Buy this Stormtrooper jersey, you must

The Empire bikes back

Are you planning the hostile takeover of any galaxies? Need help smashing that Kessel Run segment on Strava? Cycling kit maker Milltag has announced its new Original Stormtrooper jersey using a design licensed from the creator of the actual Stormtrooper costumes from the first Star Wars films, Andrew Ainsworth.

The new jerseys are available in white ‘Garrison’ and black ‘Shadow’ versions, and they include all the features you’d expect in a modern top: wicking fabric, a full-length zip, three rear pockets and a hidden zip pocket for valuables.

The fit is described as ‘club’, i.e. not super skin-tight. Stretchfit sleeves should make it more aero than an actual Stormtrooper, however.

Sizing for the original Stormtrooper jerseys range from XS to XXXL for men and XS-XL for women, so you’re catered for whether you’re more Ewok or Chew-biker in build.

The jerseys will retail at £75 in the UK, and Milltag notes that they are not available in the US, presumably due to rights issues.
