Forte Cycling Review | Le Col Cycling Apparel
We have been wearing the LeCol road cycling apparel over the last couple of weeks whilst in Spain, everything in their summer range from socks, warmers and caps to jersey, bib-shorts, rainproof gilet and a rain jacket for when the weather turns. We will be looking into some of the items individually to review but for now here is a look at a couple of outfits.
One of the first things noticeable with LeCol, over other clothing brands is the fact they insist on only embroidering their logo's on instead of heat transferring - this is mainly to avoid cracking, peeling off and generally making the garment look scruffy and not lasting its lifetime.
AW15 LeCol HC Range:
Who said Fluorescent is out of fashion? If it was LeCol has definitely brought it back! Navy blue with touches of fluoro yellow predominantly on the sleeves of the jersey and the thighs of the bib-shorts creates a very classy and stylish outfit. The way the jersey grips to you on the sleeves are different to normal grippers, and ensures no slippage, especially when wearing arm warmers which in turn help to keep them in place.
Looking further into the HC range jersey, we notice a water-proof pocket that is stitched into just behind the pocket itself big enough to protect your smartphone from moisture caused by sweat or from an unexpected rain shower.
Insight: AW16 HC LeCol Range:
A look at a new colour way for the 2016 HC Range, a fantastic titanium grey colour which looks really smart especially if you happened to own a Titanium bicycle! We look forward to see what other colours LeCol has in store for their 2016 range.
