Cycling jacket exhibited on Eurobike Friedrichshafen

Pedaled cycling jacket wins Eurobike Award 2014

It was more than one year ago when Pedaled and polychromelab decided to design a cycling jacket, which stands out as a real functional jacket. There was hard work to do to create an awarded jacket, because demands on functional jackets in the bicycling branch are high.

Using the unique reversible fabric by polychromelab one can conceptualize a reversible jacket which can cool body temperature down on one side and – reversed to the other side – is able to warm. The fabric is highly breathable and additionally a 100% windproof and waterproof – so the reversible fabric is the best requirement for a high-tech cycling jacket.

The japanese designer Hideto Suzuki started to design a functional designer cycling jacket with the reversible fabric. For his effort he wins the Eurobike Award 2014 in collaboration with Pedaled and polychromelab.

Here are some pictures of the reversible cycling jacket on the Eurobike 2014 in Friedrichshafen at the Pedaled booth and the statement of the jury about the Eurobike Award.

Outdoor Sommer 2014 mit polychromelab – Teil 1

Draußen mit einer Outdoorjacke von polychromelab

Der Sommer ist nun langsam vorüber und der Herbst klopft an die Tür. Obwohl der Sommer nicht so richtig in die Gänge gekommen ist, können wir einiges erzählen. Hier ein paar Rückblicke über diesen Frühling und Sommer.

Alles begann sehr nass, doch dank unserer umweltfreundlicher Beschichtung von HeiQ Barrier sind unsere Outdoorjacken wasserdicht ohne giftige PFCs.

Die ersten Sonnenstrahlen wurden dann gleich beim Bouldern ausgenutzt. Draußen mit der Roccia Rossa Designjacke.

Im späten Frühling gab es dann einige extreme Trailruns von Michele Stinco und Elisabeth Frey.

Johannes Rohm flüchtet vor dem kalten Wetter in Mitteleuropa ins kalte Norwegen, um in atemberaubender Umgebung Ski zu fahren.

Dass die Alta Quota Wendejacke perfekt für Reisen rund um die Welt ist, teilen uns glückliche Kunden aus ihrem Urlaub in Hawaii auf dem Manu Kea mit.

Bleib dran, denn unsere Sommerrevue geht bald weiter. Ganz wichtig, teilt die Bilder auf Facebook, Twitter, Google+ und Pinterest, damit eure Freunde auch von den Vorteilen hochwertiger, fairer Produkte erfahren. Danke 🙂

Shepherd Matthias Aichner Alta Quota Summer – Part 2

2013 – Matthias Aichner is on the alpine shieling for months now.  Secludedly he spends every day outside in nature. The first part of his story you can read here: shepherd Matthias Aichner part 2.

Outside with a mountain jacket

Matthias uses the possibility to go hiking on the near mountains. As a change from tending cattles he goes mountaineering with the Alta Quota mountain jacket. During the exhausting way up the silver side on the outside of the jacket reflects uv rays of the sun to cool body temperature down. He feels noticeably cooler and is still protected from wind and weather.

On top of the mountain Matthias simply reverses the outdoor jacket to the black side. On his way down the body regenerates and temperature decreases. The black side of the jacket absorps uv rays of the sun and this way the reversible jacket warms noticeably the user.

Relaxing on an alpine shieling

Protected from wind and weather this good Matthias arrives safely on the alpine shieling. Outside in the nature of the tyrolean alps he acknowledges a qualitative product. After this hard day he enjoys the last sunshine of the day lying on the pasture.

The story of the Alta Quota shepherd summer 2014 by Thomas Quarta is available here. If you want to buy an Alta Quota mountain jacket to enjoy nature the same way as Matthias, then visit our polychromelab concept store.
