight short-sleeved three-season number from Leicestershire’s own Velobici had us drooling from the outset. A great colour combination with technical detailing to match, its sartorial credentials are firmly at the forefront. Those in the know will be able to spot your finery from afar and will duly admire.
£150 – From Velobici
Attaquer – GiroXAttaquer
Is there any brand on top of their game like Attaquer are right now? If so, we would love to see them. With exquisite collaborations in conjunction with G!ro and Dosnoventa as well as a riotous range of cool cycling jerseys for both men and women, we’d sell our grannies* for pretty much everything they purvey.
*ok, not our grannies. But perhaps our souls.
£89.95 – From Giro Cycles
La Passione – Summer Diagonal Jersey (Blue)
A return to true classic lines and hues, this summer offering from La Passione hits the mark in delivering bold shades in a powerful yet understated way. Showy but without bling, this jersey let others know that you know your onions…
£54 – From La Passione
Rapha.cc – Classic Jersey (Black)
Sometimes it just has to be black, the unmistakable silhouette that sets off just about any bike. Rapha have nailed it with the Core. The subtle injection of contrast with the white and pink elements are understated and cool. A collection to remind you of the timelessness of cycling.
£110 – From Rapha.cc
Hunter Bros – Butterfly Jersey
If you can allay your vehement dislike of flying insects for more than a few hours (yes, Matt – you!) this punchy number from Antipodean apparel artistes Hunter Bros will have you soaring above the crowd. Tell me you see beautiful kit like this in Richmond Park. Go on, tell me. You can’t, can you? Because you don’t. Let’s bring some style from Down Under to London.
AUS$155 – From Hunter Bros
