The heyday of La Vie Clair is nearly three decades behind us, but at Competitive, we still appreciate the French team’s memorable kits as much as the enduring victories delivered by the likes of Hinault and LeMond. Though the landscape of professional cycling has changed irrevocably since then, the Mondrian-esque kits that the team was known for retain their relevance. Far from the realm of shiny logos and ostentatious patterns, our LVC Jersey 3.0, created in collaboration with Castelli, pays homage to the amaranthine style of Mondrian and La Vie Claire.
Though we had a firm aesthetic direction from the start, we know better than to try and take on fit and construction ourselves. Instead, we trusted Castelli’s decades of expertise, adding our own Mondrian-inspired graphics atop the platform of one of Castelli’s proven training jerseys. Employing a fit that follows your body movements in the saddle without the watt-saving contouring of a race jersey, the LVC was made with training rides and a fondo or two in mind. The stretchy, light Procool Plus fabric features a Prosecco treatment to enhance its ability to move moisture, drawing it away from your skin to keep you cool and dry on the days you have no choice but to head out during peak sun hours.
The jersey’s slightly forward oriented sleeves and shorter waistline may feel odd while you’re standing up filling your water bottle before your ride, but once you’re in the saddle and clipped in, the fit will explain itself as it adapts to a riding position with expert precision. Though it will fit with more forgiveness than a Castelli race jersey, the LVC will still maintain its shape over the miles, following your body movements without stretching or bunching. A full-length zipper gives you the freedom to make bigger heat dumps mid-climb, while three rear pockets provide space for stashing a plethora of colorful ride fuel — in red, yellow, white, and blue, of course.
