Designed to keep your body at a lovely temperature whilst riding your bike, a base so ultra-light, super soft and comfortable against the skin. The handy layer that takes the heat off when you're pedalling hard in warm weather.

Very similar to its sister Fernande, Café du Cycliste's Cecilia is a female specific cut and sits softly against the skin for optimum performance in warmer conditions. So, how does this beautiful piece of kit work...

The horizontal pattern of the mesh provides an effective airflow across the body for greater ventilation while the fibres themselves help to transfer moisture away from the body. The main focus is to prevent an uncomfortable build up of sweat on your skin and cycling jersey. An exceptional, top quality base which will keep you on top form to effectively reach your personal goals.

To improve comfort and fit further, Café du Cycliste don't stop there. Cecilia is flatlock stitched, meaning the hems won't rub against the skin, instead it provides a soft, no-chaffing feeling (no one likes being rubbed up the wrong way). High grade lycra side panels give added stretch to Cecilia to ensure a close fit, that's not too tight yet still favors for an active performance on the bike.

Size Guide

Café du Cycliste's sizing is generally pretty realistic. As with many European makes, if you're torn between two sizes you should err towards the larger of the two. Bear in mind that Cecilia is cut close to the body for a trim fit on the bike, but one that allows for reasonable movement off it.

Who's Behind It?

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.
