Check out these cool pro team T-shirts from Prendas

Abstract designs are inspired by the colours of cycling's biggest pro teams, and we like them a lot

Prendas Ciclismo  has collaborated with Pro Cycling Trumps on a collection of T-shirts inspired by the colours of cycling’s biggest professional teams… and we reckon they’re very cool.

Let’s be honest, the stylishness of many cycling T-shirts is, um, questionable. We have to say, though, that these designs are a big hit in the office.

Prendas T-shirt FDJ (1).jpeg

They’re all pretty abstract. The Groupama–FDJ T-shirt, for example, features the team’s blue, white and red colours (or blue, blanc, rouge, if you want to be all French about it) in a random criss-cross design.

The Astana T-shirt is a diamond design in team colours.

Prendas T-shirt Ineos Grenadiers (1).jpeg

And the Ineos Grenadiers one will be recognisable to those who follow pro racing.

Prendas T-shirts Bingoal Pauwels Sauces WB (1).jpeg

Each T-shirt features the UCI code for the relevant team: COF for Cofidis, BWB for Bingoal Pauwels Sauces WB (above), LIV for Liv Racing-Xstra, and so on.

There’s no other indication that the T-shirts are cycling related, although those in the know will get the association.

Prendas T-shirt Team Jumbo-Visma women's (1).jpeg

One particular favourite is the JVW design inspired by the Team Jumbo-Visma women's team colours. Very chic. 

Prendas T-shirt Lotto-Soudal (1).jpeg

Oh, and the Lotto-Soudal one is neat too.

Anyway, head over to the Prendas website to see the lot. Men’s and women’s teams are included. 

The T-shirts are made for 100% organic cotton (155g/m2) and are “printed in the UK in a renewable energy-powered factory”. They’re available for worldwide shipping at a price of £25 each.

"...or blue, blanc, rouge, if you want to be all French about it" - I think you've been two thirds French about that.

Just off to polish my wing mirrors, for which I have no license.

Come ride with us, forever and ever..

The JVW looks a lot like the geometric pattern carpet that Danny rides his tricycle on through the hotel hallways in the Shining.

They're very stylish, and a little cryptic too, so you could wear one without giving anyone any free advertising, which I know is a consideration for some people.

There are 46 of them, which at £25 each works out at £1150 for the set, though I'm sure they'd knock that down to a grand if you asked nicely.
