Introducing Spécialiste, a new collaboration between Craft Sportswear of Sweden and The Handmade Cyclist.

Cutting-edge technology meets timeless design.


The Handmade Cyclist are a contemporary cycling design studio specialising in art and collectibles. Spécialiste is our first range of performance cycling clothing, bringing together The Handmade Cyclist’s unique blend of modern aethestics and cycling storytelling with Craft’s race-proven innovation and peerless quality.

The Spécialiste range uses fabrics and cuts developed on the UCI World Tour with Team Sunweb, with three variants designed to meet the most exacting demands of the peloton’s Spécialistes. Super-lightweight jerseys, race-winning aerodynamics and perfect fit: whether you are a Grimpeur, Sprinteur or Puncheur, there’s a beautiful kit built just for you.

The Angels of the Mountains.

The riders who scour the map before they ride, searching for the tell-tale chevrons that reveal the steepest slopes.
The Grimpeur is patient. On the flatlands they hide, they wait, they suffer, holding on for the moment when the road rises
and their spirits soar.

Like a bird, set free.


The Grimpeur range features super-lightweight mesh fabrics developed for the hottest days of the Tour and the Vuelta, for superior ventilation and maximum performance on the days when every gram counts.

Ride, race, attack, repeat.

When the road rolls, the Puncheur rides. Explosive, relentless, unstoppable.


Precision-cut aero jerseys for optimal aerodynamics, using six different fabrics to give the perfect fit, comfort and speed. 


Spécialiste is the first collaboration between Craft Sportswear and The Handmade Cyclist. 


We wanted to create a range of cycling kit for women and men that didn’t just look fast, but that actually helped you ride faster, longer and more efficiently, whatever type of rider you are. The Spécialiste range features cuts, fabrics, aerodynamics and technology developed at the cutting edge of pro cycling in the UCI World Tour - race-proven garments for the world’s most demanding riders. At The Handmade Cyclist we believe that riders perform best when they look and feel great, so we created a range with timeless simplicity, distinctive design and subtle detailing so that whether you are a racer or a weekend warrior you know you will stand out from the peloton. 


The Spécialiste range for men and women will be available from quality cycling retailers early in 2020. Contact us for further information on stockists and availability.



A peloton of asassins, but only one bullet can hit the target. The supreme test of nerves, timing and speed.


When a race is decided by millimetres, every millisecond counts. Superior aerodynamics and the fastest materials plus matchless support and freedom of movement for maximum power.
