Regular price 799 kr

Only 5 items in stock!

A no-nonsense looks-good-anywhere jersey. This Sigr signature cycling jersey is on the subtler side of our 2019 collection, and comes in a luscious deep purple. It has all the details any discerning rider is looking for, and its understated class makes it ideal for cool morning urban rides.

This cycling jersey is named after a flower that blooms in late summer and has bright purple flowers (known as Hydrangea in English).

Legend has it that the French botanist and explorer Philbert Commerson was on a voyage of exploration through Asia where only men were allowed. Philbert couldn't bear to be parted from his wife Hortense Barré, and so smuggled her along on the voyage dressed as a man pretending to be his servant. She was eventually discovered during the voyage but by that time it was too late to remove her. In 1759 he discovered and brought a beautiful flower back to Europe. Guess what he named it? After the lovely Hortense of course.

Hortensia is one of the few flowers to be named after a woman. We really like that.

The Sigr Story

In times like these it’s the little choices we make that can affect life on a global scale. At Sigr, located way up in the north of Sweden, everything we do is centred around two things: equality and our planet.

We always try to make choices that reduce the impact on this beautiful, inspirational planet we call home. We use 100% digital prototyping and 100% recycled fabric wherever possible. We create sustainable nordic designs with a focus on longevity rather than the changeable whims of fashion. Don't get us wrong - we like making gear that looks great. But it’s gear that will last. Season after season.

Equality in cycling is something we also passionately believe in. Whether it's providing the same designs for men and women or sponsoring the Swedish Tour - a race through Sweden that’s more inclusive than many other big name races we could mention.

We believe cycling is just awesome. For you, for us and for the environment. So let's saddle up and hit the open roads together.
