Pedal Power

From Helsinki to São Paulo, from Seattle to Tokyo: cycling is in. Some 200 years after its invention, the bicycle is re-conquering city centres all over the world. For ALBERTO - the trouser specialist with special expertise in functional clothing - this is reason enough to make the daily city tour of smart city dwellers safer, more comfortable and, above all, more stylish. For example, the Mönchengladbach label has developed two collections with "Bike" for men and "Bicicletta" for women, which are not only able to compete effortlessly with any weather conditions but are also beyond all doubt superior in terms of fashion.

Fashion meets Function. Detail meets quality. Experienced cyclists have long agreed: ALBERTO Bikepants are the first of their kind to play in a league of their own. While conventional trousers are quickly challenged with the movements of biking in the city, and/or leave something to be desired in terms of function and appearance, the original styles from ALBERTO once again prove that there are other ways of doing things.

Highly elastic Superfit Gabardine Chinos, for example, are timeless label classics in blue and beige. A further IT-Piece for every city biker: the extra-light and comprehensively heat-regulating, dirt-repellent 3xDRY® Cooler in blue and black. Rough & Raw is the motto for jeans. The deep blue and slim cut version is Dynamic Superfit Bi-Stretch with an elasticity of over 40 percent and offers maximum freedom of movement every time you push the pedals, while the water-repellent ecorepel®-denim lives up to its status as a real collection highlight. This season's programme also includes jeans made of extra-robust, particularly tear-resistant and highly elastic Hardtex-Denim. The style is available either in an elaborate vintage wash or as a clean stone wash with discreet scraping. And finally, there's Dynamic Superfit Coolmax Denim, a functional, breathable pant that looks like jeans on the outside, while Coolmax cooling, fast-drying fibres on the inside ensure that moisture is quickly wicked away from the skin - perfect as shorts or in a long-leg version. The mix with Dynamic Superfit & Luxury T400 fibres guarantees optimum freedom of movement with simultaneously maximum form stability.

Ready for anything
Of course, the original ALBERTO Bike Pants are not only high-end materials that can withstand any weather and cover a distance of at least 3,000 km before the first signs of fatigue appear. The trousers also score stylistically across the board. The innovative, high cut in the posterior area and an integrated slip band on the waistband reliably prevent a shirt from slipping out. Cleverly positioned reflector strips on the back pockets as well as reflective elements in the form of Alberto lettering, and a stylised bike and/or narrow stripes on the trouser turn-ups ensure more safety at all times of the day. The look is rounded off by a leather patch with theme embossing and a waistband with bicycle illustrations.

ALBERTO regards itself as a culturally influenced pants label in motion, developed for people on the move. People for whom quality, comfort and freedom play an important role, people who seek relevance and find style. Founded some 100 years ago with the goal of becoming a dynamic, innovative presence in the international fashion world and constantly setting new standards, the brand has remained true to its founding ethos to this day. Contemporary craftsmanship and design testify to this as well as the company's own concept store or the use of intelligent, voice-controlled interaction systems. So, what began as a small pants manufacturer, has long since established itself with numerous collections - for urban cyclists, for example: A brand that aspires to anticipate the needs of its customers and unite them into an inspiring lifestyle concept that goes beyond all trends.
