AN ITALIAN HEART
Our production facility is located on the outskirts of the picturesque northern Italian city of Verona. Surrounded by Gothic architecture and rolling green pre-alpine pastures.
It’s here that some of Italy's most talented tailors manufacture more
than 2500 cycling garments per day. In-house production allows us superior control over the entire production process enabling unsurpassed quality and detailing
Alé is one of the largest cycling apparel manufacturers in Europe.
In 2013, after 30 years of stitching high-performance custom clothing for some of the biggest names in cycling, Alé used its technology, experience and passion to launch its own consumer clothing brand.
With the desire to bring something new and fresh to cycling, Alé entered the market with a bold fluoro style, which it’s now known for across the globe. Since then, Alé has been injecting a fresh spectrum of much-needed brightness into the world of cycling with its signature neon yellows, vivid greens and hot pinks.
Innovation and Design
The Ale team has a laser focus on innovation in production, materials and design. Constantly looking for new ways that will ensure our garments provide the functionality, comfort and performance our athletes need.
Our products are developed and tested in our research laboratory and wind tunnel. Ale designers are always hunting out new and innovative fabrics and solutions that will look good and power our cyclists to reach their goals.
We combine this in-house testing with the insights and on-road testing of our professional athletes to produce the ultimate cycling kit. Like some of the greatest cyclists of all time, Alé embodies true cycling passion by boldly pushing boundaries and being at the forefront of technology.
Alé is technical sponsor to a wide network of professional cycling and triathlon teams around the world, including Men's and Women's Pro Teams Alé BTC Ljubljana (formerly Alé Cipollini), Groupama FDJ and Movistar. These athletes are essential to the development of our products, through collaboration, input and constant feedback regarding design, development through on-road testing.
Alé is dedicated to improving the visibility of women’s cycling, not
only through our bold colours but through our professional cycling team Alé LTB Ljubljana. Our women's designs and chamois are engineered from the ground up to work seamlessly with the female form on the bike.
