"New fave jersey. Looks and feels lovely. Works well on the bike for long rides but - genuinely - it's something you'd feel happy wearing in any non-bike situation." - road.cc
"The Henriette jersey looks great teamed up with jeans for pootling to the shops or riding around town and looks equally as good with lycra while out on a proper training ride. I think Café du Cycliste have produced some fantastic women’s specific jerseys, that encapsulate both style and function." - fillesavelo.com
Inspired by the roads of the French Riviera where is was created, the Henriette special pique material was actually developed and manufactured in Italy. It's perfect for serious rides or for just looking stylish around town. Its classic pique material is as hard wearing as it is sophisticated, and as a more summery alternative to the fabled Yolande jersey the attention to technical detail is truly eye-popping. The technical, breathable properties ensure you'll stay cool, but it combines beautifully with other layers when the temperature drops.
Its retro-gallic stripes will make you want to keep it on even when your bike is locked away. Those stripes will transport you back to the 1950s on the Riviera before you've finished that first climb. Crucially, it was designed from scratch specifically for the 'female form'.
Additional, distinctly 21st century features include: special zipped key pocket, triple back pocket, pump pocket, and a selection of subtle but effective reflective details. Looking like a straggler from the peloton is so last year. Or 'l'annee derniere', should we say?
Café du Cycliste's sizing is generally pretty realistic. As with many European makes, if you're torn between two sizes err towards the larger of the two. Bear in mind that most of their products are cut more for comfort than for out and out skin hugging, so this can help counteract any 'undersizing'.

André a former Ironman and Rémi a former canoeing World Champion are the founding duo behind Café du Cycliste. The pair started out opening a dreamy cycling community cafe in the Cote D’Azur, Nice and haven’t moved from that location since.
Soon after, André and Rémi launched what they deliberately describe as an ‘alternative cycling wear brand’. The essence of Café du Cycliste is to avoid the unsophisticated and garish. They combine the finest materials and latest technology with a retro twist, allowing you to perform to your best but look elegant and stylish in doing so.
Development, patterning, designing and testing all still take place on the inspirational Cote D’Azur, with only the actual manufacturing outsourced. We simply love their approach to both work and play, and their products consistently rank amongst the most sought after of any we stock.
