The inspiring Tour de France was the first cycling race set up and sponsored by the newspaper L’Auto. The 1903 Tour de France was the first stage road race, and compared to modern Grand Tours, it had relatively few stages, but each was an average of 400 kms over bad roads and tracks, testing the riders endurance and mental strength.
We have to thank Henri Desgrange and L’Auto for our Le Tour. Our new buff commemorates this beginning, with a copy of the newspaper on the opening day of the first race; silk screened on to our seamless scarfs.
WHAT: Multi use head Scarf.
This versatile multifunctional headscarf can be worn as a headband, wristband, mask, hair-band, balaclava, scarf, scrunchie, beanie and bandana.
Constructed from a single piece of tubular woven microfibre, it has a highly elastic 4 way stretch Polyester which allows it to be molded into may shapes and styles without feeling compressive.
This versatile headwear provides protection from all the elements, including the wind and sun. Lightweight, breathable, Pave will also wick moisture away from your skin and looks (we think) great.
