When the first conversations about a new kit were being exchanged about the road.cc office (well our home offices anyway, as we were in the middle of lockdown) it just so happened that Stolen Goat had just launched their kit program personalized, so the timing couldn’t have been much better.
Stolen Goat CEO Tim Bland said: “I and the rest of the Stolen Goat team are not only very pleased with the outcome of the kit itself, but we are very much looking forward to being part of the road landscape. cc for many kilometres. ahead, rain or shine. Let the adventure begin!”
Although the kit is quite different from our previous diamond-based offerings, there is still a touch of that on the all-new shirt with one of our founding fathers, Tony Farrelly, ensuring that some form of diamonds made his appearance :
“With the new kit, we wanted to create something striking, modern and stylish that both departs from the much-loved old design and references it as well,” says Tony.
“I think we succeeded, although of course I would say that!
“It’s also much more flattering to wear than the diamond pattern it replaces, with the new design being much more forgiving. Their job is to complement and enhance an already solid design with a subtle nod to our previous kit. .”
This is a proper cycling kit, made to the same specification as Stolen Goat’s other top offerings, and by buying it you will be supporting both a young and innovative British cycling clothing brand and one of the few truly independent cycling media.
Without further ado, here are some more details about each item in the new collection. All are available in men’s and women’s sizes…

The premium fabric has what Stolen Goat describes as graduated muscle support, to help you feel fresh and keep those KOMs and QOMs coming.

Finally, here is the road.cc x Stolen Goat Orkaan Hoodie, for casual bike rides or bike rides around town. Made from the same material as the road.cc long sleeve jersey, this is a hoodie with a difference in that it won’t leave you sweating horribly thanks to its breathable and thermo-regulating properties.
It is also water repellent, windproof and has a full length YKK zipper. There are two large front zipped stash pockets to carry the essentials, and the fit is super comfortable all day – a loose fit for casual strolls and coffee dates.
As each item in the new road.cc collection is made to order, there is a standard lead time of 10-12 weeks after you pre-order your kit; however, the folks at Stolen Goat tell us there is stock ready to go for both jersey and bib short styles. Once that stock runs out it reverts to a 10-12 week pre-order, so if you get in early you should get your kit fairly quickly. Hopefully whenever your fancy new road.cc kit arrives you’ll agree it’s worth the wait!
