The collection, Q36.5’s first not dedicated to intense cycling activity, has been designed for the maniacal and obsessive cyclist who knows how to apply the performance lessons learnt on the bike to every other moment of their day, from commuting, to post-race recovery, to travel and work.
The result is an essential collection of radical Made in Italy urban sportswear – including active trousers and shorts, gilet, jacket and sweatshirt – dominated by the use of high density woven stretch fabrics, technology which Q36.5 introduced to the cycling world in 2013 to create a new feeling in the history of competitive cycling clothing. The gilet and jacket employ Q36.5’s radical new Air Insulation knitted fleece construction.
The entire Crossover Equipment, including fabric weaving, is produced within a 300km² radius of the company’s headquarters in Bolzano. Particular attention has been paid to collaboration with partners who limit use of water during weaving as well as employing recycled fibers where most advantageous.
