The supporter jerseys have arrived and are on sale with Prendas Ciclismo. Made in Italy by Santini this is a lightweight jersey for summer.
Their website has more pictures and if you’re tempted, check their sizing guide as this is detailed and helpful. If you’re still stuck, give the shop a call or send them an email as Mick and Andy of Prendas couldn’t be more helpful. If you are interested don’t wait because when the supporter caps were launched they sold out in a day. The price is £55 (roughly $82 / €76) plus postage.
The colours are there… to add colour and they mimic the tones of the leaders jerseys in the three grand tours. The lightweight “Energy Microsense” fabric is designed for summer. If it helps mine weighs under 160 grams.
It has a full zip, the classic three pockets on the back plus an extra zipped pocket on the outside. The Santini logo on the back is reflective, handy if you’re in an unlit tunnel while climbing a mountain pass.
Sales revenue is split between Prendas and me so if you buy a jersey, armwarmers or a cap – or all three – you get some nice kit and also help keep the wheels of this website turning.
