Activewear news: KANDESENT women’s cyclingwear launches

Updated: Jun 19, 2019

KANDESENT was born out of a desire to create the best performance cycling apparel for women. A standalone range, not an afterthought to a men’s range.

Women demand the same high performance from their cycling and fitness apparel as men - but their bodies are different. And these needs weren’t being addressed. So, when the founders Donna and Michelle couldn’t find the apparel on the market that suited their needs, they joined forces to make their own. Using premium Italian performance fabrics, designed and manufactured in Europe – KANDESENT is built differently. Introducing totally new cuts, shapes and designs - especially for women. With jersey silhouettes, accessories and prints allowing for a mix and matched look.

As a starting point KANDESENT re-worked the classic cycling jersey to women's specific design. A racer back ‘POWER T Back Tank’ with a bust support was built within. This style keeps riders cool in the heat, by totally removing the back section. Giving the benefits of a cycle specific jersey, with the style and attributes of a performance sports tank.

For those chilly mornings or descents, KANDESENT looked at the jacket offering that was on the market and re-worked the normal waist length jacket. When arms and chest are cold, The KANDESENT STEALTH MIDI CROPPED Jacket provides a solution, and has been transformed to best fit the female form.

A windproof chest area and a high neck collar helps riders regain warmth, in addition it's roll up feature enables reduced bulk and will be a favourite packable essential for cyclists.

Within the range are a collection of jerseys and sleeveless jerseys featuring vibrant chevron, neon zebra and a bespoke flutter design print along with solid options.

The brand has created unique apparel that can be easily co-ordinated with each other, offering riders more exciting opportunities to look and feel like an individual – not one of the masses.

working with illustrator Rosalind Monk, KANDESENT created the one of a kind ‘Flutter’ print that is used within the collection.

KANDESENT strives to empower women cyclist to be their very best. If you look good, you feel good and you perform good. Wear great kit that was built for you and hit the roads with confidence.
