Merxissimo – Eddy Merckx

£ 29.00

He could likely lay claim to being one the best aerobic athletes of the 20th century. He had a career win rate of over 30% plus 11 Grand tours and Spring Classics seemingly on demand. His first TdF victory was the most extraordinary at just 24 he took the yellow jersey, the KoM polka dot jersey, the green sprinter's jersey, the most combative award and would have won the youth white jersey had it been awarded in '69.

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.
