An Alternative Choice. Be kind to the environment with the Isadore Alternative Line.
With innovations like making high quality cycling clothing out of recycled plastic, Isadore helps to bring really sustainable practices into the production of cycling clothes. The most recent additions to our Alternative Line mean that everything from your base to bibs to jacket can be all made from recycled materials.
From the beginning we have been a brand committed to reducing our impact on the environment. We want to create high-quality, long-lasting products that are sustainably made.
As a result, we have expanded our selection of Alternative Jerseys, added efficient and comfortable baselayers, included a summer weight 3/4 Bib Shorts for men, and developed a reflective, low profile Alternative Jacket for protection against summer chills.
And as always, everything has been manufactured under highest ecological and ethical standards.
How many PET bottles make one jersey?
1kg of empty PET bottles is needed to make 3 meters of material. We use 1m of fabric for 1 jersey so that is approx. 300g of plastic. The weight of one empty 0.5L PET bottle is about 10g, so for one jersey, we need 30 bottles.
Where we have already been trying to make a difference
We have always worked with fabric suppliers that are OEKO-TEX® approved, which is an independent testing and certification system for raw, semi-finished, and finished textile products.
Alternative Bib Shorts Men/Women
Bib shorts typically have a big impact on how comfortable you feel on your rides. We wanted these Alternative Bib Shorts to have a positive affect on your ride and a minimal impact on the environment.
The Bibs are produced using two fully recycled Italian Lycra fabrics with Coldblack® treatment to keep the fabric cool in the hottest rides. The Italian elastic interface chamois offers high end, long distance comfort where the face of the fabric has been made from recycled materials.
We are continually working with our suppliers to ensure that our fully recycled materials offer the same high quality and top performance level of non-recycled fabrics.

Alternative Essential Jacket
One of those essential items every cyclist needs, the Alternative Jacket provides effective protection from wind and moisture with a breathability that prevents you from overheating. Easily packable, it works well as your first line of defense against windy descents or cool morning mists.
Eco-knit Knee, Leg & Arm Warmers
These are essential accessories for riding in moderate temperatures, when it's too hot to use thermo warmers but too cold to ride without any protection.
The understated look will suit any kit combination, and the 100% recycled Polyamide and Polypropylene yarns will offer high performance moisture wicking with just the right amount of compression.
Knitted in Italy
