UK brand Torm launches women’s jersey range
New sportwool women’s range launched by niche clothing brand.
Despite the funny “o” in its name, Torm is based in Broadstairs, Kent and has been selling men’s cycling jerseys since 2010. Now it has launched a women’s range to add to its selection of men’s jerseys, base layers and arm warmers.
There’s a tendency for women’s cycling kit to be sold in pastel colours and with floral motifs. Torm has bucked the trend, launching a range of women’s jerseys in tasteful primary colours with contrasting banding. The jerseys are made of sportwool– a mix of merino wool and polyester, a fabric which is used by other premium UK based clothing vendors including Shutt and Rapha.
Torm’s jerseys come equipped with YKK zippers and have no less than five back pockets – there are zippered ones on the right and left sides as well as the usual three open ones. All seams are flatlocked to avoid irritation and there are silicone grippers and reflective piping on the rear pockets. Rather than being printed on or woven into the fabric, the bands of contrasting colour on the jerseys are separate pieces of fabric sewn into the jersey with a double row of stitching.

There are full zip and quarter zip versions available, with the jerseys retailing for between £54 and £59. They can be bought on-line with free shipping for orders over £60, or at SP Cycles in Broadstairs.
