Marque française, hommage à Louison, beau design, il n'en fallait pas plus pour que nous tombions sous le charme. Les maillots sont magnifiques, mélange de mérinos et de polyester. Très confortables, il n'en sont pas moins sportifs. Et c'est beau... Qui a dit que les vêtements cyclistes étaient ringards ? Nous, on adore.

F. YATES - L'ACHETEUR CYCLISTE

Nous roulons avec leurs produits depuis maintenant 9 mois et nous pouvons vous garantir que la marque maîtrise les matières, et notamment le mérinos, comme très peu savent le faire. Finis les chocs thermiques, les ascensions en surchauffe et les descentes avec la sueur qui vous glace. Les maillots LB ont révolutionné notre façon de rouler - à ce stade on peut réellement parler d'innovation - sans être transformé en panneau publicitaire.

Full description

The SOLINGEN 54 is a short-sleeved 100% sports cycling jersey in double jersey merino wool. It combines all the advantages of merino wool (a soft and comfortable moisture-regulating, breathing fabric) with cationic polyester (hard-wearing fibres and breathability)

The bi-component fabric goes beyond the soft to-the-touch easy-to-wear comfort of merino wool, and meets the surge of interest in «noble» materials. By selecting this particular fabric and knit, we have produced a garment that brings an added extra to moisture management. You’ll feel the difference when you wear it.

The two bands in stretch gros-grain ribbon trim on the chest of the jersey recalls the year 1954, when Louison won both the Tour de France, and the World Championship in Solingen, Germany.

The shoulder line kept on the shoulder section and the two side panels that also form underarm gussets give it a special appearance that echoes the designs of that time yet add a mark of sportsmanship and a thoroughly modern elegance.

Why merino wool?

Merino is light, natural and soft against the skin. It will partner you on your bike 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. 

Louison Bobet® jerseys use an exclusive and innovative knitdouble jersey, manufactured in one of only two companies in Europe licensed 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

Specificities

The SOLINGEN 54’s double ergonomic bands give the jersey unique support beneath the chest. Once on the road you’ll forget you were even aware of them – but you’ll enjoy that special look when relaxing. 

A backward glance at the champion’s double win in 1953, the duo reaffirms the determination to be «Riding with panache».

The reinforced trim on the SOLINGEN 54 is used to highlight the jersey’s sleeve edges.

Embroidered inside and outside, it also offers a light, sober and distinctive contrast to the single colour of the main knit.
