Reflecting the cols we ride in its design, the Albertine gilet has a fully windproof front section to ensure the perfect balance between protection and breathability. Air pockets trap body heat to provide warmth in colder conditions but the insulation is stable enough to be paired with a breathable shell and liner fabric to allow excess heat and moisture vapour to rapidly escape during periods of intense effort.
The rear section is constructed from a technical merino polar fleece fabric and takes advantage of all of the wool's natural thermoregulating properties as well as being odour resistant. The gilet has added stretch to produce a slim silouette and enable maximum performance whatever the riding position on the bike.
Along with a single chest pocket, Albertine has two oversized rear cargo pockets and a zipped side pocket for ride essentials. Styled with a chest patch logo along and contrasting pocket flaps, the gilet also has a two way YKK zip, brushed interior collar lining and a reflective element on the bottom of the pockets for increased safety when riding in low light.

Merino has been proven to breath, wick moisture and regulate body temperature more effectively than synthetics. Unlike some other wool, high-grade merino also has a fine micron count which makes it super soft and comfortable against the skin.
We have carefully selected fabrics that combine the best of what both nature and science have to offer. Our merino jerseys offer the unparalleled comfort, fantastic thermoregulation and odour resistant properties of the natural wool enhanced with the additional strength, durability and rapid drying capability of proprietary synthetic fibres.
