Chris Boardman T shirt by Lawrence Keogh/PhilO’Connor

£ 29.00

Chris Boardman just crossing the line with the slight grin of a man who knows he has done a good job. This was confirmed later. It was Boardman's debut TdF, he won by 15 seconds with Miguel Indurain in 2nd. At those speeds 15 seconds is about 200m. An astonishing margin especially for a man only recently turned professional.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
