The team’s name came from the French word for ‘kingfisher’, and as a result the bikes and jerseys the team wore were both kingfisher blue. The understated elegance was designed to reflect the simple grace, but at the same time, effectiveness, of the bikes Alcyon produced. Although they no longer exist as a team or bike manufacturer, the kingfisher blue is still seen today as the base colour on the Belgian national team jersey.
Our retro team jerseys are handmade in our Italian factory using the very best technical fabrics. Featuring a set-in sleeve with 4cm silicone gripper cuffs, they deliver a classic fit with a consistent stretch to ensure full freedom of movement.
With an array of details – including silicone grippers, reflective detailing, three rear cargo pockets plus a 4th coin zip pocket – our jerseys are perfect for looking the part at a vintage cycling festival, or just out for an all-day ride in the sunshine.
