Winter Classic V-Gilet


The Five is what binds the world of Cycling together. It surrounds us, penetrates us; it binds our world together. The Rules are your mantra, Rule Holism your religion. This is your kit.

The gilet is designed to wear tightly over your jersey, with vented fabric on the lower back. Three rear pockets make it easy to get at your stuff right from the saddle. View the size chart.

According to ancient Velominati traditions, when first donning the V-Kit, the disciple is to visualize the Cannibal, resplendent in a vintage Molteni Arcore winter trainer and make the Secret Sign of the Merckx. Remember: be a good cycling ambassador and always represent La Vie Velominatus when wearing the V-Kit.

The V-Kit is custom-made for Velominati by Kallisto, out of a small 6 person workshop. Unlike most production facilities, speed isn’t the most important aspect, quality is what they are about and what Velominati strives for in every piece of kit we sell.

Kallisto Sportswear was founded by Peter Mazur, a Canadian born former professional cyclist. Peter is a former World Time Trial Champion and multiple Polish Champion with over 20 years of cycling experience.

The cut of our jersey and bibs are extremely anatomic for on-the-bike comfort and durability. This is amazing, top-qualitiy stuff. Look deep into your soul and then deep into the sizing chart; this is race fit gear; no vanity sizing here.
