Born in Belgium | Designed in the UK | Ridden Worldwide

Our first HUP collection has now been launched by our peloton of junior cyclists with a photoshoot in deepest Flanders-shire! A great day with our photographer and cameraman with a drone to capture the kids out having fun in the new Belgian Collection...

The Belgian Collection

The Belgian Collection is inspired by early season Spring Classic races like the Ronde van Vlaanderen, E3 Harelbeke & Gent-Wevelgem, featuring the Flanders Lion and Belgium National racing colours.  The Collection is based around 2 Jersey designs, the 'Koppenberg' and 'TEAM'.

The Koppenberg is named after the famous cobbled climb, so familiar to Spring Classic races. Our retro style TEAM jersey harks back to the 1970’s and legendary flandriens like Maertens, De Vlaeminck & Merckx.

Jerseys and Bib Shorts are Italian made, using Italian technical fabrics for unrivalled comfort and fit. These really do break the mould for children's cycling clothes. To complete the pro-peleton look are matching cycling socks and casquettes, which uniquely go down to very small sizes, specifically for younger riders.

We have 6 sizes to fit riders from age 6 to 14, that often will fit both younger and older riders too. Key jersey features;
