Five in '70.
No name surfaces in the greatest ever conversation as often as Merckx, a fact demonstrated by the Roubaix 70 Cotton Polo Jersey. It celebrates the 1970 edition of the Hell of the North, in which Merckx taught a young De Vlaeminck what it takes to win the race. In doing so, Merckx himself took five minutes out of the rising star.
The Roubaix 70 is a throwback faux-jersey that's actually more of a fan piece than anything we'd want to be riding in for any serious amount of time. It's retro styling includes buttons, a proper polo collar, three rear pockets, and—of course—Faema-inspired branding retooled with The Cannibal's own name.
- A casual jersey made for fans relaxing out of the saddle
- Cotton construction is light, but not for cycling
- Retro jersey appointments recreate the greatest's kit, if not his engine
