Description

A futuristic theme park set in rural France, Futuroscope’s late-80s aesthetic was the perfect backdrop for the emerging technological presence in pro cycling. The neon jerseys, fluorescent bikes, and vibrant company logos looked right at home framed in the park’s science-fiction landscape. For the 1990 Tour, Futuroscope hosted not only the prologue, but a double-header Grand Départ featuring a 138-kilometre morning race and a 45-kilometre team time trial in the afternoon. “It was like something from space,” said Frans Maassen, winner of stage one and key protagonist in the infamous 10-minute breakaway that would shape that year’s tour.

This special edition Pro Team Lightweight Gilet features design elements honouring those days, complete with sublimated artwork and an iridescent treatment reminiscent of the loud logos that dominated cycling in that era. Extremely lightweight, it can pack down to be stored in a jersey pocket until a cold descent or as the sun drops, and also incorporates a two-way VISLON® zip, allowing you to unzip from the bottom for easy access to your jersey pockets. As with all Pro Team products, everything about this cycling gilet is designed with performance and comfort in mind: a mesh fabric on the inner collar and perforated holes on the neck help you avoid overheating and the directly applied silicon on the front hem helps keep the gilet in place during hard rides.
