Real men wear flamingos.
Attaquer decided to take the saying "real men wear pink" a few steps further when it designed the Pink Flamingos Kit, and the decision makes sense — after all, various tones of pink have long been a defining color in professional men's cycling apparel, gracing the shoulders of riders ranging from Ullrich and Zabel to Cunego and Ulissi. Constructed with Attaquer's thorough attention to both fit and longevity, the kit is bound to become a staple in your cycling wardrobe, and depending on where you race or ride, perhaps a crowd favorite.
New for this year, Attaquer lengthened the sleeves and lowered the neckline of its jerseys, adding additional sun protection while creating a more aerodynamic collar profile. After designing the jersey in Australia, Attaquer trusts the Italians to construct it with Italian Lycra to achieve a body-contour, race-ready fit that won't wrinkle or sag after hours in the saddle. The Australian founders of Attaquer are no strangers to humid, triple-digit rides along the coast in their native Sydney, and as such, the Lycra they use is constructed with perforations on the front panels to enhance its ability to manage moisture so that it can more quickly wick sweat away from your skin.
Attaquer also paid close attention to ensuring the fabric will maintain its bold colors, knowing that there's nothing more disappointing than taking your favorite kit out of the wash to discover it's lost its saturated hue — though we do recommend hand washing any piece you want to keep as pristine as possible. Extra details like a custom waist gripper and zip pulls keep the jersey comfortable and adaptable during long days in the saddle, and the jersey earns a UPF 50+ rating for its sun-blocking properties.
The shorts are made with the same well-rounded Lycra fabric as the jersey, cut in a similarly contoured silhouette that comprises multiple panels sewn together using flatlock stitching. Clean, laser-cut hemlines on the legs are held in place by thermo-taped grippers that lie flat without causing chafing or irritation, while the entire body of the shorts offers the same color retention and sun protection as the jersey. Attaquer uses perforated mesh to shape the bib straps, and includes a well-designed chamois for long-lasting comfort during long or short days in the saddle. Triple-density foam luxuriously lessens pressure and provides support in the places you need it, all while moving with you throughout your pedal stroke.
