rPET – Our Italian partners take end of life plastic bottles and turn these into high performance yarns, in a process we like to call Wash, Chip, Melt, Spin. All of the printable elements of our teamwear are made from rPET.
Polyamide – Fishing nets and carpets are a source of high quality Polyamide (nylon). These are collected and reprocessed in Italy to create a brand new and very high quality nylon. We take fabrics with a combination of Econyl and elastane (for stretch/compression) to create the solid colour elements of our garments (such as modesty areas on bib shorts/tri suits, etc).
Recycled Elastane – we have recently started working with a mill which produces garments made with rPET/Polyamide and recycled pre consumer Elastane. It’s a world first and is another step forward in the sustainability of our clothing.
