Q. Why wear wool for cycling?
A. Comfort. Wool is natural, soft, breathable, odour-resistant and excels at regulating body temperature.
There are additional environmental reasons why 100% wool garments are great:
synthetic clothing releases microscopic debris that accumulates in our oceans
every time you wash it. More about why wool is great
Q. Where does your wool come from?
A. We collect local off-cuts of fine Italian woven wool for our cycling caps and use European merino wool
for our jerseys and jackets. You can read more about our merino wool supplier
Q. Will I be too warm using a wool kit during my summer rides?
A. Unlike synthetics, wool reacts to changes in your body temperature and is able to keep you warm when you're cold and
cool when temperatures rise up. A short sleeve, lightweight wool jersey will perform beautifully throughout the summer,
even in hot climate areas.
Q. Aren't wool garments itchy?
A. No way, man. Itchy wool clothing is a thing of the past.
The wool we use is ultrafine, and feels soft and comfy against your skin.
Q. What does Cima Coppi stand for?
A. The name Cima Coppi (pronouned CHEE-ma KOh-pee in Italian) comes from professional road bike racing,
and specifically the Giro D’Italia. It denotes the highest mountain pass ('Cima' or peak) in the race,
named in honor of Fausto Coppi -- perhaps the greatest Italian racer of all time and a man who had a vision for great achievements.
Q. Where are your products manufactured?
A. All our products are designed, handcut, individually sewn and embroidered in our East Vancouver studio.
We are a two-person operation and everything you see, from product to website to photography, is lovingly done with our own hands.
