Albion’s Autumn/Winter 2018 range is inspired by colours found in the great British outdoors, and the performance demanded of cycling clothing and equipment designed for long days in the saddle during the cold British winter.
For Autumn/Winter 18 our Long Sleeve Jersey returns in two new colourways, Tarn Blue and Drystone Grey, and we’ve also restocked our popular Orange and Military Olive colourways.
New to the range for this season is the Albion Insulated Gilet. Constructed using a lightweight, water and wind resistant, breathable performance fabric made in Japan and Clo™ Eco Vivo recycled insulation, it combines warmth, breathability and packability, using award-winning recycled insulation technology in a versatile outer layer created for riding in colder temperatures.
This season also sees the introduction of wool to the Albion range, with a long sleeve merino base layer and a wool hat for use off the bike being added to our inventory.
Inspired by the adventurers of yesteryear, our midweight, long sleeve base layer in a classic cream colour is constructed using a premium Italian Merino wool blend to deliver softness, warmth, body temperature regulation, moisture wicking and odour resistance. The Merino is blended with a polyamide to ensure rapid drying, shape retention and increased durability, utilising the latest merino blend technology to create a base layer designed to sit under our long sleeve jersey for riding all day in colder conditions.
The makers of our wool hats have been creating traditional highland headwear on the same site for over 150 years. Made in Scotland in the famous ‘Bonnet Toun’ of Stewarton and using 100% wool, the Albion wool hat is a vital addition to any outdoor enthusiast’s wardrobe.
We’ve added leg warmers to our range this winter, made using the same Thermoroubaix performance fabric as our arm warmers and which have reflective Albion logos for increased visibility. Our arm warmers have also been updated with the addition of reflective Albion logos.
Albion Bib Shorts are available in black. Constructed using premium fabric from the legendary M.I.T.I. and Chamois technology from Elastic Interface’s ultra range of premium high density foam pads for long distance riding, the Albion Bib Shorts utilise a reduced panel, anatomical design with compression fit to deliver comfort and performance for your longest days in the saddle.
Our Made in Britain range of waterproof rider’s pouches and tool rolls are available in various colourways. Made in England using fabric milled in Scotland by Halley Stevensons, our riding accessories keep your essentials dry and protected, whatever the weather throws at you.
Albion cycling caps are available in yellow, light blue, navy blue, and orange.
This season we headed to the Yorkshire Dales in Northern England to put our new range to the test. View the full set of photographs here.
