What's more classic, fresh and chic for spring / summer pedaling than Breton stripes?
The Café du Cycliste Francine is an adaptable performance jersey for road cycling, suited to spring and summer. It's cut specifically for female curves, allowing for slightly larger hips and a narrower waist. It's made from high wicking super soft fabric and has excellent ventilation thanks to the open mesh panels at the back and under the arms.
The weather can be unpredictable at times - the days we've spent pondering over what to wear, cycling or not! Francine can easily be worn as a base, mid or top layer. And once you've finished your ride, it'll look fabulous whether you're sipping on an expresso outside a café or heading off for a yoga session.
And then there are all those clever little details that can make or break a long ride - zipped key pocket, pump pocket, ipod pocket, triple back pockets, reflective detailing, and so much more. Stand out from the crowd, with a more civilisée look.
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 the Francine is race cut, so is deliberately fitted. If you prefer a more roomy fit, pick the larger size.

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.
