Pedal Power

Cycling is in. Around 200 years after its invention, the bike finally has conquered back the inner cities. For ALBERTO - the pants specialist with special expertise for functional clothing - it's reason enough to give smart city dwellers' daily city tour a bit more style and functionality. For the 2019 autumn/winter season, the Mönchengladbach label is once again presenting two collections with 'Bike' for men and 'Bicicletta' for women, which are not only able to compete casually with any weather conditions but are also unquestionably superior in terms of fashion.

Fashion meets function. Detail meets quality. Experienced cyclists have long agreed: Cycling pants from ALBERTO are in a league of their own. Because while conventional pants are quickly overwhelmed with the movement requirements of biking and/or leave something to be desired functionally as well as visually, the styles of ALBERTO once again show that there’s another way.

Highly flexible Superfit Gabardine chinos aren't just timeless label classics, they're also available for both genders alongside Navy and Military for the winter season for the first time in a muted dark Camel tone. A completely new arrival are chinos made from Waterrepellent Climate Cotton. The pants are made of a light cotton/polyester/spandex blend and are water and dirt repellent, temperature compensating, and extremely easy to care for and iron. In addition, they score high marks across the board in terms of fashion. The main reason for this is the contrasting material. A fast carding machine sets grey mottled accents to the classic cotton look of the upper material. The pants are available in gray and black as well as in navy. Also back: the extra-light and all-over heat-regulating and dirt-repellent 3xDRY® Cooler in blue and black. Rough & Raw is the motto for jeans. The deep blue slim cut version comes as Dynamic Superfit Bi-Stretch with a degree of elasticity of over 40 percent and thus offers maximum freedom of movement every time you pedal, while the water-repellent ecorepel® denim fully lives up to its status as a true highlight of the collection in the coming winter season. In addition, after the successful start last summer, a pair of jeans made of extra-robust, extremely tear-resistant and highly elastic Hardtex denim are now part of the range. The style comes either in an elaborate vintage wash or as a clean stone wash with subtle scraping.

All pants are equipped with reflectors on loops, back pockets or on the hem, and the men's models are additionally equipped with an anti-slip band in the waistband.
