Solo Classique Jersey
Solo pay homage to the cycling jerseys of the 1950s through to the 70's. The classic era from Coppi to Merckx via Anquetil.
The Solo Classique range is particularly inspired by the fabulous jerseys worn by Italian teams back in the day.
But rather than simply creating replica models, each Solo jersey is a fresh design using the best fast-drying fabrics (which are a real improvement on many of the fabrics of yore) and employing a truly vibrant palette or colours. To our eyes, they're quiet simply some of the best tops we have had the pleasure to offer.
- The highly breathable and wickable Nuovotech polyester fabric feels silky smooth, and it helps keep you cool and dry.
- Solo's unique knitted polycotton/lycra striped arm and neck bands look just right and introduce an extra luxury feel to this jersey.
- 18cm front zip with over-size zip-pull designed for using with gloved fingers.
- Customised Solo silicone elastic grippers on the lower hem stop the Solo CC Jersey riding up.
- The three open rear pockets are elasticated at the top to keep your valuables safe.
- A zipped pocket on the outside of the right hand pocket keeps your phone, or the like, even safer.
- Superb quality screen-printed (not digitally printed) design means brighter and more vivid colours.
'Italy is one of the truly great cycling nations. The Moretti jersey reflects the passion, colour and excitement of Italian cycling.
Each Solo Classique jersey is our interpretation of the styles worn by the great riders of the 50's - 70's. Our jerseys are tailored from Nuovotech polyester with superb moisture-wicking qualities. This means we can use colours, patterns and styles that are not possible with wool. It's the best of both worlds - retro style using modern fabric. Look closer and you’ll notice the meticulous attention to detail throughout each garment. Solo Classique jerseys look amazing and feel great to wear.'
And this is the Solo story.
'Solo cycle clothing was born from my dissatisfaction with the style of contemporary cycle clothing. While I had a deep respect for modern pro-cyclists, I didn’t particularly admire the ‘moving billboard’ look of modern team kit. What I did love was the clothing worn by the pro-riders of the 1950's - 1970's. These were simple and powerful designs which demonstrated that less is more. Talking with my friends and cycling acquaintances made me realise there were other cyclists who felt the same.
I searched for clothing that had the same flair and emotion I saw in the vintage jerseys. The choice seemed to be either replica kits and original wool or wool/acrylic jerseys. The replica team kits seemed to lose so much in the translation to modern garments, while the original wool jerseys looked great but weren’t very practical for daily riding.
At the time I had a graphic design business, but there was a nagging feeling that there must be more to life than designing brand identities for other companies. I guess you could call it a mid-life crisis... So I took the plunge and decided to combine my experience in the design industry with my love of cycling and create something special: a range of cycle clothing inspired by the great riders, grand tours, equipment and cycling culture of that golden era. The clothing had to be functional and well constructed but more importantly, it had to make you feel great. The decision was made and one year later, in August 2005, Solo was born. Since day one our mission remains the same: to produce the most beautiful cycle clothing in the world.
Solo clothing has now been purchased by cyclists in over 50 countries and we’re steadily increasing the network of retailers selling Solo worldwide. We’ve made a lot of new friends since we started – one of the most gratifying aspects of the business – and we value the feedback we get from our customers and cycling friends. Knowing that people all over the world are enjoying riding their bikes while wearing Solo is immensely satisfying to us.
A big thanks to all of you who have purchased Solo clothing.'
