The Hackney GT Typo jersey is one of five new designs for summer 2018. All Hackney GT’s clothing is made in the UK, although the fabrics come from Belgium.

Hackney GT has worked with urban designer Swifty on the graphics for the Typo, using a font developed by him. It’s big and bold and the design stands out from other cycling jerseys out there. You also get a Made in England logo at the base of the rear, to show you’re supporting the home team, as well as a reflective dart on the middle pocket’s lower seam.
