Retro Cycling Outfit Molteni Rainbow - RedTed


Cycling Outfits - Men - REDTED

A replica retro cycling outfit from our exclusive RedTed collection. A cycling jersey with an aerodynamic and clean cut design and cycling shorts with comfortable and performance fabric and chamois. All in all, the look of the past and the comfort of the present.

The RedTed Performance retro cycling jerseys have a silicone grip at the back and an elastic band with a grip at the front. Together with the elastic band at the (somewhat longer) sleeve, this ensures the jersey stays perfectly in place while cycling. The fabric is 100% polyester with a micro-hole ball pattern (breathable and lightweight).

These cycling jerseys are aerodynamic - so 'slim fit'; just a bit more tailored than the standard Retro Cycling jerseys. Because of the flatlock stitching, the jersey is sturdy and the seams do not irritate. The cycling jerseys are finished with a hidden long YKK heavy duty zip and have 3 large back pockets which are closed with an elastic band.

The RedTed Performance cycling shorts are composed of 3 different layers. The first layer is a breathable comfortable fabric (Lycra). The second layer contains an anti-shock cushion. The third layer is again a breathable fabric. Our RedTed Performance cycling shorts also contain a widened performance chamois for extra comfort and convenience. Suitable for short as well as long rides. The RedTed Performance cycling outfits are available in 8 sizes, from S till 5XL.


ATTENTION: 'Italian' sizing and 'slim fit' so be sure to choose one size bigger than your usual European dress size. CHECK OUT THE SIZING TABLE.

Retro Cycling Outfit Molteni Rainbow - 1971 and 1974 - REDTED

A RedTed replica of the rainbow cycling outfit from Molteni. This comfortable cycling outfit is a replica of the rainbow jersey of the Italian professional cycling team Molteni from 1971 and 1974. This jersey is specifically from the Merckx period (1971-1976). 

Molteni was a former Italian cycling team that was active from 1958 until the end of 1976. Molteni was a salami producer based in the town of Arcore, in the region of Milan. The team won 663 stages.

With the Molteni World Champion jersey from 1971 and 1974, cycling is suddenly a lot easier. The rainbow jersey has been awarded to world champions since 1927. It is a white jersey with the rainbow stripes: blue, red, black, yellow and green. These colours stand - like the rings of the Olympics - for the five continents Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania and America. Alfredo Binda was the first to wear the rainbow jersey as world champion in 1927. And in 1958, the first woman to wear the rainbow jersey was Elsy Jacobs from Luxembourg. 

This rainbow jersey by RedTed is a replica of the rainbow jersey worn by Eddy Merckx as cycling world champion in 1971 and 1974. Baron Merckx won a total of four world championships; in 1964 he won the world championship among amateurs and among the professionals he became world champion three times (1967, 1971, 1974).
