Ride in yellow.
Wearing the yellow jersey, however briefly, is a revered accomplishment in any rider's career, inspiring competition throughout the peloton that's just plain fun to watch in the early days of the Tour. This year, Froome's fight for yellow was defined by impeccably timed breakaways, aggressive descents, and the invaluable aid of a well-oiled team. To give a nod to the thrilling rivalries and everything unexpected that happens in pursuit of yellow, we teamed up with Castelli to create the Leader Jersey.
We'll admit, we're always more inspired than usual to push a little harder and aim for higher weekly mileage during the weeks of the Tour, so we aimed to create a jersey that would make a versatile, functional training companion. While we took on aesthetics, we left the construction up to Castelli, adding graphics atop the brand's Team jersey. Crafted with Castelli's stretchy, lightweight Procool Plus, the jersey follows a streamlined, but not "aero" fit that will match your body movements in the saddle. Features like forward-oriented sleeves and a shorter torso are hallmarks of Castelli fit, helping the jersey achieve an ideal position once you're in the saddle.
Castelli also adds a Prosecco treatment to the Procool to equip it to more efficiently manage moisture, drawing sweat away from your skin so it can quickly evaporate at the surface when you're sweating like it's July in the South of France. An elastic waistband holds the back of the jersey securely in place as you ride, while standard, but welcome features like three rear pockets and a full-length zipper give you freedom to stash ride fuel and make bigger heat dumps mid-climb, be it your neighborhood roller or Alpe d'Huez.
