Capo Le Mans Jersey - Men's

For a few product cycles now, Capo has been relying on a stable of tried and true materials that closely resemble--if not outright define--what we think of when we think cycling jerseys. The Le Mans Men's Jersey changes that up, ushering Capo's kit into cycling's future by constructing the main paneling of the brand's new Super Leggera material. The jersey's name is obviously fraught with sporting weight, and we'll get to that, but forgive our inner tech-geek for compelling us to first dwell on this new material. Super Leggera is lightweight, high-stretch, and treated with Coldblack, so it actively works to keep you cool and adds an element of UV protection to the barely-there material. A lot of jersey manufacturers have gone the "lightweight, high-stretch" route, but the added sun protection means the Le Mans takes the extra (and in our opinion necessary) step of reducing the exposure to solar radiation that the less-is-more approach to fabric development often entails. Despite the new headliner material, this is still Capo, so the graphical treatment is obviously a consideration. The Le Mans touches a sweet spot in our non-cycling sport obsessions, as our love of all things velo means we inevitably pay attention to European sports and competitions, and--since there are few events with the gravitas of the jersey's titular 24-hour endurance auto race--you can bet it's on our radar. Le Mans is more or less the motorized version of a grand tour. We're not sure exactly what inspired the jersey's graphical treatment (The view from the cockpit as scenery rushes by, maybe'), but it certainly adds a splash of color to the ever-more black world of cycling jerseys, and we're always happy to pay homage to one of racing's most premier events.

October's Featured Park
Arches National Park is known for its' remarkable natural red sandstone arches. With over 2,000 catalogued arches that range in size from a three-foot opening, to Landscape Arch which measures 306 feet from base to base, the park offers the largest concentration of natural arches in the world.
October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
