Le Tour Messengers

Tis the season for le Tour, and that means the launch of another limited edition Timbuk2 Tour de France Messenger. Our original series of Tour de France messengers celebrated the four jerseys of the Tour — maillot jaune (yellow) for the overall race leader, maillot vert (green) for the overall points leader, maillot blanc (white) for the best young rider (under the age of 26), and maillot à pois rouge (polka dot) for the top climber (i.e. King of the Mountains!). Of all the jerseys, the maillot à pois rouge (polka dot) was our favorite, and we still enjoy spotting it in the city.

Polka Dot Timbuk2 Messenger
The polka dots lead to a rather strange shoot and even inspired the launch of polka dots in the customizer.

This year does not feature dots, but riding with this limited edition will still make you feel like a King.

It goes well with a baguette and some Brie:

Perfect for climbing the Alpes d’Huez…or erm, San Francisco hills:
