A Sweatshirt Collection Inspired By A Cult Classic Cycling Film

View all 13 Photos

Thousand Helmets has a penchant for creating products that tell a story. The brand’s new sweatshirt collection takes things to another level. Inspired by the cult classic cycling film ‘Breaking Away’, the range of bike riding outfits celebrates the art of storytelling as well as cycling heritage. “I’ve always been fascinated by cycling culture and its heritage—because it’s still so relevant today,” says Gloria Hwang, co-founder of Thousand. “We wanted to introduce a product that had our DNA while giving a hat tip to the past,” she adds. The two sweatshirts combine vintage design cues with modern performance and plenty of style.

‘The Little Five Sweatshirt’ and ‘Club Pennant Sweatshirt’ allude to the film’s key race. The former references the name of the race, while the latter reproduces the design of the racing flags. Perfect for cyclists, the sweatshirts come with functional features that include a practical iPhone pocket, raglan sleeves for extra mobility, as well as moisture wicking fabrics for more comfort, and reflective materials for added safety. Proudly made in Los Angeles, the unisex sweatshirts have a price tag of $78 and come in gray and navy, both options available in four sizes. If you want to complement your Thousand helmet with a cool sweatshirt, if you love the film, or if you’re an avid cyclist who loves bike riding outfits that blend expert craftsmanship and good design, head over to the brand’s official website to grab your favorite.
