BORN OUT OF THE PRO PELOTON POLARTEC X LE COL

There’s a unique sensation that comes with the rhythm of the road. When you’re pushing yourself to new limits and everything falls into place: the feeling of wind against your face; the smell of the open road and the calm that comes as every stroke of the pedal feels almost effortless.

Some call it being in zone... for us, it’s Le Col

Founded in 2011 by former Team Great Britain cyclist Yanto Barker, Le Col has grown from one pro-rider’s dream to a global provider of premium cycling apparel for many of the peloton’s fastest spin doctors. Drawing from years of professional racing experience, Yanto and his team set out to design and develop products that deliver unmatched performance, comfort, style and quality. From the use of innovative Polartec® fabrics to precision engineering techniques, every aspect of Le Col’s design process is geared towards one goal: helping cyclists ride faster and further while feeling their best.

 

At Le Col, we believe that every detail matters. That’s why we take a data-driven approach to product development, using insights from professional cyclists and cutting-edge technologies to create the ultimate cycling apparel on the road.” 

Yanto Barker, Founder and CEO Le Col.
