NEW! Recycled Roubaix T-shirts

Our latest design pays homage to what many believe to be the toughest and most iconic of the Spring Classics, the Paris-Roubaix. Made infamous and feared by many for its brutal and unforgiving cobbled sections, or pavé. We love the classics, and this is without doubt our favourite.

Each T-shirt is made from 100% recycled post-consumer polyester, on average recycling 7 used plastic bottles. Two variations of this product are available, either Green text on Black cobbles, or Pink text on Grey cobbles. Suitable for men and women, these Unisex T-shirts are available in sizes XS-XL.

Mont Ventoux – Recycled sweatshirts and T-shirts

Our very latest “Allez! Allez! Allez!” Mont Ventoux design is now available! With a choice of supersoft jersey cotton T-shirt or 100% recycled raglan sweatshirt. Shop NOW! and receive 10% off with voucher code “ventoux”. Offer available this weekend only.

Mont Ventoux is without doubt one of the most iconic and toughest climbs in the French Alps, featured in the Tour de France 15 times including 10 summit finishes. The climb became infamous after the tragic death of British cyclist Tom Simpson in 1967 who died from heat exhaustion. And who could forget the extraordinary scenes of Chris Froome running up the climb in the 2016 Tour.

A true mecca for road cycling enthusiasts, many joining the Club des Cinglés du Mont Ventoux  (Crazy Club of the Windy Mountain!) completing all 3 ascents in one day.

How could we not create a design to honour it?!
