Triumph Bonneville T120 Thruxton by Peter Hutton

£ 49.00

Malcolm Uphill was the first rider to break 100mph as a lap speed on a production motorcycle in the IoM 750cc Production TT. The tyres were Dunlop KK81s, these were rechristened TT100s in the following week's MCN by Dunlop. I know because I bought a copy of the magazine. The bike exquisitely illustrated here by Peter Hutton was one of a dozen built as a works replicas to be used as Marshals bikes in the 1970 TT week. Uphill's win and lap were double remarkable: he was giving away 100cc to most of his rivals and he rode the race with a busted ankle.

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.
