We're pleased to present our 2014 Spring Collection with clothing to please every type of rider, from the weekend racer to Gran Fondo riders to cyclists and triathletes who want to maximize performance. New across much of the Spring 2014 line are ProGrip arm and leg bands for added comfort and performance, plus other items designed especially for high performance and hot conditions.
Updated Signature Jersey and New Signature Bibshort — This high performance kit was created for spirited cycling enthusiasts seeking the finest materials and construction. The lightweight, top-of-the-line Signature Jersey is designed for speed with aerodynamic Tour Tek™ Lite fabric, which also wicks moisture and provides cooling properties along with TurboMesh™ and Scholler coldblack® panels. A zippered, waterproof pocket protects valuables.
The climate-regulated Signature Bibshort is made to withstand wind, heat, and the elements. The durable, super-opaque AT1 Superstruct™ Lycra® Power and MachSpeed™ panels provide a supple, supportive fit. The ultra aero Deflector™ fabric on the side panels provides optimal wind resistance and the comfortable power stretch IllusionMesh™ upper wicks moisture away from the body.
Both the jersey and the bibshorts are made from strategically placed Resistex® Carbon panels to help lower temperature, heart rate and lactic acid concentration in muscles. They also utilize new ProGrip arm and leg bands and reflective treatment for enhanced visibility.
Vantage Jersey, Bib Short, Arm and Knee Warmers — The new Vantage Jersey is durable and race-inspired but designed for everyday comfort. The aerodynamic pattern and elastic TourTek™ fabric hugs the body to reduce drag and maximize performance while wicking moisture away from the skin. The Accelerator™ stretch mesh provides flexible ventilation and quick drying performance. The updated ProGrip™ arm bands, another innovative feature, provide enhanced comfort.
The Vantage Bibshort is made from durable, 225 gsm AT2 Tour™ Lycra® Power, which provides compressive support to stabilize muscles and reduce fatigue. The Lightweight TourTek™ Compressor moves and conforms to the body for the perfect fit while the soft, aerating power stretch Diamond™ Mesh upper dries quickly to help regulate temperature.
Completing the Vantage kit are warmers, gloves, and caps, made from the most innovative technology to keep moisture away from the body.
Revamped Edge Jersey and Bibshort—Designed for the weekend racer, the super lightweight and aerodynamic Edge Jersey has a race-inspired fit and is the ideal choice for hotter days. Soft, TourTek™ Lite fabric wicks moisture away from the skin and also hugs the body to reduce drag and maximize performance.
Like the Edge Jersey, the Edge Bibshort keeps the rider cool and comfortable while riding in the hottest conditions. It combines style, performance, and comfort with the ultimate in technology. The moisture-wicking AT2 Force™ Lycra® Power with coldblack® construction hugs and moves with the body for the perfect fit. The soft, aerating power stretch Diamond™ Mesh upper dries quickly to help regulate temperature while the sleek ProGrip™ comfort leg bands prevent legs from riding up.
Most of Hincapie's apparel has an SPF of 30+ to 50+, providing superior protection against UVA and UVB rays. Proprietary Schoeller® coldblack® finish technology, which reflects heat away from the body to regulate temperature, is used in many of Hincapie's apparel items. Apparel also is designed for high visibility and many of the items in the line have three rear back pockets including a zippered waterproof security pocket that protects valuables from moisture.
Women's Apparel—For 2014 Hincapie is introducing the Chantilly Jersey, an elegant and stylish jersey that works hard wicking moisture, blocking UV rays, and enhancing comfort. Made with an aerodynamic pattern, the Chantilly Jersey is crafted from a super-fine, elastic TourTek™ fabric that hugs the body to reduce drag while it wicks moisture away from the skin. One of the jersey's most innovative features is the addition of a third back pocket thanks to a “stacked” construction where the third pocket is stitched inside the two exteriors.
The Chantilly Short, a responsive, compressive short that enhances performance and conforms comfortably to the body with supple support, is an ideal pairing to the jersey. It features durable, 225 gram AT2 Tour™ Lycra™ Power to stabilize muscles and reduce fatigue. Matching arm and knee warmers also are available.
Triathlon Apparel—The Fluid Plus Tri Top now offers new lighter fabric and features ergonomic paneling while the Fluid Plus Tri Skinsuit features Hincapie Gel-grip leg openings and two gel pockets for men and one for women.
Hincapie also has updated the Flow Triathlon series thanks to input from the pro triathletes that Hincapie supports. The Flow Tri Top and Flow Tri Suits (both men's and women's) are now a lighter weight version using RaceFlow Lite with Acqua Zero Technology with 170 gsm instead of 240 gsm for increased comfort and to help triathletes feel as cool as possible. The Flow Tri Shorts and Flow Tri Suits also now have inner panels made from a dyed black fabric with increased abrasion resistance to improve the life of the garment.
Other new features include the Tri Sports Bra to keep women athletes comfortable and dry, no matter how grueling the race or how variable the weather. The Flow Sun Sleeve, also a new addition, helps female riders stay dry and comfortable and protects against harmful UV rays. The ergonomic pattern with articulated elbows fits the body in ride position.
