Berlin Time Trial t shirt by Lawrence Keogh/Phil O’Connor

£ 29.00

The image is inspired by Chris Froome winning the TT on the penultimate racing day, Friday September 9th, of the 2016 Vuelta. Man and machine against the clock, uncompromising and with no place to hide. Froome nearly pulled off an overall victory but an earlier aberrant day's performance by Team Sky left him just too much to do in the 37 difficult KM he had available.

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.
