This year First Ascent is proud to announce our development of the leader's jerseys, based on the concept of the new First Ascent Pro Elite Cycling Jersey Range launching in August this year. These jerseys combine high-quality fabric with innovative design, to deliver a jersey worthy of been called a leader in its field.
Leader's jerseys are synonymous with all great stage races, awarded to the leader of that classification at the end of every stage, riders who carry these jerseys are crowned champions. From pink to bright yellow, these jerseys will be hard to miss on the trails of Ceres, keep an eye out for this year's leaders!
“We were given a brief to create a range of leader’s jerseys that were not the typical solid colours. The colours selected were bold and bright, easily recognizable for the supporter. Keeping with the brief of developing a jersey that was not just a solid colour, we incorporated different textures by using different shades of the jersey colour and bringing in mesh onto the sleeve, which did not only add texture but also serves as a functional purpose. It was crucial that the sponsor’s logos were clear and visible, making it a key part in the design process – First Ascent Designer, Lauren”
