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.

I originally found this deal at Wiggle, who are widely established as one of the biggest cycle retailers in the UK. The first incarnation of this giant was as a small bike shop based in Portsmouth, named Butler Cycles... Find out more details about Wiggle here.
