Cycle clothing round up

New threads from Morvelo/Tokyo Fixed, Endura, Stolen Goat and Meccanica

by Mat Brett   August 13, 2014  

Here's the lastest batch of new cycling clothing that has come our way recently.

New Tokyo Fixed + Morvelo collaboration

London’s Tokyo Fixed has just released new kit in collaboration with Morvelo with a full collection to come in the next few days

“This collaboration is in its second year working closely with Morvelo on the design,” said Tokyo Fixed brand manager Josh Greet.

“Taking elements of the original TMCC [Tokyo Morvelo Cycling Club] kit, we worked with some new logos and came up with a kit steeped in cycling heritage and traditional club design, but with modern flourishes and performance.

“We've kept the signature geometric pattern on the leg bands and on the jersey rear pockets for continuity. The bold TMCC graphic will leave no one having to guess what this kit is!”

The Tokyo Morvelo Classic Race Jersey is £59.99 while the Tokyo Morvello Classic Bib Shorts are £79.99.

The clothing is currently available through www.kinokocycles.com. We’re told that the new Tokyo Fixed site will launch at the end of the month with plenty of new content.

 

Stolen Goat’s Bodyline hits the streets

Stolen Goat have launched their own brand of distinctive cycling jerseys that will only be available through their online store.

The Bodyline range features eight designs, four of which are available in both male and female sizing.

Made in Belgium in partnership with Bioracer and priced at £60, the Bodyline jerseys are made from a four-way stretch fabric and feature half-length aero sleeves with a raw cut, seamless ends. As well as the three standard reinforced rear pockets, the Bodyline jerseys all come with a fourth zipped  pocket with a water resistant lining. You also get a full-length YKK camlock zipper and a neckline zip protector.

Over the coming months, Stolen Goat intend to grow the range to include shorts, jackets, accessories and winter wear.

For more info go to the Stolen Goat website

 

Meccanica's on and off-the-bike clothing

Meccanica was launched at the end of last year and all of the clothing is made in the UK.

They do several different T-shirt designs at £39.95, along with cycle-style polo shirts at £89.

They also do jeans with rainbow stripe details at £85.

The on-the-bike range includes merino jerseys. This Marl Casual Retro Cycling Jersey (above) is £120 while the long sleeve Stripe Casual Retro Cycling Jersey (below) is £130. They both come with quarter zips and three rear pockets.

We have a few items in for review on road.cc so stay tuned for those in the next few weeks.

Endura sneak peek

Endura promise that their spring/summer 2015 collection will include technical, high-performance road cycling pieces that feature trickle down technology developed for the Movistar Team.

They’ve given us a few pics but very little information so far.

This jersey (above) is called the Endura Equipe Classics Jacket...

...and here it is with arm warmers.

The Equipe Classics Jacket is currently available on the Endura website as a custom-printed option priced at £95 plus VAT, or £115 + VAT with arm warmers. 

It’s made from a high-stretch windproof fabric with a fleece-lined collar. The 2015 version shown here has an offset front zipper.

Endura are also introducing their Limited colour program. All the styles in the Limited range will be available in small numbers, for one season only, via pre-orders only.

For more from Endura go to www.endurasport.com

 

Pearl Izumi to open UK factory store

Pearl Izumi will open a factory outlet store this autumn in the South East of England, but we can’t tell you exactly where because they’re being all coy about it.

The store is a joint venture between Shimano, owners of Pearl Izumi, and Madison, the UK distributor.

We’ll give you a location and an opening date as soon as we have them. In the meantime, check out the range at www.pearlizumi.co.uk.

 

 

And one final thing...

A UK clothing brand that was hugely popular in the 1980s and 1990s is set to make a comeback this autumn. If you're a cyclist of a certain age, you might well have worn a pair of their shorts back when all this was still fields. We're sworn to secrecy at the moment but expect more news on 5 September.

Went to a pearl Izumi factory store in Orlando last year on holiday. There was loads of top range gear in there at decent prices.

Looking forward to one opening in my back yard soon. I really like the summer aero jersey I picked up for 50 dollars.

The Stolen Goat Lionheart?

They tweeted yesterday that it was selling very fast, by the time I read this article yesterday (not long after it was first posted) the medium was all out.

Loving the Lionheart jersey. Would match nicely with a Ritte frame.

Last night I would have considered trading a very loud baby for a really nice bike.

I was rather taken by the Lion Heart jersey, until I saw the back:

A little OTT IMO

What is 'four-way stretch fabric'?
As most fabrics are predominantly two dimensional then they stretch in only two dimensions, side-to-side and top-to-bottom.
As this stretches four ways does is increase in volume between the outer and inner surface and does it travel through time?

Did Nightrider 2013 and 2014 for Parkinson's UK. Might just have one last go in 2015.

It's like this sir ....

It stretches up.
It stretches across.
It stretches your credit card, considering it's a T shirt with a zip.
And the lion pattern stretches your credibility way beyond breaking point.

Good question. A 4-way stretch textile is one that has equal amounts of elasticity both crosswise and lengthwise. This offers maximum support and you typically find that bib shorts have a four way stretch fabric. Feel free to check the wiki definition of stretch fabric: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stretch_fabric
