BASELAYER SYSTEM / Baselayer taken from Nature

BASELAYER SYSTEM

EUROBIKE AWARD

BASELAYER SYSTEM

EUROBIKE AWARD

How to get a first layer (baselayer) at the body, with a faster moisture transfer and furthermore is lightweight?

Rocks from volcanic origin are grinded to finest particles and transferred into and onto the Polyester yarn fiber in a special process.

Result:
A micro fabric with porous structure...

1.) ...has an enlarged surface thus speeding up the moisture transfer by three times without washing or wearing out.

2.) ...captures odor. The material is refreshed with normal washing. This is completely without harmful silver ions.

3.) ...reduces weight.
