Team Jumbo-Visma’s triumphant victories in Europe’s three Grand Tours of cycling, including the recent Vuelta a España, were supported by AGU’s outstanding cycling kits that are powered by the innovative HeiQ Smart Temp thermoregulation technology.
HeiQ, a pioneer in textile technology, celebrates its successful collaboration with AGU, a high-performance sports gear manufacturer. Together, the companies integrated HeiQ Smart Temp technology into the jerseys of Jumbo-Visma, the triumphant team whose outstanding cyclists Jonas Vingegaard, Primoz Roglic, and Sepp Kuss won Europe’s three Grand Tours; the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia, and Vuelta a España.
HeiQ Smart Temp, an innovative thermoregulation solution, dynamically responds to body heat and moisture, providing cyclists with a cooling effect when they need it most. This technology enhances comfort and performance, making it ideal for next-to-skin apparel, sportswear, and activewear.
Every degree Celsius counts
AGU’s product developers harnessed the power of HeiQ Smart Temp to create jerseys with exceptional cooling properties. The Jumbo-Visma team’s lightest-weight jersey, weighing 25% less than their regular aero shirt, keeps athletes up to 2.5°C cooler than other performance fabrics.
Cyclists generate immense heat during a race. Efficient heat dissipation is crucial for peak performance, especially on scorching summer days in the mountains. HeiQ Smart Temp provides the competitive edge needed to excel in harsh conditions.
Tour de France winner Jonas Vingegaard even added: “Thanks for the best clothing in the world, AGU.”
Over the years, HeiQ Smart Temp has earned the trust of global brands, catering not only to athletes but also to individuals facing daily challenges at work or during leisure activities.
AGU has been encouraging everyone to cycle more for over 50 years. It’s what we at AGU work on every day. We are a brand with solid Dutch roots, which means cycling is in our blood. Through an extensive line of cycling clothing, accessories, rainwear, panniers and teamwear, we want to provide all cyclists with the means to enjoy being in the saddle all year round. At any distance, in any conditions, on any roads and on any bike. Starring all those heroes for whom we are there; cyclists.
