Pissei turns yellow for the Tour de France

The Italian cycling apparel brand have unveiled some special edition kit ahead of Le Tour, which they say brings "Pissei style and quality" to fans of the big race...

Pissei have unveiled two yellow-themed jerseys to commemorate this year's Tour de France, including a new version of their eccentric Cartoon print and the super light Hors Categorie.

The Cartoon print was first made in Giro-pink back in May, and although we've no idea what the link is between superheroes/cartoon characters and Grand Tours, it will certainly get folk talking. It has a regular fit that's suitable for all shapes and sizes, with a soft and breathable back panel to make it spot on for hot summer riding plus laser-cut sleeves and grippers for added comfort.

A splash of Pissei yellow has also been added to the Hors Categorie jersey, and this one is made with an ultralight and highly technical fabric. Pissei's 'Dry Net' material on the front wicks away sweat, and it's also aerodynamically refined with a 'chronosuit' collar. It weighs just 130g.   

The Cartoon jersey is priced at €79.90, and the Hors Categorie is €109.90; while Pissei's Logo bibshorts that they recommend pairing with the jerseys come in at €99.90.    ​

Arriving at road.cc in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of road.cc in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.

    I wasn't expecting much from a bike designed by Wiggins but this has exceeded all my expectations in how tasteless a bike can be. Absolutely gopping.

    I dunno about the US but I understand Australian experience is that helmets may protect your head but that might not solve the problem.
