Prendas Ciclismo has collaborated with Pro Cycling Trumps on a collection of T-shirts inspired by the colours of cycling’s biggest professional teams… and we reckon they’re very cool.
Let’s be honest, the stylishness of many cycling T-shirts is, um, questionable. We have to say, though, that these designs are a big hit in the road.cc office.

They’re all pretty abstract. The Groupama–FDJ T-shirt, for example, features the team’s blue, white and red colours (or blue, blanc, rouge, if you want to be all French about it) in a random criss-cross design.
The Astana T-shirt is a diamond design in team colours.
And the Ineos Grenadiers one will be recognisable to those who follow pro racing.
Each T-shirt features the UCI code for the relevant team: COF for Cofidis, BWB for Bingoal Pauwels Sauces WB (above), LIV for Liv Racing-Xstra, and so on.

There’s no other indication that the T-shirts are cycling related, although those in the know will get the association.
One particular favourite is the JVW design inspired by the Team Jumbo-Visma women's team colours. Very chic.
Oh, and the Lotto-Soudal one is neat too.
Anyway, head over to the Prendas website to see the lot. Men’s and women’s teams are included.
The T-shirts are made for 100% organic cotton (155g/m2) and are “printed in the UK in a renewable energy-powered factory”. They’re available for worldwide shipping at a price of £25 each.
Like all the best scams, it works because it is possible that it could be true and BC would do it.
