The Lion of Flanders pattern was designed while watching Johan Museeuw in a 40k solo break to win Paris - Roubaix on VHS . A simple pattern, a clean look, with a nod to the classics and a quote from the man himself in the collar.
"you feel nothing, you hear nothing, you see nothing. there is only one purpose: as fast as possible to the finish.you go through the wall, far beyond the pain threshold. you are at a moment alone in the world - in a trance as it were."
Minneapolis cycling anomaly Jay "Hollywood" Henderson aided in the design as he is passionate about the lion, cycling, and the color black. The top stitching will draw the smiles of the enthusiast, and the fit and finish will do the same for you.
Sizing: DL Short Sleeve Jerseys are designed for cyclists looking for a more pro or race fit jersey. They are designed to be snug, but never tight (due to the Italian mesh panels on the sides and back). They will not cut off your circulation, but if you are looking for something baggy, this is probably not the right jersey (or order 2 sizes too big).
The white fabric is the ultimate lightweight material, white to reflect the sun, supple, durable (mountain biker test group selected it for its non snagging properties), and breathable. White is so Pro, keep it clean and ride clean. If you crash give it to your kid brother and get a new one.
The Black fabric is the Rouleur, a bit thicker than the white with a touch less stretch and a cool crown pattern. Black and will attract the sun as well as the opposite sex, but fashion hurts so shut up and stop bitching. Remember black is thinning.
Sleeves: the sleeves are long on the short sleeve jersey, they are designed to cover 75% of your biceps. We did this on purpose; we love the feel and the look.
Some people have requested shorter sleeves for skin tanning reasons. We named our hats after a skin cancer survivor, our goal is not more sun exposure but a bad ass looking jersey. Our general stance is that looking cool on a bike is way more important than increasing the risk of skin cancer.
When Henry Ford asked people what they wanted they told him a faster horse.
