Following a partnership announcement late last year, the Le Col x Haute Route kit has been officially unveiled. With the announcement that the collection will be available in early April 2020, riders and Haute Route event participants alike can equip themselves with the new cycling apparel.
The collection includes three designs. Each design is inspired by the mountains and the routes that make Haute Route’s events world-renowned. Le Col adds that the range combines the best technical and luxury fabrics to deliver a high-performance jersey and bib short combination, for the temperatures and conditions that riders will experience during their Haute Route experience.
3-Day Event Jersey
The multi-stage racing in the Haute Route events is possibly the closest an amateur rider can get to the pro-peloton. The new 3-Day jersey is designed to reflect the multi-stage aspect of Haute Route. With Le Col’s trademark four-way stretch fabrics delivering a technical pro-fit, the apparel is finished with ‘orange tones punching through a grey fade’.
Haute Route Pyrenees Jersey
Inspired by the famous Tourmalet, the highest paved mountain pass in the French Pyrenees, this limited edition jersey is designed to offer top performance and comfort whilst celebrating one of the most prominent climbs in the history of cycling. This particular design will be available only to those taking on the Haute Route Pyrenees event series.
Haute Route Alps
Paying homage to some of cycling’s most iconic climbs, this unique design will be exclusively available to participants of the Haute Route Alps event. The specifically designed lightweight jersey will offer riders a breathable race fit designed with performance in mind.
The Pyrenees and Alps are just two events in a packed Haute Route calendar for 2020. The series visits France, Italy, Switzerland and Brazil before culminating in Haute Route Mexico in October.
‘The kit partnership with Le Col means that riders taking on each challenge will have the best performance clothing available to tackle the toughest and most rewarding days on a bike.’
