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, led by lead designer Jennie, 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.
