Something a bit different from the Nice-based brand
Café du Cycliste says that its new Boubou jersey range is inspired by “African wax” iconography and designed for hot weather riding.
The designs are printed on lightweight technical fabrics that Café du Cycliste says are high wicking and fast drying for excellent moisture management and constant airflow to aid core temperature control. The Boubou jerseys have a race fit.
Other summer technical features include contrasting sleeves that are cut a bit longer for additional sun protection and include two horizontal reflective stripes to add increased visibility when the sun starts to dip lower in the sky.
Café du Cycliste says it has also reinforced the pockets so that they don’t sag when loaded up with the usual cycling junk and included a zip guard and a silicone waist zipper.
Priced at £114.00, there are two designs, Fleur and Diamant available in men’s and women’s fit. Men’s sizes run from XS to XXL and women’s from XS to XL.
