Le Col are a new bike clothing company set up by pro rider Yanto Barker. Everything in the range has a slim, racy cut and it all comes in one colour scheme – black with gold stitching and details.
The materials are good, the features are well thought out, and the build quality is high… as are the prices. The angora undervest is 80 percent wool, 20 percent viscose in a dense weave and adds a whole lot of warmth on cold days.
It’s comfy on your skin, wicks sweat pretty well and still keeps you warm when damp. We ignored the ‘hand wash only’ instructions, obviously, with no ill effects.
