Tempo Hoop Stripe

Deep Ocean

Why we made this:

We understand that some rides are more about smiles than miles and more about cafe stops than time on the clock.

We made the Tempo to offer riders a technical jersey in a relaxed fit for rides that are more beer garden than pain cave.

Size Guide

When we designed the Tempo we wanted to offer a garment in a technical fabric that would still function when worn in a more leisure riding fit.

The Tempo's fabric is quick drying but has less stretch for a more regular fit, but engineered to make sure the rear pockets don't sag when loaded up with ride essentials. The Tempo is a stylish jersey available in a broad range of colours featuring a classic chest stripe.

  • Lightweight
  • Moisture wicking
  • Reflective
  • Slim fitting
Good but sizes

The Tempo Hoop Stripe jersey gives you what it promises. Comfortable. It's sad and disappointing that CHAPEAU! creates a relaxed jersey for maybe burly men and the latest design is not available the biggest 2XL size. Generally, you have very good colours and design and incoherent size policy.

Prompt delivery - but I think that others produce better quality at this price or at least with more features (Decathlon etc - this price gets their premium top). There is no gripper or gel on the sleeves which is an oversight. The pocket are much too high on the rear which means you have to contort your arm like an escapologist to access anything in your pockets. A zipped pocket at the rear would also be helpful. I do get the sense that product development and testing was somewhat overlooked. A slight case of style over substance. Happy enough but unlikely to buy more.

>> Response from Chapeau

Sorry to hear that Hugo, we try out best to get it right but it doesn't always work. We can promise you that we give our kit an absolute pasting before it makes it to production so there's no overlooking R&D.

Don't forget that you can return any unused kit within 90 days (for free in the UK) if it doesn't meet your expectations. If you don't like it, just sent it back :-)

Thanks for the feedback!

Fitting Advice - We have purposely dressed models in a size smaller than they would normally wear in these shots of the Tempo. If you follow our fitting advice on chest sizes they will be a looser fit. 

We advise you to compare these flat measurements to a comparable garment (do not compare a jacket to a base layer for example) that you already own and like the fit of to help you work out which size to order from us. However, please remember this is a guide only - 2 garments with same flat dimensions but made of fabrics of different stretch will fit you very differently. If you'd rather buy 2 sizes and send the one back that doesn't fit, this is fine by us!
