An epic All-Azzurra Story

Imola, Italy. September 1, 1968. For the conquest of the rainbow jersey, two great favorites are on the starting line: Merckx and Gimondi. With an incredible athletic performance, at approximately 90 kilometers from the finish, Vittorio Adorni breaks away from the group and wins the Road World Championship with a record that still stands today. A record of an astounding 9 minutes and 50 seconds. 55 years after that epic achievement, the 1968 Italy jersey aims to celebrate one of the most incredible chapters in this sport's history.

True to the Original

An iconic jersey that faithfully replicates the exact construction process, made from 100% pure virgin wool using old-school knitting machines, in the same shade of classic 'Italy' blue. It features the same Italian emblem, first embroidered onto a piece of fabric and then meticulously sewn using a chain stitch. It also boasts the same nylon zipper and the classic pocket arrangement. Rigorously Made in Italy.
