HOY Vulpine Spring/Summer 2016 Range with New Keirin Inspired Collection
The HOY Vulpine crew recently dropped their SS16 range and it’s just what you’d expect—clean, fresh, and cut like it was tailored for you. If Vulpine is for ride + destination, then HOY Vulpine is certainly all about the ride. Okay, maybe destination as well, if your destination is the mid-ride cake/coffee stop before heading back out on the road.

I’d love to say a bit about each of these pieces but they’ve done so well with that on their site you might as well go to the source. Check out the HOY Vulpine page for more info.
HOY Vulpine Launches SS16 Range with New Keirin Inspired Collection
−Includes new Keirin-inspired Senko collection; introduced to cater for those looking for high-end performance cycling kit.
−Created in collaboration with Sir Chris HoyHOY Vulpine have today [Thursday 15 March] launched their new Spring/Summer 2016 road range, which includes a new Keirin-inspired Senko collection; introduced to cater for those looking for high-end performance cycling kit.The Senko Collection, named after the Japanese term for a daring attack during a Keirin race, includes the HOY Vulpine Senko Jersey, HOY Vulpine Senko bib-short and HOY Vulpine Senko vest (women only). Presented simply, without shouting its credentials, the Senko range is laser cut and constructed from quality, lightweight Italian fabric for a smooth aerodynamic race fit. The elite level aero bib shorts use the highest specification CyTech pad to ensure comfort for long days in the saddle and wide leg grippers to prevent the shorts from digging in and marking.For those looking for more relaxed cycling gear, the HOY Vulpine Sportive range offers a more forgiving, less race orientated fit.The HOY Vulpine Sportive Jersey is tailored for all day riding comfort. Paired with the HOY Vulpine Sportive Bib Short, built around a professional level CyTech pad, they should prove to be the perfect summer sportive and social ride combination. Also added to the range are HOY Vulpine Sportive Mitts, with soft but tough palms for long distance road riding.Even at the height of summer, the British weather remains infamously changeable, which is where the Portixol Rain Jacket comes in to its own. Fully waterproof and yet extremely breathable, with large unique dorsal vents down its side, it is light enough to wear in the summer. The Portixol should be on every cyclist’s essentials list – whatever the time of year.Throughout all of the HOY Vulpine range, the technical aspects and sizing are tailored for each gender.
Sir Chris Hoy worked closely alongside Vulpine founder, Nick Hussey and the rest of the team to develop the range and test the products. Both he and Nick personally tested all garments through every phase of research and development, offering continual feedback.
“I have always wanted to create a clothing range that would suit any cyclist, whatever their shape or size, so it’s great that we can now offer a sportive range right through to a performance range with HOY Vulpine,” said Sir Chris Hoy.
Hoy continued: “Developing the Senko range has been a detailed but enjoyable collaborative effort with myself and the team at Vulpine and I’m really proud of what we have produced. The kit looks great and the technical capabilities of the kit far exceed the price point.”
Nick Hussey, Creative Director and Founder of Vulpine said: “Chris and I are both from a racing background, obviously of somewhat varying levels, but we have a shared passion to create beautiful kit, with fantastic materials and technology, but simply presented. The word we’d use to describe our range is ‘classy’; we want each piece to make a more subtle style statement, yet completely nail the fit and function, with outstanding attention to detail. Comfort and performance moved on, quietly. The results make us hugely proud.”
