Those very clever and extremely stylish people at Italian brand ALÉ have come up with something extra special this winter. We thought that you deserved a look and so here’s a preview and a link to their own site, so that you can pop along and write out your favourites for Christmas 😉
Anyway, lets start of you off with a few ideas …
EVOLUTION & ELEGANCE
Getting the right gear is crucial during the colder months, especially when you’re heading into the hills. ALÉ have used all of their knowledge and experience to bring some exciting new products to the market for riders who value the blending of performance and style.
Simplicity and elegance is at the heart of their new R-EV1 – CLIMA PROTECTION collection. This is definitely the garment for those who ride in all weathers. The innovative fabrics provide warmth and breathability at the same time, while the DWR treatment protects from humidity and filth. The reflective details grant a high visibility on the road in order to maintain the body dry during the performance.
‘S’ STANDS FOR SPECIAL
Nobody works as closely with cyclists at all levels than ALÉ and their high end R&D is led through collaboration with the best from the pro teams.
The PR-S collection comes from the longtime collaboration with pro teams. This relationship has allowed us to offer to every type of cyclist the same products and technologies used for the pros who ride the Grand Tours or the North classics. Producing super performance gear that also looks chic and stylish is key the ALÉ ethos and the new PR-S range is typical of the bright and dynamic design for men and women that ALÉ have become renowned for.
Far too often brands either over-complicate the design or simply produce another shade of colour, looking just like the rest on the rail. ALÉ are different and this years winter collections show them aat their best.
GRAPHICALLY SPEAKING …
If you like bold designs and a soft natural feel to your clothing, then the graphics inspired PR-R collection is an ALÉ must. It’s a mix of technology and colours: with the breathable fabrics and the racing fitting combining with bold and strong designs. For the Fall-Winter 2019/2020 ALÉ have introduced a well known classic in a new form to show off their innovation – the Merino wool. Yes, it’s something natural, but never looking like this before, and not with such technicity sewn in.
This natural fabric gives softness and comfort, it allows to create light but thermic garments, because it regulates the body temperature. Style is definitely not an option with this collection.
These days garments can be over designed, as brands try too hard to over compete, but ALÉ have produced a natural range of clothing that fits perfectly with current fashion and modern trends, balancing form and fit with this natural material to make sure that you look and feel great on the road. Merino wool is a superb insulator and also carries the natural breathability and regulating properties that working on the bike in winter requires.
One of the great things about ALÉ is that they cater for all levels of cycling. Among the new winter range is this great collection for dedicated to those who are starting cycling or live it without competition. These garments have technical and innovative fabrics, with a comfortable fitting and an excellent value for money.
They’re definitely not basic, but they’re also not over-complicated and have just the rightlevel of technicity at the right price point for the cyclist who is still undecided and getting to grips with the wide offereings within the cycle clothing arena. It’s a range designed to do the job required and keep you looking good at the same time, without breaking the bank.
