Geometry and Performance. The Cell Collection from La Passione Cycling Couture is Online
New graphics and an updated fitting for the CELL collection: find out all about it.
Traditional elegance with an irresistible geometric twist: CELL’s dual soul is intended for refined tastes lovers and fans of style as an expression of their own strong and uncompromising personality.
Designed to guarantee a perfect race-fit and highly antiperspirant, the CELL collection offers an exclusive geometric pattern in five unique color tones that make up the new line from La Passione Cycling Couture.
Inspired by the tradition of the jersey-pattern launched two years ago by the brand, CELL brings together design with style, so to make a splash on every curve, kilometer after kilometer.
The Jersey is made with four different highly performing fabrics, in the finest Italian tradition. Distinguishing elements feature original graphics and countless technical details, like the collar and sleeves with a laser cut finish, the entirely reversible zip, the lower hem in silicone, numerous reflective details to provide high visibility, lateral inserts in special, ultra-light mesh fabric, which allow for better thermo-regulation, and three reinforced rear pockets.
This item weighs only 133 g and bears the logo ‘Hold the line’ on the back while the ‘La Passione’ brand on the right sleeve.
The Bib Shorts in this collection are classic, elegant and designed to get the most in any type of challenge, offering the right mix of comfort and support. Made with a special, highly compressive Lycra and with a design featuring more ergonomic panels, they are finished with stylish details like a white ‘La Passione’ logo, and the elastic recalls the same design of the jersey on the right leg. It is all completed in a raw-cut finish with internal silicone to guarantee optimal grip.
The pad has a curved and anatomical shape. It was developed as usual with sector leader Elastic Interface®, to insure incredible stability on the saddle, as well as proper cooling in the chafing areas. Reflective piping on the back part increases visibility.
The CELL collection offers two added accessories that are a must for every cyclist: matching gloves for added protection and comfort, and socks made in fine Meryl Skinlife thread, which keeps the foot cool and dry, even at higher temperatures.
The elegant and stylish CELL collection is suited to bike rides warmed by the first spring sunshine, for long rides on hot, sunny summer afternoons, until until the hours of light and dark equal and slowly introduce winter.

Workout with the King and Queen of the Classics, Philippe Gilbert and Anna van der Breggen, this April
Zwift’s Royal Classics Series provides a unique opportunity to train with the stars.
Zwift, the global online training and racing platform for athletes, has today unveiled the Zwift Royal Classics Series, a series that will run throughout the month of April.
Inspired by the spring classics, the workout series has been designed by Zwift Coach, Kevin Poulton. Poulton famously coached Mathew Hayman to his Paris-Roubaix victory in 2016. Hayman fractured his right arm just five weeks before and used Zwift to help prepare for the demands of the famous French cobbles.
Hosted as a Group Workout series, Zwifters will be in good hands as two of the most successful classics riders of recent times, Philippe Gilbert and Anna van der Breggen, will be leading select rides, sharing their experience and tips along the way. Between them, they have won some of the biggest races on the World Tour Calendar, including a Paris-Roubaix, The Tour of Flanders, Amstel-Gold, Liège-Bastogne-Liège, the Giro di Lombardia, and each a former UCI Road Cycling World Champion.
Of course, when thinking of the classics, it’s the major sectors that spring to mind, cobbled climbs like the Koppenberg, punishing sectors like the Carrefour de l’Arbre, the contrastingly smooth surface of Roubaix’s Velodrome or the leg snapping gradient of the Cauberg. While these typically provide the springboards for the race winning moves, what often goes unnoticed are efforts made within the peloton to move the favorites into position by their teammates ahead of each of these fabled sectors. The Zwift Royal Classics Series will give a taste of the constant accelerations and stresses of true classics racing.
“It’s an honor to have these two great champions leading this series for us,” says Eric Min, Zwift CEO and Co-Founder. “The Classics are races that all us cycling fans love to watch and dream of taking part. While it’s only ever a select number of the very best who get to battle it out, I look forward to getting a small taste of the physicality of these races on Zwift this month.”
