The Velits broth­ers, both pro cy­clists on the World­tour, cre­ated Isadore in 2011. ‘Af­ter a cou­ple of years on the pro cy­cling cir­cuit, not that we were get­ting bored, we felt like it would be healthy to get out of the “bub­ble” and fo­cus on some other projects too,’ says CEO Mar­tin Velits. ‘To start a cy­cling cloth­ing brand seemed log­i­cal as both Peter and I have many years of ex­pe­ri­ence wear­ing cy­cling kit, so we wanted to cre­ate ap­parel that pro cy­clists would want to wear if they didn’t have to wear spon­sored stuff.’

The Climbers range is the lat­est ad­di­tion to Isadore’s col­lec­tion. ‘All the Climbers jer­seys are in­spired by a moun­tain we have some sort of re­la­tion­ship with,’ says Velits. ‘I rode the Angliru a cou­ple of times dur­ing the Vuelta and just love it.’

As the name sug­gests, the kit per­forms best when you’re work­ing up a sweat on a hot day in the moun­tains. The jersey is an es­pe­cially light merino blend and the shorts are treated with Cold­black UV pro­tec­tion, and they’re best paired with the mul­ti­lay­ered Medio Mem­brane gilet, also new at £120. Is-adorable.
