Range to include full winter kit and again play upon cycling's heritage

Sir Bradley Wiggins has furthered his collaboration with British cycling clothing brand Le Col, launching its 'Le Col by Wiggins' autumn/winter range.

The 2012 Tour de France champion first teamed up with the brand earlier this summer, releasing a collection of jerseys, bibshorts and accessories inspired by Wiggins's favourite professional teams between the 1960s and 1990s.

They have now teamed up again, this time with a selection of long sleeve jerseys and winter bibs with Wiggins commenting that the range, again, acts as a 'showcase of my style and heritage'.

'We found a design and colour scheme that we felt worked really well in the spring/summer collection and wanted to make subtle changes for this upcoming range,' Wiggins said.

'I wanted to design a range that has the best possible protection with designs inspired by jerseys made famous by 1960s and 1970s Classics Winners.

'I've borrowed that historic imagery and feel of the epic conditions that set these races apart, with fabric quality that those winners could only dream of. Le Col is simply the best technical kit on the market and to bring my personal flair to the range is a perfect match.'

The range, on sale here, will predominantly consist of three new long-sleeve jerseys across the three differing fits offered by Le Col - HC, Pro and Sport - with the latter two being offered in three separate colourways. Prices vary from £140 to £300.

There will also be the option of thermal bibtights and bibshorts, merino socks and even a long sleeve baselayer etched with Wiggins's name across the neck.

Prices range from £15 for the socks to £160 for the shorts.

This is the latest instalment of Wiggins into the cycling sphere which has also recently seen a touring two-man show, a podcast and new book, Icons, as the rider attempts to put the 'Jiffygate' scandal in the past. 

Additionally, in this month's issues of Cyclist, Wiggins gives an exclusive look at his collection of jerseys and bikes from cycling's past, on sale now.
