Fabian Cancellara really needs no introduction. The Swiss cycling legend has a palmarès longer than most and had a professional career topped with multiple rainbow bands and culminating in Olympic glory in 2016. He is still heavily involved in cycling and has been a long-time brand ambassador and product tester for Gore Wear helping the brand to develop and shape its cycling kit. Whilst this partnership has helped develop many top performing products this new collection is the first to actually bear Cancellara’s name.
Comprising of eight pieces, the Gore Wear Cancellara Collection has many unique features that have been developed in conjunction with Fabian’s vast experience of racing. Each piece also has detailing that pay homage to the rider nicknamed ‘Spartacus’. The central design element of the Cancellara kit is a “heptagon” the idea originating from the number 7; the number of Spring Classics victories Fabian Cancellara won, his prologue victory on the Tour de France (7/7/2007) and the shape of a cobblestone, a terrain in which he excelled on.
Predominantly used as a discreet print element, the heptagon also features in small details like the jersey zippers. The “orbit blue” colour is truly stunning and Cancellara’s personal choice. It is repeated across the entire collection
The collection is divided into two distinct tiers following Gore’s race oriented C7 and best-selling C5 ranges.
C7 Cancellara Socks €19.95
The entire Cancellara collection will be available to buy from today, 18th March 2020.
