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.

News from 2610 meters

We’re very proud about our latest acquirement on 2610 meters: since a few days there’s a bike next to the torsi for  product testing. Now we have the possibility to do research on both human and textile. We will explore how materials that were exposed to alpine conditions for months will interact with workload. Hopefully we’ll get answers to the questions whether the polychromelab materials is working under the most extreme conditions and what we can improve.

Of course everybody who likes to try it out himself is welcome to do some kilometers on the bike in our alpine laboratory next to the Glungezer Hütte.

Finally – One jacket for everything!
Regardless wether I am on a trail right now or on the Piazza of Torbole sipping a Cappuccino, with this reversible jacket I’ll always feel comfortable! Simply reverse is a good principle: when I turn inside out, I am prepared for mostly anything, and I have the chance to leave some article of clothing at home.
Cheers, Andreas
