Pas Normal Studios is a brand which has quickly made a name for itself in the cycling apparel world. Aiming to combine high-performance with stunning aesthetics, it has risen to one of the most well-known brands among cycling’s most trendy since its inception in 2015. Pas Normal Studios’ latest range, the T.K.O Collection is no exception to the well-considered and creative clothing constantly being released by the Danish brand.
Designed by the brand’s cofounder, Karl-Oskar Olsen – who also owns a fashion label and is a graduate from the Royal Danish Design Academy – T.K.O is described by Pas Normal Studios as the “signature label for artistic expression and fashion-based aesthetics.” Olsen himself was inspired by the nature and music of the late 1970s and early 1980s when creating the T.K.O range, explaining that the feelings he gets from this music is similar to those he gets when riding a bike. “The same feeling of constant movement, cohesion and connectivity with everything that surrounds me on a ride, and of course, also some restlessness and an urge to sometimes just ride away in silence,” he says.
The T.K.O collections are strictly limited, and this drop is the first of three collections which Pas Normal Studios says “connects a universe where the pared-back performance kit of Pas Normal Studios meets inspiration from nature and music.” The collection is made up of a long sleeve jersey, winter bib tights, two off-race jumpers, one off-race t-shirt, a cap and neck tube, all of which are in muted and understated colours. Each garment features Pas Normal Studios signature branding as well as the new T.K.O and Atmosphere logo.
The T.K.O. Long Sleeve Jersey features a fleece lining, a YKK zipper with guarded zip end and Mesh lining beneath back pockets. Pas Normal Studios explains that it is suitable for layering or as a standalone jersey depending on the weather conditions.The T.K.O Rain Gilet is said to be lightweight and durable using a three-layer construction which is windproof and has a race fit. The T.K.O. Deep Winter Long Bibs are one of Pas Normal Studios’ flagship offerings when it comes to winter kit, featuring a brushed-fleece backing and extra insulation and warmth. With a pocket on the thigh, these are also designed for extra storage making them suitable for all-day adventures.
