"This jersey is a lot more than just a pretty cycling top, it performs well and the quality of finish and the thoughtful details put it up there with the best of them." - road.cc
Inspired by the roads of the French Riviera where is was created, the Suzanne is a gem. It's perfect for serious rides or for just looking stylish around town. Its mix of mesh and superlight polyester 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 breathable, wicking, non-itchy 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. In fact, can you resist slinging a string of onions round your neck?! Crucially, it was designed from scratch specifically for the 'female form'.
Additional 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.
