For cyclists, the Tour de France is our Paris Fashion Week. We get to watch the world’s best riders pedal to the home of high fashion and strut their stuff, but instead of ogling their road bikes and kits on the runway, we do it over 21 stages and 2,000 miles from the Grand Départ to the Champs-Élysées.
To celebrate this year’s Tour, we’re offering 25% off Mavic apparel with the code MAVIC25. Like the fashion houses of Chanel and Hermès, Mavic is a legendary French institution with over a century of history. It offers a huge selection of helmets, jerseys, shorts, shoes, and more. Here are some of my favorite pieces. You probably aren’t a pro racer, but with some Mavic kit, you can definitely look as good as one.
The Comete Ultimate is a sleek aero helmet that not only looks fast, but slices through the wind so you can ride fast too. If it’s time to pull a Mathieu van der Poel and dabble in mountain biking, the Deemax Pro and Crossride have you covered.
Jerseys & jackets
The lightweight Cosmic Gradiant jersey will keep you cool through the hot French summer while the Allroad and Allroad wind will tackle shoulder-season gravel rides. Don’t forget a lightweight Cosmic Ultimate GTX jacket to handle stormy weather — the type you might encounter racing in the Alps and Pyrenees.
The Ksyrium and Cosmic bibs use Mavic’s Ergo 3D Pro chamois for a super-plush feel on long-distance rides. Flatlock seams prevent chafing and while its special fabric provides extra support and cooling. These bibs will keep your backside feeling fresh, even after racing over 2,000 miles.
The Cosmic SL Ultimate will conquer hors catégorie climbs with a stiff Energy Full SLR Outsole and supportive TPU frame laser-welded to ultralight mesh panels. If you need a change of pace after a packed road season, the Crossmax Elite will provide traction for cyclocross and cross-country racing with its Energy Grip Terra outsole and reinforced toe cap.
Gloves & socks
Finish off your look with gloves and socks to match your kit. The Cosmic Classic fingerless gloves look clean and pro. Essential Long Finger gloves give you extra protection for off-road adventures. Throw in some colorful socks and you’ll be the envy of the peloton.
