The Spring Classics are here. Having started with Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and running until Liege-Bastogne-Liege in late April, they’ll be keeping Movistar Team and Bigla, our partners in the WorldTour and Women’s WorldTour, busy with a mix of Monuments, Classics and semi-Classics. Featuring iconic climbs, cobbled sectors, bergs and helligen, they offer a variety of racing with one thing in common – northern Europe’s often variable weather.
As masters of foul weather riding gear, we’ve developed a wide range of kits for our pros, which then feeds directly into our flagship Pro SL road range, tweaked with the benefit of feedback from the bunch. We often find that kit goes the other way too after fit sessions, garments developed for you are picked up and adopted for use in the peloton.
Take a peak into Movistar Team and Bigla’s kit bags to see five key bits of kit that keep our riders as comfortable as you can be whilst traversing the cobbles in pouring rain.
Pro SL Classics
The Pro SL Classics Jersey can trace it’s lineage straight to the Spring Classics of the WorldTour. Developed for Movistar Team and Bigla to race in during the northern Classics, which often play out in wet and cold conditions, we’ve refined it to produce the finest garment for hard riding in foul weather.
Pro SL Thermal Windproof Jacket
For sign-on duties and early on in a race, the Pro SL Thermal Windproof keeps our skinny pros toasty before the action kicks off at KM0. It makes the perfect as a deep winter training jacket too with a high stretch, windproof fabric and thermal lining on front, sleeves and center back, plus a high cut, double layer collar for warmth and comfort.
Pro SL Shell Jacket
Race shells have come a long way since the days of translucent, boil-in-the-bag capes and our Pro SL Shell Jacket makes use of our proprietary ExoShell 40 fabric ExoShell40™ that delivers a formidable combination of minimal pack size, immense breathability and high durability. It’s the first bit of kit into our rider’s wet weather bags.
Pro SL PrimaLoft® Gilet
The Pro SL PrimaLoft® Gilet is one of those items that we took along to training camp fit sessions that for riders to try out for training that’s become a staple for racing too. Lightweight, windproof shell panels with PrimaLoft® GOLD insulation provides protection for the core, with a tiny pack size so it can be stashed in pocket before being handed back to the team car as the attacks fly in.
Pro SL Helmet
One for Bigla’s riders only - you might have noticed our striking custom Pro SL Helmets already this season. Fully customised to match Bigla’s striking new kit and Chapter bikes, we’ve brought our game changing deployment of Koroyd to the pro peloton for the first time in 2019. Pro SL Helmets are helping to literally redefine safety limits.
