Ahead of the coming 2021 season, the OBC is delighted to announce that we are offering our members an all-new, limited-production run of a classic merino wool long-sleeve cycling jersey.
This very special premium jersey has been commissioned by the OBC to mark our golden anniversary year and will be produced by Cima Coppi of Oviedo, Spain, a high-end specialty cycling clothing manufacturer.
Cima Coppi was founded in 2008 by Lawrence, a Canadian, and Patricia, a Spaniard, in the Little Italy neighbourhood of Vancouver, British Columbia. In 2015, they decided to relocate to Europe, moving all their machinery across the Atlantic to Oviedo, a small city in northern Spain nestled in the foothills of the Cantabrian Mountains.
The OBC is using Cima Coppi’s popular Varsity Jersey design to produce our own custom 50th anniversary long-sleeve garment. The Varsity is a chest-zip jumper featuring block-letter club embroidery across the front and upper back. The double arm racing stripes and heritage features acknowledge the classic look of a wool thermal sporting café racer. This long sleeve jersey features a traditional tailored slim cut, raglan sleeves, and is sustainably made in-house in Oviedo. It is built to last using 285 gram 'midweight' 100% merino wool.
The OBC is taking pre-orders for these jerseys until Friday January 15th, 2021. The expected price per unit will be €120.00. This price excludes HST, import duties and shipping. We will not be placing an order with Cima Coppi unless we meet the minimum order threshold of 50 units, which will guarantee the Club this price.
We strongly encourage you to refer to the Cima Coppi sizing guide before you order. The sizing guide is available below. Garments may not be exchanged or refunded.
