This track jacket forms part of a special limited collection made in honour of US champion and Olympic medallist, Nelson Vails, nicknamed The Cheetah. Watch Nelson Vails racing the 84 Los Angeles Olympics and youll soon see why. Vails predatory power bred in the concrete jungle as a bike messenger, where he never failed to deliver saw him scoop silver, resplendent in red, white and blue. This track jacket digs a little deeper to recall Vails riding and racing roots, and the green and yellow of his first team. Nelson Vails wore track jackets to warm up in, and this special edition lets you subtly sport the Cheetahs colours whether riding or relaxing.
The main fabric is knitted into a honeycomb structure for a finish that is soft against the skin, with a subtle two-tone effect that shows through. An embroidered logo on the sleeve combines the recognisable thunderbolt of his team with Vails initials. Cuffs, collar and hem are ribbed for a close and comfortable fit.A metal zip runs the length of the jacket with an O-ring puller for ease of use, and two welted pockets on the front of the jacket hold your valuables.
