London - November 10 2021 - Albion today announces the launch of Zoa, a new range of technical clothing for cyclists and the adventurous

The Albion Zoa range aims to set a new standard in outdoor clothing for cyclists, utilising the world’s best performance fabrics in a range of premium products suitable for multiple riding disciplines and for both on and off bike use.

Albion has partnered with Pertex®, the world leading lightweight and durable technical fabrics brand, on the fabrics for the Zoa range.

The new range consists of the Zoa Insulated Jacket, the Zoa Rain Shell, and the Zoa Burner, and has been designed as a system that can be used together, or as standalone products, depending on the conditions and activity.

The Zoa range is the culmination of many months’ thinking, design, refining and testing, and we’re excited to now be bringing these products to market. Zoa products answer a direct need for cycling-specific clothing geared towards the outdoors and adventure, and feature a number of considered details to make time spent on or off the bike using them easier and more comfortable. Working with the best fabric, insulation and trim suppliers in the market, and with a focus on responsible sourcing, we believe that Zoa can set a new standard for modern, technical and versatile cycling products for both on and off bike use.  Graeme Raeburn, Lead Designer at Albion

Pertex® is the market leader in lightweight technical fabrics for use in outdoor garments. Founded in 1979, Pertex® is partnered with some of the most prestigious and successful brands in the outdoor industry including The North Face, Patagonia, Marmot, Rab, Salomon, Outdoor Research and Kathmandu among others.

Pertex® Quantum uses a tightly woven structure to provide a light and soft fabric that allows insulation to fully loft.

Precisely constructed from incredibly fine yarns, Pertex® Quantum fabrics are designed to trap still air and improve the efficiency of insulation.

A durable water repellent (DWR) finish sheds light rain and snow to provide additional weather protection.

Pertex® Shield Air uses an air permeable nanofibre membrane, to provide extremely breathable waterproof protection.

The Shield Air membrane has a precisely tailored nanofibre structure, with a vast network of nanoscale pores. Allowing air to pass through for exceptional breathability and venting, without the need to build up excess humidity.

Combining this durably waterproof membrane with lightweight, soft and quiet face fabrics, Pertex® Shield Air provides unparalleled levels of comfort in even the most extreme conditions.
