Men’s Croix De Fer Jersey

£129.00

Approaching from the north from La Chambre via Col du Glandon, the location of the Croix De Fer is marked by a gruelling ascent and a 22.7km ride that averages 7.0%. When the rider summits the stage they are presented with a spectacular view of the famous iron cross. New for 2017 is a race-inspired Jersey with more than a little doff of the cap to the Tour De France. The Croix De Fer Jersey is a short sleeve silhouette finished with an iron cross reflective graphic in our luxurious MERINO+CARBON blend.

The Croix De Fer itself is an icon of the Tour, having featured 16 times since 1947.  Graphically represented at the front of the Jersey, a repeat series of Croix de Fer icons form the front chest stripe, while the co-ordinates are also marked subtly on the rear pocket as part of the signature ashmei rear stripe.

Fit for any pro rider, the high-performance fabric is second to none in terms of regulating body temperature. On a practical front, three rear stowage pockets plus a zipped security pocket provide ample storage needs. The Jersey boasts superfine Merino wool as it is peerless in performance terms. The addition of carbon to the blend allows the fabric to wick moisture 10x faster than regular Merino and helps it dry twice as fast.

ashmei founder Stuart says: “I wanted to honour a legend of the Tour and the Croix de Fer remains on my personal bucket list of epic rides. Hopefully our customers will appreciate the little touches such as the Croix De Fer map co-ordinates, which are marked subtly on the rear pocket.”

    As the product description mentions, the fabric with this top feels great to wear. The fit is perfect for me and looking forward to a long summer in Australia and staying comfortable and cool (as much as you can in mid-30c temps) in this top

    Beautiful detailing amazing quality and incredible feel to the fabric. Makes other jerseys feel cheap by comparison. First time I’ve bought from Ashmei and I’m super Impressed by the quality.

    Really stylish jersey and quite unique looking, small details such as the GPS coordinates for the Croix De Fer in small print on the back are nice touches. The material is smooth to the touch, quite thin and being merino regulates the temperature very well. Great product.

    The jersey is so comfortable and the fit is perfect. The jersey came beautifully packaged by Hester in very quick time. I’m very impressed with the quality and service of Ashmei. Thanks for a great jersey, now to look for my next purchase 🙂

    Another beautiful piece to add to my ashmei collection. Lovely detailing and fit and although I’ve yet to have the chance to wear in the sun, I know it will perform. It’s my 1st ashmei cycling piece, it won’t be the last!
