The Belgian champion's jersey in the Molteni version. This comfortable aerodynamic cycling jersey is a replica of the National Champion jersey of Belgium. This shirt has been worn by two riders from the Molteni team. Eddy Merckx wore it in 1971 when he joined Molteni and Herman Springel could take over the jersey from his famous teammate after winning the National title himself. Herman wore the National Tricolore in 1971-1972.
The Italian professional cycling team Molteni was active in the cycling world for a long time, from 1958 to 1976. Molteni was a salami producer based in Arcore, in the region of Milan. The team won 663 stages in total.
The RedTed cycling jersey has an aerodynamic cut (so it's a bit tighter), a high quality YKK zip, a wide elastic band at the end of the slightly longer sleeves, a silicone band at the bottom with an extra wide elastic band at the front, and a long front zip (also available in short). A performance jersey for a great price.
The RedTed Performance cycling shorts have a perfect fit and are very comfortable. The shorts are made of different layers. The first layer is a comfortable and breathable fabric (Lycra) that can be worn directly on the skin. The chamois of RedTed Performance is widened so that irritation in the groin area is less likely. The second layer is an elastic shock absorbing silicone pad with laser perforation and gutters for sweat dispersion. The third layer is, again, a breathable fabric. The shorts are extremely comfortable and have good freedom of movement. At the end of the shorts is a wide elastic band, which is equipped with silicone grip. Thanks to this and the suspender straps, the bib shorts stay perfectly in place.
