The Power of Coffee on Cycling t shirt by Daniel Davidson

£ 39.00

Daniel Davidson, a restless, prolific and eclectic artist,  imagines some key moments in the development of cycling influenced by the power of drinking coffee:  Greg LeMond in plotting how to beat Laurent Fignon exploited aerodynamics with bars that go beyond drops, they are probably worth about a minute in a ten mile TT.  Geo Lefevre & Henri Desgrange almost certainly had more than one coffee in considering how to increase the circulation of magazine L'Auto,  Tulio Campagnolo had more than a coffee a day when he was developing his all conquering kit.  The men of Reynolds Tubing?  Tea more likely, they were Midlands English.  Mr Dunlop? Guinness but it might have been coffee. The Baron, coffee surely played its part and similarly resolutely French LOOK.

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.
