While Q36.5 may seem like a catchy name, developed for today’s world of branding, it actually has a very serious and scientific meaning. Quaerere is the Latin word for research and 36.5° Celsius is the ideal temperature for the human body. Hence Q36.5 is a company on a mission to create technical clothing, which keeps the body at this perfect temperature, regardless of the situation (while also looking good).
All clothing starts with fabric, so that’s where Q36.5 starts with its designs. Q36.5 designs the majority of the fabrics used in its cycling clothing, working in partnership with the best and most creative Italian textile manufacturers. The fabrics are developed exclusively for use in cycling, aiming to be the foundation of garments, which perform one role to perfection, rather than just handy, general-purpose items of clothing.
After the fabric, there comes the cutting process. Q36.5 works on the basis of incorporating only the essentials and eliminating everything else. In this way, they produce garments that are, literally, as light, ergonomic and aerodynamic as they can possibly be; exactly what any keen cyclist needs. As any serious athlete knows, it can be the finest of edges that makes the difference between a win or a loss and Q36.5 is a brand for athletes who want to give themselves every possible edge.
While research is usually the foundation of success, the ultimate test is when theory is put into practice in the real world. Q36.5 is based in the north of Italy, in the famous Dolomite mountains, which can be as challenging as they are beautiful. They are also both a training ground for professional (and aspiring professional) cyclists and a playground for those who simply love the experience of touring in some of the world’s most spectacular scenery. This allows Q36.5 to ensure each and every garment meets its high standards before it is sent out to retailers. Discover Q36.5 on BikeZaar.com.
