This is the beginning of the Hobble vélo range, a custom jersey made of soft, comfortable Merino wool. Designed not for racing, rather for EVERYTHING ELSE. Whether you ride city, highway or trails… this is one hard working, versatile, quality jersey. We’ve tried hard to create something we hope will become your favourite piece of cycling clothing.
Hand crafted in Sydney by ELEVEN from Woolmark Merino wool, minimalist Black/Grey design featuring a small Hobbledehoy logo on chest and sleeve. Sporting clean generous cuts for comfort and range of motion, with three rear pockets, reinforced to prevent ‘load sag’, an easy-on/easy-off full-length Swiss-made zip and elasticised sleeves and waist. Merino regulates temperature so well we use it as a base layer in Winter and on its own in Summer.
Why use Wool?
Long ago, wool was the material of choice for cycling and other active clothing. In the 80s, synthetics began to replace wool because they were new and shiny, stretchy, cheaper and you could sublimate flashy, detailed graphics onto them which was a nifty thing for teams and shops. But like most things of substance and quality, wool did not die off.
Our jerseys are made from 170gsm superfine Merino wool. 100% Australian grown, spun and woven. Merino fibers are soft and non-irritating even on sensitive skin. Natural thermally regulating – keeps you warm in winter AND cool in summer. Unlike common synthetic jerseys, Merino is naturally anti bacterial and odour free. Cold hand-wash and lay flat to dry for best results. Our jerseys are wool done well, and with proper care will last a long time.
