Velobici teams up with Factor Bikes for exclusive clothing range

Velobici has partnered with Factor Bikes to create an exclusive range of performance cycle clothing.

Each Velobici x Factor Bikes garment is constructed in Leicestershire. For every sale from the collection, a percentage of the proceeds will be donated to mental health charities around the world.

The collection is themed around two colourways – grey and red, both with embroidered logo detailing and a lightweight, high-wicking fabric. The accompanying bib shorts are black and feature mild compression fit to aid endurance and bioceramic pads for freshness. The collection also includes accessories with a range of off-bike clothing to follow later in the summer.
