Alé Green Road: cyclists save the world twice. By cycling we do not produce polluting emissions from cars, we move cleanly without impacting the environment. However, this is not enough today, there is an equally big problem that in recent years, after decades of carelessness on the part of man, it has become a global issue: plastic. It is estimated that every year 570 thousand tons of plastic waste ends up in the sea, it is as if 33.800 bottles were thrown into the sea every minute according to the WWF. The only way to reduce this phenomenon is to consume more consciously and recycle, to use the plastic we already have in a virtuous circle, not a vicious one.
Alé has therefore decided to make his contribution by creating the Green Road line with recycled plastic, for an even more eco-friendly cycling. Green Road garments (knitwear, trousers and socks) are made of 90% recycled fabrics, yarns and elastic and have a low environmental impact. A significant percentage of the fabrics used are certified by the Global Recycle Standard (GRS), a non-profit organization engaged in the certification of products made from recycled materials.
GREEN ROAD JERSEY The main fabric is Light Green Microforato (GRS certified), increases ventilation and promotes drying. The back is light, breathable and durable, thanks to the Micro Back Green fabric. The raw cut sleeves, made of Skin 120 Green, allow maximum freedom of movement and better aerodynamics. The 3 back pockets have a reflective insert to be more visible on the road and a fourth pocket on the side, to store waste such as bar paper and gel.
GREEN ROAD BIBSHORT Denali Green fabric (GRS certified) is used for the legs and has a good muscular compression thanks to its multidirectional elasticity. The suspenders are made of Kimball Green, a mesh fabric with great elasticity and resistance, and the Green Elastic, which guarantees functionality and hold in the suspenders. The bottom leg insert, in Gripper Green, has a sharp cut and dresses like a second skin. These pants have the new GREEN 4H pad for men and GREEN W4H for women, with a green fabric for the top layer and a thickness of 12mm to protect both on the road and off-road.
GREEN SOCKS These socks are made with Green yarn (GRS certified), breathable and light. Cuff 16 cm.
All garments have UPF50 + protection and green details that emphasize the eco-friendly spirit of the line. Even the packaging will be "green": Alé is working to create a biodegradable bag for both the shirt and the trousers.
Green Road garments belong to the PRR line of the 2020 summer collection and are available for both men and women, currently they will be used by the Alé Cipollini women's team for the Rosa tour.
