Range architecture

On Friday 1st March, we'll be launching our brand new summer collection. Before we do, here's what you need to know about our 'Range Architecture'.

Whether you ride far, hot, high or fast, you can rest assured that at least one kit from our SS19 collection will be right for you.

ICON

The Icon kit is a perfect blend of quality and performance, designed for year-round, long lasting comfort.

With the arrival of spring, comes the option of long, beautiful days in the saddle. But let's be honest, you won't see the beautiful if you're uncomfortable. If you're going the distance, comfort is key! That's where our ICON kit comes in.

The jersey and bib shorts are built with a combination of 37.5® fabric and mesh, which help to regulate core body temperature by keeping perspiration away from the skin and thus, enabling a better performance, for longer.

The 4-way stretch of the jersey and linear structured knit fabric of the bib shorts, provide unparalleled comfort due to maximum flexibility. The specifically cut ergonomic line across the shoulders of the jersey serves a similar purpose, limiting restriction once in the riding position

Wide elasticated bands on the legs and sleeves eliminate pressure points and keep them securely in place, because if you're riding for hours on end, the last thing you want is to be constantly adjusting your kit. For the same reason, the Icon Bib shorts are designed with 3D Body Fit suspenders, to hold everything in place, without digging in.

Then, of course, there's the pad. When you're riding for long hours, there is no denying the importance of having good protection between your legs. On big ride days, the TM Evo pad built into the Icon Bib shorts will keep your bits happy.

Last but by no means least, spend less time worrying and more time enjoying, by keeping yourself and your stuff, safe. Reflective details will keep you visible if you're starting early or finishing late and the zipped back pocket will keep hold of your valuables.

Every detail of the ICON kit, from the design and construction, to the fabrics and pad, has been carefully thought-out to ensure a riders comfort through long days in the saddle.

SUPERLIGHT

The SUPERLIGHT kit is built with the latest fabric technologies, designed to keep you cool and dry during hot summer rides.

As spring turns to summer and the hot days draw in, the priority turns to keeping your body cool. That's why we've constructed the Superlight kit from a highly breathable mix of 37.5® superlight mesh and regular mesh, which helps to maintain your core body temperature at optimum level during exercise, thus waisting less energy on cooling yourself down and instead allowing your energy to be used almost entirely on going faster.

The Superlight kit features mesh elasticated bands on the arms and legs, to keep it securely in place but also breathable. For the same reason, its suspenders are cut from one piece of fabric and lazer cut with ventilation holes.

The bib shorts include the TM ARMADILLO pad, which is, predictably, still highly protective but lighter than the TM Evo. Because even your bits have got to breath!

If it's so hot that you'd rather wait until the sun drops a bit, the kit is built with subtle reflective details to keep you seen.

Summer is all about being outside, feeling free and having nothing holding you back. We tested the new Superlight early this year in the Australian summer and were all inspired by its seemingly weightless feeling whilst still being aerodynamic enough to feel fast, free and able to push through the extreme heat - Nathan Haas, Team KATUSHA ALPECIN

When it came to creating the Superlight kit, the priority, always, was to keep you cool, so that you can stay out in the heat performing better, longer.

AERO

The AERO kit is the result of a collaboration with Team KATUSHA ALPECIN, to develop the fastest cycling kit possible.

For the fast and furious, we developed the Aero collection, which is focused entirely on increasing your power output... perfect for number crunching riders seeking cycling clothing performing at the highest level.

After endless days spent testing in the wind tunnel, on the track and in the pro peloton, our R&D team discovered the ideal fabric type, cut and placement to optimise the aerodynamics of the kit.

Schoeller AERO Fabric on the shoulders, back, side panels and legs attaches the air flow to your body, directing and driving the flow to maximise aerodynamic gains.

To complement the superior speed, front and back panels have been created from 4-way stretch fabric to ensure long lasting comfort and allow unrestricted breathing, while superlight mesh panels under arms featuring 37.5® technology increase breathability and improve moisture management.

The arms and legs are laser cut, with silicone grippers to ensure the optimum placement, maximising aero benefits, while two hidden zippered side-entry pockets provide storage option without impacting the overall performance.

Aero is everything. A bus may have more power than a sports car but it won't be faster. KATUSHA kit is fast. You may not have as much power as the rider next to you, but the Aero kit will help turn what you do have into something faster than you expect - Alex Dowsett, previous track cycling world hour record holder.

Every single detail of the Aero kit has been designed to enable you to go faster!

NANO

The Nano kit features a new generation of ultra lightweight bib shorts and jersey, designed for hot rides and climbs.

During the design process of the NANO kit, our R&D team chose to use woven fabric, an uncommon occurrence in the manufacturing of cycling garments, which allowed us to achieve a 360° stretch, creating an optimal comfort and perfect fit. Additionally, compared to knitted fabrics, the NANO is 30-40% lighter for the same level of durability, with combined weight of the jersey and the bib shorts tipping the scales at a mere 207 grams for size medium.

The Nano kit’s fabrics are made from specific high torsion threads, composed of extra fine, high performance polyamide and Lycra elastane filaments. Polyamide brings an incredibly soft touch, while at the same time it provides good resistance to abrasion, while Lycra allows for a very high stretch and elasticity of the fabric.

Made for hot rides at altitude, the NANO Jersey also offers UV15+ protection. Laser cut vents are under the arms, on the back and bib, to further improve breathability.

Like the Icon Bib short, the Nano is built with the TM Armadillo Pad, for superior comfort during long days riding in the mountains.
