Nalini, which creates the clothing kits for teams like Columbia-HTC, Rabobank and Liquigas among others, has a few new high-end fall/winter men’s and women’s cycling jackets, tights, jerseys and accessories coming down the pipe.  All we have at the moment are these lo-res teaser images (I think they’re holding out until Interbike…unless Gary wants to “leak” a few good ones to us. hint, hint).

Shown above is the Palombo Jacket, a unisex, stretchable winter jacket for very cold riding (15º to 43º F) made from Nalini’s Mantovent and Vuelta/Lycra fabrics.  It’s designed to offer a snug fit and protect against wind and wet (though not water proof).  It has an inner vest component to add warmth, a soft-pile collar, zippered rear pocket and reflective bands.  MSRP $350, and it’s also available in Black and White.

For more moderate – but still chilly – riding conditions (43-54F), the Nalini Agulia Jacket is the ideal choice. Made from the same stretchy Nalini Mantovent / Vuelta fabrics as the Palombo, the Agulia also features an antidroplet treatment, wind protection, a tight fit, soft-pile collar, reflective bands, and three back pockets. Also, available in black and white – MSRP $290.

The third featured jacket in Nalini’s Fall/Winter collection is the stylish and warm Nalini Cefalo (15-43F). Made from two proprietary fabrics from MOA Sport (Nalini’s parent company), the Cefalo features Nalini PET, a fabric made from recycled plastic bottles, and Snail Superleggero, an advanced, ultralightweight material the delivers remarkable breathability. The jacket’s technical details include a snug cycling fit, pile collar, rubberized band at the bottom, reflective tape, and three back pockets. Colors include orange/black, black/black, white/black, red/white, white/red, and blue/black – MSRP $200.

For riders who prefer a thermal vest, Nalini offers the Nalini Spada vest. Again using Nalini Mantovent fabrics, the Spada features a stretchy tight fit, breathable mesh insert, anti-droplet treatment, wind protection, pile collar, reflective bands, retractable tail, and three back pockets. Consider it the ultimate winter thermal vest. Available in black, white, and red – MSRP $230.

nalini 70 camuso long sleeve winter cycling-jersey

Nalini long-sleeve winter jerseys equal its jackets for style, function, and technical sophistication. The Pagro is a medium-weight (54-64F) jersey stitched from Nalini MantoDry and PET recycled fabrics, which wick moisture away from the skin to maintaining warmth and comfort. The Pagro also features a close fit, a rubberized band at the bottom, reflective tape, and three back pockets. Available in black, white/black, red, orange, white/red, and blue – MSRP $150.

For a touch of 1970s nostalgia, the Nalini ’70 Camuso jersey delivers performance and style. Made from breathable MantoDry fabric, the Nalini ’70 Camuso is an ideal choice for early spring or late fall riding – think cyclocross training. It features a full-length zip, silicon gripper at the bottom, three back pockets and a cycling fit. Available in black, black/grey, black/grey/white, red/grey/black, blue/red/white, light blue/orange/blue, grey/yellow/black, grey/pink/black – MSRP $150. A women’s version is available, too – the Nalini ’70 Sogliola – MSRP $150.

For maximum garment flexibility, Nalini also offers the Aquila jersey with removable sleeves. Offering wind protection and warmth (43-54F), the full-season Aquila’s detachable sleeves can be removed to form a vest. It also features a cell-phone pocket, silicon gripper, and reflective tape. A great all-around winter jersey. Available in black/grey, grey/white, white/black, and blue/white – MSRP $240.

Bib Tights, Bib Knickers

For the coldest days, Nalini offers two full-length tights: The top-of-the- line Datura Bib Tight and the Asterope Bib Tight. The Datura is highly technical bib tight made from a variety fabrics, each serving a specific function, including anti-abrasive fabric on the crotch, a stretchable bib mesh and an integrated knee warmer. The seat pad is the proven UCN Ultra Comfort Nalini pad. The result is a tight-fitting bib tight that keeps riders comfortable on long winter training rides. Available in black, white/black, and blue/black – MSRP $235.

The lower-price point Asterope Bib Tight also delivers superb performance. Available in black only, the Asterope provided front thermal protection, cam-block zippers at the ankle, a rubberized band at the bottom, and reflective inserts. A comfortable Nalini PTN9 saddle is the finishing touch. MSRP $138.

For riders keen on knickers, the Nalini Boga Bib Knicker is a full-season unisex model ideal for medium/cold days. The Boga features a cycling fit, high idrophily (water repellent), anti-abrasion crotch fabric, breathable mesh insert, and reflective tape. Available in black – MSRP $160.

Nalini Baselayers & Accessories

Nalini offers a complete line of baselayers and accessories, including hats, gloves, balaclavas, masks, arm and knee warmers, headbands, and shoe covers.

The most innovative item, though, is the Nalini Cotone long-sleeve base layer. Intended for warm temps (43-54F), the Cotone features seamless construction of a blend of polyester fabrics and is Polar Compatible, with an integrated heart-rate monitor strap and mount on the back. Just snap in the Polar HR sensor and pull on the Cotone – and riders are ready to go. Nalini is the only cycling apparel with this unique Polar feature. The Cotone comes in black – MSRP $100.
