Romance: 2018 Collection

This content was produced for the CyclingTips Emporium.

At the CyclingTips Emporium we curate the best and most unique cycling brands from around the globe and help you discover them all in one place.





Romance was founded by London lads Adam and Nathan with an aim to blur boundaries and inject art and design into cycling. For the past couple of years, they have established themselves in the UK cycling scene with kits that bring together performance, comfort and looks – Now you can get hold of their 2018 collection on the Emporium.
Each season alongside their full collection, they release a limited edition artist collaboration labelled Romance X – with all collab profits being donated to World Bicycle Relief charity. Last season they brought you: Camille Walala and Kate Moross. This time around they have hooked up with acclaimed Spanish artist Felipe Pantone to create a limited edition jersey which sold out almost immediately amid massive hype.
The 2018 collection brings together technological advances and features two new jersey’s, an all black and all navy set of bibs, gilet, artist collab caps and bidons.


Refined and enhanced for 2018, Romance’s jerseys deliver on all fronts: performance, comfort and looks. The new Romance Signature Pro race fit has been refined with a low cut race collar for a streamline pro look. New wide sleeve grippers spread the load for enhanced comfort whilst keeping the sleeve locked in place. The jersey hem has also received a wide laser cut gripper band for a clean seamless attachment to the bib shorts. The jersey features high-end MITI fabrics for ultimate breathability, feel and performance. Romance’s jersey cut is race optimised and intended to be worn snug and close against the skin.

Bib Shorts

The EROC bib short is Romance’s signature bibs, embodying the ultimate in performance and comfort. Constructed from pre-dyed, high-performance Italian lycra. Contoured multi-panel construction with compression control lycra ensures comfort and keeps your muscles feeling fresher for longer.

Their new seamless leg grippers provide hidden silicon gripper band keeping the leg end in place ensuring comfort, zero “ride up” and the sharpest tan lines in the pack. Romance have selected a tried, tested and loved Italian chamois pad, ensuring you will be comfortable all day long.


Early starts, cold descents, coffee stops – the Autocorrect Gilet makes all conditions right. Made from water-resistant, wind-resistant fabric with a slim cut and subtle stretch for that form-fitting forget it’s there feel. The lightweight fabric and ventilated micro-mesh back packs into a jersey pocket with ease.


Romance also have caps to coordinate with the kits, made in Italy by master-craft men and women, using traditional cycling cap fit and form, for that authentic racer look.


After a long hot ride our dream conclusion is a celebratory cold beer – Luckily Romance have teamed up with London based Howling Hops Craft Brewery to do just that. This bottle – the beer don – serves to remind us whilst out riding or racing that we’re doing it for fun.
