Tour de France Mont Ventoux (Red Road) tee shirt by Lawrence Keogh

£ 29.00

Mont Ventoux starts sort of gently, rising a bit less than 300m in 7 km. gets tough and then gets tougher, it's unrelenting. This image celebrates the unique stretch above the tree line that comes after Chalet Reynard. The gradient eases at this point though you will not be much aware of easing if you cycle up it. The landscape is beyond arid, it has an other worldly feel to it. Best to be lucky with the weather, if it is not good there is no hiding place.

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.
