    Default VSalon x Wabi Woolens LS Jerseys: Pre-Order Now!

    *A portion of proceeds will go to support VSalon operations and a portion to charity. Please suggest charity. We like Kiva Kiva - Kiva Lending Team: VelocipedeSalon

    Link for pre-order:
    https://wabiwoolens.pinnaclecart.com...-salon-custom/

    Here's the deal: Old school cool. Good looks. Top Quality. Solid function.

    VSalon and Wabi have teamed up for a... wait for it... full zip wool jersey. (thunderous applause)

    The devil is in the details.

    E29E34DB-83AF-4E09-A2A8-2884BCB1291F-4244-0000040E21326FF6.jpg

    We've taken Harth's experience and expertise and added our own sense of style/pride/we're better than everyone else/ what have you.

    This black full-zip jersey features gold Velocipede V details on the breast and arm. Fred Perry on acid. Gonzo would approve.

    The back of the jersey is chock full o' VSalon style. The back features a gold (because we're ballers) stripe above the pockets. Stripes are fast, duh. And Rapha hasn't thought to put one there; dummies.

    A full, House-designed, Velocipede Salon logo graces the back, middle, zippered pocket creating the all new, patent pending, why didn't I think of that... wait for it... Stiffy BP. Like your favorite chamois, Stiffy BP keeps your junk in place. Besides, some people like a little somethin' back there; and who are we to judge?

    Timeless. An instant classic. Dope. Collabo's are all the rage with the kids these days.

    Order one and show some love to the V-place. Ballers order a six pack.

    Hugs,

    VS

    I'd like to thank Nierman, Chase and Harth who collectively possess a complete intelligence to create something this good.
    Honestly, the Wabi construction is the only wool jersey I've ever used that does not sag and has attention to details lacking in other products.
    Harth has done things like adding some construction to the collar bottom so that when the jersey is zipped it pulls together and keeps proper form.
    For the folks who ride alot you are going to freakin' love the Stiffy BP. In transitional weather we all love to carry a windproof/waterproof light weight jacket. When conditions change you roll it up and stuff that suck'r in your middle back pocket...got it? The Stiffy BP is designed specifically to maintain order.
    Credit to Chase and Nierman for the pimp-a-lishious graphics.
    This is pretty loud and trust me there will never be a VSalon kit but we had to do this.
    Buy early and buy often.
    PS - Coming Soon a matching hat to go with.

    very nice - a pump pocket/sleeve in the middle pocket would be nice - Rapha did think of that

    Yes and no. This is not a pump pocket per se. The entire pocket has been reinforced to withstand overstuffing. Thanks.

    True, that would be a nice feature. I am just starting to realize how many people carry pumps that way, as I'm still a framepump kinda guy. Will be considered for future Wabi jerseys but for now, this is the absolute bestest we have to offer.

    Chase is sporting a size Large.

    Please don't hesitate to contact me with fit/sizing questions or any other questions, for that matter (about Wabi, that is, for all other topics, I will forward them on to Chase).

    Hard to tell. I wear a Large Wabi and an XL Rapha, but it is a close call. Email me your height, weight and chest size for the best recommendation. harth (at) wabiwoolens.com

    6' 1" with long wingspan but shorter torso - weight about 165. Size L fits perfect. Superior product in every way I have used it.
    Start slow, then taper off.

    High mountains. Nearby islands. Be glad it's the sport series, not winter series.

    (Oh, do you dive? Good baselayer for a drysuit, too...)

    I'm getting a lot of good questions about fit and sizing, and all Wabi wearers out there, please offer your experience in Wabi sizing to the folks at home. For reference, the Large is designed to fit me, and I am 6'1" 190lbs with a 41 chest. There is plenty of room in the chest for broader folks, for sure. I like it snug, and a lot of people size up to get a looser fit. But Chase is wearing a large in that photo and it seems to fit him well, too, and I am willing to bet he is nowhere near 190!

    Here is a photo of me wearing a well-worn short sleeved version in size Large, just to give you an idea of fit around the torso: Wabi Woolens - Cycling Wear | Facebook

    My buddy, in the other photo, is 5'10 and a muscular 160 and he wears a medium perfectly.

    And while you are at that facebook page, please do me a favor and hit that Like button! Unless, of course, you don't like it, then ignore it.
