The Café du Cycliste Fernande women's cycling base layer is simply the most feminine and elegant cycling base layer we've encountered. Understated elegance oozes from it, despite the fact that it's unlikely to be on display out on the road. That's just how Café du Cycliste's roll!
Its mesh composition creates a layer of warm air under your chosen cycling jersey, allowing you to moderate your core temperature. On warmer days, it works as a perfect ventilation layer, helping your jersey to wick perspiration away, leaving you feeling dryer and more comfortable.
The fast drying fabric is incredibly soft, and the flatlock stitching helps prevent chafing. The ultralight solid chest panel offers extra support whilst the premium lycra side panels give you the perfect fit. This is one we're likely to take on pretty much every ride!
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 Fernande is cut close to the body for a trim fit on the bike, but one that allows for reasonable movement off 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.
