Mont Ventoux Hoodie
Ventoux plays the most terrific mind games. From kilometre zero you can see the finish of the climb. The finish is in the form of the old, imposing observatory, perched atop like some kind of scavenging corvid, waiting to feast on fallen riders. This harbinger stays in the periphery for the first 5 kilometres before it mysteriously vanishes. Its presence is replaced with a hell like forest, as hot as a furnace but starved of oxygen just when you need it most. The gradients are now 10% leading to a slow, contorted rocking of the upper body as the sinews in the legs are on the verge of snapping.
This hooded sweatshirt features an embroidered “patch”, inspired by the iconic Ventoux Observatory itself, that is designed and produced in the UK. This patch has an unfinished edge for the ultimate vintage effect and works perfectly in tandem with the warm and plush, 320g material weight before being complemented by super snug extended cuffs and hem, hand warming front pockets and an all important double layered hood for an ultra cozy feel.
