Made from recycled coffee beans, the SE Café material of the Royal Java jersey makes for a thin, wicking riding top that’s suitable to use as a jersey or as a baselayer. The main feature of this unique fabric is its claimed resistance to developing odour. It’ll need a long-term test to see if the claims are really true, but ours has been great so far.
A zippered neck allows for further comfort control, and a neat glasses wipe is sewn into the hem. The fit is something you need to get right though – our ‘large’ came up very loose – so go down a size to get the best fit and to make the most of the sweat wicking abilities.
