The passion for tradition and for the cycling world of bygone times is represented and embodied by the new Heritage line by Campagnolo Sportswear. Those who choose a garment from the Heritage line want to feel part of the world of Campagnolo through the emotions evoked by history and by the triumphs of the champions of yesteryear. But Campagnolo Sportswear has taken it another step: with the Heritage collection, we have joined the love of tradition with cutting-edge technological solutions, and the HERITAGE WATERPROOF JACKET is a perfect example.
The HERITAGE WATERPROOF JACKET is made of Light Textran™, a material that provides full protection against water and at the same time guarantees optimal breathability. Elasticity and softness give this jacket the maximum comfort. The two-layer fabric is coupled with a 15 mm polyurethane membrane (weight 140 g per square metre), and water column tests have shown that it has an extremely high waterproof factor (12000 mm H2O). Total impermeability is also guaranteed by the heat-sealing of all the seams and the zips (front and back zips, front pocket). The reflective inserts in IQseen™ Technology on the sides, sleeves, and logos make the jacket more visible in the evening, guaranteeing the maximum safety to the rider in low-light situations. The wrist closure consists of a strap with velcro fastening and logo, and reflective inserts. The silicone grip at the hem keeps the jacket in the correct position even when you're bent forward on the bike.
Research on materials with a low environmental impact is also part of this recovery of the values of the past. The material used for constructing the HERITAGE LONG ZIP JERSEY is a practical example. The long zip jersey of the Heritage line is made of Biophil™, a fabric made with a special polymer, comparable to polyester, that derives in large part from corn syrup and substitutes the elements of the yarn that come from petroleum by-products. This type of fabric offers numerous advantages, including easy care and a very soft feel, along with excellent elasticity. Stress tests conducted showed that the smooth yarns made of this polymer are softer than those made of nylon. In addition, the colours remain unaltered over time, also due to the fabric's superior resistance to UV rays. The reflective inserts on the front, back, and sides make the cyclist more visible during the evening hours. The silicon grip at the hem of the jersey helps to keep it in the right position even when you're bent forward on the bike.
In-depth research on fabrics and forms has led to a style where past, present, and future blend together and coexist in a single world. The HERITAGE HALF ZIP JERSEY is a fusion of history and technology. Made of a polyester fibre with a lattice structure, the HERITAGE HALF ZIP JERSEY guarantees the maximum breathability and the utmost comfort. The fabric also features a Polygiene® sanitising treatment which, thanks to the use of special salts in the dyeing process, completely eliminates bacteria and bad odours. The side inserts in mesh piquet foster transpiration and thermal exchange with the outside.
