It gathered a serious collection of devoted fans when we launched the RECON Wool long sleeve and that’s easy to see why. As material fibers go, it’s tough to beat wool. Wicking, warming and with the natural performance that works when wet and resists odor, the original jerseys that graced cycling’s romantic era were wool for a reason. But wool by itself isn’t enough. Enter the RECON Wool Long Sleeve, the base of the RECON range. Fine Merino Wool is plaited with polyamide for durability and strength. This jersey, true to the line, is designed for seeking out new ground without appearing too wildly technical or constricting while on the bikes. This is a jersey that does double duty as a light overlayer off the bike.
The Wool Long Sleeve incorporates details like a concealing flap over the three generous back pockets, tapered sleeve cuffs and shaped collar, along with two front zippered pockets, to find itself at home on the bike, but comfortable and low key enough to peruse the cafe or wander the city.
The RECON collection is designed to extend the range of performance apparel. Marrying the highest quality technical materials with urban design queues and a tailored cycling cut, the RECON is equally at home on the dirt roads of Vermont, high alpine climbs of France or the streets of Manhattan. At its heart is pedaling and when the gears begin to turn, performance isn’t compromised.
Velocio utilizes Global Merino® wool- blend fabrics in our new RECON line for its naturally hydrophobic, odor resistant and temperature regulating properties. A world leader in technical wool fabric, Global Merino® creates some of the finest technical fabrics, sourcing sustainably raised wool, and combining them with new technologies. Their commitment to environmental responsibility is underscored by the Bluesign® certification of their manufacturing process and their commitment to making sustainable, long lasting fabrics.
Fit Note: The Men’s RECON Wool Long Sleeve is a slightly more relaxed fit for on and off the bike. If you prefer a closer fit, we recommend sizing down.
