Primal goes back to the 1980s with limited edition cycling jersey

Mind your eyes! Primal releases new 1980s inspired jersey and socks

British company Primal has gone back to the 1980s for inspiration for its latest limited edition jersey, the £50 Wuz-Zappenin.

“Our designers have been inspired by the outrageous shapes, colours and floppy disk generated fun from the era of big hair, big style and even bigger cell phones,” says the company.

“We personally love the new retro clothing and hope to see more people that aren’t afraid to show off some personality in the peloton.” 

The bold and colourful clothing is a new limited edition range and features the Wuz-Zappenin jersey (pictured above) and matching Get in Shape and Knock Out socks.

The Wuz-Zappenin jersey costs £50 and is made from a SpeedPro fabric which is designed to be breathable and keep you dry cycling/throwing shapes in hot weather. It’s available in six sizes. It also has an SPF 35 treatment. 

The fit is based on the shape and cut of one of Primal’s Sport Cut Jerseys, a bit more relaxed than a race jersey. There are raglan sleeves, three rear pockets and a full-length YKK zipper.
