No matter whether it’s a road bike, mountain bike or trekking bike, it cannot be denied that cycling is booming, more and more people are joining in–and the sweat is pouring out. This is why there are such high demands on the functionality of bike clothing. It has to be breathable, a good fit, preferably look cool and for racing maybe even fitted with a windbreaker for extreme downhill runs. No matter whether it’s after a mountain biker’s big adrenaline challenge or a road cyclist’s new track record, no cyclist wants to smell of sweat. A fresh feeling on the winner’s podium or just in the beer garden would be much more agreeable.
Vaude, the eco-friendly sportswear manufacturer and the name sponsor of the mountain bike marathon team Centurion Vaude, relies on Sanitized® for its cycling wear. The tops are treated with a hygienie function which prevents the smell of sweat building up. The mountain bikers from the Vaude Centurion team can be proud of their victories in the most extreme mountain bike races, including BIKE Transalp and Ronda Extrema at Lake Garda.
Likewise, the distinguished Swiss bike, snow and street wear brand Zimtstern gives their mountain bike jerseys a real added value with the built-in Sanitized® hygiene function. The bluesign® certification of the Sanitized® technology was an important decision factor for Zimtstern, to ensure that the harmony between high-tech materials and sustainable production persists.
bluesign® is the international quality label for sustainability in the global textile production chain. As a System Partner, SANITIZED is a founding member.
