Le Col has launched a 10th Anniversary Collection to celebrate Le Col Ambassador Sir Bradley Wiggins and his achievements.
According to the cycling apparel company’s… “The collection pays homage to the cycling legend and lives up to Wiggins’ unparalleled record as an Olympic athlete and Tour de France champion. Each of these two iconic designs represents elements of Wiggins’ 2012 “Golden Summer” .
For the collection, Bradley Wiggins and the Le Col team collaborated on the design and message behind the collection. This embodies the design features Wiggins won the Tour de France in Paris and his gold medal at the 2012 Olympics, both of which he won in 10 days.
The Le Col by Wiggins legend jersey celebrates Wiggins’ time-trial victory at the London 2012 Olympics as he raced to victory with a winning time of 50:39. The result is neatly contained in the back pocket.
“Combining design inspiration from classic jerseys with Wiggins’ personal heroes like Tom Simpson, this performance jersey looks as elegant during Gran Fondo as it does on a Sunday coffee shop ride.”
The 2012 jersey championship commemorates an epic year for Wiggins. Including his impressive performances in the Tour de France, the year he became the first rider to win the Paris-Nice, Tour de Romante and Dauphin Criteria in the same season. The jersey includes subtle details such as the Wiggins Tour number 101 on the back pocket.
Both jerseys feature the Hors category and are woven from lightweight, soft-touch four-way stretch fabric that provides breathability and freedom of movement on long rides. They are also available in Sport specs, which feature a slightly looser fit, perfect for different riding styles. Each jersey is available in both men’s and women’s sizes.
The collection also includes an optional cycling cap in white and navy to match the corresponding jersey. Cycling socks are also featured, again in white and navy options to match the jersey. The socks use a technical honeycomb structure to increase breathability, compression and comfort. High wicking and durable polyamide yarns ensure durability.
