Made from 61% polyester and 39% merino wool with a full front zipper, the Breukelen is more than just a cold weather cycling jersey. Its classic design is form fitting, with enough room to layer underneath, making it a multi-tasking workhorse for your sports wardrobe.
Wear it on the bike in cool weather, or over a base layer when it’s colder. When winter comes, wear it underneath a jacket for running, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. The polyester/wool-blend fabric wicks moisture and is soft and warm. Extra-long sleeves and a waist gripper guarantee you are covered no matter how you move on or off the bike. And when it’s time to relax afterwards, the eye-catching Breukelen will—well, attract attention. With additional design features like the Road Holland accents on the collar and the contrasting orange placket and trim, you’ll be happy to be seen wearing this jersey around town, running errands or meeting friends for coffee.
But the Breukelen is not just about good looks. Three rear cargo pockets with reflective strips and an external zippered stash pocket for carrying cash or credit cards provide plenty of storage space. For those who like to listen to music while exercising, (not recommended for road cyclists) there’s an earbud pass-through in the middle pocket.
Available in black or the ever popular tungsten at Road Holland. Cost $140 US and worth every penny.
Tired of poorly designed polyester cycling jerseys with promotional ads splashed over them, Jonathan Schneider decided there was a need for something better: serious and stylish cycling gear. In June 2010 he launched Road Holland. Schneider’s goal? To design sturdy cycling jerseys that work hard for you on the bike, with the classic design and snazzy good looks of clothing that’s also suitable for after-bike activities.
