Imagine the scene: a ride out on a beautiful late summer’s day in the Alps. It is almost impossible not to be seduced by the sights, smells and sounds of this vibrant region. Now picture yourself in our stylish new Croix De Fer Jersey, luxuriating in the MERINO + CARBON fabric as you pedal past rustic villages and begin the ascent into Le Col de la Croix De Fer.
Designed for changeable alpine conditions, descents and as a first barrier against summer showers, this is our new short sleeve silhouette finished with an iron cross reflective graphic in honour of one of the most celebrated legends of the Tour De France.
The Jersey is available this summer in an exclusive teal colour to coincide with the world’s most famous Grand Tours. 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 as well as the signature rear stripe, while the co-ordinates are also marked subtly on the rear pocket.
Our 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.
Junior designer Lucy Reeve-Smith: “I think the exclusivity of the new teal colourway in this style works incredibly well with the silver detail of the zip and Croix De Fer graphic – and importantly empowers our female customer with a can do performance message.”
