Cycling jacket exhibited on Eurobike Friedrichshafen

Pedaled cycling jacket wins Eurobike Award 2014

It was more than one year ago when Pedaled and polychromelab decided to design a cycling jacket, which stands out as a real functional jacket. There was hard work to do to create an awarded jacket, because demands on functional jackets in the bicycling branch are high.

Using the unique reversible fabric by polychromelab one can conceptualize a reversible jacket which can cool body temperature down on one side and – reversed to the other side – is able to warm. The fabric is highly breathable and additionally a 100% windproof and waterproof – so the reversible fabric is the best requirement for a high-tech cycling jacket.

The japanese designer Hideto Suzuki started to design a functional designer cycling jacket with the reversible fabric. For his effort he wins the Eurobike Award 2014 in collaboration with Pedaled and polychromelab.

Here are some pictures of the reversible cycling jacket on the Eurobike 2014 in Friedrichshafen at the Pedaled booth and the statement of the jury about the Eurobike Award.

The probably most important european cycling exhibition took place in Friedrichshafen in late August. On the exhibition one can gaze on the latest trends in the cycling section – most importantly Pedaled prestented the new reversible jacket in collaboration with polychromelab.

Naturally a prize giving ceremony is an exciting event, so we can look into the happy faces of Hideto Suzuki and Michele Stinco. Hideto wears the awarded sports jacket and Michele wears the Roccia Rossa design jacket. Memories that will last a lifetime. Enjoy the pictures.

Polychromelab Wins Tyrolean Innovation Award 2012

Video of Tyrolean Innovation Award 2012

Have fun with the video of the Tyrolean Innovation Award 2012!

This is the jury’s statement:

Category: technical innovation / polychromeab, Michele Stinco, Hall in Tirol

Top material, which warms and cools by textile physics. If you are traveling in the mountains, one is often faced with short-term weatherchanges, but also with large temperature fluctuations that can sometimes be 20 or 25 degrees celsius. Who is dressed incorrectly, sweats or shivering usually very fast and raises the load on the human body. Therefore Michele Stinco has developed a reversible laminate which is, made up as a jacket, windproof, waterproof and breathable – but does temperature stabilization by cooling or warming through textile physics with membrane technology providing natural materials. Thus the jacket shifts the power limits of membranes very positively.

The jacket can – as required – be worn on both sides. By 2011, there was no single-layer jacket that must comply with these requirements and could be manufactured in series.

Hybrid Jacket Outdoor Industry Award

Polychromelab’s Hybrid Jacket Outdoor Industry Award 2012

Polychromelab’s hybrid jacket wins Outdoor Industry Award 2012. This hybrid jacket outdoor is our first jacket and will be available in spring 2013. We’re really happy about winning this prestigious award for our outdoor hybrid jacket. So let’s see what the jury says about polychromelab’s jackets:

“We were convinced by this jacket because of the hybrid concept: it is a multifunctional apparel combining functionality, comfortness, intelligent fabric creation and high quality fashioning, beeing easy on the eye at the same moment. This is why this fashionable hybrid jacket is fanciable for the growing number of urban traget groups, that consider sports not only as an extreme condition’s activity but rather as a part of their everyday lifestyle.”

So this is why the jury gave our outdoor hybrid jacket the Outdoor Industry Award 2012. If you like to know who are the winners of other categories, here’s is a detailed report on Freizeitalpin.at:
