When it comes to creating cycle clothing, who better to go to than the people who spend their lives on two wheels?
Katusha Sports, launched in the winter of 2015, belongs to the same company that owns the WorldTour team and the input of professional riders is present from the very first pencil stroke on the drawing board through to the final positioning of the grippers on the bib shorts.
The result is a no holds barred approach when it comes to the fabrics sourced and incorporated into the products and the final design, with feedback from Katusha riders every step of the way.
Whether it be hyper-wicking materials for a lightweight summer jersey or a thermo-regulating fabric that combines breathability with wind and water resistance, Katusha Sports clothes must perform day in, day out in the extreme conditions that form a professional riders’ working environment.
From the wet and windy spring rides of Classics star Alexander Kristoff in Stavanger, Norway, to the icy cold conditions for Marco Haller in Klagenfurt, Austria and the scorching summer heat of Spanish climber Joaquim Rodriguez’s home roads, these are the tools of the professional rider.
