Le Col – Pro Collection: Spring-Summer 2016

Le Col: superb cycling apparel, 'imagined on the road', manufactured in Italy.

Le Col do things differently. The brainchild of Yanto Barker, they represent a step forward in the world of cycling apparel. Each garment concept is rigorously tested by Yanto - himself a professional cyclist - who is all too familiar with the wide-ranging kit required in the peloton and, indeed, when living and cycling in the UK.The Pro Collection is Le Col’s longest-running and has been perfected over a number of years, with a great deal of time spent on optimising pieces to be functional, comfortable and durable. Working on the premise that ‘a well-considered and designed piece of clothing will perform exceptionally well whether you ride gently for half an hour, or punish yourself on week-long stage races’, the range is sure to offer something for cyclists of all disciplines and experiences. The Pro Collection is a beautiful example of quality meeting function and style, and features many items: from the ultra-warm B5 Winter Jacket and complimenting tights and skull cap, to the superb Event Rain Jacket and much-hailed ‘Thermal’ pieces.

However, with warmer weather (hopefully) on the horizon, a great deal is now being said about Le Col’s new Spring-Summer 2016 Range. New colourways and timeless designs ensure Le Col stands out from rivals in a rapidly expanding and, some might say, saturated marketplace.

Using the Pro Collection’s standard open-weave Meryl Microfibre, garments are slow to absorb and are excellent in the transfer of moisture. They also feature flat-locked seams and oversized ‘gummy’ panels for improved comfort. Jerseys incorporate full-length zips (with zip guard) and large rear storage pockets, with the addition of a zipped waterproof pocket for valuables. Ergonomically-designed collars also ensure a better fit, with nice touches coming in the form of a headphone port, reflective striping and tabs, and lazer-cut sleeves. Complementing the jerseys, Pro Bib Shorts– the longest-standing item in the range – feature Lycra Sport Fibre, which is engineered to ‘provide exceptional recovery power, fit and freedom of movement’.They also maintain the ‘made in Italy’ claim by offering a trusted Dolomiti pad. As with other items in the range, strategically-positioned reflective tabs and pipingensure rider visibility in changeable and lower light conditions. Embroidered branding throughout the range gives a feel of quality that is often hard to come by nowadays, and is a feature Le Col are proud to offer.

Le Col is driven by Yanto’s desire to bring the attitude and approach from his sport into the business. His personal input and critical eye on all aspects of Le Col products and service sets the brand apart and ensures that you’re buying tried and tested kit that will last.

Le Col Summer range is now available at York Cycleworks
