Breitling’s association with cycling can be traced back more than sixty years. From the early 1950s, the brand provided its timekeeping services to the most highly regarded competitions in the world, including the Giro d’Italia, the Milan–San Remo, the Tour de Lombardie, the Tour de France, the Tour de Belgique, the Flèche Wallonne, and the Volta a Portugal.
Breitling worked with some of the sports true legends. One was Italian Fausto Coppi, “Il Campionissimo”. The world champion of world champions won the Tour de France twice and the Giro d’Italia five times. In fact, in 1948 and 1952, he won both races, a pair of victories known as the “Grand Boucle”. Breitling also worked with his fiercest rival, Gino Bartali, who won the Tour de France twice and the Giro d’Italia three times. Now, to celebrate its return to the world of top-level competitive cycling, Breitling is proud to be working with Q36.5 and its extreme vision of the future of cycling clothing. We invite you to create your own mission wearing state-of-the-industry kit from Q36.5’s Breitling Collection.
Breitling is part of our Custom Equipment Collection, if you would like to have a custom kit for your team we offer the possibility of customising our garments using the same construction technique and materials that we use in our Essential Collection. The result is a tailored product entirely handmade in Italy to the clients’ specifications.
