Cafe Du Cycliste has unveiled its new cycle clothing range for spring and summer and here are some of the highlights.
The Jaqueline is a windproof, packable gilet for men that’s designed to provide hardcore protection while being small enough to fit easily into a jersey pocket when not in use. You get a mesh panel, rear pockets, and a reflective safety strip.
This is an ultra lightweight jersey that’s designed for riding in hot weather. It features mesh sleeves and a diamond mesh body panel. The Micheline is available for both men and women.
These lightweight bib shorts are made using two types of Lycra. They feature perforated panels, a single piece bib section, and the top of the range pad from CyTech.
Cafe Du Cycliste also offers a mid-weight merino jersey called Georgette that’s available for men and women. It has a mesh rear panel and mesh sleeves, the idea being to provide temperature control.
There are also new colour options for many other items in the range including the merino jerseys Lucienne and Violette.
Other introductions include merino and ultralight base layers, stainless steel thermos flasks and leather backed riding mitts for warmer weather.
We’ve asked for a few of these for review on road.cc over the coming months.
