2019 Spring/Summer Collection

Adventures
in symmetry

The pattern repeats; Winter subsides and Summer springs into life. The sun rises higher and deep blue skies reflect our growing optimism. Colours become richer, shadows interlock to create abstract shapes on warm tarmac. It's a time for renewal; wear your new colours, show off your stripes and parade your impossible patterns. Our Spring / Summer 2019 collection is here.

Inspired by a Dutch Master

Inspired by the Moorish tessellated patterns and woodcut colour palettes of artist M.C Escher, this year's collection is an exciting new take on Chapeau!'s classic styling. We're proud to present a varied selection of patterns, colours and graphics influenced by the geometric genius of the Dutch mathematical master.

Colours come into season

All your favourite Chapeau! colours are back again this year alongside Army Green, Seville Orange and Gold. Look out for a whole spectrum of exciting colours that turn the expected on its head.

Go faster sleeves

Completely new for 2019, the Chapeau! Club Pro features aero sleeves for an even faster version of the popular Club jersey. Available in pattern, stripe and plain versions.

The way we do
the things we do

When designing new garments we always go back to the reason we started Chapeau! - to provide quality kit that looks and feels incredible and performs well on the bike. There is always a 'why' to the way we do the things we do. Every piece of kit has a story - a reason for being and we'd like to share that with you.

The fast lane

The brief for the club pro was simple. It had to look fast! As fast as a hare, a speeding bullet train and lightning in jersey form. Whether you are feeling fast or wanting to convince yourself you are, the Club Pro is the one for you. The stripe sleeve fabric delivers style and allows us to create tonal differences in colour with the main body fabric that look great. A zip security pocket, full gripper and the essential three rear pockets mean this jersey is equal parts form and function. You can choose to go full on with the pattern or low key with the logo only, as well as the ever sharp chest stripes. You can even pair with a matching base layer for full on dazzle.

The smiles
high club

The club jersey, available in both men's and women's cut is a high spec summer jersey that looks the part but at a price that won't break the bank. We wanted to create a jersey for everyone that retains the aesthetics of our more expensive, race cut jerseys. The raw cut raglan sleeve cut is accommodating and comfortable for any size of rider and the body fabric offers top performance whilst still being forgiving to wear. We understand real cyclists come in all shapes and sizes and that we all want to look sharp and feel great on the bike.

Sunday Best

When we created the Madeleine jersey we wanted the most luxury performance fabric you can use delivered in an understated and undoubtedly modern classic design. The Sunday Best of cycling kit.

We added the useful hip pockets for easier access to gels and bars on the go, essential for those big ride days. Whilst the Madeleine features a race cut and race sleeves the reality is that we aren't all racing. This is a highly functional jersey that looks the part, is as at home in a crit race as a tour to the seaside and back. The Madeleine is our top of the range jersey, and an investment in quality and detail that speaks for itself.

Up The Tempo

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.

Base in
the place

We created our Mesh base layers to work as well under a summer jersey in the heat or on the indoor trainer where it can really get heated! We didn't want the base layer to be relegated to an undergarment. What's cooler than an unzipped jersey, flapping gloriously in the summer sun? We've created options for co-ordination and earning style points - PBs are multiplied when the base layer options look as sharp as these.
