Campagnolo returns to apparel business

by CyclingTips

Campagnolo is branching out beyond components. The Italian brand, which closed down its short-lived apparel line a few years back, has debuted a collection of Italian-made spring and summer garments including jerseys, bib shorts, jackets, skinsuits, and gilets for both men and women.

The clothing is designed with a focus on aerodynamics and durability, according to Campagnolo. The kit utilizes triple-thread seams and abrasion-resistant fabrics on key contact points, as well as stretch fabrics and tailored cuts to minimize material folds and flapping.

The first collection is intended for spring/summer use.

Prices for the short sleeve jerseys start at £87/€99/US$116/AUS$154 and bib shorts start at from £105/€119/US$140/AU$186.

The clothing will be available directly via Campagnolo’s newly revamped website.
