Albion – Spring / Summer 2018
Albion’s Spring/Summer 2018 range is inspired by the great tradition of mountaineering in Britain, and the performance demanded of cycling clothing and equipment designed for long days in the saddle in search of vertical ascent.
This season sees Albion introduce the Mountain Jersey to their range, a new ultra-lightweight short sleeve cycling jersey made using an innovative high stretch, breathable, moisture wicking performance fabric. Weighing just 111 grams for a size medium, and with mesh side panels for additional temperature management, laser cut sleeves, and a YKK reverse coil zip, we’ve used the latest fabric and manufacturing technology in a jersey designed for comfort and performance when riding in warm and hot weather conditions. The jersey comes in three colourways – Navy/Olive, Navy/Orange, and Teal/Olive.
This season also sees the introduction of Albion’s first pair of bib shorts. Constructed using premium fabric from the legendary M.I.T.I., and with chamois technology from Elastic Interface’s ultra range of premium high-density foam pads for long distance riding, the Albion bib shorts utilise a reduced panel, anatomical design with compression fit to deliver comfort and performance for your longest days in the saddle.
The range is designed to be complemented by their existing product inventory, notably the packable gilet. Using Japanese fabric technology, the Albion gilet is a windproof and water-resistant lightweight outer layer which packs down easily into a jersey pocket, making it an ideal outer layer to take with you on long days when altitude and conditions can change quickly.
Albion have also continued to expand their range of accessories, with a waterproof rider’s pouch and their tool roll now available in black. Made in England using fabric milled in Scotland by Halley Stevensons, designed to keep your essentials dry and protected, whatever the weather throws at you.
Albion cycling caps are available in light blue, navy blue, orange and cream.
