On the occasion of the Italian Bike Festival in Misano (15-18 September 2023) Alé launched the collection dedicated to Sonny Colbrelli.
In his ten years as a professional cyclist Sonny was European Champion, Italian Champion and won the toughest of the Northern Classics: Paris-Roubaix. It is precisely his splendid career that inspires her Capsule Collection designed by Alé.
Designed on garments from the Alé PR-R line, dedicated to professional cycling, the Sonny Colbrelli collection offers an outfit short sleeve shirt and dungarees.
The shirt, suitable for temperatures from 18° to 32° C, has elegant graphics, played in shades of gray and black. The famous cobra logo, Colbrelli’s nickname, stands out on the right. On the back, a long stripe that starts from the neck and ends at the bottom of the shirt shows the aforementioned victories of the great champion. Designed with body-mapping technology, the shirt is made of 4 different fabrics strategically positioned to achieve the right balance between comfort and performance.
The front panel in Microperforated Light dries very quickly, is breathable and its micro-hole structure allows for excellent ventilation.
The back is in Geo Light fabric, very light, elastic and fresh; the sides are made of feather mesh to facilitate the elimination of sweat. Finally, the raw-cut sleeves, in Aero mini rib fabric, have a channel structure that allows air to flow, eliminating drag and promoting aerodynamics. The attention to road safety could not be missing, ensured by reflective details.
The bib trousers are a multi-panel summer garment, with fabrics chosen to offer adequate muscle support. The central part of the crotch is made of Matrix fabric, a certified Lycra with high density and multidirectional elasticity, with a calendered surface that promotes adherence to the saddle. The “Leg Comfort System” technology on the rear bottom allows you to adapt to different muscle conformations while pedaling.
The raw-cut “S-Stability System” shaped insert with light silicone dots ensures crease-free stability and further promotes aerodynamics. The microfibre straps give a pleasant feel and maximum adherence to the body with a good return, while the elastic mesh back/lumbar part promotes breathability and quick drying. 4HF pad: applied with Tri-Stitch stitching which improves elasticity and reduces tears due to wear, gives calibrated support to the most stressed areas.
Alessia PiccoloCEO of APG, the company to which Alé belongs: “When a champion like Sonny Colbrelli chooses you to launch his own line of garments, it is pure pleasure and a lot of pride. We put the best of our textile technology at his disposal, to create an outfit that lived up to his goals.”
This is the comment of Sonny Colbrelli: “I have raced with the Alé bosses for a good part of my career. When I was at Bahrain Victorious I had the opportunity to see first-hand the quality of the fabrics, the excellent fit and the technology behind their clothing. By dressing Alé I achieved my greatest victories and it seemed natural that my first Capsule Collection was created together with them!”
The Sonny Colbrelli Capsule Collection is already available online on alecycling.com. It will then reach the best cycling shops.
The retail price of the shirt is of 99.90 euros and 119.90 euros for the trousers.
