Italian Collection launched


Our third HUP collection has now been launched by our peloton of junior cyclists with some serious Strada Bianchi style testing in the new Italian Collection...

The Italian Collection

Inspired by the Giro d'Italia grand tour race in Italy and its infamous 'Cima Coppi' climbs of Passo dello Stelvio and Colle dello Finestre. Stylish apparel with Italian Eagle and Giro d'Italia racing colours is ready for any Strada Bianchi. Italian-made Jerseys and Bib Shorts (using Italian fabrics) with socks, casquettes and bundles for your Fondista.

The Collection is based around 2 Jersey designs, the 'Stelvio' and 'Finestre'.

Stelvio is named after the iconic Passo dello Stelvio, the 2nd highest paved pass in the Alps - the Stelvio pass is legendary. The Finestre is named after the infamous Colle delle Finestre, the Queen stage for 2018, it's a beast of a climb with the last 6km on gravel!.

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;
