Full description


A hero of his time, Louison Bobet made innovation one of the keys to his success, both during his sporting career and in his subsequent professional life. It was he who suggested moving the pockets to the back of the jersey for greater ease of movement when leaning forward on the bike. He was one of the first to develop a new kind of training program, working as a team with his physiotherapist Raymond Le Bert in an approach that included diet, physiotherapy and phases and methods of training and recuperation. Further innovation came with the development of modern thalassotherapy and the opening of a first centre in Quiberon in 1964, offering a new kind of therapy for fitness and wellbeing. 

In this period of change and transformation, women are bringing about a movement of emancipation and full recognition, inspired by emblematic and mostly female role models who have pushed the limits further. 

With the women’s collection, LOUISON BOBET pays homage to this spirit of innovation and conquest, dedicating these Performance and Lifestyle pieces to all women who love cycling for sport, for pleasure and for the freedom it brings. Always with style and elegance, and based on an exclusively feminine design that’s closer to their needs, backed by the experience of our stylists. 

The initial pieces in the Louison Bobet women’s collection are the essentials, perfect partners for all cycling. Made with ergonomics and technical aspects in mind, but with no concessions when it comes to discreet feminine chic.

FABRIC

Louison Bobet® Essentiels jerseys use an exclusive and innovative knit, double jersey, manufactured in one of only two companies in Europe licenced by Woolmark®. A fabric that makes the jersey one of a kind in its category –and you’ll feel the difference when you wear it. 

Why double jersey?

An exclusive, high performance two-component, the innovative knit effortlessly combines the qualities of merino wool with those of synthetic fabrics, with an inner layer of wool, soft to the touch and with its own intrinsic qualities, and a silky yet highly resistant polyester outer layer. 

Why merino wool?

Merino is lightnatural and soft against the skin. It will partner you on your rides whatever the weather or situation. Its insulation and breathability, together with its original antibacterial qualities, considerably reduce unpleasant sweat-related body odour, making it a pleasure for riding and a pleasure to wear.

Sizes guide

The MEXICO 68 LS jersey must be worn «close to the body» in contact with the skin, to fully benefit from the qualities of fine merino wool. We advise you to refer to the following table to make the right choice:

  • Shoulder line: measured distance arm falling between each outer end of the bones of your shoulders.
  • Chest circumference: distance taken around the body at the height of the chest.
  • Arm length: measured distance arm falling between the shoulder bone and the wrist bone.

In case you are between two sizes or you prefer a more confortable feeling, we suggest you to opt for the larger size.

RÉVOLUTION. Il fut un temps où les tenues de cyclisme rivalisaient de pair avec le design des pièces hommes ou s’essayaient à un style complètement non-féminin. Et bien ça, c’était avant. On a complètement craqué pour cette collection Femme par Louison Bobet. Conçues pour des conditions estivales ou de mi-saison, toutes les pièces sont respirantes, confortables, ergonomiques et dessinent une silhouette réellement féminine, que l’on soit sportive ou compétitrice. Bravo !
