Chapeau – The Guardian
The fine details are covered by a full collection of socks, caps, outerwear (because it’s not always sunny in the summer) and a simple, stylish casual range for the café and the bar when you are thinking back over a great day in the saddle.
Visit the Chapeau website and I guarantee you will be tempted.
The Guardian - April 2017
Echelon Jacket – Road CC
I was really impressed with it, from the material choice and performance to the pattern on the inside. A really well thought out, packable design that keeps out the elements.
It's a really well made, well designed and innovative jacket that performed superbly throughout the review. Not cheap, but worth the money and does enough in my opinion to warrant a 9.
Road CC - December 2017
Thermal Jersey – Road CC
To test its wicking ability, I took the jersey a little out of its comfort zone and into some cyclo-cross training. The intense efforts caused much perspiration, but the jersey handled it very well, leaving me feeling very comfortable.
The Chapeau! Thermal Jersey is a very adaptable spring, winter and autumn option. It's well made, with retro styling and a superb fit.
Road CC - January 2017
“The Chapeau Rain jacket has proved an excellent weatherproof companion through the often murky days of early autumn.”
“The Chapeau Repel Jersey is an excellent bit of kit. It’s become my go-to jersey over the past six weeks for training rides in what has been wet and wild – but mild – winter.“
“A gilet made from a waterproof fabric is an essential item of clothing for any UK cyclist and the Chapeau Echelon is an excellent example.“
“The Chapeau Thermal Jersey combines a modern fabric with classic styling in what is a very good winter jersey. “
“The Chapeau Thermal bib tights are part of the Devon-based firm’s debut winter range and they’re off to a good start. “
“Spending £119.99 on bib shorts from a new and relatively unknown manufacturer represents something of a risk but the Chapeau Pave bib shorts are on a par with many I’ve tested from better-known brands.“
“Chapeau’s arm and knee warmers are made from a lightweight polyester which means they’re ideal for use in spring, summer and autumn if there’s enough of a chill in the air to warrant keeping your arms and knee covered. “
“The ultra-fine weave used on the Chapeau Merino short sleeve base layer ensures its well-suited to the tepid British spring/summer. “
“The Chapeau Cafe Jersey is a great choice for those coffee stop rides rather than your sportives. It has the classic appearance of a cycling jersey with a hint of something more leisurely.”
“Provides an extra layer of protection from the saddle so you feel more comfortable on longer rides especially in the warmer weather.”
“Good quality jersey for a decent price with lots of great details.“
“Very reasonably priced arm warmers with good fit and comfort.”
“Thicker and warmer than most summer cycling socks; suitable for wearing on days when you’re both on and off the bike.“
“The Chapeau Cafe jersey has many of the features you’d find on a traditional cycling jersey, but with a fit and fabrics suitable for round-town riding if the style is right for you. “
“The Chapeau City shorts are well-made with subtle, cycling-specific features for round-town riding.“

Hot Coffee & Cream Gift Pack

“A performance jersey with classic style – a winning combination from Chapeau for the Madaleine jersey“
Ladies Pave Bibshorts Red Pad
“A comfortable and classic pair of performance women’s road cycling bib shorts, that work exceedingly well for long hours in the saddle.“
Ladies Pave Bibshorts Green Pad
“I absolutely love that feeling when you put on a piece of kit for the first time and you instinctively know that it’s going to become a prized possession “
Ladies Merino Baselayer
“This Chapeau top is in ultrafine merino and a slim fit which makes it an ideal base layer. It’s very soft and slightly stretchy, and there are no internal labels to irritate your skin.”
Ladies Mistral Jacket
“The ecorepel™ fabric by Schoeller™ features 4-way stretch. It’s a little stiffer than other jackets I’ve worn, but comfortable none the less. It’s warm and, although the fabric repels water and dirt, it is still breathable so you don’t feel clammy“
“There’s loads of chamois creams on the market, but we really like Chapeau!’s offering. It’s well-priced and doesn’t smell offensive. “
