Ale R-EV1 Velocity HD Race Bib Shorts
The Ale R-EV1 Velocity HD Race Bib Shorts are their most aerodynamically refined shorts yet.
Wind-tunnel fabrics let you speed along the road with minimal drag while a top-rated 8H Velocity seat pad ensures superb comfort in racing and training. Racing is of course about getting to the line first, but saving energy and maximising power output to its fullest could give you the winning edge. The R-EV1 Velocity HD Race Bib Shorts are here to let you do just that.
Cutting-edge Aero Flash fabric is used, and this imparts two key characteristics. Firstly, its wave structure, tested in the wind-tunnel, provides low drag aerodynamics. Bonded seams are also used to keep the airflow smooth.
The unique combination of different yarns in Aero Flash also significantly reduces drying times, leaving you fresh even after extended periods of hard riding. E1 Absorption technology is also deployed; this fabric absorbs your sweat and rapidly moves it away from the body for exceptional comfort. This unique combination of fabrics keeps you brilliantly comfortable when the pace is hot and ensures slippery aerodynamics as speed increases.
8H Velocity Seat Pad Created for comfort on your longest and fastest rides, the 8H Velocity Seat Pad uses 100 Kg/m density open cell foam through the areas that see the most pressure. At 12mm thick it provides support of the sit bones and takes away the sting of rough road surfaces. Small perforations in the foam enhance both ventilation and breathability, keeping you dry and fresh for the long haul.
Body Mapping. Bonded technology. Zero Friction.
CS Stability System. 8H Velocity Seat Pad. 58% Polyamide (Nylon), 23% Polyester, 19% Elastane (Spandex).

Ale Bib Shorts
Alé (pronounced similar to Allez, and not like Ale) is an Italian clothing brand located in Castel d'Ario, Lombardy, which began life as recent as 2013. It's parent company APG has much experience in manufacturing performance cycle wear since 1986, for companies such as Nike, and kit for teams such as Discovery and Motorola. Sister companies include DMT (cycling shoes) and (Mario) Cipollini bikes, so it's to say they know what they are doing. Their product ranges are aimed at road cyclists, and manufacturing still takes place in Italy, as opposed to using far eastern factories. The colours used in their garments tend to be bright (and possibly a touch garish in some cases!), but have proved popular amongst European cyclists. Wiggle were one of the first retailers in the UK to stock the Alé ranges, which are slowly gaining a reputation for being expensive yet quality garments.
