Chapeau's Madeleine Polka Stripe women's cycling jersey in Devon Red blends spots and stripes into a look that's timelessly classic. Their aim was to create a top quality jersey made from the finest fabric they could use - but one which wasn't too... shouty.
The fit is deliberately snug, to avoid any flapping or irritation, and the technical fabric helps to wick away perspiration on hotter days or bigger climbs.
The full length zip allows for even better temperature control, whilst the double full sized pockets are plenty big enough to keep your ride essentials tucked away - arm warmers, food, VeloPac and more. Plus the extra zipped pocket provides extra security for your valuables.
The reflective Chapeau! badge and trim helps keep you visible if your ride takes you into dusk and beyond.
This is one that's sure to make you stand out as a cycling sophisticat and is sure to attract admiring, knowing glances from your fellow riders.
Chapeau's Madeleine jerseys are designed with a 'compression' fit in mind - this means that they may feel a little tighter than you might be used to when you first put them on. However, unless it feels instantly uncomfortable, this is likely to work in your favour as it actually helps your muscles to work more efficiently through each part of the event.
They are only producing a limited size range for now, meaning that sizes larger than L are unfortunately not (yet) available.

We admired Chapeau! from afar for years before finally consummating our relationship and finding a loving way to offer our customers their beautiful kit.
Based in Exeter, they are a truly British team - something that reflects in their designs as well as their attention to technical detail.
So what kind of folk are they? We think they hit a great balance between a true passion for cycling and a refusal to take it (or themselves) too seriously. They hate cycling stereotypes, love cake, hate cycling snobbery, love inclusivity. They respect cyclists of all types, look after their bikes and kit like their own children, and truly want to share their passion with others.
In short, they're our kind of people. And the proof couldn't be clearer: 'Chapeau!', in case you weren't aware, is French for 'hat', and is the traditional cycling parlance to pay tribute to a fellow cyclist's efforts.
We say 'Chapeau!' to them.
