It used to be, when the mercury started to plummet, only the most die-hard cyclists would take to the indoors in order to maintain their strict cycling regiment.
However, the growing popularity of indoor training and virtual racing has prompted the boutique British apparel brand Le Col to partner with the maker of indoor trainers, Wahoo, to launch two new collections of indoor-specific cycling apparel.
Focussing on coolness and moisture management, the two most critical challenges of indoor cycling, Le Col and Wahoo selected only the very best lightweight fabrics in order to ensure superior comfort and perspiration control for their new Ride Real and Collection Edition apparel.
Both collections are made in Italy, and feature the company’s Pro Air jersey, sleeveless jersey, long sleeve warm-up jersey, bibshorts and cap, with the Collective Edition offering a more colorful design. Otherwise the fabrics, features and prices are the same for both the men’s and women’s version.
The Pro Air Jersey uses a 3D mesh fabric that’s designed to wick sweat away from your body. “Wearing this jersey will leave you feeling cooler than working out in bibshorts alone,” says Le Col.
The sleeveless jersey is made from a lightweight polyester/elastane fabric, along with a rectangular perforated structure designed to maximize airflow and dry fast. The jersey also has a full length zipper and a large rear pocket.
The Indoor Bibshort features laser-cut holes on the thighs in order to maximize ventilation, as well as a Dolomiti Pro Gel seatpad that’s been optimized for comfort.
Lastly, the Warm-Up Jersey has a brushed-back Lycra that’s designed to provide protection from cold air, which might come in handy if you’re training in the basement or garage, says Le Col.
