Endless kilometres – sun, rain, snow or wind – Alpine pass or Fuerteventura: I‘ve ridden in lots of places and seen a great deal. Then one long day in the mountains and my bib shorts were shot – my mood, too, for those last, long kilometres. I definitely chose the wrong gear. This kind of thing shouldn‘t happen again, so I went back to the drawing board. The pad in the bib shorts was given a gel core, the jersey an aero cut and ventilation. Everything constructed from the finest Italian fabrics. The kit needs to deal with a lot: I didn‘t just want it for long rides or to look good on a café stop: it also had to make riding a brevet comfortable and bearable. The BLACK ZERO kit was born. Ready for any number of kilometres.
