THE STORY BEHIND

Conceived in the early 1960s, its design required the development of specific tools and the use of a leather so far reserved for luxury items. Designed as a demonstration of the brand’s outstanding know-how, combining esthetic and technicity, durability and comfort. The perfect alliance between form and function.

The manual break-in of the leather was developed jointly with Daniel Rebour, a sports journalist, experienced cyclist and friend of the Berthet family,

The sportiest model in the catalogue, it equipped the Peugeot team for the Tour de France, and reached the podium with Roger Pingeon in 1967.
