Full description

The long-sleeved VARS 50 ML jersey in double jersey merino wool is dedicated 100% to sport cycling in cold weather. Ideal for cool morning rides, it combines the advantages of merino wool (breathability, moisture regulation, softness and comfort) with cationic polyester (hard-wearing fibres and breathability). 

The double jersey knit in this bi-component fabric is a plus for optimum moisture management. The VARS 50 ML is soft and comfortable to the touch, fully breathable, anti-bacterial and anti-odour

As well as the three main rear pockets, there is also a rear pump pocket, and a small zipped pocket for valuables. The elastic cord at the waistline can be adjusted for perfect fit.

Like the VARS 50, the shoulder line in the long-sleeved model is also set forward, and two side panels form underarms gussets for a distinctive look, the mark of sportsmanship and 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 knit, double 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 performancetwo-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

Sizes guide

The VARS 50 ML 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.

I did my first ride in the long sleeve jersey yesterday, must say it was really enjoyable! The jersey was ideal for the circumstances; it was quite cold outside initially but when the sun came through the jersey still wasn't too warm. Really love the colours and the fit of the sleeves especially.


Le maillot VARS 50 ML sera parfait pour la mi-saison. Il peut se porter seul ou avec une première couche quand le temps est encore frais. 


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, ils n’en sont pas moins sportifs. Et c’est beau... Qui a dit que les vêtements cyclistes étaient ringards ? Nous, on adore.


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.


Louison Bobet, un champion mythique des années 50 qui donne désormais son nom à une nouvelle marque de vêtements cyclistes d’une rare élégance.


Réalisé en laine mérinos, le maillot procure grâce à ses propriétés une bonne respiration, une régulation de la transpiration et un confort certain.


Le maillot est bien slim et tombe parfaitement.
