Retro Cycling Outfit Molteni Orange - REDTED
This comfortable cycling outfit is a replica of the jersey of the Italian professional cycling team Molteni from the period 1958-1976. The team won a total of 663 stages, many of which were won by Molteni's most famous cyclist: Eddy Merckx. This Belgian rider has won the Tour de France and the Giro d'Italia five times. Two other well-known cyclists who were part of this cycling team were Gianni Motta and Marino Basso. These riders had won 48 and 34 stages each. In 1976 Molteni stopped sponsoring the cycling team definitively. This cycling jersey is specifically from the Merckx period (1971-1976). A beautiful tight cut jersey and a 3-ply cut shorts with an extended performance chamois from RedTed Performance, from the Molteni team.
The RedTed cycling jersey has an aerodynamic cut (so it's a bit tighter), a high quality YKK zip, a wide elastic band at the end of the slightly longer sleeves, a silicone band at the bottom with an extra wide elastic band at the front, and a long front zip (also available in short). A performance jersey for a great price.
The RedTed Performance cycling shorts have a perfect fit and are very comfortable. The shorts are made of different layers. The first layer is a comfortable and breathable fabric (Lycra) that can be worn directly on the skin. The chamois of RedTed Performance is widened so that irritation in the groin area is less likely. The second layer is an elastic shock absorbing silicone pad with laser perforation and gutters for sweat dispersion. The third layer is, again, a breathable fabric. The shorts are extremely comfortable and have good freedom of movement. At the end of the shorts is a wide elastic band, which is equipped with silicone grip. Thanks to this and the suspender straps, the bib shorts stay perfectly in place.
