To commemorate our journey over the Alps for the L'Etape du Tour in 2022, we have released a special capsule collection calledProject '86.Why '86? The parcours, which will be covered by the peloton a few days later on Bastille Day, is legendary. The Col du Galibier, Col de la Croix de Fer and the mythic Alpe d'Huez, is a replica of the same course which sawGreg Lemond and Bernard Hinaultcross the finish line hand in hand in Stage 18 of the 1986 Tour de France. Teammates, Rivals, Legends. This moment in cycling history cemented LeMond as the first American to win the Tour de France and was a shift in globalising professional cycling.
The design inspiration comes from the Mondrian patterns of the La Vie Claire cycling Team in which both Lemond "L'Americain" and Hinault "Le Blaireau" were Teammates. The Project '86 Cap is equal parts style and function. Keep the mid-summer sun out of your eyes while taking on those mythic cols. On or off the bike, this cap will turn heads.
To produce our cap, we turned once again to California based, Jakroo. They utilize the best technical materials on the planet and work closely with suppliers to find the edge in performance materials. Their turnaround time is unmatched as well in the custom kit world.
Full luft? Peak Up, peak down, indoor or outdoor, our Project '86 cap looks great paired with our Jersey and Bibs.
