First Look: Cervo Rosso Cycling Apparel
Cervo Rosso is a new apparel line for cyclists that is taking the industry by storm. From magazine covers to your local races, this new high end manufacturer of jerseys, bibs and assorted apparel are looking to up the ante of what is expected of the garments that get you to the end of your ride or race. While the European markets are swallowing up everything Cervo Rosso has to offer, expansion for the company is looking towards US markets to give us a taste of this new cycling apparel brand.
Born and bred in Switzerland, Cervo Rosso captures the bygone era of European cycling by combining the beautiful heritage of the sport with the most technically advanced fabrics and styling available. The end result being performance cycling wear at it’s very best.
What you wear on your bike matters to us
At Cervo Rosso our passion is road cycling. Every Cervo Rosso product is put into the hands of professional riders past and present, where performance and durability are tested to the limit. Additionally styling and design input are provided by those who share an intimate passion for cycling and understand the individual statement performance cycling wear can make. Whether it is competitive racing or inner city commuting, style, passion and performance reflect our product range.
The Cervo Rosso Collection
At Cervo Rosso we source the finest technical fabrics available no matter where they are found in the world. Additionally we manufacture in multiple locations worldwide including New Zealand, Italy and Great Britain. This is a deliberate choice to ensure we have the highest possible level of expertise and technical know how specific to the functional requirement and the fabric included each of products.
First Impression: Cervo Rosso Cycling Apparel
Cervo Rosso sent over their National Pride (Swiss) jersey and the Team bib shorts for review on Bike198. Packed in a nice red bag, these jersey’s and bib’s feel incredible to the touch. A soft, almost silk-like feel to the fabric and extremely high quality stitching really separates these from other kits laying around the office.
Personally, the high contrast, simpler design really plays to my tastes given the more wild designs I have seen on jerseys as of late. The simple red, black and white color scheme with the Swiss cross on the arm band rocks.
We are going to put some miles in on the kit (and numerous trips through the washing machine) to see how they hold up and their comfort level on the road. Stay tuned for more as we put these premium, performance cycling apparel pieces through the paces over the coming weeks.
