Robert Millar t shirt by Lawrence Keogh/Phil O’Connor

£ 29.00

The image is taken from Phil O'Connor's 21 Years of Cycling Photography it shows Robert Millar time trialling. Notable because Robert was primarily a climber. In this particular TT he might have won the stage but for two forced bike changes. It was a mountain TT and he was second at 10 seconds. He is holding, but in this picture not wearing, the leader's jersey in the 1985 Vuelta.

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.
