Classy 100% wool jerseys in long and short sleeves available now!

We've been beavering away here at road.cc towers to sort out some lovely Merino wool tops for those of you that want to sport the argyle in a classy retro style. And they've finally landed!

Made by the excellent chaps from Woolistic, these two tops are 100% pre-shrunk Merino wool and they're a medium weight fabric that's ideal for UK conditions. Obviously you get all the excellent comfort, temperature regulation and anti-whiff benefits of pure wool, plus the tops are cut a bit looser than our race jersey so you can easily slip a base layer underneath when it starts to get a bit nippy out. That'll be now, then.

Up front you get a neck zip and a big embroidered road.cc logo, and round the back there's three pockets to stash your stuff in, with a small road.cc logo detail on the bottom. The argyle band – which Woolistic knitted specially for us – goes all the way round, and both jerseys have a blue highlight on the left cuff and a 'pedal powered' embroidered motif.

We've done a limited initial run of these jerseys, and we're offering them at an introductory price of £10 off - that means it's £89.99 for the short sleeve jersey and £94.99 for the long sleeve. To get your hands on one, head over to the road.cc shop. Of course they'll both complement a pair of road.cc socks very nicely, while you're there...
