With the world’s biggest gravel race this weekend (Unbound), the world’s most famous Grand Tour kicks off in less than one month, the Tour de France. With the countdown started, the themed merchandise and “official products” for the La Grande Boucle are also launching. If yellow is your thing, it’s a great time to stock up and sport the leader’s jersey color.
The Tour de France is the world’s most revered and followed multi-stage cycle race. Its winners are guaranteed a place in history as all-time cycling greats. Witnessing seven victories from four different athletes, there is every right to celebrate such a success in a special way. Helping drive team Sky, now Ineos Grenadiers, towards victory by supplying helmets to the team’s athletes including Bradley Wiggins (2012), Chris Froome (2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017), Geraint Thomas (2018) and Egan Bernal (2019), all of whom have sported the yellow jersey on the Champs-Élysées, the Italian company celebrates the extraordinary run of victories by creating a limited edition Valegro ‘Tour De France’, the official helmet for the Tour de France in 2022.
3,328 KILOMETERS OF UNIQUE HISTORY
The Valegro was originally created for the 2017 Tour. Designed to be lightweight and super-ventilated, it provides maximum air flow during the hot and humid July days on the climbs through the Alps and Pyrenees. This year, as an official Tour de France 2022 product, the new Valegro Tour de France offers a unique graphic with a special meaning. Seven parallel yellow lines follow one another across a white helmet, forming a road representing the seven historic Tour victories the riders have achieved wearing KASK
Together with the KASK and Tour de France logos, the 3,328 truly unique pieces, one for every kilometer of the 2022 race, include a progressive number printed on the back. Owners of each helmet will have their very own personal kilometer of this year’s race.
MAXIMUM VENTILATION, MINIMUM WEIGHT
The Valegro offers optimum thermo-ventilation performance, thanks to its 37 ventilation holes. With its incredible lightness, weighing in at only 180 grams (size S), it features internal Resistex Carbon lining, which is antistatic, breathable and quick-drying, guaranteeing maximum breathability and comfort.
The limited-edition model will be available worldwide in sizes S to L, except in Australia where only sizes M and L will be on sale.
The price for a Limited Edition Valegro ‘Tour de France’ is $299.
