Tyrol Future Day 2016

Starting into Tyrol’s Future Day 2016

We last were on an exhibition some time ago, so we were really excited to be part of Tyrol’s strategic Future Day 2016. Innovative companies from Tyrol and groundbreaking research projects from Tyrol’s academic schools were in the centre of attention at this event. Here’s the video “Leading by Research and Development” with some impressions from Tyrol’s Future Day 2016.

Leading by Research and Development

Being a part of this ensamble of economy and research comes naturally to us. Since the founding of polychromelab we followed a two track strategy: Design, manufacturing and sale via polychromelab’s online shop and store in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis on the one hand, empirical research and structured product development in the Alpine Proof Outdoor Lab on the other hand. Unfortunately, as it is in modern times, one has less time to make one’s statement and this is why customers often get our two track strategy. So we were very happy about the fact that there was plenty of time and interest on Tyrol’s Future Day at Congress Igls to present our mission for the future of polychromelab (and apparel).

Here are some impressions of Future Day 2016. Photocredit: Land Tirol / Berger.

Further information on this event you’ll find in this German article by Land Tirol here.

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.

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:
