Doug from 160over90 sent over their team kits. Sure, lycra is lycra to most but anyone who posts their design process and sketches deserves a little recognition. Head over and check it out. I’m way into these.

This looks killer.
“DUE IN STOCK MID JUNE. A tribute to the combative Colombian riders of the 1980s, this high-performance cycling jersey has been developed for the hottest, most humid conditions. It is made from three proprietary technical fabrics developed exclusively for Rapha.
Please note: $5 from each jersey will go to the Rigoberto Urán Cycling Club in Urrao, which gives disadvantaged children in Colombia the opportunity to ride and race bikes.”
$150 from Rapha. Sign up for their email notifications to be alerted when it’s in stock.
To celebrate the bird of prey, the bearded vulture, or Lammergeier, that inhabit one of the most dangerous loops in the Pyrenees mountains, Rapha designed the Circle of Death Jersey. Here’s a little background:
“Circle of Death is the infamous loop of Pyrenean mountains that contains the Col d’Aubisque, Col d’Aspin, Col de Peyresourde and the mighty Col du Tourmalet – all of which feature on the route of this year’s Etape Acte II, Pau-Luchon. The first riders to challenge these punishing ascents were understandably apprehensive about what awaited them; not simply the altitude but the creatures that resided there, such as bears and vultures.
While bears are now rarely seen in these parts, birds of prey still patrol the valleys and peaks. And none are more mercurial than the Lammergeier, or bearded vulture. Feeding mostly from carcasses of dead animals, the Lammergeier can swallow whole bones up to the size of a lamb’s femur and its powerful digestive system quickly dissolves even large pieces. The Lammergeier has learned to crack bones too large to be swallowed by carrying them up to a height and then dropping them onto rocks below, smashing them into smaller pieces and exposing the nutritious marrow. Its old name of Ossifrage meaning bone breaker relates to this habit. For intrepid Etape riders labouring up these monstrous climbs, the sight of the birds circling overhead is likely to be an ominous one.”

Kirschner is a Brazilian cycling apparel company that required the creative workings of the UK creative consultancy, Six. Since they were a new company, everything was required. From hang tags to branding and their first jersey. The outcome is above and you can see the rest here, at September Industry. I like this one a lot. September Industry, a UK graphic design magazine has the feature up on their blog.
