It's light, it's bright, and it's proudly breaking all the rules. Introducing Hotmix Apparel, a new range of cycling wear that its creators say bucks the "matchey matchey trend of black-on-black kit."
Throwing the cycling clothing rule book out the window, Hotmix co-founder Jules Trudeau says just as you don't wear a matching shirt and pants when you go out on the town, why should you when you ride your bike?
Realising more and more cyclists are looking dangerously alike, Jules and business partner James Carr, both die-hard Aussie road cyclists, felt it was high-time to throw the cycling fashion doors wide open.
James is an ex-Sydney Kings basketball player and Jules is a graphic designer and photographer. Together they've melded their skills and opened the way for cyclists to better express their on-bike fashion sense.
"With Hotmix's first edition of kits, in both men's and women's specific cuts, you can mix'n'match the jerseys and bibshorts to make your own style," said Jules.
"We have grand plans to expand the range, the possible kit combinations will only increase." he added.
With endless traffic on our roads and a growing desire for riders to be safe and be seen, the bright colours and catchy designs of Hotmix Apparel will no doubt prove popular among Aussie riders.
