The history of our Himalaya-proof cycling range

The products in our winter collection are the result of the collaboration with ultra-cyclist Omar Di Felice, who tested and wore them in February 2021 during his record-breaking Himalayan adventure: 1294km from Kathmandu to Everest base camp solo.

From design to prototype development, the Italian cyclist worked closely with our research and development laboratory AREAS (Academy for Research and Engineering in Apparel and Sport). The result is high-performance garments that are extraordinarily effective at managing body temperature and protecting against the elements, without compromising freedom of movement.
The combination of these garments creates a perfect layering system, ideal for tackling all weather conditions: from the warmth of mid-season to the -15° of the Himalayan passes.


During his adventure, Omar used all types of UYN jackets. From the CORESHELL, with waterproof protection on the front and increased breathability on the back, to the FULLSHELL, which is completely waterproof and windproof thanks to our Membrain 115 membrane.
The BE SEEN jacket, with its increased thermal power, proved indispensable in low temperatures. The ultra-lightweight PACKABLE rain jacket was his versatile and functional companion, always ready for use.


Impossible to beat the comfort of our AIRWING shirt. The Hypermotion construction of the sleeves guarantees a fantastic fit, and the refined breathability properties help to maintain a constant body temperature. Ideal to wear in combination with our technical underwear for maximum comfort.


The UYN RACEFAST bib tights, with their innovative hybrid construction combining Lycra and highly elastic knitted fabric, guarantee the right level of warmth and absolute freedom of movement.

For very low temperatures, rainy and snowy days, UYN RACE DEEPWINTER is the most technologically advanced solution. An ultra-technical, waterproof, windproof, insulating and incredibly comfortable bib tights.


Nothing like the natural power of Merino wool to protect your feet from the cold. UYN AERO WINTER socks guarantee the highest level of comfort at low temperatures.
