Tour de France L’Alpe D’huez t shirts by Lawrence Keogh

£ 29.00

Apparently far from the toughest climb of the Le Tour, 13.8km for about 1125 meters of gain at an average of just over 8%, but 21 hairpins and huge crowds have made or broken contenders perhaps more frequently than any other mountain regularly used on Le Tour. The record is held by Marco Pantani at 37 minutes 35 seconds in 1997, about 22kmph.

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.
