Solo Winter Jersey
From its snug no-flap fit to its classic striped knitted cuffs and collar (close your eyes and you could imagine Eddy Merckx wearing this top in the '60s) you can tell this is a Solo jersey.
- Constructed in a bang-up-to-date 90% polyester / 10% elastane fabric, the Solo Winter Jersey is soft, lightly fleecy, wicking and stretchy.
- Each of the jacket's three 19cm-deep rear pockets is topped with reflective piping as is the zipped security pocket on the outside of the right-hand rear pocket.
- All these pockets are waterproof lined to help keep their contents dry.
- The jacket's fifth pocket is cleverly concealed - it can only be accessed via a discreet zip on the RH hem - so it might be the perfect place to stash an emergency bank card or fiver.
- Machine wash cold.
- The front zip has a zipper locker to prevent cold contact between zip and neck.
- The zip is lined in a contrast red fabric to introduce a discreet dash of colour.
'The Solo winter jersey is designed to be your workhorse cold weather training and racing jersey. It is constructed from a luxurious fleece backed thermal fabric and includes a range of features designed to keep you warm and comfortable.'
The story of Solo in the company founder's own words
'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.'
