Professional cycling is a sport in which every detail has the potential to impact your race result. After all, when you’re riding extended efforts over the course of hundreds or even thousands of miles, otherwise marginal gains here and there can mean the difference between a pack finish and a podium win. As such, riders will do everything they can to ensure that they’re as aero as possible, rocking cutting-edge gear and even going so far as to shave their legs.
For its latest release, British cycling label Le Col has teamed up with McLaren on a collection of technical apparel that’s guaranteed to offer you a competitive advantage. Dubbed ‘Project Aero,’ it comprises a pair of socks, both short and long-sleeved jerseys, as well as a speedsuit and a full skinsuit that were each co-developed with the help of the automaker’s aerodynamic engineers. Across the board, you’ll find high-speed, form-fitting lycra constructions with strategically-mapped dimple texturing that’s designed to promote airflow over the garment’s front-facing surfaces. Tested both within the wind tunnel and out on the World Tour, this is one project that takes cycling apparel performance to the next level. Buy it now starting at $51.
