“I am as passionate about designing as I am about cycling, and I love that Velocio has given me this opportunity to bring the two together! As with our last collaboration, I created the Poppy Kit for Velocio to bring a little more glamour to the bike. This is one of my favorite floral prints because it is bold and colorful.”
“I spend a lot of time on my bike, so I can appreciate and address what is needed for a proper cycling kit – while infusing a touch of feminine color and style.”
– Lela Rose
Lela Rose is a New York City-based, American fashion designer widely regarded for her fresh point of view and aesthetic. Lela is passionate about color and prints, as well as fabrics and silhouettes. Using the new ES Kit as a canvas for her designs, Lela created this latest limited edition collaboration, following the successful Lela Rose Zinnia Kit from last summer.
The designer’s new offering includes Poppy Jersey and Poppy Bib Short, sold together as a kit, as well as the Poppy Wind Vest; a fantastic companion piece that completes the look.
The Poppy Bib Short is based on our ES Bib Short, a pared back version of our popular Signature Bib, with a focus on high breathability and support for long rides. Using a new proprietary chamois developed with Cytech and the addition of Denier Gradient Lycra, the ES is truly a race-inspired design that provides comfort for all-day riding regardless of the effort. Made from Italian Lycra fabric for exceptional feel, durability and comfort, the bib short is finished with the designer’s signature poppy print detail.
FIT NOTE: The ES Bib Short bears a highly compressive fit for excellent muscle support and recovery. If you prefer a more relaxed fit, we recommend sizing up.
