Campagnolo’s Cycling Apparel 11 SPEED clothing range launches in time for spring/summer 2009. The Italian firm says it represents the absolute best in performance and technology.

The 11 Speed jersey is made of Lycra Power, which Campagnolo claims is the most high performance and lightweight material on the market. New Revolutional fabric guarantees excellent breathability, maintains a constant body temperature, and has maximum UV ray protection blocking 98 per cent of harmful rays. (SPF Rating 50+).

Thanks to 360° stretch, the materials used provide the muscle compression ? the current buzzword in sports clothing ? improving the rider?s comfort and performance.

The jersey is completed by startlingly named IQueen reflective inserts that allow visibility of more than 160 metres, three back pockets and two side security pockets with zip.

The 11 SPEED bib shorts are made of eight panels in Lycra Power with side inserts in Lycra Revolutional, along with the revolutionary Tri-ProPad, designed by Campagnolo in collaboration with the most advanced research laboratories, based on a study of 5000 different positions on the seat that made it possible to catalogue the anthropomorphic characteristics of the cycling population and consequently to create the ideal pad.

The 11 SPEED line is available in two versions, full and ¾ zip, in black and white and in the sizes S to XXXL.
