Sportful release UCI World Champion edition Tinkoff replica kit

Limited edition Peter Sagan jersey and bib shorts available to buy

Sportful, clothing supplier to world champion Peter Sagan and the Tinkoff team, have launched a limited edition UCI World Champion version of the team’s BodyFit Pro clothing.

To celebrate Slovakian ace Sagan’s victory in Richmond, Sportful have entered into a licensing agreement with the UCI – who own the rights to the iconic rainbow bands – to produce and sell a replica kit.

It means fans can buy the same rainbow jersey and black Sportful BodyFit Pro shorts Sagan will don during the season, including at the forthcoming Classics.

Available to order from selected retailers from this week, the kit is an exact replica – crafted from the same material – and also includes the BodyFit Pro gloves and socks.

Sportful have now supplied kit for ten world champions, including Johan Museeuw and Mario Cipollini and owner Dario Cremonese said: “It’s a great honour to be given the opportunity to produce the UCI World Champion jersey again, we can’t think of a more exciting rider than Peter Sagan to be the tenth UCI World Champion to be dressed in Sportful.”

Stefano Feltrin, Tinkoff managing director added: “This kit will be worn with pride by cycling fans all over the world.

“Ever since Peter Sagan’s commanding victory last September at the UCI Road World Championships in Richmond, we have been receiving numerous requests to make a replica of his very own jersey available to the general public.

“This is a clear demonstration of the appeal the UCI rainbow jersey has and the popularity of Peter Sagan. We are happy that we have now received the green light to give our fans the possibility to look like a champion.”
