The all new PEZ Kit has just arrived in the mailboxes of our journos worldwide with our man in France, Chris Selden the first one to try it out this weekend, “The look may be retro but the comfort is certainly not. The bibshorts are super comfy and will definitely be my first choice of kit for the rest of this season.”
Chris taking a moment’s rest during his weekend ride at the Pont du Diable, France in his new Castelli PEZ kit.
Last week I posted my review of Castelli’s Training Fit jersey and Team bibshorts. These models are available only through their custom order program, and incorporate all of Castelli’s knowledge for design, fit, materials and construction.
As a long time fan of the brand, I was pretty happy when we got a chance to work with Castelli on our own custom kit for PEZ, and although it took me a while to dial the design, Castelli delivered my order in 5 weeks (which is very fast in the world of custom orders).
I ordered a few extras in hopes that some PEZ-Fans would like the new look, and want to wear it too. The jerseys and bibs are now in stock and ready to ship in the PEZShop – so take a look and get yourself one of the few kits available.
The ‘SUPER 80’s’ look is inspired by the Renault Elf team of that great era:
• Bernard Hinault – there was no tougher cyclist and likely never will be.
• Laurent Fignon – only as I got older and understood the man better, did I fully appreciate him as a truly great cyclist, sports figure and personality.
As team mates at Renault Elf in the early 80’s they cut quite a swath – some unquantifiable measure of cool, tough guy resolve, swashbuckling bravado, and talent. The perfect pillars for everything we love about cycling. Kit this cool could only be made by a company with legacy of equal grinta – Castelli of course.
The new designs have landed and are in stock now but quantities are limited so get yours now and get ready to be admnired.
