All the information you need on fabrics, chamois' and the points of difference between each of the custom clothing ranges.
Quick-dry fabric consisting of multi-filament micro-polyester, which confers a comfortable fit without constraint. Weight 120 gr/mq.
Fabric with a ribbed/channel surface texture that creates an air turbulence effect, to reduce the air pressure on the body: (Golf ball effect). This translates in the reduction of the air drag by 12% (Wind Tunnel Test). Weight 200 gr/mq.
Quick-dry fabric with triangle structure, with the insertion of a carbon yarn in the fabric weave. The carbon favours the sensation of wellness, absorbing and dissipating atmospheric electric discharges, and preventing them to stay around the body. Moreover, it protects the body against the absorption of static energy, electro-smog and UV rays. It is naturally anti-bacterial and inhibits the development of bacteria that cause bad odours. The carbon fibres also improve the evaporation of humidity, maintaining the skin dry and cool. Weight 110 gr/mq.

Eyelet fabric with carbon in the structure to improve performance and breathability thanks to small holes in the surface. The carbon is used to improve wellness, dissipating the electric charges in the atmosphere, and thanks to its anti-bacterial characteristics. Moreover, the carbon improves blood circulation and reduces the accumulation of lactic acid in the muscles. Weight 160 gr/mq.
The new heavy WBA fabric is 3-layer coupled fabric. The exterior is made
with a smooth knitted fabric to protect the cyclist also in bad weather conditions.
The central layer features a Windtex elastic membrane that protects against wind but lets out the sweat. A water repellent soft and smooth pile closer to the skin, retains the body heat protecting the athlete against cold eliminating the skin humidity quickly. Weight 300 gr/mq.
Fabric with highly breathable carbon, boasting the ability to improve the elimination of sweat from the skin, to maintain a constant temperature throughout the entire cycling activity. The carbon in the fabrics favours the sensation of wellness in different ways: it absorbs and dissipates the atmospheric electric charges, preventing them to remain around the body.
Moreover, it reduces the concentration of lactic acid during the activity and improves blood circulation, proving oxygen to the cells more effectively. Last but not least, it protects the body from the absorption of static energy, electro smog and UV rays. It is naturally anti-bacterial and inhibits the development of bacteria that cause bad odours. The carbon fibres also improve the evaporation of humidity, maintaining the skin dry and cool. Weight 135 gr/mq.
Elastic system made in coupled double-layer fabric in which the internal part boasts a carbon fabric while on the outside, the fabric is micro-perforated.
Used for the bottom of jerseys and jackets, this shaped elastic system effectively maintains the garment in position while cycling with a perfect fit.

It is the new (50 mm) elastic band used in the bottom leg of the shorts.
LG STABILITY SYSTEM™ can be printed and is ultra-light, and maintains the garment in position thanks to the silicon filaments that interlace through the fabric.
This composition creates a perfect amount compression without constrictions.
The new light WBA fabric is 3-layer coupled fabric. The exterior is made with a smooth knitted fabric to protect the cyclist also in bad weather conditions. The central layer features a Windtex elastic membrane that protects against wind but lets out the sweat. A light knitted fabric is closer to the skin, protecting the athletes against the upcoming cold. Weight 210 gr/mq.
ALÉ Lycra is used in shorts with and without bibs. Its structure is particularly indicated to favour quick-drying and the evaporation of humidity.
Thanks to its compactness, the fabric is highly covering and supports the muscles. Weight 220 gr/mq. UPF 50 +.
Incredibly light, this fabric is a polyester micro-fibre “Finezza 44” that offers a micro-compression and high coverage. The internal layer is structured to create air pockets that favour breathability, while the micro-perforations on the external surfaces improve ventilation and quick-dry. Weight 130gr/mq. UPF 50+.
A jersey material selected for its excellent elasticity, absorbing properties and colour solidity. Thanks to the particularly stretch structure, it adapts to the in motion body and returns to its original shape after each use.
It is subject to a hydrophilic treatment that favours the dissipation of humidity, in fact sweat is quickly eliminated from the body, to maintain the cyclist dry when riding. Weight 130 gr/mq.
3-layer light fabric in micro-fibre polyester with proof internal wind membrane. This special membrane is elastic and ensures resistance against wind and water, without compromising breathability. Weight 120 gr/mq. Water column 8000 mm/24h.
Wide-weaving mesh used in the braces of Sports shorts. The structure characterised by large holes allows to perfectly handle humidity and the softness of the fabric improves comfort. Weight 180 gr/mq.
Shield is a certified Lycra which is produced using exclusively ultra-matt polyester yarns “Finezza 40”. This is an ideal fabric to produce printed sports clothing articles thanks to its resistance to colour. Even after many uses and washing cycles, the colours remain lively and do not fade. The special matt polyester yarn is highly covering. Weight 240 gr/mq. UPF 50 +.
A winter micro-fibre that effectively handles sweat, still remaining highly breathable.
The internal brushed surface creates air pockets that isolate the skin from the exterior, thus retaining the body heat. It is the ideal fabric for tights and accessories, where freedom of movement and thermal insulation are a must.
The articles made with Superoubaix® boast a light compression effect that massages the muscle while pedalling. Weight 245 gr/mq. UPF 50+.
Polyester fabric with elastomer for printing, used in body suits thanks to its high elasticity. Its characteristics make it suitable to create extremely fitting articles because it is light and follows the athlete’s anatomy, for improved performances. Weight 210 gr/mq.
Elasticized micro-mesh fabric, used for the bib of the shorts. The high elasticity of the fabric confers utmost comfort and excellent fit. Weight 170 gr/mq.
3-layer coupled techno fabric used for winter jackets and characterised by high thermal capacity and quick-dry. The external smooth and aerodynamic part
is extremely fine and compact to improve the air flow. The internal surface, a thermal sponge in micro-polyester, boasts a hexagonal structure that favours thermal insulation and breathability. The E-vent membrane ensures dryness and direct body ventilation for guaranteed comfort. Weight 440 gr/mq.
Highly technological and breathable wind and waterproof material, since it blocks the elements but it allows excess humidity to be expelled, so the cyclist remain dry with a constant body temperature.
