British cycling apparel brand Le Col and Team WIGGINS, the professional development team founded by Sir Bradley Wiggins, will reveal the team's new apparel later this month at an exclusive event.
The partnership will see Le Col design and develop a bespoke range of performance cycling apparel for the team in 2018.
Sir Bradley Wiggins said: “I’m delighted for Team WIGGINS to be working with Le Col. I’ve known Yanto for a long time and I know how much focus he has brought to creating the very best performance product on the market. As a former pro, I know he just gets it and that’s why we all feel that Le Col is the perfect brand for the team.
“The design of this season’s Team WIGGINS kit is my favorite so far, it’s distinctive and stylish, and I am looking forward to seeing the guys racing in it. Working with Le Col’s designers has been a case of perfectly matching their performance insight and design expertise with my passion for historical cycling kit.”
Le Col founder Yanto Barker added: “Team WIGGINS is a brilliant team that helps to develop some of the most talented young riders in the world, something Le Col have invested in and supported since we started in 2011. The team deserve the very best performance apparel, and that’s exactly what we will give them. It’s a really exciting partnership for us, and working with the team has been a long-term goal for myself.”
Team WIGGINS and Le Col are unveiling the new kit on Tuesday, February 20 at the team launch event, which includes a mass group ride with Team WIGGINS’ riders, in the new kit, on virtual cycling platform Zwift.
Le Col’s Team WIGGINS collection will be available to customers to pre-order in March and will include jersey, bibshorts and accessories.
