Le Col launches 10-year anniversary collection to celebrate Sir Bradley Wiggins – Gear
Performance cycling apparel brand Le Col has announced the launch of a 10-year anniversary collection celebrating brand ambassador Sir Bradley Wiggins.
Both designs represent each of the elements of Wiggins’ Golden Summer of 2012. Wiggins and the Le Col team collaborated on the designs and messages behind the collection, ensuring a focus on this season on the road.
The Le Col by Wiggins Legend jersey celebrates Wiggins’ victory in the London 2012 Olympic time trial, with the result written on the back pocket. The Champion of 2012 jersey includes details such as Wiggins’ Tour number 101 on the back pockets.
Both jerseys are available in Hors Categorie lines, woven with four-way stretch fabrics that are lightweight and soft to the touch. They’re also available in the Sport specification, which features a slightly more relaxed fit. Each jersey is available in men’s and women’s sizes.
The collection also includes a cycling cap available in white and navy, both matching their corresponding jersey. Cycling socks are also available, in white and navy options to match the jersey. The socks use a technical honeycomb structure to increase breathability, compression and comfort.

The Col was founded by former British cyclist Yanto Barker. The kit is designed and developed in London and produced in Le Col’s own Italian factory in the shadow of Monte Grappa.
Earlier this year, the brand announced the launch of a limited-edition Fabian Cancellara collection, including two jerseys, two cycling shorts, a cap and socks.
The Col also recently announced a new collaboration with Bluelight Cycling Club, a non-profit cycling organization that supports emergency services, the NHS and the armed forces. The brand has worked closely with the Bluelight team to create a bespoke cycling kit which is now available to all of its members.
