The Maglia Nera windproof vest is the ultimate bit of versatile kit. Perfect for the Northern European weather, you won't want to leave the house without it! We're thrilled to be working with our friends Attacus Custom on the newly designed La Maglia Nera 2.0 kit, and we know you're going to love it.

Why 'Maglia Nera', you ask? At the Giro d'Italia the last placed rider is awarded the 'Maglia Nera' (black jersey) for finishing in last place. It's a huge honour, meaning they haven't had to drop out or abandon the race. It is our core philosophy that no one is ever dropped or left behind, even if you are in last place or at the back of the group! Somehow, the 'Maglia Nera' felt right as the name of our club kit!

This pre-order closes on Friday 1st July at 10AM UK time. All jerseys will be made to order, and are expected to arrive at Attacus HQ in late October. They will then be posted via Royal Mail First Class inside the UK or Royal Mail International Tracked outside of the UK. Delivery times will vary depending on location.

The Foundation Windproof Vest: Features & Fabrics

We believe the foundation of any good piece of cycling kit is comfort. So we’ve created a collection that puts comfort at its core. The culmination of almost three years of research and development, this collection has become a trusted go-to for multi day endurance athletes and casual cafe spinners alike. Expertly tailored to be comfortably close fitting, these cycling wardrobe staples really are the perfect all-rounders.

  • Windproof vest made with premium, technical fabric designed to move and stretch with your body
  • Two-way zip means you can unzip this vest from the bottom up, aiding body temperature control and providing better access to jersey pockets 
  • Waterproof and windproof front panel and shoulders
  • Flexible mesh back panel for ventilation
  • High neck for when the weather turns cooler
  • Lightweight so it'll pack down into your jersey pocket
  • All of our women's garments are designed, tested and tailored by a team of experienced female cyclists and clothing experts, including our own Attacus co-founder, so you can trust you're buying products developed specifically for female-focused comfort and fit
  • Front panels: Italian-made lightweight, windproof fabric with 100% waterproof membrane
  • Back panel: Italian-made lightweight, breathable stretch mesh
  • Made in Italy

“Clothing keeps us warm by trapping warm air next to our skin. But when you’re on a bike travelling at speed, the force of cold air or wind can obliterate that warmth you’ve built up. It’s why having a reliable, thin, packable windproof layer is a godsend, especially for spring and autumn riding when temperatures can fluctuate hour on hour. The Foundation Windproof Vest contains a thin membrane barrier that blocks cold air and water, while allowing warm air to continue circulating around your core. So it’s perfect for popping in your back pocket and calling on when the temperature drops. Like with all of our women’s garments, it’s been carefully designed and optimized for female riders. Working with expert seamstresses, we took bust, waist, hip and height measurements from a cross section of real riders to find commonalities in fit. We then used our findings to carefully develop a brand new sizing model uniquely tailored for women.”

Emily Childs, Managing Director and Head of Women’s Product Development at Attacus

While we do our best to accurately display the true colours of our garments in all photography on our website, sometimes the actual colour may vary in real life. This is because every computer/phone monitor has a different capability to display colours, and that everyone sees these colours differently.

Women's Size Guide

The technical fabrics in this jersey are designed for movement, and will naturally stretch. It's why you may find you fit into more than one size bracket. So to help you find the best fit for you, we recommend you follow the steps below.

    1. CHEST: Start by measuring your chest/bust all the way around at the fullest part with your arms by your sides. Then use this number to see which size options you fall into from our size chart below.
    2. WAIST AND HIPS: Next, measure your waist all the way around. Then measure your hips, about where your hip bone sits. Then use these numbers to see where you fall on our size chart. If your measurements put you in two different size brackets, we'd recommend opting for the larger size.
    3. ZIP LENGTH: Use the number in the zip length column to work out how each size will fit on you, and make sure you're happy with the lengths. Keep in mind that our Foundation Vest has a high collar, so the zip will start just below your chin.
    4. FIT: Consider how you want your kit to fit. Do you fall into more than one size bracket? If so, think about how close fitting you like your kit to be. Whether you like it super tight or prefer it a little looser, make sure your chosen size reflects how you like to wear it.
    5. STILL IN DOUBT? GET IN TOUCHIf you're still unsure, email us on and we'll be happy to assist you. We'll always start by asking if you've measured yourself and where your measurements put you on our size chart, so it's definitely worth doing this first. We may then be able to offer a bit of extra guidance on how it'll fit.
