In the late 20th century, pro cycling was flooded with a raft of sponsorship deals from electronics companies vying for attention in the European market. Toshiba entered the race in 1987, taking over from La Vie Claire as title sponsor of Greg LeMond’s former team. Renowned for their rapid adoption of new technology, they were among the first to use carbon fibre frames, clipless pedals, and heart rate monitors. But perhaps their most memorable use of technology was their jersey design. The advent of sublimation printing brought forth an anything-goes era of garish graphics, and the heavy black diagonal lines, brash colours, and big logos of Team Toshiba’s kit were no exception.
This special edition Lightweight Shadow Jacket features design elements honouring those days, complete with artwork on the shoulder panel and cuff, as well as reflective heat transfers reminiscent of the loud logos that dominated cycling in that era. Made with our proprietary Lightweight Shadow fabric, this out-of-the-pocket jacket combines feathery weight with unparalleled wind and water-resistant properties. A full-length, two-way Vislon zip allows for easy adjustments on the fly, while elasticated closures at the cuffs and the hem hold the jacket in place at the same time as keeping bulk to a minimum – helpful when stuffing the jacket into a jersey pocket.
