Italian cycle clothing brand, ALÉ, are annoying good at producing cycling performance wear. ‘Why annoying’ you may ask – well, it’s quite simple; they’re so good at what they do, that each year, the kit simply gets better, and I am forced to change my thoughts on my own favourite jacket for days on the bike.
Having used some quite excellent jackets before, and some quite terrible waterproof jackets too, this stylishly modern jacket ticks all the right boxes and is most certainly, at the top of the list.
Prendas Ciclismo are a small but high quality and high performance clothing brand, with an adherence to excellence. We’ve been testing their cold weather clothing in the Yorkshire Dales, and it’s absolutely spot on.
Shutt Velo are a brand with a growing reputation, and it’s easy to see why. Their latest cold weather clothing is superbly made from top quality fabrics, and looks and feels great on the road. Best of all, it’s reasonably priced too.
If you’re looking for the ideal winter jersey, that also comes in useful in late autumn and early spring, then this is definitely the jersey for you. In a short space of time, it’s become one of the jerseys that I instinctively go for as a favourite.

There’s an old Scandinavian phrase – ‘there’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing’, and Sigr have developed their clothing range around this mantra.
The Alé Race Nordik Men’s jacket is superb winter garment designed for extremes and it works well in these cold and harsh conditions. Let’s start off with the design for a change, as this really is a very smart and stylish looking jacket.
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
