LES CLASSIQUES COLLECTION
Each spring, the best of the best of Tempo cycling line up to take on some of the toughest single day races of the entire year. Battled beneath cold, wet skies, cycling’s Cobbled Classics pit riders against each other, the elements and importantly, uneven terrain. But whether it’s lining up in Paris or crossing the finish line in Liege, all who take part in these storied, historic races do so in service of the call of the cobbles.
To celebrate the spirit and power of the pavé, we’ve created our Les Classiques collection:cycling saddles, shoes, handlebar tape and more inspired by the dust, dirt and mud of the Cobbled Classics. On the surface, each item in Les Classiques shares a unique mud-flecked aesthetic that honors the grit and grime intrepid riders adopt when racing across the notoriously inclement French and Belgian countryside.
But of course, the Les Classiques spirit extends beyond looks. Beneath the speckled exterior sits performance worthy of the pavé—from advanced road cycling shoes featuring our ergonomic Overcurve closure system, resilient PU-laminated mesh uppers and ultra-responsive R4 racing outsole to our ride-compliant, short nosed saddle that sits ready to take on the roughest roads. Channel the Cobbled Classics on every ride with limited-edition bar tape or bring the best of spring competition home with our Call of the Cobbles Poster.
Cycling’s history comes to life each spring with the start of the Cobbled Classics, and now you can celebrate that history every day of the year with Les Classiques from fizik.
