AC Mardennes Race Vest

We’ve been chomping at the bit to make a Classics-style kit for some time, but the industry-wide obsession with the Belgian tricolor and the Vlaamse Leeuw gave us pause. Has the Lion of Flanders jumped the shark? Perhaps. While researching the Amstel Gold Race, the first of the Ardennes Classics, we read up on the tiny sliver of Dutch hill country the race takes place in: Limburg. A chunk of ground with history deeper than most anyone can remember, traded between kings, presidents, parliaments, dukes, and dictators, tucked between Flanders and Germany.

Turns out, Limburg also has a lion. And a tricolor. What better way to commemorate the unheralded Classic? With our friends at DNA Cycling, we set to work splaying the new classic livery on Italian lycra. This is the Mardennes kit, our bad portmanteau paired with excellent design.

The DNA Race Vest is a lightweight, packable vest with wind/water resistant construction. Perfect for chilly mornings that turn into blistering afternoons, it also features a high collar, three rear pockets, dual zipper, and an identical design to the short sleeve Mardennes jersey.
