The limited edition range comprises an aero jersey and cap designed to reflect Sir Chris Hoy’s illustrious track cycling career. The black jersey features six gold and one silver band running across the front and rear of the jersey in a track-shaped oval. It’s finished off with the usual three open pockets at the rear along with a central zippered valuables pocket and a prominent Hoy Vulpine logo in gold at the centre. In addition the sleeve ends are finished with gold edging and there’s a full front zip.
Watch: how much faster is a skinsuit?
Sir Chris Hoy teamed up with the Vulpine cycling clothing brand in 2015 to launch the Hoy Vulpine range of performance cycling kit. The Palmarès jersey is available for men and women, both priced at £115.
There’s a matching cap which is priced at £15 and which also features the six plus one band design. The Palmarès kit will only be sold via Vulpine’s website as a limited edition and available only until sold out.
Commenting on the new jersey, Sir Chris said: “This is a performance aero jersey without the in your face logos and brash colours. Both myself and Nick wanted this to be a classy celebration of my Palmarès and I think we’ve definitely achieved this. Having retired from competitive cycling three years ago and with 2016 being such a big year for sport, we thought it would be fun and timely to look back at my career and put all the results together into a piece I hope cycling fans will enjoy owning and wearing.”
