Hackney GT cycle clothing was established in 2011 by cycling fanatic and long time racer Russ Jones. What was originally a one-off jersey for his music production company Hackney Globe Trotter has now turned into a standalone brand. Designs are influenced by many aspects both inside and outside of cycling creating a vibrant alternative to traditional cycling clothing.
It’s not just about the aesthetics, jerseys are packed with unique design and material features appreciated by both racers and leisure cyclists. Each product goes through an intensive test program by members of the Hackney GT race team with feedback on cut, materials and placement, and subtle features to enhance products before releasing them to the public.
Proudly made in England.
All garments are now made in the north of England using the best materials and manufacturing processes available.
