Inspired by the roads of the French Riviera where it was created, the Claudette cycling jersey is as sumptuous a women's cycling jersey as you'll find for colder rides. Stand out from the pack either on a 60kph Alpine descent or simply sashaying around town. Its supersoft Merino and silk content makes it luxurious, whilst the technical materials woven into the fabric ensure it keeps its shape and colour, ride after ride.
Thick enough to help keep you warm on the chilliest rides, by contrast the breathable, wicking, non-itchy properties of its painstakingly designed fabric ensure you won't feel the heat except on the sultriest summer days.
The Claudette's chic stripes will make you want to keep it on even when your bike is locked away. And its anti-odour properties will minimise that post-ride whiff, so you won't become a social pariah! Importantly it was designed from scratch specifically for the 'female form'.
The trademark Café du Cycliste attention to technical detail in the Claudette is remarkable, with cycling specific features including a camlock zip with guard, special zipped key pocket, triple back cargo pocket and silicon gripper to prevent it from riding up. If you don't enjoy your cycling more in this, you probably never will.
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'.

The ideal jersey for cooler conditions. Wear on its own or combine with a base and top layer.
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.

Great looking jerseyReview by Kelly
Been after one of these for a while so couldn't resist when I noticed in the sale!
The fabric is lovely and soft with a slight stretch, small fit so if in doubt size up.
BeautifulReview by Tim
If the way to your womans heart is through the purchase of beautiful cycling gear then this is what you need.
Stylish and really well made it feels fantastic (no I didn't try it on.....well I didn't zip it up) and my better half is now keen to get out on her bike, presumably with me, which was the point of the exercise.
I couldn't buy one of these very often but I'm thinking I won't have to.
Buying clothes for your partner is an absolute minefield but VV know how it goes and are brilliant with returns and exchanges.
Go on, you know she's worth it.
VeloVixen Says: Tim, haven't we always said you're just one of the nicest people we know?! ;) Thanks for such glowing words - we're a bit keen on the Claudette ourselves...
