Café du Cycliste was born in a traditional French café – a perfect mid-ride coffee stop – nestled in the hills above France's Mediterranean coast. It was founded from a love of cycling and a desire to produce high-quality, technically excellent cycling apparel with a twist of classic French style.
Café Du Cycliste use premium fabrics, innovative design and daily inspiration from the Cote d’Azur to produce elegant, high performance cycling clothing for both men and women. Their approach is called ‘tailored-tech’, it’s a belief that style doesn’t mean compromising on performance and it underpins everything they do.
Everything Café Du Cycliste do is created from scratch and built from the ground up. Each piece starts life as a blank sheet of paper. In fact even before the paper, it starts as an idea, or half an idea, or simply just as a vague thought.
Working almost exclusively with Italian factories, small and medium size family firms with a wealth of experience, knowledge and know-how, Café Du Cycliste only choose fabrics which both look sensational and perform even better.
But the design of any new product isn’t just about the fabrics, but rather about a whole host of decisions concerning every detail. Zips, buttons, seams and style all have to measure up the become the essence of Café du Cycliste.
