Launched in June 2011, French cycle clothing brand, Café du Cycliste is based in Nice. Founded by André and Rémi – respectively an Ironman triathlete and former canoeing world champion.
From what we’ve seen of their women’s range, the essence of Café du Cycliste is to produce luxurious, retro-styled cycle clothing with thoughtful feminine features and boy, do their jacket and gilet scream elegance!
Although there are no bib shorts or leggings in the Café du Cycliste women’s range, lagging behind in terms of breadth of choice compared to the men’s, we’ll let them off due to their current selection being so sophisticated, while still packing a punch in the technical department.
Check out the next couple of pages where we showcase all the details and features of Colette and Madeleine from the Café du Cycliste range before we put them out to test.
